Nope. As long as it's a serpentine belt and not the timing belt. the serpentine belt is exposed and the timing belt is covered.

Do serpentine belts stretch?


serpentine belts do not stretch as you describe because the tensioner keeps them tight so they just break. It is probably hard and cracking and need s a new one so try that first . The ac has nothing to do with the belt as it will be a low gas problem from leaks and the heat is a coolant problem or a control problem from inside the car.. The grinding sound may be a pulley bearing or some other bearing failing. Why don't you take it to a repair shop to find all the faults so that you can work out how much it is going to cost.

Need to change the alternator on a 2001 sunfire,2.4 engine,how do i do that?


Things You'll Need:
  • Battery terminal wrench
  • Serpentine belt removal tool
  • 3/8-inch ratchet
  • 3/8-inch metric socket set
  1. Turn off the engine and place the transmission in park (automatic) or first gear (manual). Engage the parking brake and open the hood. Disconnect the negative cable from the battery terminal using the battery terminal wrench.

  2. Remove the serpentine belt by inserting the end of the serpentine belt tool into the square hole on the belt tensioner and rotating the removal tool clockwise. Unplug the alternator's electrical connector. Remove the bolt holding the positive voltage cable to the alternator using a 3/8-inch ratchet and a metric socket. Remove the positive voltage cable from the alternator.

  3. Remove the alternator bracket bolts using a metric socket connected to a 3/8-inch ratchet. Remove the alternator from the car. Place the new alternator in the mounting brackets and reinstall the mounting bolts using a 3/8-inch ratchet connected to a metric socket.

  4. Reinstall the positive voltage cable on the alternator and tighten the retaining nut using a 3/8-inch ratchet and a metric socket. Plug in the alternator's electrical connector. Compress the serpentine belt tensioner using the serpentine belt tool. Reinstall the serpentine belt according to the belt-routing diagram located under the hood.

  5. Reconnect the negative cable to the battery using the battery terminal wrench. Start the engine and verify that the alternator works.

Intermittent - sounds like a cat caught under the


From what you have described I believe what you have is intermittent belt squeal in the serpentine belt. These tend to squeal in cold and damp weather and usually the noise will typically dissipate once the belt warms up from friction and radiated engine heat. (This is not always the case however).

You should check the belt for age and wear and, if in doubt, replace it as these are quite inexpensive items which need periodic replacement in any event. Also make sure the current belt - and any replacement - is properly aligned on the pulleys.

If you have no record of when the belt was last changed I would replace it even if it looks ok. These are easy and quick for an experienced person to replace.

Often when you replace the serpentine belt the squeal will disappear but return again as the new belt "wears in".

There are some temporary fixes for noisy belts which sometimes work (such as removing it and lightly spraying the belt with "Belt Grip"). There are also 1 or 2 others but I would not recommend them.

1997 nissan sentra serpentine belt


The serpentine belt has nothing to do with the brakes. It does have something to do with the alternator which charges the battery. the burning smell is probably the result of wasted grooves on the underside of the belt. it is the belt you see just inside the car engine compartment that turns the AC unit compressor pully , the alternator, etc.it is connected to the crankshaft pully.. If you have a front wheel drive it is located on the side of the engine compartment.
