Question about 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

The idler pulley does not line up with the serp belt... I haven't seen my sister's car...but I'm guessing that its the wrong pulley or it is missing a spacer so that it will not line up correctly...

I've seen this problem personally on a camero and plenty of other vehicles. The idler pulley or tentionor is usually the pulleys that go out first. The thing that will happen is that the pully it self will bend or lossen up after wear and tear use. Just replace the pulley it does not line up with, I am confident that will fix you'r problem.

Hope This Helps!

Why does my water pump belt on my 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara keep shredding


You may have a pulley out of alignment or a bearing that is bad on one device or the idler or tensioner pulley.

2008 holden captiva diesel drive belt diagram can you supply please. I has developed the terrible noise from the serp belt which jumps around under 1100rpm


jumps,
well that is slipping belt
or tensioned wrong. (if not autotensioner type)
or one accessory is partially seizing.

this is usa forum.and we dont have Holdens here.
so good luck with finding facts in USA>
i wonder how many NZ read here. not seen many.

so one serp belt. and its new. and how many loads are there.
(accessories) a/c bypassed off belt.

there are 3 tensionors used on call cars.
1: just a mech, you set he tension with gauge. (& rock over accessories, like PS pump via its threaded shaft)
2: spring loaded auto tensioner. (fixed no adjustments)
3: or same as #2 but must be loaded up (by you per FSM book)
i cant guess which it is.

let me explain #1 my 4.0L jeep is fixed #1
i set the tension to 100 lbs per the FSm with my spec. gauge.
if loose it slips if set too tight it wrecks the belt and bearing on loop.
see?
we need to know what there exactly.
even photos win, they are worth 1000 words we are told.
seems so..

2005 dodge stratus r/t tensioner pulley and belt issue


ARE YOU POSITIVE THE SERP BELT IS NOT SLIPPING OFF THE CRANK PULLEY? I USE A STRIP OF DUCT TAPE TO HOLD IT ON THE PULLEY AS I FEED THE REST AROUND.

YOU SHOULD END UP WITH THE BELT TIGHT AND MUST THEN (USING A SERPENTINE IDLER PULLEY TOOL) RELEASE TENSION IN ORDER TO GET IT OVER THE CLOSEST, MOST CONVENIENT PULLEY...THEN RELEASE TOOL TENSION AND BELT SHOULD BE ON.
***FEEL FOR PROPER TENSION ON IDLER PULLEY (SERP BELT) IT MAY BE SHOT

Engine squeek


Check your idler pulley(s) & serp. belt, alternator & lastly your timing belt idler. Squeeks generally signal impending bearing failure. With the engine running, turn on your lights: if it goes away or gets worse, most likely its the alternator. If it stays, could be the serp. idler. Using a long screwdriver, press the tip against the alternator frame and idler support and press your ear to the other end. Its crude, but it does work...should be able to get closer to the source. If you need to replace parts, start with the idler & serp. belt, then alternator (you might be able to have it rebuilt for a fraction of the cost) and lastly timing belt & idler.
Good luck.

Serp. belt off alignment


Did you replace the belt? You mentioned the pulleys, but not the belt. If the belt is new, check the grooves on the pulley that appears to be a problem and make sure there is no residue stuck in the grooves. Also, make sure you can't wiggle the pulley that is giving the problem. It is possible for a belt to cause some damage when it comes apart.
