How do you tight the serpentine belt in a matrix. when i am putting in the alternator back in place but am having trouble putting in the belt on it.
It takes a long wrench to turn the bolt for the tension pulley.You release tension on the belt to remove it, then let go of the pulley when you have the belt back on.The tensioner is spring loaded and keeps the belt tight.There is a video ... Cars & Trucks

Have a 1993 Cadillac Deville who's drive belt came off.. put back per diagram in hood but has about 5 to 6 inches to much slack still.. could it have stretched that much or am I missing something here? belt was replaced about 2000 miles ago
Call a different parts store and make sure you have the correct belt, be sure to check the drivers side door jam for the production date (this can sometimes be an issue). If you do, then your missing something. ... 1998 Cadillac DeVille
I have a 94 camry V6 XLE with 150K miles. It overheated and the mechanic says it's the water pump. But he also says the camshaft seals are leaking and this will make the timing belt break. My question is whether to just replace the water pump or pay $850 for the seals and new timing belt. Is it worth putting this much money into the car? Any advice? (I don't know if the timing belt has ever been changed; it could be the original belt)
94 w/150k? This your call. This vehicle is 15 yrs behind in technology, It's condition mechanically will get progressively worse at a faster rate.In the 70's the life expectancy of the average vehicle was 3-5 yrs, in the 80's,5--7, 90's 10-15 yrs ... 1994 Toyota Camry
Hello. I am having constant problems with my 1997 chevy cavalier serpentine belt. My old wrecked belt was working fine but when it started wearing too thin i got a new one. As soon as the new one was put in it starting squealing very loudly when i accelerated. My mechanic used sandpaper to wear down the edges of the belt a bit and that worked at first but the loud squealing returned. This time i used sandpaper to eliminate the noise but i guess i used it too much because the belt soon shredded

The serpintine belt shredded on one side, and fell off. Much coolant was released from the vehicle. Don't know which happened first. The pulleys all move freely, except for the crank pulley, which I believe drives the belt. The pulley at the water pump, however, is wobley, but it does turn. I was thinking about replacing the belt, and putting coolant in it. What do you think?
Your problem is the waterpump. The bearings on the pump have failed resulting in a "wobley" pulley. ... 1992 Buick Park Avenue

The alternator belt on my 97 Mazda protege LX has squealed for a while but the battery and everything was always fine. I just tried to start it after the car sat for 2 months and it runs for a while but the battery light is now on if you start putting on headlights and stuff everything gets dimmer so i shut the car off. I was wondering- does this sound like it could be the alternator belt and if so, how much does it cost to repair it on average?
Is the alternator belt still squealing? if so, tighten it. The light should go off unless your alternator is dead. ... Mazda Protege
Mazda 2002 MPV Mini Van: Drive pulley fell off the shaft of the power steering pump. Threaded shaft lost its nut and pulley slid from shaft. A local garage returned the pulley to the shaft, installed a new nut but then could not put the serpentine belt back. They said the belt was too tight and was impossible to install. They replaced it with one a bit longer. Result was much rumbling noise sounding like a loose or defective or dry bearing. Towed it back to the shop. Is there a r

I have a 87 chevy silverado R-10 the altenator belt keeps squeals everytime I put heater on high,its like its pulling to much from the battery. I had a heating problem and replaced the heater core,waterpump,hoses and belts. It turn out that the altenator and power steering pump pulleys needed to lined up. But it still squeals after awhile.
The squeal is most likely caused by belt slippage or a defective idler pulley. The drive belts when properly aligned,are sensitive to tightness and deflection. I have posted a diagram on belt deflection specs. I would also replace the id ... Chevrolet R10
