I have a 1997 mazda protege 1.5 liter my alternator belt keeps snapping... any idea why?


with the belt off, check to make sure pulleys turn freely, make sure no pulley is damaged, bent, wobbling, or severely misaligned with the others.

If my timing belt goes out while driving do i need to replace the motor


No not unless it bent valves. Replace the belt first and see if the engine starts. I replaced a belt on one of these last month, the belt had snapped. It didn't bend anything. I replaced the belt and all was good.

MY BELTS SNAPPED AND BENT PULLEY IS IT TENSIONER OR PULLEY NEEDS REPLACING


Kind of a vague question here. I am assuming you are speaking of the pulley that is attached to the tensioner is bent. Either way I would suggest in replacing the tensioner. They have just he pulley you can take off your tensioner and rebuild it, but it is easier for the cost, and as a point of preventive maintnace to replace the entire tensioner, for the entire tensioner either 4 cyl or 6 is around 96$

My timing belt snapped and I took it to a mechanic. he said that the belt snap the piston head and the bent the valves. I am wanting second opinion, and would like to know if the timing belt is connected...


The pistons will hit and bend the valves if the timing belt snaps because they are very close.The alternator does not connect to the timing belt, there is a separate belt that runs the alternator.

I have a 1997 nissan Maxima. It is 6 cylinders. i am going on my third harmonic balance. The top pulley keeps seperating from the bottom pulley which are held together by a rubber core assembly. Trying...


Might be that one of your other pulleys is bent and over the course of a month it wobbles the belt and causes the harmonic balancer to split apart. Check all the other pulleys to see if they wobble or are bent.

51 plate 1.8 16v petrol, aux belt shredded and wrapped itself under cam belt for second time in 3 years ! EVERY VALVE BENT


you need to have the timing gears changed and have the mechanic check end play on the crank shaft and the end play on the cam and check the tensioner pulley for wear. If these are ok then you will need to see if it's a bad belt, Never use after market parts for timing belts use factory parts so it will last longer. This is a common thing for a mechanic to forget to check when replacing the timing belt. Hope this helps and thanks for using Fix-ya.

The alternator belt keeps breaking on a 2000 mazda 626 it has been replaced 4 times and all of the mechanics say they cannot find any prolbems no bearing prolbems no pulley misalligment


What they mean is there is no obvious problems. What else runs off that belt? Check for misalignment there. What makes it break? Does it happen after a long trip ( 2 hrs. highway driving) or at timed intervals ( every month, 6wks)?
Carefully check all the pulley's for sharp edges or bump outs into the belt. If you find anything use a small file and smooth them out. They can cut or pinch your belt and weaken it so it breaks over time.
Check the pulley alignment with the engine running where you can see all the pulleys and belts at the same time. This might mean crawling under the car. Vary the engine speed while you watch and take it up to cruising speed. You are looking for something to change, i.e a pulley to start wobbling. It could be a mounting bracket that bends at higher revs that needs to be replaced or strengthened.
Hope this helps.
