Re: tension i think thats what it is the little black box...
Hi my name is Allen!
Here is how to check your tensioner, with the engine not running, grab the belt and pull on it very hard, you will feel it move toward you let it go and if it return to it original position and you pull on it slightly and it feels tight your tensioner is OK. If the belt it floppy then you need a tensioner.
As for the noise it could be anyone of the pulleys on the front of your engine. You can try to see if they wobble by hand with engine not running, just grab one pulley at a time and see if any of them wobble. If you find one wobbling that part will need to be replaced, not the pulley, but the part behind the pulley.

I assume that you are talking about the black plastic tube that runs from the lower intake to the tensioner. There is another black plastic tube that goes out the bottom of the tensioner too. These have little O rings towards the ends. The plastic breaks at that point and when you remove the plastic tube you have to try to fish the end out. Both of these tubes come in a little container. I think that they are like 5 bux at oreillys. If you let them know what you are looking for, they usually have it out on the shelf.
I assume the "little black box" referred to is the front fuse panel. Next to it, towards the windshield is the coolant overflow canister. At the base of these there is a metal coolant line that is clamped to the car body. After years of vibration this starts to leak. Not too difficult to replace.
it sounds like you have a line hooked up to the wrong spot, and that little black box sounds like the charcoal canister, which is used to filter out fuel vapors. it sounds like either the supply or return line has been hooked into the vapor line. retrace your steps, largest diameter line is supply, medium is return, smallest line is vapor line. good luck!
LOOK AT HOW BELT IS ROUTED EVEN DRAW YOURSELF A LITTLE DIAGRAM MAYBE DIAGRAM ON FAN SHROUD AREA IF YOU LOOK NEXT YOUR TENSIONER WILL HAVE A PLACE FOR A 3/8'' RATCHET OR A 13,14,15MM BOLT HEAD PLACE APPROPIATE TOOL ON TENSIONER AND RELEASE TENSION
ENSURE THE AIR PRESSURE IN ALL 4 TIRES ARE THE SAME. CHRYSLER UNWITTINGLY HAS A TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitor System) by having an ABS light.
When 1 tire turns slower (or faster) than the other 3, the ABS lamp illuminates when it thinks the wheels aren't turning the same speed, (they aren't). When properly inflated, (or all 4 at least at the same pressure, the ABS Lamp will go out soon, (not immediately). Maybe on the next drive cycle.
When your running out of gas the dirt, grime, and gunk is all you have left except water and that may cause it to surge then slow down irrelevant to the gas pedal pressure.
I've had a similar problem when I ran out of gas
I would try a can of expensive fuel cleaner and a can of dry gas before anything else but that's just me!
have you pulled a plug out to see if its firing when you try to start it?Has the ignition got a 12v power supply when cranking the engine not just when the ignition is turned on?If it has those requirements it should at least try to start if the rest of the engine and timing is ok
