If the battery is not new, the haywire gauges are telling you it needs to be replaced.

My serpentine belt broke on my 97 ford escort a


The water pump doesn't run without this belt. I suspect the engine was overheated even if the gauge or light didn't yet register. I hope I'm wrong... This heads will overheat very quickly and have a low tolerance for this. I replace my belt and throw the old one in the trunk for just such a calamaty.

What does a serpentine belt operate and do all the pulleys suppose to work 1995 winstar


I don't know that car in detail, but it appears that there is one belt, driven of course from the crankshaft, driving the A/C, alternator, power steering, and the water pump. It also has an idler pulley and a tensioner pulley. Quite a belting.

2003 F150 - check engine light comes on and after having code reset, it came back on - all gauges going haywire, difficult to start. What is causing all this?


The CEL code, you need to know what it is to solve the problem, not just resetting it. If you have Autozone or the likes read it, get the number, not what the guy thinks needs to be replaced and post it back on this problem as a comment.

The gauges going haywire, do you mean when you turn the key on the gauges cycle to full, then to min, then work normal ? If so this is a sign of a low battery in the 97-03 MY F-150s. Couple this with the hard to start, it is showing as a battery that needs to be replaced.

We took the serpentine belt off our 03 ford taurus and there is no diagram to put it back on


There should be a diagram under the hood.
Look at the pully's, those with grooves get that side of the belt and those without get the other side, work your way around the outside, doing the water pump last

2000 Ford windstar engine is making a rattling sound after replacing a serpentine belt which may have been damaged by water pump freezing overnight although water pump is fine


Check all the pulleys for play in the bearings of the pulleys,and check the water pump play,pin the water pump by hand to see if it is it.The frozen water pump,will leak,most likely,hope the engine is o k.

Windstar 2001 had it since new. over 120,000 miles suddenly started stalling cuople months ago had alternator replaced, bearings anything on the serpentine belt incl oil and water pump checked or replaced....


The problem with your van is the CAM Sensor, I believe the noise you are hearing is kind of a chirping sound. I just had mine fixed (12/19/09) it was about $150 for parts and labor from a local Mech. not a dealer.

Serpentine Belt and pulley were replaced. Drove


High moisture with cheap belts would be a start. 2nd possibility is you have a bearing in an accesory drying out. Check water pump pully first with the screwdriver methode. Do not place on a moving part!!!
