Toyota corrollareg 2000 1332 liftback has 39000 miles only do not know if it is belt or chain does it need changing

I would say no and most likely it is a rubber belt...and most cars now can go over 100,000 miles not a problem but it depends on the driving style jack rabbit driving may need quicker attention of 50,000 miles or so.. but check your owners manual and you know your driving style...good luck.

2000 dodge caravan ps pump went out can i drive it?

I would not advise it, your serpentine belt runs all of your accessories, if your pump locks up it will burn your belt up and then you are stranded.

How many years or miles should a timing belt be changed on a 2000 V8 Tundra ?

Replace the timing belt at 90,000 miles or 10 years. Considering it is already 11 years old, replace it now. Warning: This is an interference engine. If the belt breaks you will have serious internal engine damage. The water pump is also driven by the cam belt so it is advisable to replace it at the same time you replace the cam belt in order to save labor cost later on when the pump fails. The pump will not last 180,000 miles so replace it now.

Maytag Neptue frontloading washing machine model MAH5500BWW stopped spinning (machine is about 15 years old). I opened up the back and saw the drive belt was thrown. Reinstalled it (perhaps badly) and...

i would say you have a warped main pulley, run the machine in spin,watch it early to detect any wobling in the belt should be no sideway movement. also check main pulley is tight with no lateral wobling.

A technician stated my alternator belt has a slight long can I continue to drive with the crack

Nobody can tell when that alternator belt will snap, but the crack means its time to change it.
For precautionary and preventive maintenance purposes, the mechanic just advises you to change that belt before it will snap in the middle of nowhere.
If I were you I will follow the advise!
Hope that clears all the doubts!
Thank you for using Fixya!

My Maytag washer is about 15 years old. Suddenly

Without a model number, but with the age, I can only assume that this is a Dependable Drive wash system.

This system utilizes a drive belt and a pump belt and it is recommended they be replaced together after every13 years of normal use. They are very simple to install with no teardown or tools needed. The belts have installation instructions printed on the package.

1. Drive Belt

2. Pump Belt

The pump belt must be adjusted to the tension requirements written on the package. See link below.

3. Parts breakdown/disassembly procedures.

Other issues could also cause the same symptoms but the belts at this age is the 1st suspect.

Very loud spin cycle

The link below, courtesy of, shows that the rear bearing comes with the outer tub only and is very pricey! I have been unable to find a service agency that offers just the bearing. Very aggravating. would be a good place to define your issue.

Belt Tension

If you are sure the belt is slipping, you need to replace the belt. Mine was making a growling noise that sounded like it might have been a slipping belt but it turned out to be a motor drive problem. I fixed mine with a motor/control board kit (ebay) for $155.00. However, there was a note with the kit that indicated that the symptom on that particular model might have been simply a bad cable connection at the motor end of the cable. The wire lugs are crimped-on in the motor connector and could work loose - the motor jumps around quite a lot during spin start-up...
