hi,

let me clarify the belt names for you before that, the fan or serpentine belt is the belt which all the accessories run on like the alternator and power steering pump and is different from the timing belt completely. the timing belt is hidden away and you cannot see it on most cars and keeps the camshaft in sequence with the crankshaft, Im not entirely sure but I believe ford V6s have a timing chain. heres the deal, the idler tensioner pulley has to have some tension put on it to bend it up and out of the way while you place the serpentine belt, study the ider tensioner pulley closely and the diagram under the hood, the idler pulley has a large bolt in the middle which you have to put a socket and wrench on .using force against the spring loaded pulley, either push down or up on the pulley with the wrench to temporarily give you the clearance needed to set the belt and gently release, (having a helper helps) once you doublecheck that the belt is PERFECT then start the car. My 83 LTD's idler pulley is adjusted with a bolt, I believed they have changed it to the spring loaded design that I spoke about above, if its the spring loaded design, that should do it,
good luck

SOURCE: timing belt tensioner

On the Rio 2002, the tensionner is only used to apply pressure to the timing belt (installation) and cannot be adjusted. Once install the tensionner is "auto adjust" using a spring. If you need to adjust it,may be it time to change the timing belt KIT. Around 60,000 M.

SOURCE: timing belt tensioner

Just put a piece of pipe over your socket wrench and problem solved. Don't know why you need to get under, just take off air intake with one nut will make access a lot easier.

Ryobi s430 replace timing belt


the ryobi s430 has a hole in the timing wheel with ,perhaps a red mark on it or next to it like mine.lining that up with the piece at the bottom that goes straight down puts the cam lobes right at 180 degrees away from the rockers and readies the valvetrain for the compression stroke.if you remove the valve cover,which by the way has a really tough reusable gasket,youll see the cam and rocker arms.you want the lobes of the cams to be as fara away from operating the rocker arms as possible.next, you ll find top dead center to be not quite lined up, with respect to magneto edges and flywheel magnets.using a tiny screwdriver, you can put the tip in the spark plug hole not quite an inch and rotate the flywheel SLOWLY.being careful not to somehow allow the screwdriver to become pinched between the piston and cylinder(that spark plug hole is at a funky angle)at some point,youll fee fell the piston approach top dead center.youll notice there are a few degrees that the flywheel will turn before the screwdriver will fall back down,indicating travel has begun toward bdc(bottomdead center).you want the crank asembly to be set in the center point between when the screwdriver stops rising out of the spark plug hole to the point it just starts to fall back in.that should be close enough.my problem now is getting the timing belt OFF.mine is bad and I've torn down all the way past the flywheel.at this point,i can see the timing belt,but now there's this pressed bearing in the way that ive yet to figure out how to remove.viva la ryobi

I am trying to hange the serpentine belt on my 09 lancer rallyart and it keeps slipping off


Locate the two belts on the left side (passenger side) of your Mitsubishi Lancer. The outer belt is a serpentine belt, operating four pulleys and the inner belt is your alternator belt.

  • 2 Follow the serpentine (outer) belt to the three pulleys lined up vertically near the front of the engine compartment. Locate the middle pulley, which is the tension pulley for the belt.
  • 3 Loosen the bolt on the middle pulley with a socket wrench by turning counter-clockwise. Do not remove the bolt, just turn it a couple of times. Loosen the tensioner bolt on the side of the of the pulley, facing the front of the vehicle.
  • 4 Remove the serpentine belt and then loosen the bolt on the alternator. With the alternator loose, move it forward so that the alternator belt loosens up and then remove belt from the pulleys.
  • 5 Install the new alternator belt by placing it over both inside pulleys. Tighten the tension on the alternator belt by moving the alternator back and keeping tension on it by holding it back with a long screwdriver. While the alternator belt is tight, use a socket wrench to tighten up the bolt on the alternator.
  • 6 Place the serpentine belt back on the pulleys and then use a socket wrench on the bolt on the front of the tension pulley. Once the serpentine belt is tight, tighten up the bolt in the middle of the tension pulley.
  • 7 Start the Mitsubishi Lancer's engine to test the alternator belt and make sure it is working properly. Once you have verified it is working, turn the engine off.

    Timing belt or timing chain?


    You 98 Corolla has a timing chain that it internal and need no normal maintenance. It uses a hydraulic/spring tensioner to keep things tight and as long as its quiet, everything is fine.
    Your drive belt (not to be confused with a t. belt) is the external belt you see on the passenger side of the engine. It drives you alt, water pump, A/C and power steering. It uses a spring loaded tensioner to keep the belt tight. These can weaken over time and cause a rattle noise and belt slippage.

    Can anybody tell me why elantra keeps popping up when i need a manual for a lantra 1600 is there a manual that matches this from another model


    I found the best way is to take the idle pulley off first then with a little effort you can slide it over the cam pulley. Then reinstall the belt tensioner/ idler pulley and adjust. Do not over tension the belt .

    HOW DO I ADJUST MY TIMING BELT ON MY 1994 CIVIC


    I know of no adjustment for the timing belt, they have a spring loaded tensioner that keeps the belt tight. Honda wants you to change the belt every 90,000 mile. I would always change the tensioner and the water pump, which is driven by the timing belt, at the same time. If there is any question about how long the belt has been on the engine, replace it, you do not want the belt to fail at highway speed.
