Hi


You need to undo the passenger side motor mount in order to replace the belt. On the top cam shaft pulley; there is a little dot or arrow forged into the metal. On the bottom crankshaft pulley, there is also a similar mark. Make sure you align the belt cogs with the pulleys. There should also be a mark on the head and/or the block to align the marks with.


Also check the bellow links for a detailed instruction:-

I have a 88 Plymouth horizon was running fine And all of a sudden I turned the key on and nothing happened I changed the battery new ignition relay and still nothing can anyone tell where to find wiring...


Try holding key in start position while moving shifter slowly through all gears to see if you get a click or start at all. Safety neutral switch/back-up lights on transmission were known to cause that problem.

I have a 91 olds delta 88. Serpentine belt broke. fixed that. put a brand new battery in. it act like it wants to start but it wont. any ideas


Is it possible that your battery is weak due to the fact that you belt broke, and the alternator wasn't charging for some time. This probably would present itself by cranking over very slowly. Test your battery voltage and see if it reads 12.5 v -14.5v. I would like to know how long the car was driven with no belt. DId it have time to overheat?

I need a picture of a 1995 oldsmobile 88 royal 3800 serpentine belt diagram


there may be a white decal on the upper rad support that shows the belt routing if its still there.i`m assuming that the belt is off and you need to know how it goes back on,if not then draw the routing on a piece of paper or go to a parts store they may have the diagram there or go to a library and look for it in the auto books.

The timing belt just came off of my car last night on my 1994 oldsmobile 88 and i cant figure out how to put it back on need some help maybe send a diagram step by step would help


The 1994 Oldsmobile 88 does not have a cam/timing belt. It uses a chain so I am assuming you are talking about the serpentine belt. There should be a routing diagram of the serpentine belt under the hood somewhere. May be on the underside of the hood or on the radiator mount. Also can be found in your owner's manual. If the belt came of you need to find out why. Either the belt is worn out or the tensioner is defective or both. I would suggest you replace the belt for sure. Here is a diagram of the routing of the belt on your 1994 Olds 88 with 3.8 V6. clay58_18.png

Best to go to the GM site, and find the schematics. Armed with that knowledge, you can figure out which belts are needed for your 1985 Olds Detla 88.

The procedure is given in the Hayes manual. You need to turn the cam shaft gear so that the front valves (two valves close to the gear point up) are close and the notch on the cam shaft other end is horizonal (side facing the battery). You need to bring the flywheel (in bellhousing) to top dead center (you will see a notch on flywheel and a fixed pointer on the bellhousing. The notch should be in line with the ponter. After that, you need to bring the injection pump at certain pisition. Then you can mount the belt. It is not a difficult process, I have been doing it, but you need certain tools that will make it easy, such as cam lock position tool, injection pump lock pin, gear remover, etc.
