My serpantine belt is not turning one of the wheels. It is the second wheel moving clockwise from the wheel at the top of the belt. What component does this wheel run?


Get it fixed very soon!! (Fire hazard for one...). Definite breakdown for two (b/c the belt will get hot and break very soon). You want all of them "wheels" turning nicely and "freely"!

How do you remove the timing belt cover on a 1995 VW Golf.


What is needed Tools: 6mm and 8mm allen wrench socket, 5mm allen wrench. 8mm, 13mm, 19mm socket and ratchet. 10mm combination wrench. Long ratchet extensions (at least one 6in, more are helpful). 5inch Wheel puller (for main shaft pulley). (Some models may need a special spanner tool to adjust the timing belt tensioner) Parts: 2 gal of anti-freeze mixed with distilled water. All three V-belts. (Alt, A/C, P/S) $32.95 New water pump top. $91.91 New gasket for WP. $9.13 New timing belt. $26.13.


Procedure:

Remove battery cable (either power (+) or ground (-)) remove alternator remove A/C remove power steering pump .Remove water pump pulleys remove main shaft pulleys remove timing belt covers remove A/C mounting hardware remove timing belt (don't turn any of the wheels its connected to) replace timing belt adjust belt tension remove water pump face put on new gasket and new part.

Leave pulleys off. replace bottom timing belt cover, replace crank shaft pulley, replace steering pump, replace A/C, put small belt on A/C (hang loose) put large belt around A/C, Main and water pump pulley. put middle size belt on Main water pump and power steering pump reattach bolts for the steering pump pulleys put alternator back on adjust all belts. connect battery

Problem areas:
Main pulley: There are 4 6mm hex head bolts. These must be removed. The main 19mm hex head can be used to turn the engine it the timing belt slips and you have to readjust the timing.

Putting on new belts: This can be a real pain if you get VW belts. The adjustments won't give enough to put the belts over the edge so the easy way is to remove the pulley on the water pump. Then its real easy.

Timing: If you turn the wheels that the timing belt goes on you will have to reset the timing. Mark the timing points with something like whiteout so its easy to see. The timing mark on the toothed gears are small dots. The timing mark for the crankshaft is a small cut on the outer pulley. When its aligned with the intermediate wheel timing mark (there is an arrow on the cover as a hint) should intersect as viewed from the right wheel well. The camshaft timing mark should line up with the top of the engine near the front.

Power steering pump: It is held on with lots of bolts. One is in a channel that is hard to see but can be found with a 6" extension. If you look at the pump you will see three bolts that go into the housing. This should give you an idea where the forth is.

Car wont start after over heating


Sometimes when the waterpump leaks it leaks onto the timing belt making it slippery the timing belt probably jumped a tooth, to check this purchase a compression tester unscrew a spark plugs and screw the tester into the spark plug hole, have an assistant turn the engine over for 5 seconds wright down the reading proceed to test all 4 cylinder the compression should be a minimum of 110 psi on all if one of the readings is 50 psi the timing belt must be replaced, either way you must perform a compression test to rule out a timing belt issue first.

Squeeky belt and front wheel vibration after having belts replaced


I would guess your two issues are separate. The squealing belt could be an adjustment problem or a wet or damaged belt. Belts can vary, how long they last. I have replaced them the next year on some cars and others could 3 or 4 years. The tire vibration could be related to the tire tread or some type of tire defect(a bubble in the side wall), may be an alignment problem. Check the steering components, tie-rods, ball joints, and wheel bearings.

The lights dim when the steering wheel is turned


my first thought is it is not your battery if the durango starts up fine. i would go right to your belt. sounds to me like it is slipping. it may be just worn and stretched a bit, not allowing it to properly turn and generate power to the altenator. a rule of thumb is if your belts and hoses are over 5 years old replace them no matter how the look. my second thought would be the altenator, not putting enough juice out to charge the system. but try your belt first
