2003 Saturn 2.2 ecotec will not start. Drove in, replaced battery and hasn't started since. Tried re learning Passlock and it did not work. Sounds like compression is gone. Pistons are moving, cam

timing belt broke.
take the gray plastic cover off and inspect the belt... I bet it is broke.
You may beable to get away with replacing it since it was not running when it broke... but I doubt it...

Battery light came on a few days ago. Then it came back on then van just went dead, Nothing comes on now. It is a chrysler 2006 town and country van. I have noticed a loud noice coming from the serpine...

The battery charge light comes on when the alternator is not generating electricity therefore there is nothing recharging your battery so it goes dead. This could be because your alternator is worn out or a wire broke but it is more likely that the fanbelt broke and is not turning the alternator.

Battery light turned on. Lost power steering and AC.

You broke your serpatine belt. Needs replacing. It's a $50ish part and easy to do if you have a diagram under the hood of how the belt fits. But if it was "rattling" for a couple of weeks take it in for crying out loud. Let the mechanic look it over to make sure your lack of vechile care didn't destroy anything under the hood.....

My van won't start. The serpintine belt broke and I replaced it. It is installed correctly but the engine won't turn over. It trys to start but won't. Any suggestions?

How long did you run the engine after the belt broke? Does it sound like dead battery? The alternator quit when the belt broke, the car will run for maybe 20 mins without it, I would say you wore down the battery, get it charged back up and see what happens. There is nothing else that will make your car not start that is attached to the serpentine belt.

Car quit running while driving it wont start back up. it has fire,fuel pump on engine turns over i have 2 pieces broke in gear shifter area 1 i hold down lever it releases my key, on the right of shifter...

Buy yourself a new serpentine belt - its slipping on the alternator and the battery isn't getting enough charge.

If yours is an automatic the damage to the shifter may be preventing the car from starting - If the car thinks that it is in any gear other than P, it may not start.

Broken belt under hood

The belt is need to turn the alternator which is needed to charge the battery, after the battery starts the car the alternator charges the battery, if the belt is not present the alternater has no way to supply the power needed to recharge the battery. You will need to have the belt replaced.

I need to do serpatine belt on 96 ford taruaus 3.0

On the Inside of the Engine Compartment you will find the Routing Sticker for the Belt to Reinstall. Locate the Tensioner (Will look like a Pulley that has one Round Pulley Under the Belt and One larger Round Pulley Mounted Above that. In the Middle of the Large Pulley there is a Bolt. Get a Wratchet and Turn it. It will Lower the Pulley under the Belt and Loosen the Tension Off of the Belt. Remove the Belt. Follow the Diagram Under Hood to Reinstall.
