That is an accessory belt. no year car stated or make. wow.
it dont run off any cam shaft sorry, you sound very confused.

the cam belt must be replaced at 60,000 miles.
and is timed,
the accessory belts are not timed.
all are precision tensioned. to achieve max life span.

what car, what year, what size engine.
??????????????????????????????

SOURCE: power steering pump and belt replacement on 1997 olds aurora

More than likely it's the A/C compressor clutch is going bad. Cut the old serpentine belt off and install a shorter belt to bypass the A/C compressor for now.

SOURCE: Belt squealing when first started

The squeal when first started is most likely coming from the alternator belt. You need to have the tension of the belt checked to make sure it is properly adjusted. If you had a shop due it have , have them recheck it. Or stop by a local shop and they shouldnt charge you to check it. But its all in how you ask, if you go in and tell them your problem most likely they will try to get you for a fee to diagnose it.Just ask to have them check the belts and make sure there tight.If its ok, has anyone tried to fix your sqeul by spraying anything on it? if so your belt could be slipping from the lube they used. there is one more thing you can try, providing all the pullys/ tensioner pully if equiped are straight. If it is a serpantine belt(flat/multiple grooves) not A v-belt
when the engine is off,you take a tablespoon or so of corn starch, yes the stuff in the yellow box in the kitchen, and put it on the inside oif the belt. Its acts like a dry lube. I learned this trick at the GM dealership, from a factory bu;lliton. good luck

SOURCE: loud squealing from power steering pump - do I need new PS pump?

Hi Norman,

Sounds like the adjustment may not be correct on the power steering belt, with the tension not being enough, after you replaced the belt ?

Try giving it a little more tension, and go from there.

Hope I have been of help.

Good Luck !

John.

public libuary...Chilton or Haynes Manuel.  Coat the new camshaft with STP or grease when installing.  Are you doing both cams?  Usually they wear out from not enough oil reaching them.  You may consider replacing the lifters at the same time.

Replace alternater belt


- Remove the negative battery terminal and keep it away from the battery post.
- Loosen the the lower and upper alternator bolts.
- Push the alternator towards the engine block to release the belt.
- Install the new belt, place a lever between the alternator and engine block, move away the alternator to stretch the belt, leave about half an inch of free play on the belt and tight both the bolts.

When slowing down Batt light comes on and loss of power steering. Had alternator and batt checked and came out good. this is an intermitant problem.


is the belt stretched out! or the tensioner is weak, and not holding enough pressure on drive belt. if in doubt replace the belt. there should be marks on tensioner for the belt tension. if battery and alternater are ok. then it has to be the belt, tensioner, are the battery connection clamps, clean and tight! good-day !

When to change Timing Belt.


I am pretty sure you are asking about the serpentine belt.The timing belt is inside the engine and should not need replacing unless the engine is running REAL bad.If you are talking about the serpentine belt,a rubber belt which the engine drives and it powers the alternator,a/c,power steer,power brakes.There may be a mileage requirement for changing,but it is more about inspecting it and deciding.If there are many small cracks,or a few big cracks,or some fraying around the edges,then it needs replacing.Or if it's stretched a little too.A sign of that would be slow overheat,a/c may seem a little less cold than normal.First you need to make a diagram of how the belt is routed.To change it,you have to pull the tensioner away from the belt side to loosen the belt,then slip the belt out of the grooves and off.The tensioner is round and looks like it isn't connect to anything but a wall or have a purpose but it is spring loaded.When you put the belt back on,start from the engine,pulling up slightly so it doesn't fall off,and work both sides until you're back at the tensioner.Push the tensioner away from the belt wrapped side and slip it over the edge.
Good luck! Greg

Check the votage of the battery with a volt tester in the DC mode and the probes reversed ( black on red red on black) if a reading of voltages shows of any amount, the diode is bad in the altenator

MY 2003 CHEVY S10 DISCHARGES WHEN IT GOES OVER 2000 RPM. ALTERNATER IS OK, I REPLACED BATTERY AND DRIVE BELT. NO CHANGE.


Check your belt tensioner to be sure the new belt is being held firmly on the pully. Make sure the pully on the alt is the correct diameter as the wrong size will effect the rate of charge.....Also make sure all your ground connections are clean and tight as this too can effect your electrical system.

Just got alternater replaced a couple of months ago and its starting to squeel again like last time and the battery light keeps flickering on and off


The alternator drive belt is loose or worn out. If the alternator is driven off a serpentine belt then replace the belt. Inspect the serpentine belt tensioner and replace if necessary. On an 18 year old car it is more than likely defective. If it is driven off a standard drive belt then adjust the alternator to tighten the belt. Inspect the belt for fraying and or cracks and replace if you see any.

03 kia won't start


Hi do you have any power at all ie when you turn the ignition on do you get all the dashboard lights light up as normal and can you use the headlights etc if you can are the lights bright or not.

If you have no power at all then the chances are the battery needs replacing or it could even be that the alternater needs replacing and then your battery has run flat.

The best thing to do is either charge your battery up and then try your car again if it starts up as normal but their is a picture of the battery lit up on the dashboard then this indicates that the alternater needs replacing.

If after charging the battery you still have no power at all then this would indicate that the leads coming from the battery are loose or not connected at all.

The main problem with the leads from the battery is with the earth leads one should go to the body work you will need to undo this and check that this is not corroded where it touches the body work you can use sand paper to remove any corrosion
The other earth lead connects to the engine check this is still connected and free from corrosion.

Check also the possitive lead from the battery that goes to the starter motor check this is still connected also as this is the main lead from the battery.

You could try using jump leads from someone elses car onto your battery this way if you still had no power it would then 100% be the leads at fault.

If after connecting the jump leads you thne have power and can then start the car this would then indicate that either the battery is at fault or the alternater the way to test this would be when the car is running at night time park up agains a wall about 10 feet away with the head lights on full beam facing the wall no when you rev the engine up the lights should shine slightly brighter then when you stop revving it should go slightly dim if it does this then the alternater is ok and the battery needs replacing.

If the lights dont go any brighter then this suggests that the alternater needs replacing.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Alternater trouble Mitsubishi Montero Sport 2003


I have had the exact problem. I've changed altenator 3 times also and it has the same leak, but I've changed altenator an batterys over 2 year span. It just happend to me today after not driving it for 5 months. It's been in storage while I was away. Drive it fine for 2 days but today the radio kept shutting off and finally the car died right in the middle of the road. Bought a new battery because I had a warranty on last battery, but bought it just to get it home and in the driveway. Did you ever find out what was wrong with it?
