Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

My eclipse's drive belt is loose with the tensioner all the way down. I checked new belts and mine is not stretched. Is there a diagram for installing it? The pulley on the crank shaft does not have grooves, not sure if something fell off.

    You need a new crank pulley/harmonic balancer. The rubber separating the grooved portion from the hub has deteriorated and the grooved portion has fallen off. This happens a lot on 00-05 eclipses. You need to clarify which engine you have and with or without AC for your diagrams. Otherwise there are 8 different diagrams :)

Your belt is not appropriate. try replacing with a shorter belt that fits the groove of the crankshaft and alternator

Loose serpentine belt


Most likely you need a new belt and tensioner pulley. The tensioner is spring loaded and when they get weak, they allow too much play. The belt can also stretch and they need periodic replacement so do both at the same time.

Take a picture for belt routing or find the diagram on the fan shroud.

I need to replace the serpentine belt on my car. How do I do that?


These instructions will help you . and also the picture below will help you more.
1
Locate the belt-routing diagram, printed on the fan shroud or possibly applied to the underside of the hood. This diagram shows you how to properly route the new belt, as well as identifying the location of the various pulleys, including the serpentine belt tensioner.
2
Move the belt tensioner off the Sable's belt using the serpentine belt tool. The tool connects to the side of the tensioner's arm and essentially acts as a handle for use in moving the tensioner. You can purchase a serpentine belt tool at most auto-part retailers.
3
Slip the belt away from the tensioner with your free hand and release the pressure on the tensioner with the tool. Pull the belt off the rest of the pulleys by hand and then remove it from the engine well.
4
Grab the old belt and new belt with one hand and put your foot through the other end of the belts. Stretch them both to their full length and check to ensure their both the same size. The old belt may have up to one-inch of extra length due to normal stretching that occurs during the belt's service life.
5
Wind the new belt, rib side to the pulley, around the crankshaft pulley. Consult the routing diagram and route the belt to the next pulley on the diagram. Continue to route and then check the diagram until you have the belt wound around every pulley except the belt tensioner pulley.
6
Double check to make sure the belt routes exactly as shown on the diagram and then move the tensioner aside once more so you can route the belt over the tensioner pulley as shown in the diagram. Move the tensioner back into place slowly and remove the tool.

Good luck

Battery light turned on. Lost power steering and AC.


You broke your serpatine belt. Needs replacing. It's a $50ish part and easy to do if you have a diagram under the hood of how the belt fits. But if it was "rattling" for a couple of weeks take it in for crying out loud. Let the mechanic look it over to make sure your lack of vechile care didn't destroy anything under the hood.....

Serpentine belt keeps coming off


Probably a bad belt idler or tensioner. Check the idler and tensioner for a bad bearing.

79 firebird belt replaced that wraps around the compressor/clutch for a/c. A/c blows cold, first belt was too big, brand new second belt perfect size, and checked, but when driving, belt starts squeeling....


Your new belt wil have stretched a bit, and you should have enough adjustment to stop the squeek. I'm not 100% sure if there are tensioners on the belt, if so they may reqire greasing or to check out, spray the tensioners with releasing oil' leave for an hour and see if they have moved. They are plastic bushes that your belt would have gone round.

To quieten a belt that squeeks, get some talcum powder, and when the engine is running spray it over the groove in the belt, it may be that's all it needs beccause there is a small bit of contamination on the belt, this wil soak uo any gunk and make your car quiet again. Let me know, regards, dave

How to release tension on 1995 chevy 5.7L serpentine belt


Look at the diagram which should be on the radiator fan shroud.  This will show you the path the belt takes around the myriad pulleys on the engine.  There is a tensioner pulley whose only job is to maintain the tension of the serpentine belt.  It may be marked on the diagram.  If not, it is the pulley, usually near the top of the engine, that is not the air compressor, alternator, water pump, etc.  I have found that a box-end wrench or a socket wrench which fits the bolt on the pulley, is sufficient.  Just gently swing the pulley away from the belt slightly.  Just enough to release the tension so you can slide the belt off.  You don't have to worry about the bolt coming loose, as it should have far more torque holding it on than you'll put on it to release the belt tension.  Note, that once the belt is off, the tensioner will swing further than it was before, since the belt is not there to stop it.  So when you put the belt back on, you'll have to swing it back down/up to the same position it is in now, if not farther, since the new belt hasn't stretched.

My 98 eclipse is making a screeching noise in the engine


1.Most likely alternator belt is not tight enough or need new one.2. A/C-Power steering belt is loose or need new one. 3. Bearing in A/C-Power Steering Tensioner is going bad. 4. Not the water pump unless you are loosing water all the time. Timing belt runs the water pump & you need to tear down the engine. If so ,you would need to replace the timingbelt,tensioners, and maybe the hydraulic tensioner. NOT FOR $300, more like 5-600. Get yourself a Haynes Manual for 95-99 Eclipse at AUTOZONE,Advanced Auto, or Pep Boys and read up on this.
