Sepertine belt wont tigthten on 1997 ford taurus 3.0 efi v6


Sometimes the idler will stick rather than respond to the spring and put tension on the belt. Try removing the belt, spraying libricant/penetrating fluid on the pivot points, and moving the idler back and forth a few times. CAUTION: the spring should want to move the tensioner so when it decides to free up it may do so in a hurry.

I need a belt routing diagram for a 2000 ford taurus 24v dohc engine. Know where I can find one on the web? (No sticker under the hood. And I was dumb enough not to pay attention when I took it off.)


OK, one doesn't need a belt routing diagram to reinstall a new belt.

Just route the belt so that one by one you put the ribbed part of the belt up against the ribbed pulleys, and the smooth part of hte belt up against the smooth pulleys. Do this until one arrives at the tensioner and release tension with a breaker bar to put the belt on the final tensioner pulley.

Check that the tensioner has enough spring load for the belt to maintain the right friction against all of the serpentine pulleys.

That's all there is to it.

97 Taurus Belt tensioner does not lossen the belt


There should be a square big enough to fit a 3/8" drive ratchet into on the tensioner (should be closest to the pulley), insert the ratchet into that square, then try turning the tensioner, this should release the pressure on the serpentine belt. Hope this helps.

Which is suppose to be the tension pully on a 1997 ford taurus? i need to replace the alternator and need to release the tension from the belt.


it's the round wheel that looks like it's not driving any accessory. use a 3/8 inch socket pry bar to relieve the tension so you can get the belt off..... make sure you know how to get the belt back on properly
