2001 sable 24 valve duratec water pump belt routing


The water pump on the Duratec 30 on the 2001 Mercury Sable is driven by a separate belt on the driver's side of the engine. You can see the belt easily form the top of the engine compartment. The pump is driven by a belt from one of the overhead camshafts in the front bank of cylinders. The diagraom that is provided does not go to the water pump on the 24-valve 3.0 liter in the 2001 Sable.

Belt diagram for 2001 mercury sable


On the standard (non twincam) engine the belt runs on the outside of all accessories and goes inside on the idler and tensioner. The idler is the upper pulley, so loop the belt near the water pump on that one. The tensioner you know because you are rotating it with a large wrench to get the belt on. It loops towards the front of the car and the power steering pump pulley.

How many belts does it have


It should just have 1 belt which routes through all the driven components.It is called a serpentine belt.If it is broken and you do not know how to route it in your engine,call a dealer or a shop or a parts store.Someone will be willing to offer free instructions to attract business.Good luck!

Need diagram for 2001 mercury sable serpentene belt


Try this one. Without engine info, most of the regular sites were not so useful, but this one gives many different belts. You'll need to compare your belt number to the ones on the page so you can get the right one, but these are all for 2001 Sables.

I have a 1999 Mercury Sable. The only problem I have had with the car is the serpentine belt. It started 3 months ago . . . the engine was overheating and the belt was shredding. I bought a belt tensioner...


take the belt off and carefully check to see if any of the pulleys are out of line and check to make sure they spin smooth and true check for bearing wear and noise in any of the pulleys cause it sounds like simply there is a pulley out of line

is the a/c working ok??? shredding the belt may be cause by the a/c compressor problems. the "chunk" maybe not, but shredding tells me something does not spin when it should. I dont know why the mehanic put a new pump on that had a problem with the pulley, it should be smooth. anyhting that the belt runs should be smooth and east to turn, make sure that all of the grooves are clean, no remnants of the old belt.
