Question about Oldsmobile Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Trying to figure out how to replace the tensioner on a 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera. What has to be removed to get to it, and is there a "how to" video out there?

There's a big pulley in front of where the tensioner is mounted, and appears to be to the power steering...? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How do you release tension from the serpentine belt to change water pump on a 89 oldsmobile cutlass ciera?


In the middle of the idler pulley/tensioner, there is a bolt head (I think it is a 13 or 15mm). Use a wrench or socket to turn it away from the belt, this will release the tension on the belt and allow you to remove the belt. Be careful, it is spring loaded....

Need a diagram of how a serptine belt is installed on a 1990 olds cutlass ciera 2.5 lieter motor


Click on the following free direct Link. It has the Serpentine Belt Diagram and Tensioner location for your 1990 Oldsmobile Ciera, depending on your size 2.5L Engine options (AC/No AC, etc.).

GENERAL/Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with a Tensioner:
A. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
B. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
C. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
D. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.

Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with Tensioners:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them.
