From the list i posted in my previous question, the volve service does include replacement of spark plug and serpentine belt, rotate tires. I am not sure if I need to replace all that at 66000 miles. I know i need someone to look at my exterior lighting I had few bulb failures and I could not put all the parts back properly. Do I need to go a volvo dealer? they are charging me $525+ for every 30000 miles service. how much do spark plug and serpintine belt cost? I have 66000 miles and i have no

You do not need to go to a volvo dealership. for the electrical work look in the yellow pages for auto electric repair shops. call around until you find one that works on volvos. they can replace your plug, or more likely the fuse for five dollars ... Volvo S80

The van makes such a racket that I can't take it in traffic without getting people rolling down windows to yell at my vehicle. When I go online to order, I see three sizes of engine.

I have a 1995 cadillac concours deville with a northstar engine and I replaced my serpentine belt, after I replaced it, it was still loose and I tightened it as tight as I could. The belt was the right size, so I figured it was slipping because I didn't clean the pulleys. So I scrubbed the pulleys,bought a new belt, put the new belt on and it was still loose. Do u think I need to replace my tensioner? Or is there a way I can adjust my tensioner?

No adjustment, proper routing? if so tensioner need replacement. ... 1995 Cadillac DeVille

I have a 1999 lexus sc300. The airbags deployed, and my body shop wants to replace both seatbelts, both airbags, the diagnostic module, and possibly the clock spring. I called a lexus dealer also, and they said the diag module would not likely need replaced, and did not mention seat belts. As far as pretensioners on the seatbelts go, would I need new ones, or will the seatbelts still lock? Can diag mods be reset safely? How often do clock springs fail?

This is a very touchy issue if someone were to get into an accident and they did not replace everything they just mentioned they could be sued for millions and they would lose. NO reputable shop would do this job without replacing the pretensioners a ... Lexus SC 300

I have 2006 Dodge Stratus 4 cycl. It died on me while i was driving and wouldn't start back up. i had a mechanic check it out and he said it was the timing belt but he couldn't tell me for sure if replacing the timing belt would fix the problem or if i would need a new motor. would it be woth it to fix it or to get get a new car(that i can't afford)???? how much wouldthis cost??? the mechanic mentioned changing the timing belt, head job, or new motor...

The problem is that it depends on the mileage and the condition of the car and if it was kept up, the timing belt is what keeps the top and bottom of the motor in time, when the belt breaks the pistons come up and hit and bend the valves because the ... Dodge Stratus

1997 Nissan Altima 2.4L serpentine belt and ac belt replacement. How do I do this? I have removed the damaged alternator and have a replacement along with the belts but cannot see the belts well. Do I need to remove the ac unit also or is there an idler that gets moved? I cannot raise the car, so can all of this be done above the engine? Would it be better to tow it to a garage and pay to have it done?

There is an idler pully for the AC belt and im sorry this will have to be done from underneath the car because the idler pulley is on the very bottem. if you can jack it up. and put some stands underneath and it should be no problem. refer to this li ... 1995 Nissan Altima

Tech says serpentine belt needed to be replaced. after changing the belt 2 more times, still cannot use air conditioner or defrost due to loud squealing from belt and it pulls power down from alternator. tension adjusted several times. upon starting the motor, it still squeals for a bit before it quits. I have been told it is probably the compressor going out but if this is the case, why is the thing squealing upon start up when the compressor is not running. what is going on with this?

My 2001 alero has been making a whining pitch somewhere near the serpentine belt. I have had the belt the tension rod, alternator, and water pump pulley replaced . It is still making the same noise. I took it to the local college on town ( got too expensive to keep going to a mechanic) the class and instructor were gone and I was supposed to get my car back that day. It looked like all it needed was the the belt put on as the water pump pulley and alternator had been replaced. Well it sounds hor

I have a 1995 Buick Lesabre 3800 6 cyl. and I am wondering if I can bypass the ac compressor with a smaller belt and what size belt would work. I do know you can get a pulley to go into the place of the Compressor, but can you just get a smaller belt?? This seem like it would be easier for me to do myself for a quick fix. I don't need the ac this winter anyway. Thanks....

Just had this exact same problem with my car. Sears Automotive said that it may just be simpler to get a smaller belt and bypass the compressor. Talked to someone at another store and they suggested the same thing instead of spending a ton of money t ... 1995 Buick LeSabre

Have a 1996 buick lesabre 1800 engine. The serpentine belt was replaced recently. Drove it the other day with the AC running. Shut it down in the driveway before turning off the engine. Later on went to go somewhere, started the car and went to back up but had no sterring and a few idiot lights came on. Pulled back in, open hood found the serpentine belt snapped. A friend came over to help with a new one but we found the AC pump would not turn by hand...Does this mean the pump has freezed up and

Yes the pump should turn freely it could be the output shaft bearing or the compressor is out of oil. the best bet is to get a belt that will fit everything but the air compressor this will give you time to find the money to replace the pump and repa ... 1996 Buick LeSabre

I need to replace a serpentine belt on a 2001 GMC sierra 4.8L. I see the belt tensioner for the AC belt, but the tensioner for the main belt is less obvious. There is an idler pulley but it does not look like it would untension.

It is decieving. if the tensioner has an extension of about two inches from the base, it takes a 15 mm to lift it, be easy, make sure the wrench is not going to touch anything as you release it after taking the belt off ... 2001 GMC Sierra 1500HD
