How to replace the serpentine belt for a 1987 chevy celebrity 4.5 liter


1987 Chevrolet Celebrity Serpentine Belt Routing and Timing Belt Diagrams

I had to replace the belt on a 1988 Buick Century (similar to the Celebrity, but with a four-cylinder engine). I found that the only tool that could reach the belt tensioner in the limited space was a socket on a breaker bar; there wasn't room for a ratchet, and I couldn't get the correct angle for a wrench. There may be more room at the end of a V-6 The tensioner bolt is one of the larger metric sizes.

Clean all of the pulleys before installing the belt. Verify that the belt tensioner, water pump and alternator bearings are good - no rough spots or slop, and make sure the tensioner spring is good - the tensioner should require some force on the tensioner bolt head to move it, but it should not grind, hang, or have out-of-plane movement (perpendicular to the pulley rotation).

If everything looks good, you can install the belt. The grooved side is on the inside around the grooved pulleys, and the smooth side is on the inside around the smooth pulleys. Make sure the belt is correctly seated on the grooved pulleys. Save the tensioner pulley for last - use your tool to pull the tensioner in against the spring, and slip the belt on over the tensioner pulley. {CAUTION: do not let your fingers get between the belt and the tensioner pulley. If your tool slips at this point, you'd be in a world of hurt.} Take one more look to make sure the belt is centered on all of the pulleys, then slowly release the tool to apply tension to the belt.

How do you put a timing belt back in time after it broke?


Well, hopefully the valves were not damaged when the belt broke, If no valve damage was done, get the engine/crankshaft to top dead center, line up camshaft sprocket to timing mark and install belt around pulleys, gears, replace water pump if needed, tension belt if no automatic tensioner is used, try to start to see if it runs and hopefully it will. Might be time for an engine if valve damage was done.

How do you remove the timing belt cover on a 1995 VW Golf.


What is needed Tools: 6mm and 8mm allen wrench socket, 5mm allen wrench. 8mm, 13mm, 19mm socket and ratchet. 10mm combination wrench. Long ratchet extensions (at least one 6in, more are helpful). 5inch Wheel puller (for main shaft pulley). (Some models may need a special spanner tool to adjust the timing belt tensioner) Parts: 2 gal of anti-freeze mixed with distilled water. All three V-belts. (Alt, A/C, P/S) $32.95 New water pump top. $91.91 New gasket for WP. $9.13 New timing belt. $26.13.


Procedure:

Remove battery cable (either power (+) or ground (-)) remove alternator remove A/C remove power steering pump .Remove water pump pulleys remove main shaft pulleys remove timing belt covers remove A/C mounting hardware remove timing belt (don't turn any of the wheels its connected to) replace timing belt adjust belt tension remove water pump face put on new gasket and new part.

Leave pulleys off. replace bottom timing belt cover, replace crank shaft pulley, replace steering pump, replace A/C, put small belt on A/C (hang loose) put large belt around A/C, Main and water pump pulley. put middle size belt on Main water pump and power steering pump reattach bolts for the steering pump pulleys put alternator back on adjust all belts. connect battery

Problem areas:
Main pulley: There are 4 6mm hex head bolts. These must be removed. The main 19mm hex head can be used to turn the engine it the timing belt slips and you have to readjust the timing.

Putting on new belts: This can be a real pain if you get VW belts. The adjustments won't give enough to put the belts over the edge so the easy way is to remove the pulley on the water pump. Then its real easy.

Timing: If you turn the wheels that the timing belt goes on you will have to reset the timing. Mark the timing points with something like whiteout so its easy to see. The timing mark on the toothed gears are small dots. The timing mark for the crankshaft is a small cut on the outer pulley. When its aligned with the intermediate wheel timing mark (there is an arrow on the cover as a hint) should intersect as viewed from the right wheel well. The camshaft timing mark should line up with the top of the engine near the front.

Power steering pump: It is held on with lots of bolts. One is in a channel that is hard to see but can be found with a 6" extension. If you look at the pump you will see three bolts that go into the housing. This should give you an idea where the forth is.

Im looking for the timing marks for a 1987 ford ranger 2.3l 2wd can you help me i have no manuel and no money


What are trying to do, change the belt or just set the timing? The timing marks should be on the left side (drivers side) near the front pulley. There is a notch or line on the pulley and the scale is on the timing cover. If you are trying to change the timing belt, you have to remove the fan and water pump pulley, then crank pulley and the timing cover. If you are changing the belt, here's a helpfull hint loosen the tensioner bolts, one 13mm one 17mm, then pull or push on the belt to force the ternsioner back as far as you can and tighten the 13mm bolt. Now you can take the old belt off and put the new belt on with ease. You have to set the crank at zero, I think the key in the crankshaft is straight up at this point, there is a diamond shaped mark on one of the teeth of the pulley, that lug has to line up with the notch in plastic behind the pulley. At this point you want the arrow on the cam pulley to point to the mark on the inner cover (about 6 o'clock) and the rotor in the distributor should point to the "V" notch in the pick up coil assembly (about 6 o'clock). Good luck!

How do i change a fan belt on a 1994 pontiac grand am v-6


To remove the belt, put a 1/2" drive breaker bar into the receiver on the tensioner and push the bar so it moves the tensioner counter clockwise. Remove the belt and put the new one back on following the diagram on the sticker on the car. If no sticker, before removal, draw yourself one. When putting the belt back on, get everything positioned correctly and again push the bar in the same direction as you did to remove and put the belt back on the tensioner pulley. Check that all pulleys are engaged with the belt properly, start the car and watch the belt for a few minutes checking that no pulleys are wobbling etc. and that belt is running true.
