the belt is supposed to be tight
but, if you need to loosen for some reason , and it is staying tight, i would suggest it is the wrong belt and probably jamming in the pulley wheels
If you looking behind or on the side of the power steering pump, you'll see a bolt. When you loosen the bolt, the pump will slide down and loosen the belt.
It is recommended that you change the timing belt, on your Jeep grand Cherokee, 3.1 liter diesel engine, every 60,000 miles. Not changing the timing belt may void your warranty.
Depends on which engine you have. The 2.5-liter I-4 and 2.8-liter V-6 take four quarts. The 4.0 I-6 takes six quarts.
6 quarts of 5w30
6 quarts 5w30
The temperature sending unit on a 1999 Jeep Cherokee 4 liter is screwed into the thermostat housing on the front of the engine.
In 2002 they had the I6 motor still, it takes 6 qts. with the filter change.
The pulley bellow the alternator is the tensioner. Rotate it with a 15mm to loosen belt.
5.5qts and its a 4.0 inline 6 not a v6
On my 97 jeep grand Cherokee, with the 5.2 liter v8, its located in the distributor, under cap & rotor.
It is in the distributor.
On my 97 3.5L you have to loosen the bolt (15mm)on the front of the idler (loosen, don't remove) then go underneath and the is a 13mm bolt that adjusts the position of the idler for tension. Loosen this and the idler should loosen up.
Cherokee 4.0 Serpentine Belt TensionerThis engine does not have an tensioner for the serpentine belt. Only the 5.2 liter and 5.9 liter engines have a tensioner. The adjustment is at the power steering pump. Just loosen the power steering pump rear mounting bolts, pivot bolt and lock nut and then loosen the power steering pump adjusting bolt. Slip the belt on and tighten the adjusting bolt until you can push the belt in about one inch midway between the A/C and alternator pulleys. Then tighten the lock nut, pivot bolt and mounting bolts and that's it.
Remove the skid plate, then loosen the fan cowling and move it forward as much as possible, remove the fan bolts and lay the fan against the radiator. From below locate the airconditioner power steering belt pulleys, loosen the nut in the center of each, follow the threaded shaft from the pulley to the adjuster nut below, unscrew to loosen the tension until it can be removed, replace with serpentine belt available at Auto Zone or any other parts store. Reverse the steps to install. Watch for several days to determine you have the correct tension on the belt.
I would imagine you have to pull the tranny and transfer case, Also that part of the exhaust just to access it.
there really is no difference in the engine it will be the computer and electrical connections
