These have a timing chain with no tensioner. I assume you mean the serpentine belt tensioner. Take the belt off, and unbolt the tensioner assembly from the engine. You can also just replace the pulley. Some pulleys are left hand (reverse) thread, so try loosening the bolt both ways.

    Okay, keep going left. It will unscrew. It's probably never been taken apart before, so spraying some penetrating oil just behind the pulley might help.

You really need a repair manual for your model. Most Auto parts stores carry these. However, If your timing belt has been broken (burnt) while the vehicle was running, then you'll need to check for bent valves or cracked pistons. If you are not one, you may need a mechanic.

You have a timing chain that is good for the life of the engine. The only thing that could need replacing is the chain tensioner if it starts to make noise.

1996 jeep cherokee sport with 4.0 does not have a tensioner on the fan belt. How do you change it?


One of the idler pulleys has a built in spring loaded tensioner. You have to use a ratchet to turn it, which relieves tension on the belt while removing and also when replacing the belt.

Hello, how to relieve the belt tension on jeep grand cherokee 1995?


Hi,


In order to relieve the belt tension in your cherokee jeep,you have to locate the belt tensioner pulley first, which is found between the crankshaft and a component toward the top of the hood area.

Afterwards,Rotate the belt tensioner pulley, using a wrench spanner to relieve the tension on the belt.



Good luck.

I BELIEVE THAT IT HAS A TIMING CHAIN. IT SHOULD BE CHANGED AT OR ABOUT 100,000 MILE. BUT IT DOESN'T NECESSARILY NEED TO BE CHANGED THEN, JUST INSPECTED.

Need to find the tensioner location on a 1993 jeep grand cherokee


it doesn't have a tensioner. if you are looking at the engine there is a bolt located under the poweer steering pump that you need to loosen and then there is a long 1/2" bolt that you must loosen until the pump starts lowering and you can get the belt off. The power steering pump pivote up and down to change the belt instead of a tensioner.

My jeep keeps shreding serpentine belt


Either the tensioner is defective and needs replacing, or the pulleys are out of alignment. I would suspect the tensioner pulley is bad. I am assuming you are installing the correct belt.

If you have the same pulley arrangement that most 4.0 engines have that pulley is an idler not a tensioner. Your power steering pump has a pivot bolt, and a slide under the pump. You adjust belt tension using the pump.
