Does a Pontiac grand prix have a timing belt or chain?

The Pontiac Grand Prix has a Timing Chain with a spring loaded tensioner. The tensioner is know to wear, crack and then break. The timing chain and tensioner should be replaced at 100,000 miles. This is a pretty big job that can be done with the motor in the car. $$$ Ray

When to do a timing belt on a 2.2L?

The GM 2.2L (not ECOTEC) engine for that model year used a timing chain with a teflon tensioner. As far as I know, it had no belt. However, the tensioners are notorious for failure...they break off and get between the chain and the sprocket, which snaps the chain. When this happens, the valves contact the pistons, bending them. If the engine is starting to sound like a diesel, you should consider having the chain and tensioner replaced.

The belt is adjusted by the tensioner, which generally isn't adjustable unless the spring has started to fail or break. If the belt is slipping or making noise check it for cracks on the ribbed side. If you see any cracks, replace the belt. If the tensioner seems soft, it too can be replaced.

Usually belts shred due to 1) bad or seized power steering pump or belt tensioner 2) Mis-Aligned pulleys or belt tensioner. 3) gremlins (or maybe nicked the belt during other repairs and it wore badly) just happened to me and I replaced tensioner as mine had seized. it started making horrible squealing sounds after the repair. I replaced the pump and all was well after that.

How do you adjust the serp belt on a 91 beretta 2 point 2?

There is a belt tensioner that is spring loaded and it adjusts the tightness of the serp belt. The tensioner is self adjusting as the serp belt stretches out from use. You cannot adjust the belt tension yourself. If your serp belt is showing signs of cracking on the underside then you should replace it. If you suspect the belt tensioner is not putting enough tension on your serp belt then it should be replaced. I had a 1991 Corsica with the same motor and I had a belt tensioner break. This caused my serp belt to come off.

How do you change serpetine belt on 300E?

It is not hard. If you have the owners manual there is a picture of the route. On the front of the engine you will see a belt tensioner. Look at the belt tensioner and look close for a square that you can put a ratchet wrench inside the square. That is how you pull the belt tensioner back so you can place the belt on. It's just that easy. Be sure that all the groves are lined up on the pulleys and crawl under to make double sure. Did your belt break? Your A/C compressor is the biggest reason belts break. Listen for it. B
