no the serpentine belt is totally separate from timing belt

yes this is an interference engine damage to valves will occur if the timing belt breaks and the engine is turned

If the check engine light is blinking that means an engine cylinder misfire has been detected

The 1994 full size Chevy used the serpentine belt system to drive the pump and fan and it turned them counterclockwise.

Looking at the engine from the front of the car, the water pump is on the left side. It is the front most & highest pulley being turned by the serpentine belt. Right in front of the power steering pump.

Yes. Have had this happen to me. A serpentine belt is what brings power to both your alternator and your power steering pump. If the alternator isn't turned by the belt, it can't produce electricity, and your engine will stop. If the power steering pump isn't turned by the belt, it can't move fluid, and your power steering will quit working (note that you can still steer in an emergency, but it's VERY tough). Hope this helps. NJM

It is not supposed to be on when engine is running unless there is a problem.

After finding top dead center by turning engine over till compression on #1 cylinder and setting distibutor with rotor at #1 cylinder . engine was ready to be turned over . engine started now at this point is it necessary to remove a wire for crank sensor or ignition system to set the timing w a light.

The air temperature in a diesel engine cylinder is 1022 F. This will ignite the fuel. the high compression, 22 to1, will light the fuel. A spark engine with a carburetor may "diesel" when the key is turned off because of glowing carbon deposits in the cylinder, self ignition.

ithe compressor is ran off of the belt, along with the fan and alternator, power stearing and when turned on puts an extra strain on the engine. This is more noticeable on a 4 cylinder than a v6

When a check engine light comes on, it means that there are issues with the engine. It gets turned off when the person resolves the problem that caused it to turn on.

It is probably your cooling fans. These are electric and may run with the engine turned off. It is probably your cooling fans. These are electric and may run with the engine turned off.

A Google search turned up a hand full of diagrams.

On the V6 engine, the ignition coil are on the top back of the engine where the spark plug wires attach to . On the 4 cylinder, theyh are located inside the housing that covers the top of the engine. That housing needs to come off, turned upside down, then you will see the coils.

Most of the time the tensioner is the wheel that runs over the top of your serpentine belt and moves as the belt moves. it is located on the front of your engine. look for something with a smooth edged wheel moving up and down while your engine is turned on.

I believe on the passenger side of the engine (the "front" of the engine since it's a front wheel drive, it's turned sideways in the engine compartment). On the newer (not newest, per se) model Malibu, the engine must be supported while the engine mount is removed or unbolted to replace the belt. Of course, if you are just doing the pulley, the belt can lay there until the new pulley is installed, and supporting the engine/removing th emount will not be necessary. Find the serpentine belt and it will be in contact with the tensioner pulley. Tensioners and idler pulleys are typically fairly simple to replace, and relatively inexpensive (parts at least) from what I've seen.

because someone probably turned the engine on

The key has to be turned to the "Run" position, but the engine should not be running. The key has to be on to power up the ECU.

The serpentine belt that operates the accessories is loose, or glazed and the squeel you hear is when an extra load is placed on it when the compressor cuts in. Tighten or replace the serpentine belt.

That would be the radius of the largest cylinder that can be turned in the lathe.

the seat on the exhaust valve is dirty so the valve does not seal it.... not sure how to clean it

the engine is using its power to run the power steering pump
