This has got nothing to do with any problem with your engine but the belt must be replaced immediately before it can have a break down.

Dodge ram pulley


That is not right! No OEM pulley ever needs to be moved. There are engineers that figure out where those pulleys need to be. The problem is most likely that a unit the belt drives is out of alignment or is wearing badly. Get a new mechanic.

SURPENTINE BELT SHREDS


I think the crankshaft harmonic balancer pulley is coming apart and causing the belt to walk off and shred, it is the common reason.

I would look online for a diagram on how the belt is to be run around the pulleys to make sure you are running it correctly , let me asked you this is this what it did to the original belt if not it is not run correctly over the pulleys ?

I just changed my serpentine belt on my 2002 Buick LeSabre. (The old one split in half). Everything seems to be lined up properly but when I started the car to check the alignment, I heard a loud...


remove the belt and check all the pulleys that the belt drives. sound as if one of the bearings in the pulley is seized making the belt squeal and smoke.

I have a 1999 Mercury Sable. The only problem I have had with the car is the serpentine belt. It started 3 months ago . . . the engine was overheating and the belt was shredding. I bought a belt tensioner...


take the belt off and carefully check to see if any of the pulleys are out of line and check to make sure they spin smooth and true check for bearing wear and noise in any of the pulleys cause it sounds like simply there is a pulley out of line

is the a/c working ok??? shredding the belt may be cause by the a/c compressor problems. the "chunk" maybe not, but shredding tells me something does not spin when it should. I dont know why the mehanic put a new pump on that had a problem with the pulley, it should be smooth. anyhting that the belt runs should be smooth and east to turn, make sure that all of the grooves are clean, no remnants of the old belt.

2003 v6 dakota serpentine belt shreds


I'd be more inclined to check that idler pulleys and alternator bearings are okay before looking at crank pulley. Take off the belt and give them a good wiggle and spin.

Ford 302 in E-150 is turning all drive belts into dental floss


Here are a few choices. If equipped with A/C the air could ice up the compressor and stop the a/c clutch, shredding a belt. Width of belt pulley, if narrow pulley has fat belts and fat pulley has narrow belts, then possible to shred. Has anyone cranked down the damper on the crankshaft? If the bolt comes loose or the woodruff key is worn you could get a wobble from the crank.
