How do you install a serpentine belt on a 98 chevy malibu

Its not that hard . Look at the idler pulley for the belt there is a squire slot troward the front in the middle of the pulley . A 3/8 ths . extentoin for a standerd socket drive fits neatle into it put it on the wrench and push the tenisioner to the center of the engine . This will release the tention on the belt and it will come off. You may have to remove the fan shroud from the radiator and you may want to snap a picture of the belt routing on your cell . And install by pushing the tenisioner again with the new belt . A nd it would be a good idia to replace the tenisioner as well it is a ware part and is likely why your belt went in the first place

If u replace timing chain in a 2002 ford explore will the engine go bad?~~~~~~~HELP<HELP<) how much iz it to replaace?

No, it wont cause the engine to go bad. If the timing chain or belt breaks, that can do major damage to the head. It usually cost around six hundred dollars to have it replaced. If you do it yourself just the cost of parts. Here are the INSTRUCTIONS for replacing it to give you an idea of what's involved.

How do you install/ change a serpentine belt on a 2002 chevrolet suburan 1500?

The first thing you need to do is release the tention from the belt tenisioner. But before you do that snap a picture of the belt routing . You can release the tenistion from the tenisitioner by inserting a 3/8 ths scoket extention into the square slot in the front of the tensioner it fits nicely put the extention on a 3/8 ths drive scoket wrench and push againest the spring tention on the tensioner so toward the center of the engine . The belt will fall off . If you are replaceing the belt you should also replace the tensioner its a ware part and likely caused the belt failure in the first place . Its a one bolt hold down with a locater pin on the back of the tensioner Then install in reverse order

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

So you have it off now . Did you replace the belt tenisioner at this point this would be a vary good idea its a ware part and sooner or later will need it . Look at the front of the tenisinor under the pulley there is a square slot you can put a 3/8s extention for a 3/8s scoket wrench in this slot and hook it to the 3/8s drive wrench and push the tenisioner to the middle of the engine its spring loaded then you will be able to put the belt over the pulley on the tenisiner and then relese the force from the scoket wrench . You just to do the belting routing correctly but there should be a decail that will show you this somewhere under the hood if not you can ask the dealer it olny fits one way and needs to be a tight fix

It could be a problem with the tenisioner its a good idia to replace them from time to time even if they still work they start to stick the spring just gets weak or the pulley starts to bind What you could do to quit it down is take a bar of soapwhen its idleing and touch it to the sides of the belt you;ll find it works vary good to quit it down
