Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. You will probably need to change the pulley. You need to make sure the belt is not to tight first. If it is, it can cause the pulleys to rub and smoke. Make sure the belt is not torn or ripped. What all is going on?

I just installed a power Steering pump and pulley. On my 1994 Chevrolet blazer . The belt is squeaking and smoking what's wrong?

Hi,for the belt to be squeaking and smoking the belt must be slipping,check all pullys spine freely if ok then check tension and if still smoking and sqeaking relace belt.

Will an idler pulley cause the car to smoke and leak coolant or oil

Not likely. Idler pulleys are only for routing of the serpentine belt. If one of your "pulleys" is leaking coolant its likely the water pump, which also has a pulley on it. The smoke is probably leaking coolant burning off a hot part of the engine or exhaust system.

Smoking and burning rubber smell coming from around right rear tire

ok jack up the right rear tire look at the inside ot the tire as you slowly rotate the tire also look for any signs that something is rubbing against the tire. if you must remove the tire and check to see if the spring in the strut is broken and rubbing against the tire. I ran into this problem before and the spring in the strut was broke shifted against the tire and caused it to rub the tire causing smoke. let me know we will keep trying to find the cause

What would cause the belt to shred

A locked pulley. Check to make sure they all turn free before you replace the belt.

Ford f25 1991 the heater belt starts smoking when turn on. We do not use the air conditioner

I would take off the belt and check each pulley for free movement when the car is off. For example, if there is an air pump, it should turn freely. Or, if the alternator pulley is disconnected from the belt, it should turn relatively freely.
