Make sure they have given u the correct belt, match it to the length to the old one, make sure the belt is seated in the pulley grooves, even one missed groove will make it very hard to install, is this your question, if not let me know. Happy New year!

The large belt that goes over several pulleys is not broken, the huge round thing attached to a rod broke off, there are no screws , it would have to be welded or replaced. I need to see a picture to show...


Hello srmlj: My name is Roger and I will help you. From what you described I would think either the water pump shaft broke or the belt tensioner broke. Attached is a belt diagram that lists the components that te belt runs. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. This way I know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Rogeraca6a01.jpg

Timing belt Broke are valves worped?


Hello momma_green: My name is Roger and I will help you. The 2005 Chevy Aveo 1.6 engine is a interference motor. That means if the timing belt breaks.The valves will be bent. I have one in my shop now that the belt broke on it. Bent all 16 valves and damaged all 4 pistons. This is not a forgiving motor. I wish I could tell you good news but I cant. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

I have a 2000 Lincoln Towncar. The air-conditioner compressor broke and also broke that big belt. A guy that lives near replaced the compressor and belt but now nothing electric works!!!! whats wrong!!!!!...


He may have accidently knocked some wires loose during the install or when your belt flew off the pullies it hit some wires and broke them. Check for wire damage around the pullies.

'93 Mercury Sable Serpentine Belt installation without using AC


You need to have an automotive technitian install a new belt because there is a certain path the belt must follow before it will go on, plus the belt must go around the A/c as it is part of the path. You just don't have to use the A/C.

Tell the tech that the belt broke so that he can look for a reason as to why the belt broke.
