    THEY ARE DESYROYED FALL OFF ON THE HIGHWAY

  • gabarracloug Sep 11, 2009

    THE ONLY WAY TO PUT ONE ON IS TO GET ALL LINED UP AND TURN THE CRANKSHAFT BY HAND AND ROLL THE BELT ON

    ALL THE BELTS CAME FROM AUTOZONE

    Hummm, for a belt to short, it would need to be able to conduct current, so I presume you mean the belt is too short. If it were actually too short, how can you get it installed? Is your tensioner spring loaded? How long are the belts lasting and why are you replacing them?

Do you have the belt routing diagram on the car? It may not be the right belt. Is it breaking? Check the tension pulley and all other pulleys to see if they turn freely

    Is it tight trying to get it installed if not maybe it's to loose and its walking to one side and fraying until it breaks. When the belt breaks is it frayed on one side or the other only?

  • roberta3fan Sep 11, 2009

    Yeah you have the wrong belt, where are you getting the belt?

  • roberta3fan Sep 11, 2009

    Well I think there should be a way to put it on without rolling it on. But even then when you roll it on like your doing you have to make sure the belt is in the grooves of the pulleys or it will walk side to side and break. also you must have a pulley or tensioner locking up just to snap a belt like that

Need to replace motor and transmission in a 97 Pontiac Grand AM G


Changing from a 1992 to a 1997 < WILL NOT Be EASY , As you must HAVE the ENTIRE ENGINE WIRING HARNESS , And ALSO the ECM for the older Set up. In the "5" YEARS there Were MANY CHANGES to the ENGINE Components= SENSORS and ACTUATERS .
its just a BETTER IDEA to Stay Whitin a year or 2 when Swaping ENGINES. SIZE OF SENSORS ETC. MAKES IT DIFICULT
