2005 santa fe serpentine broke then bad vibrating and it died replaced serpentine and tensionor, now motor locked. Is the motor shot or could something else be wrong?


Put a socket and wrench on the crankshaft pulley bolt, and see if you can turn the crankshaft-clockwise. If the crank won't turn, something internal is bad. If you can turn the crankshaft normally, check that another pulley has seized.
Or try it this way: take the serpentine belt back off and see if the starter can spin the crankshaft. If it does, look for a seized pulley. If a good battery cannot make the starter turn the crankshaft, likely the motor is shot.

How do i remove the drive belt on a 2006 Toyota Solara?


Serpentine belt replacement is not complicated and requires only one tool. Find the tension pulley located at the bottom of the motor. This pulley is attached to a very strong spring and holds the belt tight against the pulleys through its serpentine route around the engine. Use a socket wrench with a matching socket the same size as the hex head bolt in the center of the tension pulley. Attach the socket and set the direction to tighten the same direction the spring action allows the pulley to move. Turn the wrench handle, the pulley moves and the tension on the belt slackens. Take the belt off the pulley and let it hang. 
To install the new belt Once the belt is around the pulleys allow it to hang freely at the bottom of the engine. Again, use the socket wrench to turn the tension pulley far enough so the belt can be wrapped around the pulley. Once the belt is around the tension pulley, release the socket wrench and allow the tension pulley to take up the slack. 
Good Luck!!

The serpentine belt pulley on my 2007 Chevy Impala 3.5 liter V6 L that is located at the lower portion of the motor closest to the front of the vehicle has seized, which pulley is that so I can shop for a...


if the pulley is stationary just bolted to the block, that is called the idler pulley, if the pulley is on a bracket that is spring loaded that is called the belt tensioner pulley, remove it and take it into the store to ensure they give you the right one. good luck.

98 malibu won't start


Recommend to locate the crank pulley on the front of the motor.
This pulley should be about 5 to 10 inches in diameter, and it usually is the pulley closest to the ground. It is on the front of the engine, but your engine being crosswise, that may mean the passenger side of the car.
This pulley drives the serpentine belt.
In the middle of this pulley is a large bolt that holds the pulley on. Find a socket to fit that bolt, and a long extension handle to fit that socket. You will need to be under the car to do this.There may be plastic shields in your way. Try to turn this bolt Clockwise, as you are wanting to turn the crankshaft, not loosen the bolt. If the crankshaft turns, the engine should not be "froze up". If that pulley won't turn, the motor may be "gone".

Serpentine belt diagram for a 2003 Chevy unpalatable 4.3


Pop the hood of the car and locate the serpentine belt routing diagram. The diagram on the 2003 Chevrolet Impala is on top of the fan shroud. The diagram will be a picture of all of the accessory pulleys and how the serpentine belt is routed among the pulleys. This diagram will give you the exact direction for routing the new belt onto the pulleys. If you cannot find a serpentine belt routing diagram, take a notepad and pen and draw out the exact routing diagram of the old belt across the pulleys.

  • 2 Locate the serpentine belt tensioner. It is located below the alternator on the left front side of the engine. The tensioner on the 3.4 liter, 3.5 liter and the 3.9 liter engines will require a 3/8 ratchet to release the belt tensioner. The 3.8 liter engine will require a ratchet and a 15 mm socket for the belt tensioner. Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise to loosen and remove the belt from the belt tensioner pulley.
  • 3 Slide the old belt from the belt tensioner pulley. Remove the belt from the remaining pulleys and pull the belt from the engine compartment.
  • 4 Route the new belt across the crankshaft pulley first. The crankshaft pulley is the big pulley on the bottom of the engine in the center. Then route the serpentine belt across the remaining pulleys as directed by the serpentine belt routing diagram. Leave the belt tensioner pulley for last.
  • 5 Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise again to relieve the tension and slide the new belt across the top of the belt tensioner pulley. Release the belt tensioner and the belt will tighten up as the tensioner applies pressure to the belt. Make sure the new belt is properly seated in all the pulleys.
  • 6 Crank the engine and inspect the belt again to make sure that it stays seated in the pulleys.

