Question about 1992 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

How to release the tension pulley on a 1992 Dodge caravan 3.3L. We have tried to put a wrench or socket on the bolt and rotate the pulley arm clockwise but it does not want to budge. How much tension or torque should it take to release the tension enough to slip on the new belt?

Replacing fan belt?what tools are required?


Instructions

Things You'll Need
3/8-inch drive breaker bar
Metric sockets
Serpentine belt

1 Open the hood and inspect the flat surface on top of the plastic fan shroud for the belt routing diagram. Follow the diagram instructions to route the new belt.

2 Locate the serpentine belt self-adjusting tensioner on the front of the engine block. The tensioner has a pulley on the bottom of the tensioner arm, which the belt travels under. The tensioner can only be rotated from the bolt that secures the pulley to the tensioner arm.

3 Rotate the tensioner in a clockwise motion with a metric socket and the breaker bar to loosen the tension from the belt. Then, pull the belt off the top of the tensioner pulley. Release the tensioner pulley and pull the breaker bar off the pulley bolt.

4 Pull the belt out of the accessory pulleys. Then, slide the belt around each fan blade and out of the engine bay. Rotate each fan blade to the top side of the engine to get the belt around each fan blade.

5 Match both the new belt and the old belt together to make sure that the new belt is the correct size. Then, route the new belt around each fan blade and around the crankshaft pulley. The crankshaft pulley is the big pulley at the very bottom of the engine.

6 Follow the routing directions from the belt routing diagram to install the new belt around the other accessory pulleys. Once the belt has been routed around all of the pulleys, look over the belt and make sure that it is secure inside all of the pulleys.

7 Crank the 1998 Dodge Caravan and let the motor run for about 15 seconds. This will finish seating the ridges of the new belt into the grooves of each accessory pulley.

8 Shut the motor off and close the hood.

How do I release tension to put fan belt on


If you have the v-belt type, you have to loosen the alternator or power steering pump.

If you have the serpentine belt type, follow these directions:

Serpentine Belt
  1. On all models except the 7.4L engine with A.I.R. pump (California emissions only), use a 1/2 in. breaker bar with a socket placed on the tensioner pulley bolt, rotate the tensioner to relieve belt tension.
  2. On all 7.4L engines with a A.I.R. pump (California emissions only), use a suitable wrench on the pulley axis bolt to rotate the tensioner clockwise to relieve belt tension.
  3. Remove the serpentine belt.

To install:

  1. Route the belt over all the pulleys except the tensioner.
  2. On all models except the 7.4L engine with A.I.R. pump (California emissions only), place the breaker bar and socket on the tensioner pulley bolt and rotate the tensioner to the released position.
  3. Install the belt and return the pulley to its original position.
  4. On all 7.4L engines with a A.I.R. pump (California emissions only), use a suitable wrench on the pulley axis bolt to rotate the tensioner clockwise to relieve belt tension.
  5. Install the belt and return the pulley to its original position.
  6. Check that the belt is properly seated in each pulley

How do i release tension on a 2004 pontiac vibe


Take note of the tensioner pulley and the tensioner arm that extends from the pulley. The tensioner pulley is the smallest pulley and has a metal arm extending from it. A bolt is located near the top of the arm. Place a ?? mm wrench on the tensioner arm bolt and rotate it forward to relieve the tension on the belt. Do not release the tensioner arm.
Pull the belt off of the pulleys and slowly rotate the tensioner arm back into its original position.




  • Step 3 Place a 15 mm wrench on the tensioner arm bolt and rotate it forward to relieve the tension on the belt. Do not release the tensioner arm.
  • Step 4 Pull the belt off of the pulleys and slowly rotate the tensioner arm back into its original position.

    Replace serpentine belt on 1992 dodge grand


    Click on the following free direct Link.
    It has the correct Belt Diagrams for your 1992 Dodge Grand Caravan wirh either the 3.0L SOHC V6 or the 3.3L V6.

    http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_information/year/1992/make/dodge/model/grand_caravan/1992_dodge_grand_caravan_drive_belt_routing_diagram.htm


    Included on the Diagrams are the Instructions on "Rotating" the Automatic Tensioner. See Below for additional Instructions to make your job easier.

    "HOW TO": I professionally prefer the Serpentine Tensioner Tool.
    Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
    1. Find the Tensioner(s).
    2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (located on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening located on the Tensioner Arm) rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
    3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
    4. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.

    Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
    a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
    b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
    c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
    d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
    e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them.

    How to change a serpentine belt


    Make sure you know how the belt goes on so you don't second guess yourself when you get the old one off. Find the tensioner pulley which is a pulley that is not running anything. Either in the pulley or on the tension arm the pulley is bolted to you will see a square hole that is the size of a 1/2" drive socket wrench. Get a 1/2" socket/breaker bar and put the square peg in the hole and then pulling the wrench one way or the other will release the tension on the belt so you can remove it. Then put the new belt on in the same way the old one came off and release the tension to get the belt over the tensioner, then release the wrench and you are good to go.

    Good Luck

    Either in the center of the tension pulley or arm the tension pulley is bolted to there is a square hole that a 1/2" drive socket wrench will fit in. Find the hole, put the socket wrench or breaker bar in the holy and rotate it clockwise and that should release the tension.
