SOURCE: serpentine belt slips off idler pulley

The A/C pully is supposed to spin freely until the AC is activated to run.. The cranshaft pully does not. Replace the tensioner pully. The belt has to fit in between the grooves on the pullys.

SOURCE: Replace belt tensioner pulley on 1994 buick skylark

You need to put a piece of wood underneath the oil pan and place a jack underneath the oil pan/motor, loosen the motor mounts that are next to the belts, then raise the motor enough to reveal the nuts/bolts for pulley...just dont raise the oil pan so high that you crush it or break something, only enough to be able to reach tension pulley...

    Looking for a diagram for a serpentine belt for a 2006, Dodge 2500


    The main drive belt or serpentine belt is important on any vehicle, but some have more than one belt to drive components from the crankshaft. The Dodge Ram and similar truck models have one true serpentine belt, a multi-ribbed belt that fits into grooves on various pulleys, that Dodge suggests inspecting for wear every 15,000 miles or 12 months.

    Disconnect the negative battery terminal. Because the electric fan can start even without the vehicle running, some mechanics suggest disconnecting the battery terminal while working in the serpentine belt area.
    2Locate the serpentine belt tensioner pulley. The belt tensioner pulley will have a bolt on its side. On some Dodge Ram models, the tensioner is directly below the air conditioner compressor pulley; look for it above the crankshaft pulley.
    3Rotate the tensioner pulley by turning the bolt, either with a wrench for some models or a breaker bar or ratchet for other models.
    4Slip off the belt and let the tensioner return to its position.

    How do you replace a crankshaft sensor for a 1997 olds Delta 88?


    There are two crankshaft sensors located at the edge of the harmonic balancer. That's the large wheel coming out of the engine, passenger side, the wheel that powers the serpentine belt. One sensor is the crankshaft position sensor and the other is... I forget... crankshaft angle sensor or something. I replaced both on my car. I don't know wich one is your problem. When you buy a sensor, get the one with the mounting bracket already attached. They had problems with the sensor getting damaged from being adjusted wrong. Having the bracket already attached gives you the right adjustment.

    Remove the serpentine belt. (It has a tensioner wheel. When that is moved, the belt becomes loose and can be removed.) With an 18 mm wrench, turn the crankshaft until one of the openings in the metal fin is at the sensor, giving a space where the sensor can be removed. One sensor is reachable from the top, but it is real hard to see. The other is reachable from underneath. My guess is, the lower one is you problem only because my lower one failed twice and the upper one only once. Your son has to crawl underneath, unhook the wire from the sensor, and unbolt the sensor mounting bracket. Put the new one in. Keep your fingers crossed.
