SOURCE: how to replace the power steering belt on a 4g13


ADJUSTMENT

Excessive belt tension will cause damage to the alternator and water pump pulley bearings, while, on the other hand, loose belt tension will produce slip and premature wear on the belt. Therefore, be sure to adjust the belt tension to the proper level.
To adjust the tension on a drive belt, loosen the adjusting bolt or fixing bolt locknut on the alternator, alternator bracket or tension pulley. Then move the alternator or turn the adjusting bolt to adjust belt tension. Once the desired value is reached, secure the bolt or locknut and recheck tension.

How do i intall a/c belt alternator Belt and power steering belt for 350 engine


The power steering pump has has mounting bolts that also serve to hold tension on the belt. Same for the alternator. Loosen the bolts but don't take completely out, push the pump or alternator towards the engine to release tension. Replace the belts. Use a long handled pry bar to push against the alternator or power steering pump to apply tension to the new belt while simultaneously tighten the bolts.

Power steering locked up one day going down road, car died, and every since u can turn it over but it wont crank?? help!!!!


Remove the power steering belt from the power steering pump. Try to restart. Sounds like the power steering pump froze up. If the belt drives more than the power steering pump (like the alternator), you will have drained the battery and the engine will not start. replace pump, charge battery, replace belt....hopefully drive. Good luck.

First my power steering went out, then my battery started going low and my engine overheated, all in a matter of minutes. What belt is it that I need to replace?


From the symptoms it sounds like one belt supplies the drive for all 3 units (power steering pump, alternator and water pump)
If you replace this belt (could be called power steering belt or alternator belt) then all should be fixed as long as engine did not overheat too much!

The power steering is out and I can hear a pulley going bonkers. There is a squealing sound like a belt isn't catching, and also an oscillating sound like a pulley is loose and moving back and forth or...


i am having a similar problem. my power steering pully is loose. im pretty sure i have to replace the pump and the pully however my power steering still works but the belt squeals.check all the pullys they drive the belt or belts. its usually always either the tensioner thats the pully that allows you to remove the drive belt or the power steering pully which sucks the most because you must remove the entire power steering pump to replace the pully and since you have to go through all that trouble you might as well replace the entire power steering pump as well. i am not a mechanic so try and find more information.
