There are a few ways to going about this issue. If you aren't looking to take a lot of stuff apart, you can do this without taking the rail that holds the headlights and fans and stuff in, but it really limits your working area.

Step 1: (optional) Locate all of the bolts holding the metal piece with the belt diagram on and take them out. There are also some plastic push clips holding this piece to the bumper.

Step 2: Remove the front belt that goes to your crankshaft alternator etc...

You remove this by loosening the bolt on the pulley without any teeth on it. It should be the smallest pulley.

Step 3: Locate the tensioner pulley. This is the pulley that is closest to the top of the engine block. It is a spring loaded pulley. Do not loosen the bolt in the center of this pulley.

Step 4: There are two bolts holding this tensioner pulley in place. They are toward the center of the engine block and smaller than a lot of the other surrounding bolts. Loosen them, but do not remove them.

You will know these bolts are loose enough when the pulley moves.

Step 5: There is a square hole that is 1/2 in. on this pulley bracket. Using either a 1/2 in. breaker bar or ratchet use this hole to move the pulley over all of the way until it won't go any farther. (This will give you the most room to put the new belt on.)

Step 6: Retighten the two bolts that hold the pulley in place while the pulley is in this new position.

Step 7: Following the belt diagram, put the belt around all of the pulleys.

Step 8: Once the belt is on, loosen the two bolts that hold the pulley in place once more. This will put tension on the belt.

Step 9: Using the 1/2 in. breaker bar or ratchet, push the pulley in the direction to tighten the belt.

Step 10: Retighten the two bolts that hold the tensioner pulley in place.

Step 11: Put the other belt, and the frame piece back together.

NOTE: IF YOU HEAR A LOUD SQUEALING NOISE, OR YOU SEE SMOKE COMING FROM THE BELTS WHEN YOU START THE CAR, THE BELT IS TOO LOOSE! IMMEDIATELY TURN OFF THE CAR AND TIGHTEN THE BELTS!

Trying to find out what the pulley diagram is i need to replace a idler or tesion wheel I just do not know the exact name it is the one that is on the passenger side of the engine


Below is a diagram for 3.5L engines. The tension pulley should be the middle left pulley. There should be a tension screw just above it. Loosen the tensioner pulley, route the new belt according to the diagram and while applying pressure to the pulley, tighten it until it's secure.

Over heating 2000 Dogde Intrepid 3.2L


Hey Ninja,,, a bad thermostat will not cause the belt to break,,. BUT a locked up A/C compressor will, anything that is locked up or not freely working will cause the belt to break.. MAYBE the water pump is locked up and you are forcing it to try to turn.. this will give you the symptoms you describe..

How to you install a water pumpon a 3.5 97 dodge


Remove the hood bracket bar, 4bolts, then the fan shroud assembly, then the belts, belt adjuster, and timing covers, line up the cam gears, crank gear to the marks , cam has 1 dot, they line up to timing housing 2 dots, (single dot to middle of the 2 dots), crank has 1 dot to mark on the oil pump housing to your right of crank gear, thats TDC. now remove the timing belt tensioner, 2 bolts, and remove the belt, if the pump has leaked, replace the belt, and tensioner if it is NOT metal Pulley, the fibre one will break down from the antifreeze. its a good idea to replace the water pump housing orings behind it, ac bracket has to come off, as the right cam on engine, this not a retiming iussue with the gear. GOOD LUCK. RDJRP
