Where is the tension pully on a 1993 ford taurus 3.0 motor


there is no spring tensioner on some of the 3.0 engines. See instructions below. I will paste a pic on the version that DOES have a tensioner at the bottom of this post.

3.0L Engine-Except SHO
ALTERNATOR BELT WITHOUT AUTOMATIC TENSIONER

  1. Loosen the adjusting arm and pivot bolts.
  2. Turn the alternator belt adjusting screw counterclockwise until the old belt can be removed.
  3. Remove the belt.

To install:
  1. Install the new belt over the pulleys. Check that all the V-grooves make proper contact with the pulleys.
  2. Adjust the belt tension, then tighten the adjusting arm and pivot bolts.

3.0L SHO Engine
ALTERNATOR BELT
See Figure 2
  1. Loosen the nut in the center of the idler pulley.
  2. Loosen the idler adjusting screw until the old belt can be removed, then remove the belt.

To install:
  1. Install the new belt over the pulleys in proper contact with the pulleys.
  2. Adjust the new belt to specifications as follows: Turn the idler pulley nut to the right to tighten the belt to a specification of 220-265 lbs. (980-1180 N). Torque the idler pulley nut to 25-37 ft. lbs. (34-50 Nm).

POWER STEERING AND AIR CONDITIONING BELT
See Figure 2
  1. Remove the alternator belt.
  2. Loosen the nut on the tensioner pulley.
  3. Turn the belt adjusting screw on the tensioner counterclockwise until the belt can be removed, then remove the belt.

To install:
  1. Position the new belt over the proper pulleys, making sure the V-grooves are properly seated.
  2. Install the alternator belt.
  3. Adjust the power steering and air conditioning belt to a specification of 154-198 lbs. (690-980 N) with a belt tension gauge.
  4. Adjust the alternator belt.
3.0L Engine (Except SHO) and 3.8L Engine
VEHICLES THROUGH 1993 WITH AUTOMATIC TENSIONER

See Figures 4 and 5
  1. Insert a 1 / 2 in. breaker bar into the square hole in the tensioner.

On the 3.8L engine, the tensioner has a1/2in. square hole cast into the rear of the tension arm directly behind the pulley. On the 3.0L engine, the1/2in. square hole is cast into the spring housing on the front of the tensioner.
  1. Rotate the tensioner clockwise and remove the belt.

To install:

  1. Install the drive belt over all the pulleys, except for the alternator pulley on the 3.0L engine for vehicles through 1992, or the idler pulley for 1993 3.0L vehicles.
  2. Rotate tensioner counterclockwise and install the belt over the alternator pulley. Make sure that all the V-grooves make proper contact with the pulleys.
  3. On the 3.0L engine, install the alternator belt for vehicles through 1992.
  4. For 1993 3.0L vehicles, install the drive belt over the idler pulley.

I need the diagram for the serpinetine belt on a 1991 dodge spirit 3.0


The path of pulleys around which the belt goes (beginning with the crankshaft pulley, and moving clockwise around the array of pulleys) is in this order:
tensioner pulley (belt goes around the pulley counter-clockwise)
power steering pulley (belt goes...clockwise)
alternator (belt...clockwise)
idler pulley (belt going under the pulley)
and back to the crank pulley (belt...clockwise).

My 1993 dodge shadow will not start, it will turn


Does it sound like a screeching or grinding sound? If so - it could be the starter is going out - there is a part called the bendix spring that is probably not engaging completely and it will cause the teeth of the starter to not fully engage the flywheel - which makes an awful sound.

Hope this helps and good luck!

I need routing diagram to install alternator belt on 89 dodge shadow


I've been looking and I can't find a pic of the actual diagram. However, here's how it routes. I goes around the alternator, to the water pump, then to the crank pulley in between the power steering v-belt and the A/C v-belt. Here's a good view of the belts.

1993 dodge shadow timing belt


get yourself a Hanes repair manual for your car. These books helped me alot with my 1995 civic. I believe they also have a book for your shadow. The book contains everything that you could probably fix for your car. From engine rebuilding to chassis repair.

I need to know how to put my serpentine belt back on


If it's a V6 then take a long wrench ( I don't remember what size) and compress the serpentine tensioner. It is right under/next to the alternator. Just hook onto the bolt in the middle of the pulley.
