Alternator pulley shears off. Alternator is about 1 year old. The last few times I started the car there was a hard screech noise (like metal clanging) coming from the area around the serpentine belt....

If the bolt was lose and caused the pulley to bend down the power behind the belt was too great and sheared the pulley. Check belt for damage and replace pulley.

Stuck head bolts

If the head bolt heads are sheared off the only way you can remove it is by purchasing an easy-out kit, or and easy out extractor for the size bolt you are trying to remove. go to an auto parts store make sure you know the size bolt, because you will need the correct size steel drill bit to use with the easy out extractor after purchase, 1st soak each bolt with (pb-oil) and let stand about one hour you will have to drill the center of the sheared bolt, use cutting oil and low rpms on your drill and be patient because those head bolts will not be easy drilling, stay straight,after the the holes are drilled, when you insert the easy out as you turn to the left or counter clockwise it will tighten and grab the bolt to loosen it.
good luck!

1995 Ford Taurus V6-182 3.0L belt tensioner pully Center bolt (bolt on tensioner, not on pulley) sheared off. I already understand I will need to replace the tensioner assembly, that's not a problem....

If you can remove the bolt remnant without damaging the parent metal, you should be able to reinstall the tensioner. Get a new bolt directly from Ford so that you are sure you have the correct length, thread pitch, and hardness. If you are not very experienced in removing broken bolts, you may want to seek some help with this.

I put a new fan clutch on, the pully where the fan clutch bolts to is now loose, oil coming from behind pully, and sounds like fan is hitting shroud cover , and the reduced engine power light came on .

It sounds like something went wrong during the installation of your new fan clutch. If the bolts are loose the fan may very well be hitting the shroud. Your new clutch is probably a viscous style clutch and is filled with an oil like fluid and could be the oil that you are seeing. If your clutch was not working correctly and the vehicle was getting hot it may have caused the reduced power light to come on.

Assuming this is a XG 350, the process is lengthly.
1. Remove the RH radiator cooling fan (two 10mm bolts at the top & wiring harness connector to it).
2. Lift vehicle to remove the Right Front wheel (then remove 4 10mm bolts securing the plastic splash shield & remove it)
3. Loosen the 14mm nut on the alternator belt tensioner pully
4. Loosen the tension on the belt by rotating (counter-clockwise) the 14mm bolt at the bottom of the idler pully and remove the belt.
5. remove the pully & the idler pully (three 12 mm bolts)
6. Loosen the 14mm nuts at the top and bottom mounting points of the alternator.
7. Using a floor jack (or vehicle lift), support the engine using a jack-stand & 2x4 piece of wood under the oil pan.
8. This is tricky - lift the engine 'SLIGHTLY' to take pressure off the front engine mount - loosen the 17 mm nut on top of the mount itself and observe engine movement. If the engine moves upward 'slightly' remove the 17mm nut - if not, raise the engine slight more until you see the mounting bracket rise off the mount.
9. Remove the remaining 17mm nut (deep well socket), and two 17mm bolts and remove the engine mount bracket.
10. Here's another tricky step. Some 350's bottom Alternator bolt bores are 'SLOTTED'... some are NOT. You'll need to determine wether you'll need to REMOVE the lower bolt, or just loosen the mounting sleeve at the bottom bolt. If it's 'sleeved', I use an air hammer to loosen the sleeve. If it's not slotted, I remove the lower bolt (it's the only way to remove the alternator and pry it off).
11. At the top is an "L" bracket which uses two 12mm bolts to attach it to the engine (head). One of the two 12mm bolts is difficult to get to -- do your best to remove it because the battery cable to the alternator is in the way.
12. Disconnect the alternator wiring (battery cable & regulator harness connector)
13. Lift the engine as high as it will go & pry the alternator off its lower mounting.
14. manuver the alternator upward taking care not to damage the radiator.
15. Installation is in reverse order.
NOTE: If your XG's lower mounting point was slotted, your task is easy. If it isn't, your task now becomes more difficult as you must align the new alternator to facillitate re-insertion of the lower bolt.
PS If not slotted, I use a telliscoping magnet to help re-insert the lower bolt.

How do you remove the vibration dampener on a 1987 Nissan Pathfinder (6-cyclinder)? This is so I can remove the bottom front timing belt cover to get to the water pump.

get every thing out of your way that needs to be out of your way. figure a way out to hold the engine in place to get the crank pully bolt off wether it be with manual tranny and someone holding the brakes or if automatic you will need to hold the pully it self with something along the lines of a oil filter wrench like one with a chain that is adjustable this is what i use but you have to be sure not to damage the groves for the belt, a little nic or two will be ok. some cars have special tools to do the holding also. then take the bolt off. it will be tight so use good tools and you may have to use a cheater bar for leverage. and on assembly make sure everything is torqued to specs. the particular vehicle may require light duty lock tight on the pully bolt so check to make sure.
