You don't buy by length, you buy using Google for

year make model serpentine belts

and if it goes around all the pulleys, it isn't an auxillary belt, it is the main serpentine belt. An auxiliary goes from the crankshaft to one item, usually the AC pulley.

What is a good belt size to use to bypass the a.c. pulley in a 2007 Ford Taurus V6 3.0

it will be pretty much hit and miss to get the right bely
you can get an estimate of the belt length by measuring the distance between where the existing belt contacts the power steering and crank pulley
make a note of that length (A)
now using a tape measure measure from the contact point on the crank pulley around the ac pulley to the contact point on the power steering pulley
make a note of that length (B)
now take A from B and reduce the original belt length by that amount
example -- if the original belt is 1485 mm long and the difference is 145 mm then you would be looking at a new belt length of 1340 mm
well that is the general idea
personally replacing the ac compressor is a far better idea , even if you do not re-gas the system or replacing the ac pulley bearing --cheaper still

How do I intall a new fan belt on a 2004 envoy. I am not sure witch way it goes around the fan

If there is no diagram pasted in the engine compartment, check your owner's manual...or else go to your local auto store warehouse or Chevy dealership...usually the parts counter person can print out the diagram specifically to your vehicle. Since you did not mention the engine specs- I'm going to generically how to install a serpentine belt.

1.) make a loop and slip the loop around the crank shaft pulley
2.) continue looping the belt around the water pump pulley
3.) ...around the A/C pulley
4.) ...and around the idler pulley
Skip the alternator pulley for now- you want to do that one last.
5.) Continue placing the belt around the power steering pump pulley
6.) and over the belt tensioner pulley
7.) Now move the belt tensioner position so that you can loop the belt over the alternator.
8.) Now double check to make sure that the belt is properly and securely fastened around each pulley's grooves. Don't start the motor until you are absolutely sure... and can visually verify that the new belt is installed properly. And don't have anyone (or pets) standing around the car or open engine compartment when you initially start the car just in case the belt breaks...serious injuries can occur!
I've attached a generic drawing it may or may not fit the description of your auto.

Timing belt jump

Remove the t belt and reinstall it. Sounds like you were a half a tooth of on the cams wich would put you a tooth off on the crank. A lack of power makes sense with bad cam timing a s could,very well throw a miss. The misfire did not cause timing to jump

I need to replace the serpentine belt on my car. How do I do that?

These instructions will help you . and also the picture below will help you more.
Locate the belt-routing diagram, printed on the fan shroud or possibly applied to the underside of the hood. This diagram shows you how to properly route the new belt, as well as identifying the location of the various pulleys, including the serpentine belt tensioner.
Move the belt tensioner off the Sable's belt using the serpentine belt tool. The tool connects to the side of the tensioner's arm and essentially acts as a handle for use in moving the tensioner. You can purchase a serpentine belt tool at most auto-part retailers.
Slip the belt away from the tensioner with your free hand and release the pressure on the tensioner with the tool. Pull the belt off the rest of the pulleys by hand and then remove it from the engine well.
Grab the old belt and new belt with one hand and put your foot through the other end of the belts. Stretch them both to their full length and check to ensure their both the same size. The old belt may have up to one-inch of extra length due to normal stretching that occurs during the belt's service life.
Wind the new belt, rib side to the pulley, around the crankshaft pulley. Consult the routing diagram and route the belt to the next pulley on the diagram. Continue to route and then check the diagram until you have the belt wound around every pulley except the belt tensioner pulley.
Double check to make sure the belt routes exactly as shown on the diagram and then move the tensioner aside once more so you can route the belt over the tensioner pulley as shown in the diagram. Move the tensioner back into place slowly and remove the tool.

Good luck

Replace belt

Locate the belt tensioner! It will need to be turned in a direction that wil loosen the belt. up or down i,m not remembering!
next look for a square hole to place a breakover bar in. to move the tensioner.If not you will need a socket placed on the bolt head in the center of the tensioner pulley.This is the only pulley of all the others that you can move,in a circular motion to loosen(remove the tension, and reinstall the new serpintien belt.Check the new belt for length to the old one,are they the same length?
Next if you dont se a decale-sticker,with the belt routing,it is wise to draw one out for your own use. The 4 cylinder engine is a snap,the v6 a bit more complicated,but,you can do it! If i can you can ok??? Remember that the grooved belt side goes on,around the outside of the diameter,of the grooved pulley.the flat faced pulley or pulley's run next to the flatside of the belt. Have a helper unload the tension of the tensioner while you place the belt on and around the pulleys in the correct routing. If the belt seems too long try again for proper routing.Once on, release the tension,and see that the pully is not binding up or running loose,this will damage the new belt.

I need the diagram for the serpinetine belt on a 1991 dodge spirit 3.0

The path of pulleys around which the belt goes (beginning with the crankshaft pulley, and moving clockwise around the array of pulleys) is in this order:
tensioner pulley (belt goes around the pulley counter-clockwise)
power steering pulley (belt goes...clockwise)
alternator (belt...clockwise)
idler pulley (belt going under the pulley)
and back to the crank pulley (belt...clockwise).

My air conditioner compressor is frozen, the alternator belt is running off of the AC pulley. Does any one make a pulley system to replace the compressor unit so I do not have to replace compressor. Car is...

An easier solution and much cheaper would be to buy a shorter belt.

To find out what size belt you need simply run the route with a piece of string excluding going round the AC pulley. Measure the length in MM, then count the groove in the original belt.

Lets say the length of the string works out at say 1202mm and you have 6 grooves in the original belt, that will make the belt part number 6FPK1202

Call the local parts centre and ask for the nearest they have to that number.

The width (6 groove) must remain the same but the length (1202) can alter slightly as you can take up slack on the belt tensioner.

Hope that is worth 4 thumbs up!!
