What do i do when the new timing belt i want to replace seems too small on my 09 aveo5.

You need to find the idler wheel. That can be loosened allowing for the belt to be placed on. Once on you pull it tight again and bolt it in position.

Bypass power steering

Attempting to drive a car designed for power steering without the pump will increase the effort at the wheel so you may not be able to steer it.
Go to a junkyard and buy a used pump, cost you less.

My compressor is bad on my 2000 pontiac sunfire 2.4, i am wanting to bypass the belt with a new (smaller belt) can u please tell me what size i will need

What you are looking for is called an 'air conditioner compressor bypass pulley'. Most chain auto parts stores have them in stock.

All you do is install the bypass pulley and use a shorter belt.

The only downside is the cost of $25-$40. That's about one-third the cost of a remanufactured unit and the labor is compatible.

All the best

I have a 99 chevrolat suberban 1500. Is it possible to bypass the a/c compressor, and use the same belt?. If not what type of belt do I need?

Bypassing the AC compressor is not done with a belt, all modes and engines have but one belt number, what is done is that a AC bypass pulley is installed in place of the compressor. These bypass pulleys are little motre than the cost of a belt, they are made by GM as a replacemement part and in the aftermarket by a comapny named "DORMAN" any good parts store like Napa or Carquest can order the pulley you need. here is a picture of a typical pulley

Belt is burning onto the belt tensioner pulley

One of the pulleys is bad and is not spinning.You will need to remove the belt and spin each one to see which one is locked up or very difficult to turn. The only pully you will not be able to turn should the crankshaft pully all others should spin relatively easy.

My AC compressor went out on my 2004 Chevy Blazer. Since winter is here, I just want to bypass the ac. I bought a belt for the same yr/make without ac. Where can I find a serpentine belt routing diagram to...

its the same. but a different pulley takes place of the a/c compressor. I know DORMAN makes a few "bypass pulleys" to do this, but dont know if they make one for your truck. at the worst... you will need to get a pulley and bracket from the dealer for a truck without a/c . as long as your a/c pulley bearing is ok, you can let the belt run there.
