I can't clarify the a/c question for you. Sorry. However, the Motorist Assurance Program (MAP) guidelines state that to recommend replacement of any multi-rib belt, the belt must have 8 surface seperations, on any one rib, in a one inch span.

NOTE-MAP guidelines are set forth by a third party to establish what an automotive repair facility can and cannot recommend and, why or what basis those recommendations can be founded. This is the guide for your largest and most respectable auto repair facilities. (Sears, Firestone CAC, NTB, Tires Plus, etc.)

Where exactly is the low port for the air conditioner on a 1998 Pontiac grand am


Normally you cannot charge the high port as the connection will not fit. Also if the A/C is working the high port gets much hotter than the low port. Also on the plastic cap it will have an L on the low pressure port and an H on the high pressure side. Do not try to recharge it unless you are 100% sure. If you are needing to recharge the system then it has a leak that needs to be repaired. It is technically illegal to add refrigerant to a system with a leak without first repairing the leak. So, my advice is to get the leak fixed first and then have the system charged by a professional with the proper equipment and training. But the choice is yours.

The low pressure port on the 2003 grand am is actually behind the engine, near the firewall on the passenger side. Good luck getting your hose down there though, I ended up buying an extension hose.

What are the steps in installing a serpentine alternator belt?


Open hood, losen alternator, down at the bottom on the battery side should be a pully, using a breaker bar pull this up which loosens the tension on the belt, might be a good idea to draw a diargram before removing the belt. Purchase a good belt at an auto parts store, they come in all prices.

Serpentine belt replacement


What engine do you have? The 3.3 and 3.8 engines have a single serpentine belt, and a belt tensioner, so no adjustment is needed. Did you replace the tensioner, and want to know how much to torque it? countrycurt0
