My serpentine belt fell off and i noticed a bolt that has backed out which caused the belt to come off what do i do to keep the belt from falling off again

Most common cause of belt loss is either a bad tensioner pulley or a bad idler pulley. I had a van with the same issue and after the mechanic replaced them along with the belt, no more problems. Could also be a bad device that is driven by the belt like an airconditioner compressor.

I have a howling sound when i start my car. open the hood sound likes its coming from where the belt is. is it time to change

depends on which belt... quick check is to buy a smal spray can of ''belt dressing'' at a auto parts store.... if after spraying the belts it continues, it can be a bad belt tensioning device, or bad / worn vbelts, or maybe a water pump bearing. if it is the belt to the alternator, it could be a bad bearing in the alternator, ac compressor, or even the power steering belt, tension device... a lot of variables....

My engine upon starting squeals and gets louder when i accelerate, every once in s blue moon it will stop for a few mins or quiet down????? help

There are only 4 things that will cause a belt to squeal.
1. A bad/worn-out belt
2. A bad or misaligned pully or pulley bearing
3. A bad belt tensioner. (pulley, arm, pivot, or spring)
4. Malfunctioning or bad component (alternator, power steering pump, A/C compressor, etc.)

Remove the belt and check ALL pullies to make sure that they rotate smoothly and do not have any horizontal play in them (indicating worn-out bearings). Make sure that the tensioner pully swings freely and does not bind in its travel at any point and that it is properly aligned with the other pullies. A good way to check for proper alignment is to look at the belt position on the pullies with the engine running. If the belt is running on the edge of the pullies instead of in the center, it is usually caused by a bad belt tensioner or a bad bearing on one of the other pullies.

Check the belt for chunks missing, torn or cracked ribs or shiny "glazed" edges, ribs, or back.

Washing machine wont will wash but wont do anything else

Hello,Sounds like you have a broken belt or a bad motor. The easiest way to tell if the belt is bad is to reach inside the drum and turn it. If it turns very easily, you probably have a bad belt or something has caused the belt to jump off, such a s a loose pulley or bad bearing. If it feels like there is a good amount of resistance, or a kind of "winding up" noise, then the belt is still on and you likely have a bad motor. Also, you could just scoot the machine out, unplug it, and remove the back cover a look inside to see if the belt is still on the pulleys.

Make sure the belt is the correct length for your vehicle.. match to old one if possible. Double check belt routing to make sure its correct. Check for proper tension on the belt as well, common for tensioner pulleys to go bad after a belt replacement because of the excessive pressure used to release old belt. Hope this helps.
