Should be a diagram on radiator core support,which is where the radiator bolts to, should be a diagram tag or when you open hood it may be on inside of hood look up when you open hood if its not on core support,should be on inside of hood.It will show exactly how the belt goes on

    Sorry just noticed you read the diagram and your saying its either to long or to short,heres a idea follow the diagram as it shows,in most cases it will seem that the belt is to short but the tension pulley is spring loaded you need to take the tension off the pulley and that should give the little extra you need to put belt completely on usually there is a spot for a breaker bar you insert the bar in the slot and lift up or in some cases push down that should take the tension off pulley and allow you to put belt on,

I had a similiar problem on my 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 Conversion Van. It ended up being a partial collapse of the catalytic converter which didn't allow adequate exhaust. The problem only showed itself because I could not get over 55 mph going up a small hill.

1500 Conversion Van AC stays on, van overheats. Pulled the AC clutch fan relay and it fixed the overheating thus far, but really need the AC this time of the year. Please help.


ONE SUGGESTION COULD BE TO SWAP THE RELAY FOR ANOTHER TO SEE IF THIS FIXES THE PROBLEM. IF IT DOESN'T, THEN PERHAPS THE COMPRESSOR CLUTCH IS STUCK IN THE CLOSED POSITION. UNPLUG THE CLUTCH TO SEE IF THE COMPRESSOR STOPS. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR AN HONEST RATING. GOOD LUCK

How to replace belt


To change the serpentine belt is very easy, If you look carefully, you will find a pulley between your alternator and air conditioning pump, this is called the tensioner, In other words the pulley that pushes down the belt between the alternator and a/c pump. Place a 1/2 drive wrench to pull the tensioner up. This will loosen the belt for replacement. Hope this was helpful Good Luck =)

Owner's manual


Try Walter Miller auto literature it is an ebay store he has many owners manuals. You may find that all that is available is a owners manual for the 2003 Dodge Ram and that the conversion info is only items installed on that van. This is how alot of RV-Conversion Van are.
