This is Called the Serpentine Belt. I will send you a Diagram of how to Install it and Some Directions. http://www.mvreader.com/multiview/dayco/catalogSearch.php?autoCatalogSearch=1&make=CHEVROLET&model=EQUINOX&year=2005&year_from=&year_to=&engine=All&l=n
Click the Link above and Click on Belt routing Diagram on the Left.
You will need to Locate the Belt Tensioner. It has a Large Pulley on a Bracket that Has a Bolt in the Middle and a Smaller Pulley that Goes Under the Belt and Holds Tension on it. You will need to get a Wratchet, Socket, and Cheater Bar. Turn the Bolt On the Top Large Pulley with the Wratchet and Cheater Bar. This will Lower the Smaller Pulley So that you will be Able to Install the Belt. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

It is call serpentine belt and if you look under hood there is a diagram showing you how the belt goes back on look for a spring loaded close to the belt this is call the tensioner it sometime use 3/8 socket or 1/2 in make sure you have the right one and socket to fit and if there is an autozone near you they can print you one but what i do is draw me a diagram out before i take the old one off.

Fix an overheating buick rendezvous 2002. Truly overheated once, then had the radiator flushed and replaced, along with thermostat (twice) and water pump. Now, the computer indicates it is overheating


You have a needle in a haystack because so many things can cause your problem. I am leaning toward the main computer - which you can replace yourself for around $300. There are companies on the internet that will send you your pre-programmed computer, you have to supply your VIN number. Like many internet companies I always recommend that you are careful in your selection. Be careful to find a reliable company and call them on the phone to make sure they are a real company. If they do not have a phone number - find a different company.

Here are a couple things to try first:
1) Coolant sensor - but this usually makes your car run really poor because it can change the gas/air ratio. If your car is running great other than the overheating sensor - then this probably is not the problem. But worth checking.

2) Serpentine Belt - sometimes when you change the serpentine belt you can put it back on the pulleys out of order. Your car can run great but can cause overheating especially if you have the water pump turning backwards. Since you had the water pump changed you might just take a look at the belt to make sure it is wound correctly. There should be a sticker under the hood.

All said -- I am still leaning toward the main computer.

[check fans possible bad sensor or fan motor ]<<< most likely problem/or radiator and reservoir may need to be flushed the 05 was known for having radiator hose problems the hoses in some would deteriorate causing a smell and overheating problems --the other 05 problem was head gasket which can cause the overheat problem but u would have other symptoms rough idle ,steam from tailpipe,oil level high and looking like chocolate milk the 05 problems usually caused the problems early in ownership within 10,000 miles and recheck stat and pump new doesnt mean free from defects

2005 chevy equinox overheating.. we changed the thermostat, still overheating. and now there is gray/white smoke from exhaust???


sounds like you have a blown head gasket.
be sure engine is cold, open water tank be sure it is full than start car with tank open see if you see bubbles in the tank. If so possible head gasket blown.

Overheating 2005 Equinox, after belt replacement.


This could be Caused by a Faulty Tensioner not keeping the Belt Tight enough or even the Thermostat. Check the Belt and see how tight it is First.
