318 belt diagram mysteryi have an '87 dodge 4wd pickup with a 318. no one on this planet has a diagram. i' ve checked at least a 100 sites with no luck

This may sound sarcastic, but have you looked under the hood, alot of the time there is a sticker with belt diagram and emissions information either actually stuck on the underside of the hood or radiator cross support.

Actually belts are pretty much self explanatory as to where they go on an engine. If you stand at the front of the vehicle where you can look straight across the pulleys you can see how they line up, and that is pretty much where the belts go. You must determine which set of pulleys is the first set to install the belt on and progress outward from there. A lot of times the Alternator and the air injection pumps will run on separate smaller belts which only fit on their respective pulleys. Your NEW belts will be close to or slightly smaller than your old ones, and you might have to adjust the various sliders for them to where you can get the new tight belts on. When you are adjusting the new belts for tension, there should be between 1/2" and 1" of "give" in the belts at their mid travel point or as close to it as you can get. The only belts I can think of which really need diagrams are the serpentine ones on th enewer vehicles, and MOST of them have the diagram somewhere under the hood.

Go to and look under specifications, belt routing. On a 1989 Dodge Grand Caravan, the diagram is on the side of the engine where the S-belt is located.

A 2007 Dodge 3500 diesel engine serpentine belt routing diagram can be obtained from most auto-parts stores. When you purchase the serpentine belt, ask for a routing diagram.

Yes, there is a diagram for a 1995 Dodge Spirit Serpentine Belt Diagram. It is found in the maintenance manual to the car.