    Replacing fan belt?what tools are required?


    Instructions

    Things You'll Need
    3/8-inch drive breaker bar
    Metric sockets
    Serpentine belt

    1 Open the hood and inspect the flat surface on top of the plastic fan shroud for the belt routing diagram. Follow the diagram instructions to route the new belt.

    2 Locate the serpentine belt self-adjusting tensioner on the front of the engine block. The tensioner has a pulley on the bottom of the tensioner arm, which the belt travels under. The tensioner can only be rotated from the bolt that secures the pulley to the tensioner arm.

    3 Rotate the tensioner in a clockwise motion with a metric socket and the breaker bar to loosen the tension from the belt. Then, pull the belt off the top of the tensioner pulley. Release the tensioner pulley and pull the breaker bar off the pulley bolt.

    4 Pull the belt out of the accessory pulleys. Then, slide the belt around each fan blade and out of the engine bay. Rotate each fan blade to the top side of the engine to get the belt around each fan blade.

    5 Match both the new belt and the old belt together to make sure that the new belt is the correct size. Then, route the new belt around each fan blade and around the crankshaft pulley. The crankshaft pulley is the big pulley at the very bottom of the engine.

    6 Follow the routing directions from the belt routing diagram to install the new belt around the other accessory pulleys. Once the belt has been routed around all of the pulleys, look over the belt and make sure that it is secure inside all of the pulleys.

    7 Crank the 1998 Dodge Caravan and let the motor run for about 15 seconds. This will finish seating the ridges of the new belt into the grooves of each accessory pulley.

    8 Shut the motor off and close the hood.

    I want to bypass the air condition unit with serpentine belt need to know how that would effect the water pump.


    The serpentine belt is meant to run everything at once. it is a tricky situation trying to bypass a pulley. If the pulley is located at the bottom of the serpentine relay, you should be able to buy a shorter belt and bypass the A/C, but make sure to incorporate the water pump or you're asking for a seized engine. It may or may not be possible. i did it on an 89 Escort, but it was simple and the A/C was located at the bottom of the serpentine cycle. The original belt was 23" and the new belt was 19". Just make sure to wrap the belt around the water pump as it probably runs your timing belt as well.

    How do i release the tension belt ... cant seem to find bolt being referred to in other docs


    Here's the procedure on how to release and replace the tension belt of your car.

    Step 1
  • Open the hood on the Volvo S-60 and find the serpentine-belt routing diagram. The diagram should be attached to the top of the fan shroud that covers the radiator. If not, draw out the exact routing method of the serpentine belt around each pulley with a pen and a piece of paper.
  • Step 2 Locate the serpentine-belt tensioner that is in the very center of the engine. The tensioner will have a square bolt head in the center of the tensioner pulley.
  • Step 3 Slide the open end of the 5/8-wrench onto the square bolt head in the center of the belt-tensioner pulley. Turn the tensioner pulley counterclockwise and slide the serpentine belt off of the tensioner pulley.
  • Step 4 Remove the serpentine belt from the other pulleys and pull the belt out of the engine compartment.
  • Step 5 Slide the new serpentine belt into the engine compartment and around the crankshaft pulley.
  • Step 6 Route the new serpentine belt around each pulley. Turn the belt-tensioner pulley counterclockwise again and slide the serpentine belt around the tensioner pulley. Release the tensioner and it will tighten the belt around the pulleys. Look over the belt to ensure that it is inside of each pulley.
  • Step 7 Crank the S-60 and look over the serpentine belt with the motor running. Let the engine run for about one minute and shut the engine off. Close the hood.

    99 Beetle Serpentine belt diagram


    The serpentine belt on my 2001 Beetle loops around the outside of the large pulley closest to the firewall, at the bottom, then goes around the outside of the forward lower pulley, then crosses to the inside of the one right above the forward lower pulley, then loops over the outside of the alternator pulley at the top front side, then goes inside under the tensioner pulley, and back down to the outside of the big rear pulley.

    I hope that description makes sense. A picture would work a lot better, but I don't have an easy way to post it. Also, I know you asked about the '99 Beetle, but I assume its routing is the same as the 2001 (which is the one I have).
