SOURCE: Just wanted to know what

if the pulley wheel isn't driving anything it's likely the tensioner. if it has a reservoir it's likely power steering. a pulley driving something inside a "cover" would be water pump and the largest pulley would be your crankshaft pulley (at the bottom of the motor). have a look at the pulley for the water pump. if water is seeping out of the front of the pump it's time to replace it. the last time a belt shredded on my vehicle it was a seized tensioner (it was squealing first)

Timing belt keeps breaking


Apparently there is a tensioner that is not keeping the belt taught and it is not centered correctly on the pulleys. Or the pulley itself could be cracked warped or nicked.. Check out all the components carefully. A small nick or crack can cause the belt to chafe and run off the pulley and snap.

Broken altenator belt peugeot partner 2002


Once your belt snapped all of your cars power was running off of the battery (lights, radio, spark plugs, etc.), then your battery died. Therefore you have no power to turn your starter and apply a spark. Get someone to jump your car, once your car is started allow it to run for a little while to charger your battery back up. Batteries don't allways charge up properly either so you may end up needing a battery, depending on its age.

I have a 2001 lancer with a 2 litre motor.the timing belt snapped. how much damage would this do to the motor


It is possible the valves could hit the pistons and were bent. Another part that may have been damaged is the crank angle sensor located off the lower belt gear on the crank shaft. A dealer can tell you if your valves get damaged when the belt breaks on your model (on some engines the valves do not contact the pistons when the belt breaks).You can line up the timing marks and replace the belt yourself. Before reassembling the motor, run a compression test to see if the the head needs to be repaired. If your compression is still 110 or above on all cylinders (and with in ten pound pressure of each other) your engine should run when you put it back together. When you are replacing the belt you can inspect the crank angle sensor for possible damage.

Replace engine belts


snap a photo with your digital camer several angle all belt routes
then find the belt tensioner that lets you ease on the new serpentine belt on ...
OR do you have independent belts i e al;ternator water pump AC etc >

you can do it but observe the REMOVAL path of each previous belt

each devide usually has to be loosened and then tightened with various bolt adjustments

Vw lt46 1998 would it damage valves if timing belt


yes it will and most likely put a hole in the piston and snap the cam shaft if the engine is doing any more than idle speed, if it breaks at idle you may be lucky and just get away with a few bent valves but if im honest ive never seen anyone be lucky with one the normaly require a new engine. also worth changing the water pump at the same time as these do seize and will snap the new cam belt ! the only belt you can get away with leaving is the pump belt if this breaks no damage is caused the engine will just cut out ! however you will need to pretty much remove it after fitting a cambelt to set the timing so its pretty pointless no to change it

My serpintine belt on 2000 siloette keeps shredding


you most likely have a pulley out of alignment or bearing on one bad belt tensioners tend to lay at an angle when going bad this causes belt to try and ride on shoiulder of pulley and shreds belt with belt off check all pulleys and idlers for any play

The alternator belt keeps breaking on a 2000 mazda 626 it has been replaced 4 times and all of the mechanics say they cannot find any prolbems no bearing prolbems no pulley misalligment


What they mean is there is no obvious problems. What else runs off that belt? Check for misalignment there. What makes it break? Does it happen after a long trip ( 2 hrs. highway driving) or at timed intervals ( every month, 6wks)?
Carefully check all the pulley's for sharp edges or bump outs into the belt. If you find anything use a small file and smooth them out. They can cut or pinch your belt and weaken it so it breaks over time.
Check the pulley alignment with the engine running where you can see all the pulleys and belts at the same time. This might mean crawling under the car. Vary the engine speed while you watch and take it up to cruising speed. You are looking for something to change, i.e a pulley to start wobbling. It could be a mounting bracket that bends at higher revs that needs to be replaced or strengthened.
Hope this helps.

Ford transit 2.4 turbo diese keeps throwing serpentine belt ? any


Most common problem is the tension-er pulley is bad remove the belt and check to see if any pulleys have play in them see if they wiggle back and forth normally the idler pulley bearing wears out and causes the belt to ride at a slight angle marking it throw off the belt. hope this helps.

The belt comes out after every 300 km engine running.


if you replace the automatic belt tensioner the problem will probably be eliminated...as the tnsioner goes bad the it starts to angle allowing the belt to ride off the edge
