Engine light is on after replacing radiator fan. jeep liberty

Check the belt. You have a serpentine belt that you removed to replace the fan. Verify it is on, tight and in the right sequence around the pulleys. The light probably will not be fan related but indirectly from the belt or a component that was moved or disconnected. Start with the fan belt.

How tight do I tightnen a serpentine belt?

you tighten it a little tighter than a v belt but not so tight that you cannot push down on the belt with pressure so it moves a little.

How do you replace a serpentine belt for 1996 jeep cherokee sport?

You need to loosen up the power steering pump and un-adjust the jack bolt that runs under it. Then just follow the diagram on the sticker on the radiator support. If you can't find the sticker, I'll give you the routing if you ask. to tighten the belt just tighten the jack bolt and lock down the bolts you loosened on the pump. Tight is when you have about one inch deflection in the longest run of the belt,
Loose is better than too tight as you can re-tighten it if necessary. Too tight will damage pulley bearings.

Screeching sound when first drive away after being stopped... goes away after a bit, but returns with next stop

Check and/or replace the serpentine belt, and check and/or replace the serpentine belt tensioner/pulley assembly, that will fix your problem.

Good Luck !

I'm having problems with putting my serpentine belt on my 92 grand marquis. Why are there so many different belts for the same car. And also, its so hard to try and get the belt on and it to be really...

If it IS a serpentine belt, the tensioner should be fairly tightly spring loaded (if it is still in good condition), so if the belt is not getting tight, (and the tensioner is in good condition), you must be misrouting the belt. There is only ONE WAY the belt can be properly installed.

A serpentine belt has a spring loaded belt tensioner-no adjustment.
Each v-belt has its own separate belt tensioner which must be mechanically adjusted for tightness.

Is there still a sticker on your hood or by the fan shroud showing the proper belt routing for reference?

Hope this helps.

I can't get the serpentine belt on my 2002 Jeep Wrangler

Before installing the new belt, rotate the tensioner pulley until it's in it's "free arm" position. This will enable you to get the belt routed around the other pulleys saving the tensioner pulley for last. Once on, rotate the belt until the tensioner pulley takes up slack. It should lock into place once the engine is started. Best of luck and please post back either with any questions or to rate this solution. Thank you.

Power steering

I have recently had to work on 3 different jeep cherokees 92, 98, 99 and have encountered a similar problem on the 92. The serpentine belt broke and needed replacement, it connects all the major functions in your motor including your power steering, fan, water pump and yes altenator...after replacing your new powersteering pump (which by the way is a real pain in the **** with having to mount the new pulley...)
The jeep wouldnt start and I also had a drained battery so I had to use a jump box to get it started...there is no such thing as a safety for power steering...
