Why does my 2001 mitsubishi montero sport keeps breaking my ac belt

Misalignment, wrong size belt, something is in contact with the belt and causing premature wear. A pulley may be seizing up within the belts route. Or cheap belts, but that usually isn't one of the answers.

Just need to know were the water pump on montero sport 1998 3.0 Ls engine????

It's under the timing cover on the front of the engine. I have pasted instructions to replace the water pump below.

3.0L & 3.5L Engines

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. If necessary, properly release the fuel pressure.
  3. Drain the cooling system.
  4. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Negative battery cable
CAUTION Wait at least 90 seconds after the negative battery cable is disconnected to prevent possible deployment of the air bag.

Upper radiator shroud Accessory belts Air conditioning compressor tensioner pulley, if equipped Cooling fan and clutch assembly and the water pump pulley Thermostat and housing on 3.0L, 3.5L engines Water outlet, gasket and houses Radiator hoses from the water pump Crankshaft pulley(s) Timing belt covers. If the same timing belt will be reused, mark the direction of the timing belt's rotation, for installation in the same direction. Be sure the engine is positioned so the No. 1 cylinder is at the TDC of its compression stroke and the sprockets timing marks are aligned with the engine's timing mark indicators. Timing belt Water pump bolts are different lengths, note their positions before removing. Water pump from the block Water pipe connection and O-ring

To install:
  1. Clean and dry the mating surfaces of the block and water pump
  2. Install or connect the following:

    New O-ring on the water pipe connection, wet the new O-ring with water to aid in installation Water pump, with a new gasket, Torque the bolts to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm) on 3.0L and 3.5L engines Alternator bracket bolt to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm) Timing belt(s) and covers Crankshaft pulley(s) Thermostat and housing on 3.0L, 3.5L engines. Torque the bolts to 12-14 ft. lbs. (17-20 Nm). Radiator hose to the water pump Water outlet, new gasket and houses. Torque the bolts to 12-14 ft. lbs. (17-20 Nm). Water pump pulley Cooling fan and clutch assembly Air conditioning compressor tensioner pulley, if equipped Accessory belts Upper radiator shroud Thermostat and housing on 3.0L, 3.5L engines Negative battery cable
  3. Refill the radiator with coolant. This cooling system has a self-bleeding thermostat, so system bleeding is not required.
  4. Run the vehicle until the thermostat opens and fill the overflow tank. Check for leaks.
  5. Once the vehicle has cooled, recheck the coolant level.

How to change an alternator belt on a 1998 montero

Please confirm to me but I believe the alternator is driven with the serpintine belt. If this is the case there is an idler/tension pulley that would need to be first loosened (I believe it is a 14MM) then at the top of the bracket where this pulley is mounted there is a bolt that you rotate to either loosen or tighten the belt (by turning this bolt you either raise or lower the pulley.
I hope this may have helped,

Upon accelerating, there is a chirping sound coming from the belt area of the engine. I read that a common problem with this truck is the crankcase pulley bolt loosening and eventually falling off causing...

the chirping noise you hear are the belts being loose,adjust the tension on the belts,if the pulley bolt has not loosened up by now ,you dont have a bolt problem-when you have the timing belt replaced ,have the mechanic put some lock-tite on the bolt
