Need serp. belt diagram for a 2000 ford escort zx2 dohc

If your diagram is missing from under the hood, I can give you a few tips that may help get your belt installed. (1) The belt will wrap almost completely around each pulley, no pulley will be wrapped less than 2/3 of the way around. (2) The ribbed side of the belt rides in the grooves of the pulleys, and (3) The flat side or back side of the belt wraps around the smooth pulley or pulleys. Usually at least the belt tensioner pulley is smooth and runs on the backside of the belt. You may want to start at the crankshaft pulley by determining which pulley on either side of the belt will provide the most wrap around the crankshaft pulley.Hope this gets you on the road.

I have a 92 chevy geo prizm but i can't find a diagram to change the serpentine belt

If you've lost the sticker under the hood and there is no diagram in the owner's manual, you can find it in a Haynes or Chilton's manual for your vehicle. It may even be printed on the wrapper for your new belt. Most auto parts stores also have a copy of the diagram.

If you're stuck out in the boonies, the old belt is already off, and don't have any of this information, you'll have to work it out. Start by noting the grooved side of the belt is on the inside. The crankshaft pulley on the bottom is generally grooved. Look for the next pulley in line to the upper left from the crank pulley. It is probably smooth, so the belt goes around it counter-clockwise from right to left (smooth side). Next should be a grooved pulley, so the belt would wrap around the outside in the clockwise direction. Continue working your way around in this manner until you get back to the crankshaft pulley. The rule is "clockwise is groovy." Make sure you pick up all of the pulleys. As a check on your work, verify that the belt tensioner would pull the belt tighter when installed according to your diagram. You most likely have two or even three grooved pulleys in a row at or near the top - this will be a straight shot with no wrap around a smooth pulley.

The belt tensioner is generally a smooth pulley and is often the first one off the crankshaft pulley going clockwise. The A/C clutch, power steering and alternator are generally grooved. The water pump may be either one and is often the last one going back to the crankshaft pulley. It is rare to have two smooth pulleys in a row. The belt is never arranged so it contacts itself on a full wrap. If the belt is very loose when it's engaged on the tensioner, and the tensioner spring isn't broken, you'll have to rework your tentative diagram - the belt may go across the pulleys in a different order.

The most difficult part aside from working out the proper belt wrapping is loosening the belt tensioner so you can get the belt on. Some vehicles require a breaker bar and socket on the tensioner center bolt (there's no room for a ratchet). Others have a slot in the side of the tensioner where you can insert a large screwdriver to pull against the tensioner.

Belt came off and wrapped around the crankshaft pully then would not start.....seems like timing had changed....won't fire....would it be a sensor behind the pully? and are they adjustable?

The sensors are not usually adjustable, it looks like the timing belt has jumped a tooth or two, fit new timing belt to orinigal marks on engine, hopefully there is no damage done to the engine you will know when you try to start the motor.

first jack up the right front tire side of your car and remove cover under your car motor, so you can see your pulleys from underneath your car, remove black cover where your timing chain belt is thats on the top center between alternator and powersteering pulleys, ok,looking at all your pulleys from your right side of your front end, starting from your top left is your alternator pulley,put belt on it and go underneath the motor mount to your right top powersteering pulley,then go down around the bottom right ac pulley,then to your left bottom crankshaft pulley,the back side of the belt thats on your top alternator pulley wraps around the soft edge pulley thats above your center waterpump pulley,then wrap around the idler pulley that's under your top alternator pulley,then wrap the backside of your remaining belt around the tensioner pulley that's in on your right, under your top ac pulley, use a 13 mm wrench to adjust by turning towards the back of your car so you can slide the belt on

Serpintine belt routing 95 dodge spirit

moz-screenshot.jpgYou can find one at, you may have to sign up for a free account, but you can view the job diagram there. It looks like for a 6 cylinder, there are two belts, one goes from the crank pully around the water pump then the alternator, and the other goes around the crank shaft then the power steering pump and then the air compressor pully. The power steering and air is a "v" belt and the other is a ribbed serpentine belt. they both just wrap around no wierd routing. the only thing I do not see is the idler pully or tensioner pullys.

Belt inst

For the 3.0L Vulcan, you have a tensioner that is located just below the power steering pully. Use a 15mm wrench or the 15mm shallow well socket that comes in a Serpentine Belt tool to push the tensioner toward the rear of the engine compartment. Take the old belt off and route the new belt. The belt begins at the crankshaft pully, goes under and around the a/c compressor, up around the power steering pump, around (with the flat edge) the idler pully, around the alternator, the flat edge then sits against the tensioner and back around to the water pump pully. You should have a belt routing diagram on the underside of the hood just above the serpentine pully assembly.

Serpentine belt came off need to know how it goes back on

this is hard to exsplain without showing you a photo ,but i will try. first get the belt around the engine crankshaft which is the pully closest to the bottom and center of the engine. when standing in front of engine start to lead the belt to the right and connect to power steering pump then up to generator, next thare is going to be a smooth pully not groved like the others to the left,put the smooth side of the belt on bottom of this pully and continue left to the ac/compressor go around ac/compressor andstraight down to the belt tensioner , and then right over to the water pump which has a smooth pully not grooved. remember the smooth pullys will always carry the smooth side of the belt and the grooved pullys the grooved side of belt. the belt tensioner will half to be released by a serpantine belt tensioner tool sold at your local auto parts store. these instructions is for 3.8 liter engine, if you have a 4.6 liter engine it will be different, so repost stating that you have a 4.6 if this dont help
