sounds like your timing belt may have slipped or snapped a ceased timing belt adjuster could cause this check your timing belt and adjuster and all belt adjustment pulleys before you fix the valves otherwise its bound to happen againalso make sure your engine oil is full

How to change serpentine belt on 2006 buick lacrosse

Start by drawing a diagram of the belt routing. Serpentine belts normaly have 1 spring loaded tensioner (1 pully will have a nut or 3/8 or 1/2 inch drive hole) That will be the tensioner. get spanner or ratchet to fit & lever the tensioner away from the belt. Remove belt. fit new belt to most pullys except the easiest to get to, lever the tenioner back & fit the belt to the last pully, Check the belt is on all pullys properly & your done

Want to fit fan belt cant find the proper way

You have to find the tension pully. using a 3/8 socket wrench. not the socke but the actual wrench. place the square end of the wrench into the notch on the pully and either push or pull (depends on the v-belt system) and it should move. place your v-belt around the pully's according to the diagram under your hood leaving your tension pully to be the last one the belt goes on. Move that tension pully as mentioned above and place it the belt on the pully. The diagram under the hood should also show you where that tension pully is located.

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.

Replacing the serpentine belt

Theres not an easy way, i just had to do this on my ZX2. just put a 13mm socket on the tensioner pully, pull down on it to get it to release, remove belt, and then try to place the belt all around everything but the a/c compresser, then pull back down on the tensioner and wrap the belt around the a/c compresser since its right there on the bottom where you are pulling, so you can use one hand on the tensioner and the other to put the final loop around the compressor, if this doesn't work for you, try to wrap it all but around one of the other pulleys. Mine didn't have a diagram, heres one that i made in paintbrush to help you.
