no the serpentine belt is totally separate from timing belt
It is a idler pulley.
UNDER THE HOOD THERE WILL BE A DIAGRAM
It is the unit in the top right corner of the serpentine belt path.
you have to loose the belt in order to slide it out by releasing tension on the tensioner pulley ,what you do it`s sore of a tight motion clockwise on the tensioner bolt it`ll loosen the belt and then you can slide it out, to install it do the same.
The diagram is on the radiator fan shroud.
Have 2008 escape with 105 k. still no need to change. Have Chev s10 with 150k Still original. if drving close to home wait til it breaks.
This is just a guess so take it with a grain of salt. I would buy a belt for the s10 without air conditioning and just bypass the air conditioning pump.
A 2000 Chevy S10 does not have a timing belt.
insert a 1/2" rachet into the tension pully, pull clock wise this will relive the tension on the belt thus allowing you to remove the belt repet to install new belt. make sure the groves of the belt are properly in place before relasing the tension pully back to tension
Tensioner pulley below the alternator. Should be a 14 or 15mm socket and turn counter-clockwise.
The Chevrolet S10 doesn't have a timing belt.
Yes you can.
Use a half inch ratchet.Place the stub on ratchet into slot located on idler pulley and push down to relieve tension on belt. replace belt and push down on ratchet to reload Actually, I believe it's 3/8 inch and a breaker bar works just as well.
Under the hood of the truck. There will be a sticker with a diagram of your pulley system.Just follow the path the belt takes in the drawing.You will need I believe a 13mm socket for your tension pulley.
The 97 S10 2.2L engine doesn't have a timing belt.
The water pump would be a standard rotation. The serpentine belt moves clockwise on the model truck which would make it standard not reverse. With a serpentine belt system like the one in the 2000 S10 4.3, any pulley that is grooved turns clockwise. Any pulley that is smooth turns counterclockwise. The water pump pulley on that S10 is smooth and turns CCW.
not really but would not suggest starting it because of over heating issues and as long as the battery is charged it should start
The 02 Chevy S10 with a 4 cylinder or a 6 cylinder does not have a timing belt.
Any 1983 - 1993 S10, and 1983 - 1994 Blazer, Jimmy, or Bravada.
