Belts tend to dry out with time causing all this noises. The best solution is replacement. Its better to change it than be stranded in the street.

How to tight the water pump


belts squeak or squeal if loose or worn . water pump bearings will give a low grumble like marbles in a drum. you cannot adjust a water pump only the belts to it. if the noise is a grumble then the fix is a new water pump unit.

Alternator belt diagram for isuzu bighorn


All above is Bull Sxxxt. Isuzu bighorn Alternator belt only drives water pump (fan) and alternator. Size of belt is 17x1000 and its a tight fit onto pulleys so it makes you think its wrong belt, but trust me its not. As if you get 17x1025 or 17x1050 belt you wont get it tight correctly due to not enough adustment on alternator. To change/adjust the belt very simple. Loosen 3 bolts (14mm socket) on power steering pump (its 2 belts that diving power steering and air con), loosen tensioner on p/s pump. Remove those 2 belt - to get access to alternator belt adjustment bolts. There are 2 bolts you will need to loosen One at the bottom of alternator (14mm socket and 25mm extension bar to get it easier) another one is 12mm on tensioner rail. Than adjust tension by screwing 12mm long bolt that mounted across the tensioner rail until you get tension correct. Correct tension is about 68kg. But i do it just to get it nicely tight without too much of sag. REMEMBER DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN the belt as you will crush berings on water pump or alternator.

I changed the alternator for y 2004 chevy suburban. now i can't get the belt tight. what do i need to do?


My guess would be that you do not have the belt routed correctly. There is a tensioner that should put the proper amount of pressure on the belt assuming this has one serpentine belt. Make sure all pulleys have the belt routed to them the proper way. It sounds simple I know, but looks dan be deceiving.

Need a fan belt changing diagram for an 86 olds cutless supreme


mcdevito75 here, I don:"t think there is a fan belt changeing diagram for your 86" you can order the new belts and mark them Water pump, alternator, power steering. as you order them. The power steering pump is the most difficult to loosen and tighten, you"ll also need a crowbar to hold the various units tight after you install the new belts as the belts can"t be too lose nor too tight. Best bet let your local shop change the belts they last a good while and you have the piece of mind all is adjusted correct.

Is ther a picture of the tension pully arm for my 2001 suzuki esteem that i can look at


The tensioner itself is not meant to be taken apart. If you do, it's one difficult job to put back together again! Assuming you just want to either remove or replace the belt, all you need is a long spanner or breaker bar (14mm I think) and turn the centre bolt of the tensioner in a clockwise direction. If you're re-fitting a belt, it's best to start with the spanner in a position where you have the biggest possible amount of movement available to turn the spanner clockwise. If you're removing a belt, you'll only need a small amount of clockwise movement, but may need a lot more in the anti-clockwise direction (once the belt is off, the pulley will go back a lot further). The tensioner only has a certain amount of movement and if if doesn't go back much further with the belt removed, you need a new (or shorter) belt.

79 firebird belt replaced that wraps around the compressor/clutch for a/c. A/c blows cold, first belt was too big, brand new second belt perfect size, and checked, but when driving, belt starts squeeling....


Your new belt wil have stretched a bit, and you should have enough adjustment to stop the squeek. I'm not 100% sure if there are tensioners on the belt, if so they may reqire greasing or to check out, spray the tensioners with releasing oil' leave for an hour and see if they have moved. They are plastic bushes that your belt would have gone round.

To quieten a belt that squeeks, get some talcum powder, and when the engine is running spray it over the groove in the belt, it may be that's all it needs beccause there is a small bit of contamination on the belt, this wil soak uo any gunk and make your car quiet again. Let me know, regards, dave

Why does the serpenteen belt come off when i drive through water


This is one of theose questions that I had to research over and over again for the same problem I had. I had a 1998 voyager and a 1998 caravan ,same van right? The voyagers belts would always come off when I hit a puddle of water hard enough or a fair amount of snow. The caravan was fine never had a problem. What I found out by researhing the problem is that the bottom crank wheel is the problem. For some reason they used two different types for the caravan and voyager. the crank wheel on the caravan actually has deeper grooves on it so the belt does not slip off the wheel as easy. I had to replace the wheel with one from a caravan and it fixed the problem. Another solution is to make sure the plastic housing on the bottom of the engine (splash guard) is intact and is tight to keep the water out. If you have a spot where the water can spray up and hit the belt on the bottom wheel seal it so it cannot hit it anymore. Make sure your belt is tight with the correct amount of play and replace the tentioner if needed.

Best of luck
