What is a good belt size to use to bypass the a.c. pulley in a 2007 Ford Taurus V6 3.0

it will be pretty much hit and miss to get the right bely
you can get an estimate of the belt length by measuring the distance between where the existing belt contacts the power steering and crank pulley
make a note of that length (A)
now using a tape measure measure from the contact point on the crank pulley around the ac pulley to the contact point on the power steering pulley
make a note of that length (B)
now take A from B and reduce the original belt length by that amount
example -- if the original belt is 1485 mm long and the difference is 145 mm then you would be looking at a new belt length of 1340 mm
well that is the general idea
personally replacing the ac compressor is a far better idea , even if you do not re-gas the system or replacing the ac pulley bearing --cheaper still

Ac quit working right after speedometer quit working around 60 mph. the rpms after i got off the interstate started to jump and my steering wheel seemed hard to turn

Hello, The reason why it was hard to steer was the engine wasn't running. The rpm, seedo, air condition, power steering does work if the engine has died. First check to see the belts are on the pulley and rolls in the engine carpment. If they are on and not broken then you other problem.

Will you car start, if doesn't. You could have run out of fuel?. Power steer pressure valve is faulty, broke a timing belt, run out of oil and the engine quit working. Engine got hot and stopped.

If it not starting, call a wrecker have them take to a garage of your choice. GB...stewbison

I think i broke a belt now ac wont work and the truck is starting to shake and check engine light came on I am trying to find out what it might be 2001 Toyota Tacoma

is the battery light coming on and/or no power steering?? thats a broken belt. pop the hood and look down between the radiator and the engine. there should be one or two black rubber belts around the crank, ac, ps, alternator pulleys. if youre missing a belt you need to get a new one. check the pulleys to see how many belts there should be. there

Is there a power steering belt that could have broke if everything was working fine and just all of a sudden had no power steering?

well you could open the hood and look. a broken belt usually makes quite a flopping racket when it goes. today's cars usually have a serpentine belt which runs the power steering, the alternator, and the air conditioning pump so when the belt breaks you hear the noise, the steering gets hard, and the alternator light comes on. a few cars however have separate belts. open the hood and take a look. will look like a black belt laying in there.

Battery light turned on. Lost power steering and AC.

You broke your serpatine belt. Needs replacing. It's a $50ish part and easy to do if you have a diagram under the hood of how the belt fits. But if it was "rattling" for a couple of weeks take it in for crying out loud. Let the mechanic look it over to make sure your lack of vechile care didn't destroy anything under the hood.....

I heard a clunk from the front passanger side when making a right hand turn. the brake light and battery light came on. i noticed i lost half power on all electric. i looked under the hood and the alt belt...

Something siezed and stopped turning, this frayed your belt. Question is what was it, probably your tensioner which is when the belt is loose now. It probably sieze, melted a bit and broke off. Have a look at the route the belt travels to see if there is a place where something might go or is missing. Things like your power steering pump, alternator, AC pump should all spin freely and make sure the pulleys are there. Here's an idea to find out in 30 min. Go to a grocery store and find someone with your exact car. Wait for them and then say hey can I just compare something under your hood I don't know where this thing goes on mine. Compare and you'll see whats missing. My moneys on a tensioner. I can find you a pic of it or diagram if you tell me the engine size. Cheers bro.

AC died, a belt is broken, now no tachometer or power

It probably ran the alternator too and without it the battery ran down so the engine went dead without any power.

Lost power steering and brakes

I'd say you broke a serpintine belt if you lost them both at the same time. Check your belts and see if you're missing one... You should have breaks and steering, just manual... hard to steer and brake...
