Question about 2000 Chevrolet Prizm

1 Answer

How am i missing a pulley on a 2000 chevy prizm.

Engine started running rough. battery light came on, lost power steering, started smoking out the tailpipe. i have been told that i need a new power steering pump and a new belt. got the belt and it was tt long i was told. after further inspection i was told i was missing a pulley hence why the belt was too long cause it had to be wrapped around another pulley. which pulley do i need and how hard is it to replace?

If its smoking out the tail pipe a belt is not going to help.. I suspect you either have the wrong belt or possibly you are missing the belt ajuster. Go look at a 2000, prizm and see what you are missing. OR Most cars Have a belt diagram sticker under the hood showing the routing of the belt.. check to see if your car has this. It will answer your question.. DON'T SPEND TOO MUCH MONEY ON THIS CAR Till YOU MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT HAVE MAJOR ENGINE DAMAGE.

The power steering pump shaft may have broken inside the pump. I have seen this happen on a these trucks. Have your pump checked.

the puff of smoke is one of 2 things, dampness in the exhuast from setting over night,like ice water on a hot day ,the glass draws miosture,this is harmless, the other is worn valve seals,a puff of gray blue smoke then it,s gone,harmless.,but if it smokes while your driving it after 2 minits you may need new positive check valve $5 part,if it uses excessive oil have it checked

Battery light and abs light on hard to steer overheating


sounds like you either lost your fan belt, or you have a seized up alternator, or belt tensioner. The fan belt [ drive belt ] turns the alternator to charge the battery, the power steering pump to make easy steering , and the water pump cooling your engine. Do you smell rubber burning? hear a squealing noise? or rattling noise. Open your engine bonnet, start the car up, and look at the drive belt and pulleys. They should all be turning. If this is the problem you will see something seized up. Also if you have let the power steering pump run out of oil, it may also be seized. Good luck with it

The valve cover gasket isn't hard to change. Oil on the plugs indicates a more serious problem. Smoke from the exhaust would be from rings, rich mixture, worn valve guides. It may be that the engine is overfull (that would show on the stick). Oil loss from a leaking gasket would smoke under the hood and leave oil on the engine and the ground.

the crank pulleys (also called a harmonic dampener) on these vehicle are a fairly common failure. as they begin to break apart, the pulley will begin to have a wobble as the engine runs, causing the drive belts that power your alternator, power steering, etc to loosen off. when the belts then get wet, combined with being loose, they will slip, causing your accessories not to work. hope this was helpful!

Power streering leak, smoke under hood for 1996 Geo Prizm


Yes , power steering fluid will smoke if it gets on a hot engine, especially on any part of the exhaust system. Barring anything else wrong with the engine such as a coolant leak, and the engine running OK otherwise, I would say that the smoke is from power steering fluid dripping or getting blown on the exhaust by the fan.
