The tensioner has a spring in it that provides the correct tension for the belt. If it is too loose, replace the tensioner.
The 93 Acclaim has a serpentine belt. The tensioner below the alternator is what keeps the tension. If you have not tension I would replace the belt first and then check the tensioner.
remove bottom skid plate and find ac belt and find ac belt tensioner and loosen center bolt and screw in long bolt to tighten,then tighten lock nut.
find the belt tensioner and use a rachet to oush the tensioner back
You don't, they have a tension pulley that does that automatically. If the belt is too loose, the pulley most likely has to be replaced. Thecommi ::: The serpentine belt is held by tention with a automatic belt tensioner. If the serpentine belt is loose, you will most likely have to replace the entire belt tensioner assembly. the assembly comes with a new pully.
Has anyone ever really been far even as decided to use the belt tensioner on 93 plymouth ranger even go want to do look more like?
Lossen 17 mm bolt at botton of tensioner and screw 13mm bolt on tensioner stud untill belt is tight then re torque 17mm bolt !!
lokks to be on the lower right side of engine
rotate the tensioner clockwise to release the tension and remove the belt then slowly release the tensioner. route new belt over the various pulleys according to the diagram under the hood again rotating the tensioner as to allow belt to fit in place and then slowly release the tensioner again.
If it's a 3.8 with a single serpentine belt with the tensioner at the right rear engine compartment. You have to remove the engine mount and raise the front of the moter that is the only way to get a wrench on the tensioner . .
You pry it over enough to remove the belt. You loosen the tensioner pulley bolt and thread the adjuster bolt backwards on a 4.0L.
AnswerHow do i replace water pump on a 93 ford escort 1.9 liter?AnswerHow do i replace water pump on a 93 ford escort 1.9 liter?you place a jack under the oil pan raise it up a little, remove the motor mount, remove serpentine belt and belt tensioner completely, remove timing belt cover loosen timing belt tensioner, remove timing belt, take of hoses on both ends of water pump, and remove four bolts that hold it on one is tricky it is under the spout where the hose connects that is closest to the cab.
Had that same problem on my 93 the tensioner wore out. had to have it replaced.
with a scanner
I have worked with my 1994 and 1995 models of 900 - presuming the same for newer models. The tensioner is located on theupper end near the firewall. I found it most easily managed by using a 1/2 inch breaker bar.
Check the belts. If they are slipping they can cause this smell. Also if the timing belt tensioner is failing...it may be causing the belt to burn. Have this checked to prevent a major breakdown. If you have never replaced the timing belt. Just do it. Cheap insurance.
I had the tensioner and belt replaced on my 93 saturn. Before hiring someone I looked into it online. My advice is that unless you have the tools and basic skills for mechanics (the basics yes, the tools no) I would suggest you take it to a mechanic and since you are doing that you might aswell have the serpinine belt replaced and tightened too. Good luck
You need a 1/2" breaker bar or ratchet handle, place in the appropriate slot in the belt tensioner, and pull or push to release the tension. The diagram is under the hood for proper replacement.
This is for a 93 Z34 3.4, I believe the front cover is the same for both engines, making the water pumps identical. REMOVAL: Drain the cooling system into a suitable container. Slightly loosen the four 10mm bolts holding the water pump pulley in place. Take note of the way the accessory belt is routed. Use a large wrench to rotate the belt tensioner away from the belt. Remove the accessory belt. Carefully release the tensioner. Remove the bolts holding the water pump pulley in place and remove the pulley. Remove the water pump housing bolts and extract the water pump. Have a bucket handy in case anymore coolant comes out when you pull of the pump. INSTALLATION: Install the new water pump with a suitable sealer on the gasket. Tighten the mounting bolts. Make sure the pump shaft spins as easily as it did when it wasn't installed. If it is binding, take it off and figure out why. Attach the pulley and firmly hand tighten the pulley bolts. Line up the accessory belt and rotate the tensioner to get it fully on. Release the tensioner. Now make sure to fully tighten the pulley mounting bolts. Start the car, let it warm up to operating temp and check for leaks. You're done!
It depends on whether you have the self-adjuster or not. Without the adjuster the steering pump needs to be loosened at the three bolts that hold the pump to the bracket. The bottom bolt is the tension adjuster. With the self-adjuster, you need to rotate the adjuster towards the engine to slip the belt off. Once the belt is off the tensioner it will move out of the way. Be prepared to use a block of some type to hold the tensioner so it won't hit the battery case. The nut on the tensioner is a 15mm size Also, once you have the belt off, be very sure you put the new one on the right way. There should be a sticker on the engine cowl that shows you how the serpentine belt should route around the engine pulleys. Once you have it routed right, make sure you tighten everything very tight, making sure you have put enough tension on the belt. This is usually a tough part of the process because you need to get the tension against the adjusters, which keep the belt tight as it moves
Loosen the bolt that holds the alternator to the bracket. Tip the alternator toward the enginge. Place a new belt on, making sure you catch all of the pulleys. Pivot the alternator away from the engine to tighten the belt. When belt is tight, re-secure the bolt you loosened earlier.
the '93 Taurus has a 16 gallon tank
im assuming you have the diagram on the hood. Run the belt in the proper sequence. you will leave getting it under the tensioner for last. take the top bolt out of the alternator and just loosen the bottom one. alternator will pivot just a little,but you need all you can get with these cars. now force the tensioner up with a bar and slide the belt under it. secure alternator and your done. i like to put a wrench on crank pully and rotate engine by hand just to check belt alignment.
Take it to the dealer! It's not a job for the timid or any shop that doesn't know what they are doing. Make sure you get the idler pulleys and automatic tensioner replace along with the timing belt. If the bearings seize in those idler pulleys it will ruin the belt and in turn take out your engine.
It has a cam belt.
Disconnect the battery. Loosen the ac bracket bolts. Slide the compressor to allow the belt to come off (if there are other belts in the way then they will have to be removed first.) Replace the belt. Slide the compressor snug but not too tight then tighten the bolts and re-connect the battery.
