The bottom fan belt on my 87 xtracab recently broke in the middle of traffic and those same warning lights came on immediately, so you might want to have the belts checked, especially the one driving the alternator.

  1. Drain the cooling system.
CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  1. Remove the bolts securing the fan shroud to the radiator, if so equipped and position the shroud over the fan.
  2. Disconnect the lower radiator hose, heater hose and by-pass hose at the water pump. Remove the drive belt(s), fan, fan spacer and pulley. Remove the fan shroud, if so equipped.
  3. Loosen the alternator pivot bolt and the bolt attaching the alternator adjusting arm to the water pump. If applicable, remove the power steering pump bracket from the water pump and position it out of the way.
t may be easier to remove the pulley from the water pump shaft by using belt tension to hold the pulley prior to removal.
  1. Remove the bolts securing the water pump to the timing chain cover and remove the water pump.
To install:
  1. Coat a new gasket with sealer and install the water pump. Tighten the bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (24 Nm).

  3. Connect the lower radiator hose, heater hose and by-pass hose at the water pump.
  4. Install the fan shroud, if so equipped.
  5. Install the pulley, fan spacer, fan and drive belt(s).
  6. Fill the cooling system.

Replacing broken belts 1990 toyota pickup

I found that it is embarrassingly obvious once you get the parts and place them in position. Each belt only fits the appropriate pulley in width and length. When the belt breaks there's no visual reference (as one would have if he replaced the belts before they broke!) if the belt diagram is worn off the hood. Lesson learned; replace belts- a simple task- before they break!
