Hello;
It sounds as though you have one of the pulleys in bad shape or you may have something rubbing against the belt. Do you have any noise from the belt area? Make sure the pulley grooves are clean and unobstructed. Hope this helps.
Thanks;

One or more pullys are ethier siezed or wobble while spinning. Take the belt off so you can spin every pully and watch for them to wobble or not turn at all.

Please contact me if your problem presists.

Thanks, Charlie

check ur tension pulley

1997 Jeep cherokee larado squeals replaced the drive belt a few times and it keeps tearing


Inspect the belt tensioner for the following conditions:
Noise
  • If the belt squeals, the tensioner force may be insufficient. Check the belt length gauge, if the length is correct, replace the tensioner.
  • If the tensioner clatters or rattles during engine operation, there may be internal interference or wear. Replace the tensioner.
  • If the belt chirps, you may have a worn pulley or tensioner or cracks in the tensioner bas or arm. Check the mounting bolts, if they are okay, replace the tensioner.
Sticking or Seized Tensioner or Idler
  • If the tensioner does not operate smoothly or doesn't move, you may have: internal thrust surface damage/wear, internal damage/wear, or a broken spring, replace the tensioner.
Appearance
  • Inspect the tensioner arm for cracks or other damage. If the tensioner is broken, it should be replaced.
  • Look for excessive tensioner movement at idle, which can indicate internal wear, an out-of-round pulley or loose mounting bolts. Check the mounting bolts, it they are in good condition, replace the tensioner.
  • Make sure the tensioner is not tilted or misaligned. Also make sure a gap exists between the tensioner arm and base. If you notice a problem, check the mounting surface, it the surface is okay, replace the tensioner.
Belt Tracking
  • If the belt does not track properly on the pulley tracking surface, you'll need to troubleshoot the problem. Check the mounting bolts and the system alignment. Then, make sure the correct belt is being used for the vehicle. If all of these things are intact, replace the tensioner.
Belt Length Indicator
  • A belt length indicator is built into each tensioner.
  • The gauge identifies the effective operating range of the tensioner.
  • It consists of a pointer and either two or three length marks.
    • On a three-mark gauge minimum belt length, maximum belt length and ideal belt length are indicated.
    • On a two-mark gauge only minimum belt length and maximum belt length are indicated.
    • Ideal belt length on a two-mark gauge is generally half way between the minimum and the maximum.
  • When a belt wears and stretches with age the tensioner will move towards the maximum belt length to maintain proper tension.
  • As the pointer nears the maximum length mark, replace the belt.

Will 96 rear end work in a 99 grand cherokee


A 96 Grand Cherokee rear end is not compatible with the 99. The Grand Cherokee changed body styles in 99, and among other things, the bolt pattern for the wheels changed.

I can't find the belt tensioner for a 96 grand cherokee.


There should be a picture diagram of the belt routing on serpentine models located under the hood in the front of the engine compartment which should show you exactly where it's at if not just email me back the clarification information

Power steering pump


First check the distance from the bracket mount points on the block, to the pump mount points on both brackets. If distance is different then the brackets are different. If they are the same, you may need to either change pump itself to one that matches engine year. However, if there is sufficient room on the pump shaft, any shop that rebuilds pumps can re-position the pulley to your specs, or replace the pulley with one that has a different offset.

We need to replace the alternator, 96 Grand Cherokee, Lorado,


1.Make sure the battery is disconnected while working there. @. Make sure that all electrical terminals are clean (on alt & battery) before putting back together. 3. use anti-seize compound or some good lithium grease on fasteners on re-assembly. It helps to keep them from freezing into aluminium and makes removal easier in the future. You may have to remove some other stuff to get the alt out, but it shouldn't bee too difficult. Make sure you either have a belt routing diagram, or make your own before you take it apart.
Good Luck
