SOURCE: Pulleys and driveBelt move freely when engine off, but they dont

sounds to me like the belt is just sliding on the crank pulley. Could be a separated harmonic balancer. Check the big pulley on the bottom.

Buy a whole new clutch for about $200. You need a special puller to remove the old one if you intend to refurbish it. It's not worth the effort. Just remove the clips and knock the old one off with a hammer. Chuck it away and replace with a brand new clutch assembly.

2007 Dodge Caravan 2.4L DOHC. AC Compressor knocks when air is turned on, but not when off. Any ideas?


You probably need a new compressor. Even though the belt turns the pulley anytime the engine is running, the clutch only engages the compressor when the AC is turned on.

My 2000 alero makes a screeching sound when i turn on ac does anyone know what it could be?


Most probable cause is the belt slipping on the compressor pulley, either from being too loose or A/C compressor may be starting to lock up. The belt running your A/C compressor nromaly free spins on the pulley/bearing assy. when you engage the A/C the clutch assembly lock in against the pulley which engages the compressor. It is possible the the needed tension from your belt it too loose to spin the compressor when locked engaged or the compressor may be locking up. I would start by checking the belt tension if it has a manual adjustment and is not a serpentine belt with an auto tensioner.

The serpentine belt on my 1984 Buick Lesabre keeps breaking when turn on air conditioner or heater why?


Most likely you have a seized AC compressor. When you ask for AC or heat the AC clutch engages with the pulley wheel that normally spins freely when the AC is off. As the pulley wheel is no longer able to turn because of the seized compressor the belt will either slip or snap.

A belt broke on my car and my ac dont work....what do i need or how much would it cost to repair?


im not sure of the year,make or model of this car but if everything else is working like the powersteering and alternator and car doesnt overheat then i would say that the belt may only run the ac compressor. the first thing to check is all pulleys, the belt may have broke due to being worn and old, the belt may have also broke due to a bad pulley or a frozen one. check all pulleys in which the belt runs on. spin each pulley by hand and make sure it spins freely, if all spins free then install a new belt , make sure to check the ac compressor also. good day.

What would cause my ac belt to break on my 97 dodge caravan the pullies move without the belt being attached ,but we did have a big squealing noise when we used the ac..


The squealing is from the crankshaft p[ulley turn the belt on another pulley that is not turning as faster, Let it sqeal long enough and it will burn the belt in half. The pulley on the A/C maybe turning freely, but when you engage the A/C, the compressor itself is not, causing it to squeal. My guess is that the compressor is locking up or you have added to much freon. Having to much freon causes to much pressure buid up and will stop the compressor.

Ford f25 1991 the heater belt starts smoking when turn on. We do not use the air conditioner


I would take off the belt and check each pulley for free movement when the car is off. For example, if there is an air pump, it should turn freely. Or, if the alternator pulley is disconnected from the belt, it should turn relatively freely.

Serpentine belt slips off idler pulley


The A/C pully is supposed to spin freely until the AC is activated to run.. The cranshaft pully does not. Replace the tensioner pully. The belt has to fit in between the grooves on the pullys.
