Noise coming from front of engine changed auxillary belt and tensioner noise went but came back after a week


you may have a belt that is not correctly tightened, the weather has changed and you hear more and more belts squealing. check tension on your belts it could be too tight or loose, but if you replaced the other things you mentioned I suspect either water pump or other pulley or just the tension on the belts..

How to install serpentine belt 1988 ford 150


Loosen the lock bolt on the upper part of the tensioner(arrowed in black). Release tension on the belt at the tensioner(arrowed in red) by turning counter clockwise on the pulley nut as indicated in blue.
Slip the belt off the pulleys while keeping pressure on the tensioner. Refit the new belt and make sure it is properly located on all the pulleys before releasing pressure on the tensioner. Tighten the lock bolt.
The tensioner is self adjusting you just need to make sure the belt is properly seated on all the pulleys before tightening the lock bolt.
The exact position of the tensioner varies on the different engines but the routing is the same and it is always between the alternator and power steering pulleys on the gas engines.
C - Cranshaft
A - AIR pump
Alt - alternator
W - Water pump

I have a 2.3 how do i install the timing belt


Align harmonic damper mark at TDC with #1 piston at top. You'll have to remove harmonic damper on front of crank. (You can do it without removing the damper, but it's a real pain in the rear.) This WILL require an industrial strength impact wrench to break the bolt loose. Pull spark plugs. Makes last step easy and you can use a screwdriver to make sure #1 is at top. You'll see tick marks on the crank pulley, the cam pulley and the auxillary shaft pulley. These marks must line up. Use a straight edge (ruler, piece of flat metal stock, etc.) to make sure they're aligned. Pull tensioner arm back and lock it there. Install belt around pullies. Now comes the tricky part. Whne you release the tensioner, the auxillary shaft will rotate at least one tooth off of alignment. Release tension and compensate auxillary shaft postion. You want the marks aligned with the belt under tension. Now using a long wrench, rotate the engine clockwise by turning the crank balancer bolt. After 2 complete revolutions back to TDC, confirm timing mark alignment on the pullies. If they're off, redo it until they're aligned. Good luck.

How to change the water pump on a ford escort 1.3gle 1986 model


  1. Let me know if you cannot see diagrams(happens sometimes) or if you have any questions
Just to make sure. I assume that you are seeing coolant leakage from around the water pump assembly.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Place fender covers on the aprons.
  3. Drain the cooling system.
  4. Remove the accessory drive belts.
  5. Remove the timing belt cover.
  6. Use a wrench on the crankshaft pulley to rotate the engine so No. 1 piston is on TDC of the compression stroke.
Turn the engine only in the direction of normal rotation. Backward rotation will cause the timing belt to slip or lose teeth.
  1. Loosen the belt tensioner attaching bolts, then secure the tensioner over as far as possible.
  2. Pull the belt from the camshaft, tensioner, and water pump sprocket. Do not remove it from, or allow it to change its position on, the crankshaft sprocket.
WARNINGDo not rotate the engine with the timing belt removed or serious engine damage could occur. The 1.3L and 1.6L engines are of the "interference type," meaning it is possible for the valves to contact the pistons if their reciprocation is not carefully timed and controlled. An engine allowed to spin freely without the timing belt could bend valves and scuff pistons almost instantly.
  1. Remove the camshaft sprocket.
  2. Remove the rear timing cover stud.
  3. Remove the heater return tube hose connection at the water pump inlet tube.
  4. Remove the water pump inlet tube fasteners and the inlet tube and gasket.
  5. Unfasten the water pump to the cylinder block bolts and remove the water pump and its gasket.

  1. Make sure the mating surfaces on the pump and the block are clean.
  2. Using a new gasket and sealer, install the water pump. Tighten the bolts to 30-40 ft. lbs. (40-55 Nm) on 1981-87 models, or to 15-22 ft. lbs. (20-30 Nm) on 1988-90 models. Make sure the pump impeller is able to turn freely.
  3. Install the water pump inlet tube and the inlet tube gasket and fasteners.
  4. Install the rear timing cover stud. Install the heater return tube hose connection at the water pump inlet tube.
  5. Install the camshaft sprocket.
  6. Install the belt from the camshaft, timing belt tensioner, and water pump sprocket.

  1. Tighten the belt tensioner attaching bolts, then secure the tensioner over as far as possible.
  2. Install the timing belt cover.
  3. Install the accessory drive belts.
  4. Refill the cooling system and reconnect the negative battery cable.

Diagram for fan belt repair


2.0L Engines
See Figures 11, 12 and 13
The accessory drive belt for 2.0L engines has no provision for manual belt adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner.
Movement of the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension.
The belt tensioner has a belt length indicator. If the indicator marks are not between the MIN and MAX marks, the belt must be replaced.
