I over heated,the serpentine belt snapped. Opened the hood to find steam rapidly coming out of both the antifreeze and out of the engine right by the head gasket. It wasn't smoke not blue or black jus


Perform a compression test on your cylinders. One unfortunate result of overheating is the blown head gasket. Without compression your motor will not run. Tester are not super expensive or some stores will lend tools.

98 malibu won't start


Recommend to locate the crank pulley on the front of the motor.
This pulley should be about 5 to 10 inches in diameter, and it usually is the pulley closest to the ground. It is on the front of the engine, but your engine being crosswise, that may mean the passenger side of the car.
This pulley drives the serpentine belt.
In the middle of this pulley is a large bolt that holds the pulley on. Find a socket to fit that bolt, and a long extension handle to fit that socket. You will need to be under the car to do this.There may be plastic shields in your way. Try to turn this bolt Clockwise, as you are wanting to turn the crankshaft, not loosen the bolt. If the crankshaft turns, the engine should not be "froze up". If that pulley won't turn, the motor may be "gone".

If i remove my aircon compresser will my car still be safe to drive ???


If you remove the A/C compressor and don't make the needed changes for the serpentine belt to still be installed, then no it won't be safe ot drive. You won't have any power steering for one and that would make turning the wheels extremely difficult. Since the water pump also need the sepentine belt to operate, your engine will overheat in a short amount of time.

Replacing a serpentine belt


Don't have a chart, video, or diagram available at the moment. Can offer you generic advice.

1.Somewhere in the middle of that serpentine belt, that is wrapped around all those pulleys, is an Idler tensioner Pulley. All this pulley does, is put tension on that serpentine belt. Usually located somewhere in the middle.

The Idler tensioner Pulley will be on a bracket. It will be on the end of the bracket. The bracket usually has a 1/2 inch square hole in it. This is used for a tool, that resembles a 1/2 inch breaker bar.
-> I, use a 1/2 inch breaker bar.
The 1/2 inch breaker bar is inserted into this square hole, and the bracket is pulled to one side.
This pulls the tensioner pulley away from the serpentine belt, allowing the belt to have slack, and then the belt is slipped off of one of those pulleys. Release the pressure slowly, remove the tool. Then the serpentine belt is removed all the way.

(The Idler tensioner pulley bracket, can only be moved in one direction, to take pressure off of the serpentine belt. The direction opposite, of it putting pressure on the serpentine belt.

The spring used to put pressure is Very strong. This is also an area, where you can easily slip, cutting your knuckles, or fingers, or hand, on sharp objects. Use caution, you may want to wear a glove, or gloves!)

Then the new serpentine belt is wound around the pulleys in the correct pattern, the Idler Tensioner Pulley is once again pulled to the side, and the last of the serpentine belt is slid into place. Then you slowly release the tensioner pulley, and it puts pressure on the serpentine belt once more.

Make sure the serpentine belt is in the grooves of the pulleys, and is wound around in the correct pattern.

On the car hood inside, or on the radiator support, or perhaps on the inner fender well, or in the Owners Manual, it should show the correct pattern for installing the serpentine belt.
