Should not be too difficult if you apply pressure to the tensioner pulley for the serpentine belt (making it easier to remove). After disconnecting the negative battery cable you can then remove the Alternator.

Gasoline Fuel Filter There are three types of fuel filters; internal (in the carburetor fitting), in-line (in the fuel line), and in-tank (the sock on the fuel pickup tube). CAUTION

How do i remove the power steering belt from an 84 olds omega?

There is a serpinetine belt that goes around the p/s pump and the pulley and alternator. Ther are 2 bolts on the alternator one long that holds the alternator onto the vehicle and one short that adjusts the belts to tighten and loosen. Loosen both bolts, this allows the alternator to tilt letting you remove belt. Hope this helps. Good Luck

Where do you change the flasher on a 1996 oldsmobile ninety eight?

On the 1996 Olds LS. It was located on the back side of the fuse box. In other words the fuse box is located just under the left side of the steering column. It is exposed so you can access the fuses through a small plastic cover. But you can't access the flasher this way. You have to remove the whole plastic panel that runs in front of the steering column just under the dashboard. I removed three screws and lowered the panel to access the flasher. It's going to be "resting" in a small area on the backside of the fuse box. It was very simple to remove the existing flasher and plug in the new one. The operation from start to finish took about 10 minutes. Good luck and hope this helps.

How do i know if my '94 olds ninety-eight is turbocharged or not?

I assume you mean Supercharged. Look at your engine. If it is supercharged, you will see a large component with a shaft and pulley at the drive belt side of the engine right on top of the engine. It is usually grey or white in colour.

Supentine belt

The motor mount needs to be removed to change the belt. The labor guide is 1.5 hours for a trained technician with experience. There is no other way, sorry for the news.
