Have a 96 cherokee sport overheated and towed. Found the serpentine belt broke and the crank shaft is pushed out. Also they told me there is water in the oil, does this mean the engine is shot?? Can't spend any more $$ on this if it is..any help...Thanks!

Water in the oil is a mad thing and is very costly to repair, there is head gasket problem or a cracked head it self and the engine will need a over haul. Sorry for the bad news and be safe friend.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee will not start. Serpentine belt broke, so I replaced it, but now it will not start even with a jump. only clicks. Starter?


Maybe.
But what caused the belt to break ?
You might want to make sure the crank will turn and that the engine is not locked up.
If the crank turns, you would need to check for battery voltage at the starter.

Have 96 jeep cherokee sport will not start not getting fuel or fire cranks over fine all fuses and relays are good


Hey I have a 96 grand Cherokee aswell I had the same prob. When you turn the key to the on position does the dash light say your out of gas but you know your not? If so it's your crank shaft position sensor a $60 part it's located above the tran so youll have to lower not drop it to get to it. Shouldn't take more than 30 mins to do hope I was able to help an good luck

Driving home went to turn corner, could hardly turn temperature gage went to hot and battery light came on. Was told I needed a harmonic crank shaft fixed, idler belt tension, and reoplace surpentine belt....


They are jerking your chain then. Serpentine belt, most likely. There is no such thing as a Harmonic Crank Shaft. There is a Harmonic Balance Pulley which is attached to the Crank Shaft but if that is damaged you have really got a lot more damage there than you have described. Serpentine belt will cost you about $40 at auto Zone and takes about 15 minutes to install if you do it yourself. Pay attention to the routing and I bet once you replace that everything will work fine.

1998 grand cherokee 4.0 eng. crank shaft pulley,is there a back piece for the belt to go on?


are you talking about the serpentine belt or the timing chains, the serpentine belt is what drives the alternator,power steer,water pump, and goes around a few idlers. and around crank pulley that is in front of harmonic balancer. Did the belt fall off? is the pulley missing? cause it should be very self explanatory and visual.

Crank shaft seal leaking on 96 saturn sli 1.9 liter


In order to replace the seal your will have to remove the serpentine belt,the water pump pulley, the plastic timing belt cover, the crankshaft pulley and etc. You should get a book(from oriellys or Auto Zone) that will give you the exact process since it is hard to give step by step procedure without diagrams etc. They are good books.

I just replaced my water pump now my water pump is running backwards 96 chevy 2.2 caviler,i think I threaded the belt wrong,it looks like the diagram on the hood.


The waterpump pulley is smooth. It the smooth side of the belt touching the pulley or the grooved side. It should be the smooth side.

My 2002 PT Cruiser died on the side of the road yesterday. The car has 95,000 miles and I beleive the serpentine belt broke. Had the car towed to the dealership and before the service adviser had someone...


The reason the service writers always recommend that the water pump be changed along with the timing belt and cam and crank seals, is that they are all located together, and it takes a long time (which you pay for) to take everything off to get to the area, so you may as well replace the other things which will go out soon with that high of a mileage anyway. Altogether, it runs between $500-$700, but it should last you another 100,000 miles. Your serpentine belt should cost about $130 parts and labor. If you are in doubt or the dealership has a bad reputation, have it towed somewhere else. Any time you have doubts, cal the BBB in your area and ask questions.
