None of my pulleys will turn on my jeep Cherokee larado

with the belt on or off? If when off, anything not turning means the bearings are probably frozen. The units would need replacement. Its a coincidence that all are not turning at the same time. CHECK CRANK & CAMS WITHOUT THE BELT. IF THOSE ARE N/G YOUR STARTING TO LOOK AT A MOTOR REPLACE OR SERIOUS REPAIR.

Is the water pump pulley suppose to move freely or not w/o the serpentine belt? 2006 Impala 3.9 194,000 miles.

The a/c pulley is clutched, the ribbed portion( that the belt rides in), should turn freely w/o the belt! With the belt on, the a/c on, and the car running, the a/c clutch should kick in and spin occasionally! The waterpump should have little resistance w/o the belt! Id suggest replacing it if you cant turn it by hand, without the belt!

Why cant I get the new belt on to the tensioner pulley?

First make sure you have the right belt. They make one for vehicles with and without air conditioning. The one without air conditioning is usually shorter. Depending on which engine you have (was not stated in the question) - some vehicles just have a tensioner that you loose or rotate and some you have to loosen the power steering pump to get the extra space you need to put the belt on.

I cant get the crankshaft bolt off

They are sometimes installed with threadlock compound which makes it very difficult. How big and powerful was the impact wrench? Is there scope yet to hire a really huge one?

The bump method is a last resort because it puts the flywheel ring gear teeth at some risk. Break one of those and you are up for expense.

Apparently the serpentine belt was thrown off my 1998 Mercury Mystique. It appears in good condition. Should it be replaced or can it be reused? Also, do you have a belt diagram? Thank-you.

You can reuse it. But you need to find out why it was thrown off. Check all the pullies by grabbing them and checking for side to side movement, With the exception of the power steering pump pulley (which has some in and out play) they all should have no play. Just turn in nice smooth circles. Sorry I don't have the diagram, but there should be one under the hood. Sometimes on the bottom of the hood.

Cant figure out how to loosen AC belt, goes around


I would first determine where the bolts are for the ac compressor and loosen them until the belt slides off.

Or, I know this may sound goofy, but you can get a breaker bar and socket or a large wrench and turn the crankshaft while putting a large flat screwdriver in between the v-belt and one side of the v of the pulley, and TURRRRRN it slowly until the screwdriver wedged in there actually takes the belt off (with turning).

That's a trick to use, but inspect the belt for damage afterward, or replace the belt if it is damaged in the process, which it usually is not.

Hope that helps.

Winding noise that appears to be coming from the serpentine drivebelt pulleys. most promenent from the power steering pulley.

With the Engine Running and belt rotating: Spray Belt Dressing (available at most auto parts / general merchandise stores) onto the Belt. Does the "whinning" noise go away? If so replace the Belt.
Turn off the Engine.
If the Belt Dressing does not stop the whinning: Check the Power Fluid Level. Add Power Steering Fluid - if necessary.
With the Engine Off: Remove the Serpentine Belt.
Click on the following free Link for the Belt Diagram and Directions on how to remove the Belt. Go to the left (counterclockwise) to relieve pressure off the Belt and remove the Belt.

After removing the Belt:
Go to the side and look at the alignment of all the Pulleys. All Pulleys should be aligned with each other. No Pulley should be canted/leaning.
Using your hand: turn the Power Steering Pump Pulley. The turning should be smooth and without effort. If there is any resistance or squeeking at anytime while turning, then the bearings in the Pump are going-out, and the Pump should be replaced.
While the Belt is off: check the remainder of the "free" Pulleys. Do Not turn the Crankshaft Pulley (you shouldn't be able to - by hand).

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at!

Cant find drive belt tensioner bolt to loosen serpintine belt

The serpentine belt tensioner / pulley is on the front of the engine, and part of the belt 'routing'.

Its job is to put tension on the belt as it drives the other devices like the power steering pump, water pump, air conditioning compressor.

It is an aluminum casting that mounts with a single bolt to the engine. The pulley is attached to the arm.

There are a few ways to move / pry the arm inwards, thus releasing the tension on the belt for removing/installing: grab on the pulley bolt (15mm?) with a wrench, or some later models have an opening for a 3/8th socket wrench to attach to directly without a socket.

AC Compressor seized up

Go to the parts store tell them the issue and ask if there is a shorter drive belt that will allow you to bypass the AC compressor pulley
