I was told the dealership was going to charge 2500 dollars for this repair. My friend did it himself in an hour. local machine shop can press bearing out and new one in. Worth checking into.

    It turned out to be the harmonic balancer...the supercharged 3800 is well known for the balancer mounting to wear out...:(

Can you bypass the a/c pulley putting on the serpentine belt on a 97 Buick regal 3800 supercharged


Contact your local NAPA auto parts store and ask if there is a by-pass pulley available for the AC on this model. If there is, you will be able to do it. If none available, you may have to replace the compressor

I have a 2000 pontiac grand prix gt 3800 v6 that is not supercharged.i got to get a new engine.will a supercharged 3800 v6 hook up to my none supercharged engine


The engines are the same dimensions and use the same mounts, but the wiring and sensors are a bit different and you need the computer and gauge cluster out of the supercharged car.

Engine makes whining sound


Take the belt off and spin all of the pulleys. the bad component should be obvious. high pitch whine is usually alternator bearing for the 98 3800 its timkin part# 100ccab or it can be the power steering pump(but the pitch will change as your steering if it is that) water pump, idler and tensioner pulleys(if you have to change either one, replace the tensioner itself). if you have the supercharged model there are a few parts that can whine( or the s/c is low on oil.)

If the pulley is bent or damaged replace it or belts will come off or get destroyed fairly fast. The Kent Moore tool number you have will not work on your application
