Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Silhouette

2 Answers

JUST CHANGED WATER PUMP, POWER STEERING PUMP, BELT TENSION ASSEMBLY. EVERYTHING OK FOR ABOUT 2 WEEKS AND NOW THERE IS A KNOCK OR RATTLE COMING FROM THE FRONT OF ENGINE. WHEN BELT IS REMOVED THE NOISE GOES AWAY. CHANGED WATER PUMP AGAIN TO MAKE SURE WE DIDN'T HAVE A BAD PUMP. NOISE STILL THERE. WHEN LOOKING AT THE DAMPER PULLEY, IT APPEARS TO HAVE A SLIGHT WOBBLE AND WHEN BELT IS REMOVED IT SMOOTH OUT AND NOISE GOES AWAY? THE RATTLE IS LOUDEST WHEN STARTING OR WHEN YOU SHUT OFF THE ENGINE.

The damper could be bad if it's the type with the rubber inbetween the pully and the the rest of the damper. check that and see if it is separated. if not looks like your crankshaft bearings could be bad

I would suggest checking the bolts that attach the pulley to the balancer to make sure they arent coming loose. Also I had the same problem with a pickup two weeks ago the rattling noise started after I installed a new belt tensioner It was loud at start up and when you shut the truck down. It turned out to be the a/c compressor clutch assembly the added tension from the new belt tensioner proved to be too much for the clutch and they seem to act up when the weather gets cold. Just some other things to check. Especially when you said the noise stops when the belt is removed. Most all engines I have seen running without the belt seems to have a little wobble in the balancer to your eye while the engine is running without the belt. Hope this helps

Accessory belt vibration or rattle have changed power steering pump also idle pulley tension pulley & tension spring


Hi Ann:
Just an idea.
You could also check the water pump bearing.
Slack the tension, then see if the fan will wobble if you try to move the blade tips at right angles to the plane of rotation.
I'm assuming the belt is in good condition.
The other possible is that the drive pulley (harmonic damper) off the crankshaft has failed. If you shine a flashlight at the damper while the engine is idling you will see the wobble if this is the problem.
Work Safe! Moving parts can bite your fingers off.
Hope this helps.
Cheers

Power steering belt needs to be replaced and tightened, how do i do it?


The belt is changed by loosening the power steering pump at the adjustment bolt and also the pivot bolt: The following instructions tell you how to remove the whole power steering pump, but you just have to adjust the tension with it.

A long pry bar might help to tighten the tension until there is like 1/2" to 3/4" deflection in the middle of the belt between two pulleys, and when running there doesn't appear to be a lot of play in the appearance of the belt while the pulleys are rotating, and that when the steering wheel is turned, you don't hear any squealing indicating a slipping of the drive belt.

Good luck on this repair:


Power Steering Pump REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Remove the hoses at the pump and tape the openings shut to prevent leakage.
  2. Remove the pump drive belt.
  3. Remove the retaining bolts, any braces and the pump.
  4. If a new pump is being installed, and the pulley is being transferred, a puller is necessary to remove the pulley. To install:
  5. Torque hose fittings to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm). Fill the reservoir with approved power steering fluid and turn the pump backward (counterclockwise as viewed from in front) until bubbles no longer appear in the reservoir.
  6. Any time the pump is removed, air must be bled from the system upon reinstallation. Bleed the system as described in the next procedure. Fig. 1: Exploded view of the power steering pump assembly 85848076.gif

How do u change a serpentine belt for a 1999 ford escort zx2


ADJUSTMENT 1.8L Engines ALTERNATOR AND WATER PUMP BELT
  1. Loosen the alternator adjusting bolt.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Loosen the alternator mounting bolt. NOTE: Do not pry against the stator frame. Position the prybar against a stronger point, such as the area around a case bolt. Fig. 1: A belt tension gauge should be placed on the longest span of the belt to check tension — 1.8L engine 90981g05.gif

  4. Position a suitable belt tension gauge on the longest accessible span of belt and tighten the belt.
  5. Adjust the tension to 86–103 lbs. (383–461 N) for a new belt or 68–86 lbs. (304–383 kg) for a used belt.
  6. If a belt tension gauge is not available, adjust the tension to 0.31–0.35 in. (8–9mm) deflection for a new belt or 0.35–0.39 in. (9–10mm) deflection for a used belt.
  7. Tighten the alternator adjusting bolt to 14–19 ft. lbs. (19–25 Nm).
  8. Tighten the alternator mounting bolt to 27–38 ft. lbs. (37–52 Nm).
  9. Lower the vehicle. Fig. 2: Alternator and water pump pulley belt routing — 1.8L engine 90981g06.gif
POWER STEERING PUMP BELT
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Loosen the power steering pump mounting bolt and nuts.
  3. Adjust the power steering pump and, if equipped, the air conditioning compressor belt tension by turning the pump adjusting bolt. Fig. 3: Power steering pump belt routing and locations of the mounting bolts, nuts and adjusting nut — models without A/C 90981g07.gif

  4. Tighten the power steering pump mounting nut near the pump adjusting bolt.
  5. Position a suitable belt tension gauge on the longest accessible span of belt and tighten the belt.
  6. Adjust the tension to 110–132 lbs. (491–589 N) for a new belt or 95–110 lbs. (422–491 N) for a used belt.
  7. Check for proper belt deflection. For a new belt (one with less than 10 minutes of run time), the deflection should be 0.31–0.35 in. (8–9mm). For a used belt (one with more than 10 minutes of run time), the deflection should be 0.35–0.39 in. (9–10mm).
  8. Tighten the power steering pump mounting nut, located near the adjusting bolt, to 27–38 ft. lbs. (37–52 Nm).
  9. Tighten the pump mounting bolt behind the pulley to 27–40 ft. lbs. (36–54 Nm), and the remaining pump mounting nut to 23–34 ft. lbs. (31–46 Nm).
  10. Lower the vehicle. Fig. 4: Power steering pump belt routing and locations of the mounting bolts, nuts and adjusting nut — models with A/C 90981g08.gif
1.9L Engines The accessory drive belt for 1.9L engines has no provision for manual belt adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner. NOTE: Movement of the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension. Fig. 5: Drive belt routing — 1.9L engines 86751052.gif
2.0L Engines The accessory drive belt for 2.0L engines has no provision for manual belt adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner. NOTE: Movement of the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension. The belt tensioner has a belt length indicator. If the indicator marks are not between the MIN and MAX marks, the belt must be replaced. Fig. 6: Drive belt routing — 2.0L SOHC engine with A/C 90981g23.gif
