Correct sounds like the balance pully fell apart, common problem.the outter ring with grooves to hold belt is held together by rubber,wears out and falls apart,must replace that crank pulley,remove center bolt use a puller to remove pully, then install new one and belt.( must be a puller for newer dodges 1999 and up to work.hope this is helpful.

2005 dodge stratus r/t tensioner pulley and belt issue


ARE YOU POSITIVE THE SERP BELT IS NOT SLIPPING OFF THE CRANK PULLEY? I USE A STRIP OF DUCT TAPE TO HOLD IT ON THE PULLEY AS I FEED THE REST AROUND.

YOU SHOULD END UP WITH THE BELT TIGHT AND MUST THEN (USING A SERPENTINE IDLER PULLEY TOOL) RELEASE TENSION IN ORDER TO GET IT OVER THE CLOSEST, MOST CONVENIENT PULLEY...THEN RELEASE TOOL TENSION AND BELT SHOULD BE ON.
***FEEL FOR PROPER TENSION ON IDLER PULLEY (SERP BELT) IT MAY BE SHOT

2001 dodge stratus r/t 3.o liter outside pulley on harmonic balancer fell off. do i need whole new balancer or is there something that came off that holds it on?


ON most engines there is only on pulley as part of the harmonic balancer. It is the on that has the rubber between the pulley and the center bit on the crank. Any other pulleys are normally bolted to this pulley on the center hub piece . I'm thinking that the mount bolts have fallen out.

How to replace serpient belt


You need a 3/8 in. drive ratcheting wrench; there is a tensioner pulley that has an opening in it just for that wrench to take the tension off the belt system; just be sure before you remove the belt to make sure there is a guide to re-install it properly. If there is no guide then DRAW ONE AS YOU SEE THE BELT ROUTING AROUND THE PULLEYS.

I have a 1998 Dodge Stratus ES and am having problems getting the timeing belt on. Can somebody please explain how we may put the belt back on without a bunch of trouble?


Make sure your timing marks are lined up and start putting your belt on the rear cam first that would be 1,3,5 cam. Then route it under the water pump and up around the front cam 2,4,6 cam being careful the rear cam don't jump off it's mark. Keep tension on the belt while routing it. Continue routing it over the idler pulley keeping tension on it route it down and around the crank sprocket. Now set your tension pulley and replace the tension pin. Once the belt is set hand crank the engine 2 to 3 complete cycles then recheck your marks. This is for a 2.5 engine. Good luck hope this helps.

WARNING Do not attempt to check belt tension with a belt tension gauge on vehicles equipped with an automatic belt tensioner.

Drive belts on diesel engines are equipped with a spring loaded automatic belt tensioner. This belt tensioner will be used on all belt configurations, such as with or without air conditioning.
  1. Depending on the year of the vehicle, a 3/8 inch or 1/2 inch square hole is provided in the automatic belt tensioner. Attach a 3/8 inch or 1/2 inch drive-long handle ratchet to this hole.
  2. Rotate ratchet and tensioner assembly clockwise (as viewed from front) until tension has been relieved from belt.
  3. Remove belt from water pump pulley first.
  4. Remove belt from vehicle.

Belt tensioner. Socket size? Or is there some other way to release the tentioner so I can replace my belts.


Forget trying to get at it from the top, go underneath. Take off the plastic shroud inside the passenger side fender. It's held to the frame by three bolts (10mm?) and a couple of quick fasteners. Once it's out of the way you can see and work fairly easily. I did not need to jack. Locate the flat pulley, it's obviously the tensioner. Loosen, but do not remove, the nut in the center of the pulley. Then locate the bolt head on the end/tip of the bracket that the pulley is mounted to. That is the adjuster. Loosening that bolt loosens the belt and vice versa. The power steering belt tensioner is very similar. Enjoy yourself!!

I need to do serpatine belt on 96 ford taruaus 3.0


On the Inside of the Engine Compartment you will find the Routing Sticker for the Belt to Reinstall. Locate the Tensioner (Will look like a Pulley that has one Round Pulley Under the Belt and One larger Round Pulley Mounted Above that. In the Middle of the Large Pulley there is a Bolt. Get a Wratchet and Turn it. It will Lower the Pulley under the Belt and Loosen the Tension Off of the Belt. Remove the Belt. Follow the Diagram Under Hood to Reinstall.
