Question about 1990 Chevrolet K1500
Need a diagram for changing a serpentine belt
There should be a factory diagram on the top of the original radiator shroud. This will show the belt routing. The easiest way to change the belt is to use a 5/8 socket on the pulley bolt on the tension wheel, attach a breaker bar or ratchet, stand on the passenger side and pull the handle to you. If you need more leverage, I like to put a large box end wrench on the handle, it works and is easier to find than a small cheater pipe. You can easily lever the tension pulley up to release the belt tension. You will need an extra pair of hands to pull the old belt out and place the new belt, following the routing guide.

See Figures 11, 12 and 13
The accessory drive belt for 2.0L engines has no provision for manual belt adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner.
Movement of the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension.
The belt tensioner has a belt length indicator. If the indicator marks are not between the MIN and MAX marks, the belt must be replaced.

SOURCE: serpentine belt diagram:
The belt routing diagram is located on the top radiator cross member by the hood latch. You should see it when you open the hood. If it is not there, all Chrysler, Dodge, and Plymouth minivans, from 1993 to at least 1999, used the same 3.3L engine setup, so find someone with one and look for the diagram where I described.
