Question about 2001 Lincoln Navigator
Hw do i replace a belt tensioner in my 2001 lincoln navigator
You'll need a Johnson bar (a long bar with a 1/2" square socket stub on it) put it in a mating square hole at the tensioner to release the belt pressure to remove the belt. Then undo the bolts with a socket wrench (deep sockets may be required) Combination wrenches may also be required. I keep both metric and imperial of everything. Universal joints and extensions possibly too.

SOURCE: i was going to replace
your engine is a lincoln 32 valve which tell you you have 4 valves per cylinder and 4 cams 2 per head the sparkplugs are in the middle of the valve cover with a long cover covering 4 coil on spark plugs.
these engine have been known to stick spark plugs ( if you break one off you will be removing the head) not an easy job.
ONLY DO THIS ON A COLD ENGINE
blow out around the sparkplug to remove any dirt. spray some WD40 or whatever you use into each plug hole. and go have a cup of coffee because this is going to take awhile . slowly remove your plus do not force it they will break. install with a very little neverseze on the threads re install coils and cover plate.
i know of professionals that have had problems with these.
the 32 valve is one of the best engines ford ever made and no longer make it they replaced it with the 3 valve and my new one wont even come close to the performance and millage the 32 valve had (wish i had it back it was paid for)

one question at a time, the OD flashes to let u know that the transmission control module has detected a fault in the trans, this is useualy slipping, u may not even feel it. Have it tested for trouble codes.
As for the AC, is the system fully charged, does the compressor run?

basically you need a special tool to release the tension on the belt then remove the belt then it should be easy to remove the bearing and replace...better to use a mechanic with the proper tools

This is definitely not a job for the at home mechanic. the dash will probably have to come out and this is a very time consuming and laborious task. I would recommend you find a job that you can trust, or get several estimates on the work before you decide who to let do the work. I would expect something like this to run at least $700.00 to $1000.00

Open the hood. Disconnect the negative (black) battery cable.
Inspect the fan shroud for the accessory belt routing diagram. If the diagram is missing or illegible, use a pen and paper to draw your own diagram before removing the belt. The new belt must be routed around the pulleys exactly as the old one was.
Locate the spring loaded belt tensioner on the front of the engine. There is a small pulley attached to the bottom of the tensioner arm.
Slide the square end of the breaker bar into the square hole in front of the tensioner pulley. Rotate the breaker bar counterclockwise and the entire tensioner will move enough to relieve the tension from the belt. Pull the belt out from under the pulley and slowly let the breaker bar retract.
Remove the accessory belt from each pulley with your hands. Rotate one of the fan blades to the top side of the engine with your hand and pull the belt around it. Repeat this process until the belt is around all of the fan blades. Pull the belt out of the engine compartment.
Route the new belt carefully around each fan blade. Wrap the belt around the crankshaft pulley to begin the belt routing process. Refer back to the belt routing diagram instructions to properly route the new belt around the accessory pulleys.
Turn the tensioner counterclockwise again with the breaker bar. Position the new belt evenly under the tensioner pulley. Allow the tensioner pulley to tighten against the belt. Pull the breaker bar out of the tensioner.
Reconnect the negative battery cable.
Start the engine for five to ten seconds to seat the new belt. Turn the engine off. Visually check that the belt is properly seated around all pulleys.
