SOURCE: how to change/remove an alternator belt on a 1998

There is a tensioner in the front of the motor. It looks like a pulley on an arm. The front of the tensioner has a square spot. You can get on that with a 3/4" or I think a 19mm wrench. Rotate the whole thing counter clockwise. This will release the tension on the belt. With your other hand, or an assistant slide the belt off of the alternator pulley. You can let the tensioner down now. Go easy because it will go further than it was before. You dont want to loose any skin off of your knuckles!

There should be a belt routing diagram under there somewhere. Run it around everything else then pull it up to the alternator pulley again. Again pull the tensioner up. Slip the belt onto the pulley and let go. Get a light and make sure that the belt is completely on all of the pulleys. It is possible to have it riding on the edge.

Start it up and check it out. Youre done!

Which fuse box do i check for fuse for cruise control

There is actuly 2 differant fuse #12 the brake fuse #12 10 amp and fuse #1 the stop and haz 20 amp .But neighter are likely the problem . There is another brake switch for the cruise control called the TCC brake and cruise control relese switch that tells the transmission when the brake is applyed and shut of the cruise control . This is more likely the problem its up under the dask near the steering colluom follow the wires from the main brake switch on the pedel if you have a standard then it will run through the clutch switch as well .Fuse #12 also controls the muilty function switch but fuse #1 is the brake input switch . So if the lights and blinkers work i would look at the TCC brake switch first thank you

I have an 88 Cavalier Z24 with 5sp man. transmission and a 2.8 V6 with cruise control. The car will not start. I parked it the previous night and went to start in the morning it cranks, I checked for...

Yes, the crank sensor is used both for spark timing and tach/shift switch. Check the connector and wiring first. The sensor is centered on the back of the engine. If that looks OK, put a new sensor in. They only cost $14 at autozone.
