U either have the wrong belt or it is routed wrong or the belt is not fully seated in the grooves of the pulleys.

How do you replace the serpentine belt on a 1995 Buick century 4 cylinder?


This is the advertised procedure:

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Except Serpentine Belt
It may be necessary to loosen more than one pulley or remove another belt to access the drive belt, such as the power steering and air conditioning.
  1. Loosen the driven accessory's pivot and mounting bolts.
  2. Move the accessory toward or away from the engine until there is enough slack in the belt to slip it over the pulley of the driven accessory.
  3. Remove the belt from the engine.
  4. Install the new belt and move the accessory toward or away from the engine until the tension is correct. You can use a wooden hammer handle as a lever, but do not use anything metallic.
  5. Adjust the belt tension, then tighten the bolts.
Serpentine Belt
  1. Place a tool over the tensioner pulley axis bolt.
  2. Rotate the tool counterclockwise to relieve belt tension.
  3. Remove the drive belt.
  4. Carefully release the tensioner pulley and remove the tool.
To install:
  1. Route the belt over the pulleys, except tensioner.
  2. Place tool over tensioner, rotate counterclockwise and install belt.
  3. Remove the tool, then check alignment of tension and belt.

Need the spec on installing a tension pully for a 2003 ford taurus


Not sure what spec your looking for. I replaced the tensioner pully on my F-150 302 last year though. And basically the bolt is left hand thread and turning the bolt gives the slack in belt needed to take belt off, and put back on. Hope this helps.

Install ac belt--how to ajust tension pully


What engine?

It should have an automatic tensioner for the serpentine belt. If the tensioner does not automatically rotate and take up the slack in the belt than it is bad and needs to be replaced.

How do i adjust the timing belt on a 94 honda accord?


you should not have to adjust the timeing belt unless you are installing it. if you are installing it. I rotate the crank to take out the slack, and put the slack on the tensioner side. loosen the tensioner pull and pull it up tight with your hand and release it allowing the spring to keep the tension while you tighten the tensioner pully bolt.
If they ar too tight they make a high pitch groan heard easiest when reving up the engine. If the are too loose they may skip time. not good.

Installation of new serpentine belt on 2002 Chevy Cavalier


Use a 3/8" socket end to rotate the tensioner counter clockwise. It may seem stiff, but that's a good thing... you want the tension to be there. After it's off the tensioner the belt will pretty much just come out of place and off the other pulleys. ***make sure you orientate the belt as it was originally (ac or w/ ac)...diagram should be on the front shroud.

Installing accessory belt on 94 Buick P/Ave ultra.


You must press on tensioner to make room for new belt. The tensioner then re-traps and keep belt tension when new belt in on. So in other words you have to put belt over all othe pulley leaving tensioner for last using a 3/8 ratchet with out a socket (just the square end) in the hole thats in the tensioner pushdown/up to make room for belt to slide on. If the belt seems short make sure that it is routed the correct way. Good Luck get back to me if you need more help and leave me a "rating". Thanks
