Question about Honda Civic

Car stalled because of loose fan belt, still wont run after tightened

I was driving and the check engin light went on.. i checked the oil and coolent, but found everything to be ok..After about a day my car just shut off while i was comming to a stop to turn. The oil light,battery light, and check engin light went on. I checked under the hood and the fan belt was really loose. a tow truck driver tightened it but i think he did it to much..cuz it will start now but it only runs for a block or so and then stalls, when i try to restart it i had to have the gas peddle floored. Why will my car only run for a block and it sounds like it is taking everything it has to move that one block

Lights went out and radiator fan stays running after car is shut off


It sounds like an alternator, yet you say the fan still worked after you disconnected the battery? And the car was still running? Or the car died out. Sorry, need some more details on this one.

Try checking you belt tension. That happened to me once while I was driving. Turned out to be a broken fan belt.

It is likely that your alternator is failing. Recommend you have it tested. OR, if you have a voltmeter, test it yourself. Voltage should be at least 14 volts at the battery with the car running. Let me know if you have questions.

the cam belt should have a little slack in it,, about 1/2 inch over its longest run, its not like a fan belt witch should be tight, but check the idler bearing are not worn out,,and i do hope this is a new belt for this car,,,if your using the old belt,,,dont! fit a new one on it or it could brake on you, and that would be another engine rebuild on your hands,,,

97 olds 88 check engine light on car stalls periodically


when you say stalls, do you mean shut off of just get low on power?

my check engine light comes on and then oil press light come on and the car shuts off but the lights and music stayed on.
if its that the car needs oil and shuts down to protect itself but it will turn on minutes later.

if stalls periodically, shows check engine light and the car looses a bit of power, in the engine, :

1. your coolant may be having problems getting to the engine in the way it was met to get to the engine

2. the belt might be a bit off and that could be why you get the slipping feeling

3. your exhaust may be a bit clogged. or your engine may need cleaning

i had both problems my car shut off and my engine was slipping. my EXPENSIVE but great machanic found out it was my oil level and my coolant was rusty and not getting to the engine. now she drives like the original 97 olds 88

sounds like your altonator belt is loose and needs tightened. if you put a new belt on with the altonator it just needs re adjusted..
