There is a good chance that the bearing in the alternator is getting dry or wearing out. Pull the belt off and see if the noise is still there when you run the engine.

2008 avenger,4cyl Engine rattles, oil change did not help. It also seemed to be shifting later so did a tune up and had the trans. flushed. 100000 so it was time. Motor almost seems to howl, but is running...


My engine rattled and i had the same things done, the oil change and tune up because i had 83000 miles. That didn't fix the problem and after spending $120 the mechanic said it was the alternator because there was some build up on the side of it which he said is a way to figure out if its going bad or not. Anyway this cost me almost $700 to fix now the rattling noise is gone and all is good. The mechanic said that it was ok to continue driving the car but if the alternator went completely out be prepaid to have it towed once your battery charge is gone.

I drive a 2006 hyundai elantra with around 30,000 miles on it and lately there has been a rattling noise coming from the engine bay. It happens around 2000 rpm and only in drive. I narrowed the noise down...


This sounds like a bad pulley, maybe bearings in the waterpump or alternator, you will need to remove belt and spin each pulley to locate and also check for a loose pulley.

Replace alternator


The alternator belt on the 1999 Dodge Caravan also controls the air conditioner compressor, the water pump and the power steering pump. The belt is called a serpentine belt, and it is designed to fit around all of the accessory pulleys at the same time. As the belt travels around each accessory pulley, it enables the accessory to operate. Once the belt is damaged, cracked or frayed, you should change it before it breaks. If that happens, each of the accessories will stop working.

Open the hood and prop it up so that it does not fall. Engage the parking brake.

Inspect the top surface of the fan shroud for the serpentine belt routing diagram. Follow the routing instructions on the diagram to install the new belt.

Locate the serpentine belt self-adjusting tensioner on the front of the engine. The tensioner is directly below the alternator. Use the bolt that connects the tensioner pulley to the tensioner arm to rotate the tensioner.

Turn the tensioner device counterclockwise to move the tensioner. This will relieve the tension from the belt. Once the belt has enough slack in it, slide the belt out from under the tensioner pulley.

Lift the belt off each accessory pulley. Slide the belt around the fan blades and out of the engine area.

Lay the old belt next to the new belt to ensure that the new belt is the correct width and length. Slide the belt around the fan blades and around the crankshaft pulley on the bottom of the engine.

Follow the belt routing diagram to position the belt around the air conditioner compressor pulley, the power steering pump pulley, the water pump pulley and the idler pulley. Once the belt is routed inside each accessory pulley, inspect the belt to make sure that it is securely inside the pulleys.

Crank the 1999 Dodge Caravan for 10 to 15 seconds to completely seat the belt ribs in the grooves on each accessory pulley. Shut the engine off and close the hood.

If the belt routing diagram for the 1999 Dodge Caravan is missing, use a pen and a notepad to draw the exact routing of the old belt and use it when installing the new belt.

I need the diagram for the serpinetine belt on a 1991 dodge spirit 3.0


The path of pulleys around which the belt goes (beginning with the crankshaft pulley, and moving clockwise around the array of pulleys) is in this order:
tensioner pulley (belt goes around the pulley counter-clockwise)
power steering pulley (belt goes...clockwise)
alternator (belt...clockwise)
idler pulley (belt going under the pulley)
and back to the crank pulley (belt...clockwise).

Need serpentine belt routing diagram for 1994 Dodge grand caravan


3.3L?
Looking at the engine from front (right side of the Van): Stating at the Top, Going Left to Right and Clockwise:
Over the Alternator
To under the Idle Pulley,
To Over the AC Compressor.
To the Left Side of the Water Pump.
To the Right side and Under the Crankshaft Pulley
To the Right side and Over and Down the Tensioner
To Under the Power Steering Pump
And Back up-to the Left side of the Alternator.
Advise when puting it on:
Put the Belt around everything else accept for the Alternator. After it is around all the rest of the Pulleys - Pull the belt up - tight from the Power steering Pump and the Idle Pulley to form a loop, holding the Belt close to the Altenator Pulley.
Using the 15mm wrench or belt tensioner bar - rotate the Tensioner Pulley towards the front of the Van and then place the belt over the Alternator.
Let me know if this helped or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Can't find the water pump on a 1990 dodge caravan


It is the pulley the closest to the A/C pump. There should be about 4 bolts that are 10mm that comes off. You will need to remove the belt.

Need diagram to install serpentine belt on 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 Hemi


There should be a diagram under the hood on the fan shroud or radiator support. If not, let me know and I see if I can find one. For the most part, if the pulleys it rides on are grooved, the belt ribs ride on it, it the pulley is smooth, the back side rides on it. From a picture of the alternator I have, from the passenger side coming up, over the alternator, then down and under the belt tensioner (smooth pulley), then up and over A/C compressor, then down and around P/S pump, up and around water pump, down around crankshaft pulley.
