I can't get the tensioner into the right spot.The belt seems too short but only by like an inch. It is a 40 inch belt

if its the right belt, the tensioner is spring loaded so turn/twist it to the full and it will fit. DONT APPLY OIL BY ANY MEANS.

If you pour Antifreeze into the radiator it comes right back out and now car wont start. the leak is coming from bottom of engine near oil pan and i was told it was a freeze plug. If it is the freeze...

As far as I know losing the freeze plug should not stop the engine cranking, unless you have run it without coolant and it has overheated so much that the engine has seized.(I am assuming that by cranking you mean turning the engine over) It is also possible that the head gasket is damaged but it would be almost impossible for it to be so badly damaged that it would prevent cranking! (but believable that it could prevent starting) I am not aware of a sensor that detects no coolant whatsoever and cuts power to the starter, but then again I don't know the model intimately.Can you remove the plugs and see if you can turn the crankshaft pulley with a wrench (or spanner as we call it in the UK). That should tell you if the engine is seized.
Hope that helps

How to install 350 chevy frame mounts in a 1985 chevy impala

The 1985 Impala came standard with the Chevrolet 305 V8. All Chevrolet small block V8's from 265 cubic inches to 400 cubic inches from 1957 to about 1989 used the same block with almost no difference in the castings, so the motor mounts should fit from one block to the next. If you are trying to swap in a 350 newer than 1989, then the motor mounts are different, and you will have to have them fabricated by a local welder, machine shop, or perhaps the best, a local short-track race car driver/builder. Those guys can build anything.

2004 Chevy Impala 3.8L

In a word no, but if you have a really long screwdriver, you can sometimes stick it down and pry against the block and pop front of the boot back off the plug. This works for the front bank, at the back you just have to reach down and try to twist the shield and boot back and forth while keeping firm pulling pressure on it. It seems impossible but they will pop off.

Happy New Year,

I have a 2002 Chevy Venture and I am trying to change the back 3 plugs from under the car. I cant get the wire's off they are like glued on. I there a special tool out there.

no, what i do is i use a razor knife and i cut the boot at the plug then twist and use a screw driver to open the boot, those wire are so hard to remove your right its like there glued in but there not its just from the heat, cut the boot this way it releases away from the plug then pull it off.

Freeze plug

Hello, yes over time freeze plugs can corrode over time and start to leak, I am currently building up a motor right now and when I removed the frost plugs they were starting to get thin from corrosion.
