Can i bypass the ac compressor on my 2003 dodge 3500 5.9 Cummins


You can buy a free wheeling pulley and bracket assembly, it's called an AC Delete Pulley, I believe. Unbolt and throw away the AC compressor, mount the pulley bracket in the holes left there, and put back on the serpentine belt. Make sure it's the right pulley design, there are many applications by aftermarket suppliers.

1996 grand prix 3.4L ac compressor- 2 different ones- which one?


There are two models and they are not even close to being the same looks. The model was redisgned in mid production. The first model had the 4 oclock mounting the second had a 2 oclock mounting. http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/search/A!s!C+Compressor/02645/C0354.oap?year=1996&make=Pontiac&model=Grand%2BPrix&vi=1255979

Replace belt tensioner pullys


Check to make sure all pulleys and brackets are tight. Look for wear and tension on belts. Look for alignment to make sure they haven't shifted out of intended location. Take the belt off and spin by hand all of the pulleys, pwr steering, alternator, A/C, water pump, tensioner and make sure none of them are defective.

The tensioner pully bracket broke to the alt/pwr steering belt. it made of cast aluminum. is this a replaceabe part? if not can it be welded? or fixed at all?


Yes it is a replaceable part. Just get the whole tensioner pulley assembly from the junkyard, its held on by 3 bolts and bolts into the timing cover.

Steering wheel stiff when turning right or left on a 2002 camray le. There is sufficient fluid for the pwr steering. I assume it's something else.


definitely check ur belt condition and tightness..very important.. also wiggle or pry on pwr steering pump pulley to make sure ur shaft hasnt broken .not hard but few wiggles w long prybar should do it. very possible u have a bad pwr steering pump. no pressure in system, or very old burnt out unflushed fluid,dirty fluid.not common.

Timing chain is loose how do I replace or tighten


You need to pull out the timing cover. 4-6 hours of work. Here is the step to remove the Cover, then you need to remove the Sprockets.
moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.png
  1. Remove the oil pan.
  2. Remove the power steering belt if so equipped.
  3. Remove the air conditioning belt, compressor and bracket if so equipped.
  4. Remove the fan clutch (fluid coupling), with the fan and water pump pulley.
  5. Matchmark and remove the crankshaft pulley(s). This bolt will be very tight. Use the counter-holding bar, properly installed, to hold the crankshaft while loosening the bolt. Use the pulley extractor or gear puller to remove the pulley from the shaft.
  6. Remove the water bypass pipe.
  7. Remove the fan belt adjusting bar. If necessary, remove the lower power steering bracket for access.
  8. Disconnect the heater water outlet pipe.
  9. Unbolt the timing chain cover assembly. Be careful to loosen only the correct bolts.

To install:
  1. Install new gaskets over the dowels on the timing chain cover. Slide the cover assembly over the dowels and pump spline. Insert the retaining bolts and tighten them. Tighten the 8mm bolts to 9 ft. lbs. (13 Nm) and the 10mm bolts to 29 ft. lbs. (39 Nm).
  2. Temporarily install the adjusting bar to the alternator. Install the adjusting bar to the chain cover and tighten the bolts to 9 ft. lbs. (13 Nm).
  3. Install the heater water outlet pipe.
  4. Install the water bypass pipe.
  5. Install the crankshaft pulley and bolt. Use the counter-holding tool to hold the pulley and tighten the bolt to 116 ft. lbs. (157 Nm). If equipped with air conditioning, install the second crankshaft pulley.
  6. Install the water pump pulley and fluid coupling with the fan.
  7. Adjust the tension on the drive belts.
  8. Install the air conditioning compressor bracket, compressor and belt if they were removed.
  9. Install the power steering belt and adjust it.
  10. Attach the oil pan.
  11. Install the radiator.

How to bypass the A/C clutch-compressor and drive the power steer


It can be done. But, its alot of work and you will need a new bracket for the PS pump. As bad as it sounds, it will be much easier and cheaper if you just replace the AC clutch or compressor. Try to find a used one at a junckyard. Its a very silly design.

