Yes, if the belt tension is not tight enough it won't spin the radiator fan due to slippage. Replace the tensioner pulley.
You can, for about 10% of the price of a new pulley, but you need a bearing press or hydraulic press to do it properly. A new metal pulley usually costs around $30, but the bearing can be obtained for $3 to $4.
Loosen bolt in tension pulley, then loosen tension bolt. Replace belt. Tighten tension bolt. Last, tighten bolt through pulley.
Look at the radiator fan, behind it you should see a pulley. The pulley is connected to the water pump. The center pulley is attached to the water pump. It is not a hard pump to replace, just a pain in the rear to do so. Y-THINK-Y
The idler pulley is located just under the A/C compressor. There is a bolts in the middle of the pulley that needs to be removed and the idler pulley can be removed. Sometimes these bolts stick and my need to be pryed off. You may also want to removed the radiator fans cow to give you some extra room.
You cant. Them come with a automatic belt tensioner and if the belt breaks, you must disassemble the whole pulley system.
loosen the pulley bolt slightly and then an upward facing bolt on the bracket will lower or raise the pulley.
Might try putting an air gun on the crank pulley nut but not recommended. Best to replace the starter motor and do it right
The tension pulley should have a bolt that holds it on, allowing you to replace the unit.
i am having this same problem and i couldn't figure out why this was because when i inspected the pulley it appeared to be up against the engine, but i just figured out that the pulley is acually two pieces (the pulley and vibration dampener that it sits on) that can separate and cause the pulley to move towards your fan. you will need to replace the pulley/vibration dampener. You will probably need to expose your flywheel and have a friend put something against it to keep the engine from turning over when doing this.
Remove the old, damaged idler pulley and replace it with a new one.
my husband just did so. the pulley is part of the air condition compressor, so you have to replace the whole part that's connected to the pulley, you can'tjust replace the pulley it self, and going to the junk yard for these partsis very cheap and the way to go.
replace 1996 nissan 200sx se 1.6 tension pulley
Take off belt, remove bolt in center of pulley, replace with new pulley (comes with bearing). Reverse to install Take off belt, remove bolt in center of pulley, replace with new pulley (comes with bearing).
replace the pump
Call the parts store. They will be able to tell you if the pulley is available separately or not.
Remove air box, pulley is located just under attached to engine block. Should remove bolts take off belt, and replace pulley and belt.
Should have an automatic belt tensioner -perhaps it is defective I don't think there is a belt tensioner. Belt tension is adjusted at the power steering pump bracket and idler pulley assembly.
what pulley/ there are only about 7 or so on a vehicle. water pump, alternator, ac, power steering pulley
That pulley has a bearing on the inside of it that has gone bad. Replace the pulley with a new 1
Haynes says that the pulley bracket to block bolts should be torqued to 14 ft/lbs.
around the crank pulley them over to the idler pulley then arounmd a/c pulley up to the alt. pulley then to the p/s pulley to the tentioner. there wasnt that easy
fisrt start withe the serpentine belt. loosen that with the p/s pulley. Drain the cooling system. Then take off the hose that runs from the pump to the radiator. Now remove w/p pulley by removing the 4 bolts that hold it on. Next you will have to remove the bolts that hold the w/p in place which are visible upon removal of the pulley. Remove pump and reverse to replace. P.S. It will get a little wet when doing this. also this is a great opportunity to replace any cooling system components (i.e. thermostat, hoses, reservoir...)
Only if you can tighten the belt without it.
