Hi got a 96 850 diesel estate the fuel pump timing belt snapped had new one fitted plus new cam belt all timing reset but mecanic can only get it running ticking over wont rev and smokes checked timing no joy any ideas thanks


Sounds like the mechanic has to go back and figure it out. For all we know the valves are bent now and you may have a hole in a piston. We have no idea since we have no diagnostic data to go off of. \015\012Maybe the belt was put on wrong. ... 1996 Volvo 850

My 1994 Geo Tracker was running fine for a while, but then it up and died on me. So we went and put a new belt on it, and that didn't work. We got a another belt cuz the one snapped, and we also replaced the alternator and the battery. Then when we tried to start it up it still doesn't charge the battery. Recently we tried again and it blew a fuse. When we replaced the fuse it popped again. I don't know what to do cuz I'm car stupid. Please help.

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

I have a 1985 mercedes 380sl. (100,000 miles) I just replaced the fuel filter and now it ehausts heavy white smoke. it does not smell like antifreeze! it was immediate..the old and new filters are OEM mercedes parts, however the new one seemed to install opposite of the old one ( no arrow to show the flow on the new one) note: the hose fitting seemed to be installed on the opposite end compared to the old one, but again, no arrow to indicate the flow...any help on this one?? thanks


Due to the design of the fuel the filter can't be installed backwards, this is true of all MB fuel filters. Ok that said. a fuel filter will never cause white smoke, that has to be from oil or coolant entering the engines combustion chambers, if it i ... Mercedes-Benz SL-Class

Belt snapped looking for a picture where the pulleys are so i can see how to put this belt on. Its the one for the alternator.The other belt is still there and operational. I need to see how to take the other belt off to put the new one on. Also is there a tension pully there? If there is;is it supposed to be in a fixed position when there is no belt there? That's why i need to see a picture of it. Unless you can tell me.


U dont need no diagram or picture to change the belt just look how your old one is on there and change the belt by unscrewing the alternator bolts and push the alternator down and take the belt off. ... 2004 Nissan Sentra

I replaced the right front cv axle on my 2000 Chevy Tracker with a new axle. The axle keeps pulling away from the wheel hub pushing the snap ring on the outer portion of the shaft out of its groove. I've tried 2 new axles and they both did the same thing. The snap rings are replaced with new ones each time. What could be causing this problem? Is the auto parts store giving me the wrong axle? I am contemplating getting a remanufactured axle instead, at least I would know for sure it had fit and r

I'm trying to switch the belt that is on the alternator. The previous belt was loose enough to pull right off. Now i'm stuck because I haven't the slightest idea of how to slide the alternator to get the new belt on and fitting properly. There is one side bolt and one top bolt attached to the alternator and when taken off the alternator remains solid and will not slide down. I believe i'm missing something in the process.