Needing to remove ac compressor to install ac bypass pulley


There are a couple of ways to approach this. I just did one of these for a friend. The A/C pump seized while running. The serpentine belt broke. Crazy things can happen to other components when this occurs. In this case the broken ends of the belt, I think, whipped back around on itself on the crankshaft pulley and one of the other pulleys in the belt circuit and devastation occurred. 1) It snapped the power steering pump bracket in two. 2) It took out the alternator. 3) And not to be left out, GOODBYE cool blowin air conditioning. Time to decide what to do. He had to order the power steering bracket from a dealer (junk yards were cleaned out). He decided to replace the power steering pump with a remanufactured unit and new hoses (parts houses are much cheaper than dealer parts folks). You'll need a pulley remover that you can usually borrow (with a deposit) from some parts houses. He HAD to buy the alternato ya gotta have juice. I have been using the name, "parts houses" . (Can we use specific company names in this forum MR./MS. Editors ? I Feel I need to for the sake of all of us that come here for correct information.) THE ANSWER : DO you want to drop the bucks into fixing your A/C ? NO ? It can be involved and costly depending on how good of a do it yourselfer you are. New pumps are spendy. Then, if you use the older refridgerant you'll need a conversion kit and blah blah blah. YOU have opted for a bypass pulley. COOL ! Errrr...not actually. It's coming out. The bolts that hold the A/C pump to its bracket come out from BEHIND the bottom of the unit. They are long and won't clear the intake manifold,at least not easily. Take the bracket bolts out from the front. Take the hose from the pump to the dryer apart (at the dryer). Do you want to preserve the system for future repair? If so, cover that connection on the dryer to protect it from the world. With a sharp blade, cut the other hose coming off the pump right behind the grill. Or, try to take the fitting apart at the evaporator. Cutting it is easier. Plug the cut off end if ya want. Future repair thing. Rotate the pump forward so you can either take the bolts out,or remove the pump and bracket as a unit, with the lengths of hose attatched to the pump. This gets all that hose you no longer need out of the engine compartment. NOW THE BYPASS PULLEY. He found a pulley from NAPA. IT DOES NOT WORK ! YOU DO NOT NEED IT ! Nothing against NAPA. I have bought good parts from them before. Maybe their supplier does not know. The pulley is supposed to drop into the A/C bracket in the concave recess that the pump once occupied. IT WASN'T EVEN CLOSE. Chevy released THREE versions: Poor Boy-no power steering,no A/C. MIDMan-power steering,no A/C. Rich Guy-power steering,with A/C. SO....... If you have power steering, the A/C pump removal just put you into Midman status. Stop at your local chevy dealer, ask them to print you a belt routing diagram from the computer parts book. It shows all three versions. Go to your local,,,,,,,"PARTS HOUSE", tell them info...year,make,engine size, REMEMBER.. IT NO LONGER HAS AIR CONDITIONING. YOU'LL GET A SHORTER BELT !! IF, they sold you the bypass pulley.....GET YOUR MONEY BACK !!! Use the diagram you got. The belt is routed a little different since you lost the A/C pump and the idler pulley with it's bracket(that you can keep for future repair or trade in for to be made into beer cans) Also remember that without a belt on, the tensioner pulley is swung over to the end of it,s range of motion. When you get the belt routed correctly you have to put a wrench on the bolt on the pulley and turn hard to compress the spring. (COUNTERCLOCKWISE) The bolt is left hand thread so it won't come loose while ya reef on it to get the belt swung onto the ALTERNATOR LAST.<<<<<<GOOD LUCK !!! ADDED NOTE: Would that bypass pulley work on say...an "88" or "89" or "90" ? > I DO NOT KNOW. DID CHEVY change the size of the pump bracket after 87 ? We will be letting the good folks at NAPA know what we ran into and how we fixed it. We also will ask for a refund on the wrong part for the job. IT DOES NOT FIT AN 87! WE DO KNOW THIS..... IF the belt had just broke in half and safely dropped away, then all those parts wouldn't have been needed and the cost of the fix is FOR A SHORTER BELT and a little sweat to remove the A/C pump and bracket. The A/C NEVER WORKED ANYWAY
