The AC compressor on my 98 RAV4 is making alot of noise. Can I get a new serpentine belt to delete the AC? Or is there an easier fix? I'm looking for the cheapest solution.


The cheapest solution is to replace the a/c clutch without servicing the a/c. Just leave the a/c off. Even with a bad compressor the clutch will still serve as the idler.

How do i set the timing belt on a 1997 cadillac catera?the betl did not break but how do i make sure the belt did not move a couple of teeth.


Hi, there should be marks on the belt itslf that align with hatch marks on the timing gears. Below are the instructions for installation. From these, you should be able to verify that the belt is in time. There are also some diagrams here: http://www.2carpros.com/diagrams/cadillac/catera/1997


To install:
  1. Install the timing belt.
    1. Start at the crankshaft pulley.
    2. Install the timing belt with a double dash (TDC) mark on the belt aligned with the marks on the oil pump and belt drive gear.
    3. Pinch the belt with special tool J 42069-30 to prevent the splines from jumping.

  2. Route the timing belt through the idler pulley for camshafts 3 & 4 then route the timing belt through the camshaft gears 3 & 4.
    1. Ensure the dash marks on the timing belt align with marks on the camshaft gears and the notches on the rear timing belt cover.
    2. If necessary, loosen timing belt idler pulley or move the cam gears slightly, with J 42069-1 and 2 still in place, until the timing belt can be installed.
    3. Tighten the idler pulley locking bolt until snug. The idler pulley bolt will be tightened to specifications after the final adjustments are made.




NOTE Timing belt deflection between the camshaft gears number 4 and the idler pulley for camshafts 3 & 4, must be no more than 0.4 inch (1 CM.).

  1. If necessary, adjust the timing belt deflection by turning the timing bolt idler pulley eccentric, for camshafts 3 & 4, counter-clockwise with the special tool J 42069-40, or equivalent.

  1. Route the timing belt through the timing belt idler pulley for camshafts 1 & 2 then route the timing belt through camshaft gears 1 & 2.
    1. Ensure the dash marks on the timing belt align with the marks on the camshaft gears and the notches on the rear timing belt cover.
    2. If necessary, loosen the timing belt idler pulley or move the cam gear slightly, with J 42069-1 and 2 still in place, until the timing belt can be installed.
    3. Apply sufficient tension to the timing belt to prevent it from slipping off the gears by turning the timing belt idler pulley eccentric for camshafts 1 & 2 counter-clockwise with special tool J 42069-40 or equivalent.
    4. Tighten the idler pulley locking bolt until snug. Idler pulley bolt will be tightened to specifications after final adjustments are made.

  2. Route the timing belt through the timing belt tensioner.
  3. Apply initial tension to the timing belt by turning tensioner eccentric counter-clockwise, with a 5 mm hex wrench, until marks are set.
    1. Tighten the belt tensioner-locking nut to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).

  4. Adjust the timing belt.
    1. The timing belt must be properly adjusted or engine damage may occur. Do not continue with the engine assembly procedure until the timing belt is properly adjusted.

  5. Install the timing belt cover. Tighten the timing belt cover bolts to 71 inch lbs. (8 Nm).
  6. Install the power steering pump pulley and bolts. Install the water pump pulley and bolts.
    1. Tighten the power steering pump pulley bolts and the water pump pulley bolts after the serpentine drive belt is installed.

Serpentine belt , idler pulley bearing?

Jan 24, 2010 | 2005 Ford Focus

My idler pulley is making a squeaky light grinding niose.


Any Auto Parts store or even a Wallmart may have a WD 40. I would first try to spray this behind or right where you see the Axel of this Idle pulley.
Unfortunately it may be getting old and dried out.
If you have any grease or even - sounds funny - Vaseline - try smearing this on where the Axel meet's the round pulley.
Blessings,
A/V Guy

A high pitched whining noise in the engine.


This Noise Description sounds Indicative of the Sounds that come from the Serpentine Belt Or Related parts such as Belt Idler Pulley or Belt Tentioner witch also has a Pulley, but if Tensioner itself is Literally BROKE I've replaced a number like this it will cause a Whining noise . Best case scenario its just the Belt, and if any of the other Problems turn out to be the Culprit the Belt MUST be Replaced Anyhow as Damage is Being caused By the Very Whining you hear.
PLEASE Spend the Extras $ for the BEST BELT as this Drives your Water pump, Alternator, A/C Compressor, Power Steering Pump All Crucial to Control of, easy Steering ,All Electrical-Power Distribution, The COOLING of Engine << VERY CRITICAL Component
The Pulleys usually have a more Hum type Whining. So I would say at Best The BELT , And WORST Belt Tentioner is Broke

VW Golf 3 jumping out of gears


Sounds like a stripped reverse gear. And for the second gear probally need a new gear (1st 2nd) and the syncros with a new hub. If too much metal from the gears has already made it's way around in the bearings through the transmission oil you might be looking at a new transmission. The Golf 3 generation had many problems with reverse gears. Sorry to be the one to tell you.
