May be you have purchased an oversize belt, loose may cause jumping, see if there is any adjustable to tighten the belt is available besides the pulley, plus to check if pullye's alignment at two ends are in order. if these not work, then you have to replace the belt with proper size .

I have a 2004 saturn vue I changed the idol pulley because it was making that noise then changed the serpentine belt but the serpentine belt keeps on popping can u tell me why?

Belt jumping the pulley ribs?

Check for worn out crankshaft damper pulley

The big one on the bottom

Only reason a belt moves, is an alignment issue
Something wore or changed since the vehicle was made

If you changed an idler pulley because of a bad bearing & noise,
that may have been one problem

Any snapping or jumping, is loss of spring tension in the tensioner
pulley assy. Those are the ones that wear & I thought you were referring to

Everytime i jump start my car it cranks but the battery light keeps coming on but i change the alternator and battery but it keeps turning off

check alternator output voltage. Should be 14.7v measure at rear of alternator and again at battery. they should be the same. if not
after that the wiring needs to be checked out. if alternator reads below 14.2v with everything turned on replace it.

Fan belt on 1999 ranger 3.0 keeps jumping off and shredding at water pump

Check that all of the pulleys are in alignment and in the same 'plane' with each other.
Also, check with the belt off for binding pulleys or crooked angled pulleys that would cause the belt to jump off.

How does it jump timing

the valve\cam timing can jump if the belt is worn or the tensioner is failing to keep the belt tight, also one of the pulleys may have a bad bearing

Car wont start possible jump timing

car wont start could be many things.your timing belt change is due at 60000 miles.if you at a 100000 miles and not change timing belt have a tensioner that keep it tight. .when it wears it loses tension and cause timing belt to slip time.i would check fuel system and ignition system for spark first before having.timing belt change. its going to cost you.

Broken timing belt

beeni3: I hate to be the one to give you the bad news. BMW's had interference fit motors. this meant that when a timing belt failed or the the engine was assembled out of time it would bend valves. With the car being that old, you may be able to buy a used engine for under a $1,000. Repairing yours will far exceed that.
IF you decide to go that route: make sure you replace the timing belt, cam and crank seals and water pump before you install the engine.
Good Luck.

Car keeps dying

Get someone to change your alternator just a cheap one from the wreckers. or if you don't want it to happen again get a reconditioned one. They are easy to change over.
