Question about 1993 Oldsmobile Achieva

Changing the alternator belt - easy?

Just want to make sure how easy it is to pull off and put on a alternator belt for 93 olds achieva. Looks like I only have to loosen the idler pully or belt tensioner. (not sure what its called, but the round disk type thing that takes slack out of the belt).

    thanks. I got it pretty easy before I even saw ya'll post on here. Just a few swear words at it, trying to maneuver a way to hold the wrench/tension while I threaded the belt in place. Real quick, easy job. Appreciate the responses though!

Yes, you'll have to use a wrench or socket on the bolt in the center of that tensioner pulley, you'll back off the tension to remove the belt and have to back off the tension again when you install the new belt.

    ourhowse is right and along with that, follow the schematic for the belt routing, the schematic should be located on the frame infront of the radiator or nearby

Alternator


First you need to remove the serpintine belt or alternator belt. If it is a serpintine locate the tension pully(the one that doesn't look like it does anything) place a wrench over the pully bolt and pull while removing the belt. Most generaly all alternators have two bolts holding them in. Remove both bolts. and remove alternator on some vehicles you need to remove the top engine mounts to remove the acctual alternator. make sure you if you do this you put a jack under the bngine block. NEVER ON THE OIL PAN. After that simply remove the old alternator and replace it with the new one reinstall the serpintine belt as instructed on either the underside of your hood or where the hood latch is.

I have a 97 chevy dually and i need a diagram of how to change the serpetine belt..its a 7.4 litre


easy job all you need is a size 14 wrench and find the tensioner pully once youve done that take your wrench and put it on the nut on the front of the pully and pull upward once you see the belt to get loose enough to pull from the alternator pull it off work it in front of the fan until its out. make sure to draw a picture of the way it was routed so you can put it back on without a problem you will need to pull the tensioner while you are reinstalling the new belt so you will have enough slack in the belt to push it over the last pully. also take the old belt with you to the parts store so you can compare the size and part number from the old one. theres nothing more frustrating then to get the wrong part and figure it out when your trying to put it on

Im putting timing chain on my 93 chevy s10 pickup 4.3 and there are gears behind the timing chain what do I do


first thing i would do is make sure your timing marks are lined up before removing the chain and gears,,,turn it over by hand till they line up then remove the bolts in the cam and pull off the cam gear and chain,,you will probably need to use a prybar to get the bottom gear off,,,line up your timing marks and istall the new gears and chain

How to replace the serpentine belt on the 1992 oldsmobile achieva


Pry the tensioner with appropiate tool, then pull the belt off the alternator pulley before releasing the tensioner. Note the routing of belt before doing this job. Make sure the new belt is same length before putting back on, reverse the procedure.

How to change/remove an alternator belt on a 1998 chevy cavalier z24


There is a tensioner in the front of the motor. It looks like a pulley on an arm. The front of the tensioner has a square spot. You can get on that with a 3/4" or I think a 19mm wrench. Rotate the whole thing counter clockwise. This will release the tension on the belt. With your other hand, or an assistant slide the belt off of the alternator pulley. You can let the tensioner down now. Go easy because it will go further than it was before. You dont want to loose any skin off of your knuckles!

There should be a belt routing diagram under there somewhere. Run it around everything else then pull it up to the alternator pulley again. Again pull the tensioner up. Slip the belt onto the pulley and let go. Get a light and make sure that the belt is completely on all of the pulleys. It is possible to have it riding on the edge.

Start it up and check it out. Youre done!
