.routing for a serpentine belt on a 1997 Ford Escort zx2 2.0 liter with air conditioning


Hi Pennie:
Try checking with your parts supplier. They will match the belt # for your vehicle. Sometimes there will be a diagram on the belt packaging. If you have the belt and you know it's the right one, here's a way to figure it out. One side of the belt will be smooth, the other has ridges. The ridges will be on the inside. Pulleys with grooves will have the belt ridges fit into them. Pulleys that are smooth will have the belt go under them so that the smooth side contacts the smooth pulley. They call it a serpentine belt because the belt snakes its way around the pulleys.
Hope this helps.

I have a ford 1991 tempo,4 cylinder. There is a screeching coming from my car. When the screeching happends all the lights dim, and the air/heat blows out low, ones the screeching stop the lights go back...


The noise is most likely the drive belt. On that year and model, you have 3 different drive belts: one for the power steering, one for the alternator, and a serpentine belt for the rest of the accessories. Based upon your symptoms, the alternator belt would be suspect. But in this case, the alternator belt is a secondary belt powered off of the A/C pulley. So the culprit is most likely the serpentine belt. Cheapest solution is to replace the serpentine belt and see if that resolves the problem. If the problem persists, then the automatic belt tensioner for the serpentine belt is the next most likely culprit. This is a royal pain to replace and just the part can set you back in dollars. I've attached an exploded view of the right engine mount -- you will need to remove most of this in order to access the tensioner. Good luck with that!

Need to replace serpentine belt on 96 pontiac bonneville don't have diagram on how to put it on pulleys, and motor mounts are in the way how do i do it?


On Bonnevilles (1996 SE ), the belt is routed around the front engine mount to get to the air conditioner accessory. Once you turn the tensioner counter-clockwise using I believe 5/8" socket with a 1/2" drive breaker bar, so you have good leverage, you can remove the belt from the accessories. The front engine mount has three legs that connect to the front of the engine (on the passenger side of the car). You have to unscrew the lowest of the three mounting points (easiest done from the under side of the car, with the plastic shielding moved out of the way), which is right next to the crankshaft pully. Then there is a round tube spacer in between the engine block and this leg of the engine mount that you take out, and you can pull the belt out through there.

Wat does the serpentine belt go around to helmak the motor turn


The engine's operation moves the serpentine belt, not the other way around. The serpentine belt uses engine power to operate the power steering pump, the air conditioning compressor, the alternator.

01 chrysler tc mini van squeels when i start it and now is squeeling and pulling the steering wheel when i turn, does this mean i need a ned power steering pump?


No! It appears that your Serpentine Belt needs replacing. The squeal is due to the belt slipping because of it's age. The serpentine belt on a Chrysler is self adjusting so "high speed glaze" or "cracks" in the wide belt will tell you it needs replacement. The only other belt you have separate from the Serpentine Belt is the one for the Air Conditioner. Another word to the wise, never use "Belt Dressing" on these belts. It only makes them deteriorate faster. If you have an old table candle, while the engine's running, place the wax on the underside of the belt and the squeaking should go away. (I feel like, 'what to do with those darn Holiday leftovers'). To see the belt jumping or squealing, have someone start the van and look under the hood while they turn the steering wheel back and forth and you will see the belt "shudder" or "jump" while squealing. A timing light being pointed at the belt will also give you a "stop-action" view of the belt.

No Rack and Pinion yet. (smile) Hope this Helps,
