Serpentine belt on '97 3.8 Mustang pops off idler pulley even though everything appears to be properly aligned after A/C compressor replacement.

If the idler and nearby pulleys are all in-line, not excessively worn and the axis is exactly at a right-angle to the belt run the belt should not pop off, therefore either the idler or other pulleys are worn tapered or sagging or it is possible the belt has become stretched on one edge.

You could try turning the belt around so it is traveling in the opposite direction and see if it makes any difference. Some idler pulleys will also turn round if required.

I hope this provides food for thought.

Need to replace a pulley on a 2001 silhouette. don't know which onw though

The pulley youll need to replace is called a pulley tensioner,it comes with a automatic tensioner and a pulley all in one unit, when this tensioner wears the drive belt can no longer maintain a correct tension, when tensions are loose a belt noise develops as high RPM are achieved you develop a squeeling noise even at start up. Failure to replace a worn tension developts a glaze on the drive belt thus wearing it out quicker,by all practical means if you reuse the same belt the rotation must be followed,drive belt being rubber in nature developts conicity and fail if rotation is not maintain,so it always a good idea to replace the drive belt when you replace the pulley tensioner

My power steering belt came off. I put it back on, and tightened the tensioner, and the belt popped right off. The engine was not even started. What do you think could be the problem?

Maybe the belt was not center on the pulley's, try it again, make should the belt is center on all pulley, there no other reason why the belt would pop off, if the engine was not running.

Drive belt popping off

I'm assuming you mean your serpentine belt. You most likely have a worn bearing on your idler pulley and/or tensioner pulley. Given the low price of these pulleys and the possible cost of repairing the possible damage when this belt comes off I would recommend replacing both.

I recently lost my power steering and my ABS light and battery light came on after a loud pop and my coolant system stop working immeditaly after that happened the manual suggested the drive belt, can give...

It's the power steering, altinator and water pump belt. It is also held in place with two plastic tensioners on a V groove belt. The Pop, or bang, you heard was the belt comming off the drive mechanism. The belt may not be at fault. The tensioners give up from time to time so you would be better advised to ensure that the tensioners are still in operative condition before you replace the belt. The belts are about $200.00-$250.00 a shot, so you'll be wasting your money on just replacing the belt, without having the tensioners checked. I am not sure what engine is in you Boxter, if it's belt or chain driven to thecam, belt I would have thought, so it would be cheaper for you in the long run to have the both belts changed at the same time. it's false economy not to do so. take your chance if you want.

2000 Diamante, Timing Belt ? Loud pop, explosion, bang...

sounds like the belt tensioner. look for any drive pulley that doesn't actually drive anything but is turned by the belt... that is spring loaded and keeps tension on the belt... if it moves freely... it needs to be replaced.
