SOURCE: 94 Mercury Cougar xr7 3.8l Belt Tensioner Re Install

The tensioner is not adjustable, the spring in it provides a preset tension, I don't understand what you did, but if it came apart then most likely you damaged it, buy a new one, if you get it wrong and it falls apart on the road you are stuck.

SOURCE: egr problem

Check the passages under the airhorn. When carbon builds up the diagnostic blames the EGR for not opening and throws a code. Actually there is no flow to the EGR because the port is clogged and the diagnostic measures the flow after the EGR.

They really needed to have a sensor before and after the EGR. Also remember to disconnect the battery for 10 minutes to remove old info.

SOURCE: How Do I Release The Tension Pulley To Change A

Hi:

First, you want to make a drawing of the belt routing, if there isn't a picture of how it goes on a decal, under the hood.
The tensioner pulley is released in one of two ways, depending on the type installed.

It either has a square hole you can insert a ratchet or breaker bar into, and rotate it while slipping the belt off, or some have a hex head area that you can use a socket or wrench to rotate it. They are usually spring loaded, so to put the belt back on, you route the belt around everything else, then rotate down the tensioner, and put the belt over it last.

How do you tighten a loose serp. belt for 1997 mercury cougar xr7


There is no adjustment on the serpentine belt. I'm assuming that you have a 4.6 since it's an XR7. There is a spring loaded tensioner that keeps the belt in proper adjustment. The tensioner may be bad, or just corroded in one position. If there's no diagram for the belt routing under the hood...draw one. Then remove the belt and carefully persuade the tensioner to move. Careful not to break it or it's mount. If it doesn't move, it's going to need replacing. It's the one on the little arm, the arm should move.

How do you change an idler pulley on a 97 mercury grand marquis


Using either a serpentine belt tool or a long ratchet and a socket on the tensioner pulley bolt, turn the tensioner to relieve tension and pop the belt off. Remove the idler pulley bolt and replace the idler pulley. To finish it up simply reinstall the belt.
