Possibly who ever replaced the water pump did not line up one of the pulleys or an idler correctly. If it is not spaced correctly the serpentine belt will not follow the grooves in the pulley. This will cause the belt to jump out of the grooves and jump track and rub on the pulley and shred it within a few minutes or seconds depending on how badly it is misaligned.Check the alignment on the pulleys and the routing path of the belt. Both must be correct in order to work properly.

No Space between the Belt at the Idler Pulley and the Water Pump Pulley. On a 4cyl without Air conditioning


check and make sure of the proper routing of the belt. If good check the idler tension spring, check the bearings in all the pulleys the belt runs over.

My chevy 2000 malibu is shredding through its serpintine belt ive replaced the tension pulley and the power steering pulley and bought and replaced a belt what else can be wrong one of the pulleys i think...


Yes that is very likely it. Since you changed the belt, you should know - Is it the tensioner pulley ? Otherwise it is probably the water pump. The problem is the bearings.. If the bearings are locking up, the resistance will shred the belt quickly.. the part needs to be replaced is the bearings. Waterpump bearings are built in to pump. Change whole thing. (may need to transfer the pulley)

How to adjust serpentine belt on 1991 jeep cherokee limited


you are incorrect. on a 91 jeep cherokee the belt is adjusted pivoting the power steering pump assembly. loosen the top bolt on the PS bracket, the 2 bolts on the back of it, and the bolt holding the adjustment bolt tight (the long bolt threaded into the bracket under the pump on the drivers side. turn the long bolt (adjustment bolt) to tighten or loosen the bolt.

You lost coolant and the water pump pulley is "wobbly". You'll need to replace the water pump because the same thing is going to happen when you replace the belt and *** coolant.

My jeep keeps shreding serpentine belt


Either the tensioner is defective and needs replacing, or the pulleys are out of alignment. I would suspect the tensioner pulley is bad. I am assuming you are installing the correct belt.

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

Ac makes noise after replacing the serpintine belt


Did you check your ac pulley before installing the belt? check for some play on your ac pulley. your ac pulley bearing must have been worn out and needs replacement.
