Sounds like the bearing is seized on the lower pulley. Remove the pulley and check the bearing. . John In Montana
If you are trying to move the the bottom pulley without a socket it is not easily done ! this is the crankshaft pulley and is connected to the cam by the timing belt ! turning this pulley is in turn trying to turn the whole engine over against the compression of the cylinders ! If your engine is still assembled you can put a socket on the bolt and should be able to turn it with some effort !! if there was an engine problem that brought you to this point , and the engine will not turn over with the socket (or only goes part way) you may have a busted timing belt or a more severe problem internally ! Good Luck !
The lower front pulley should be your a/c compressor. If it is not engaging or cycling you may have to charge with freon. Or the compressor is locked up. Is the belt squeeling? You can bypass the compresssor with a shorter belt to get you by.
This pulley is the A/C Compressor - It is common for the compressor to seize up. However, be sure you're looking at the pulley and not the clutch on the outside of the pulley - It will only turn when the Compressor Clutch is engaged. If the Compressor IS locked up, you're serpentine belt will need to be replaced also. The A/C system will need to be drained before the compressor can we removed.
It is on the front of the crank shaft. It seals the oil at the crank pulley.
It is mounted just above the crankshaft pulley on the front of the engine.It is mounted just above the crankshaft pulley on the front of the engine.
Crank sensor failure. It is located on the front of the engine, points down to the crank pulley.
Its on the front of the engine. The pulley with the fan.
Front driver side of the crankshaft pulley.
Front of engine, reads off a a tone wheel behind the crankshaft pulley.
The crankshaft position sensor is located at the lower left hand side of the crankshaft pulley. The crankshaft pulley is the large pulley located in the center lower portion of the front of the engine.
replace front brake rotors and pads.
Depends on year. 1989 to 1998.5 it is on the front above the crank pulley. 1998.5 to 2002 it is behind the starter. 2003-present it is below the crank pulley.
The oil pump is on the front of the crankshaft, underneath the pulley and timing chain sprocket.
Check the main crank pulley.
There is one on each end of the crankshaft. The front main seal is at the pulley and, while the rear main is at the transmission end.
On 2002 it is located on the lower lefthand portion of the block, to the left of the crankshaft pulley if you are looking front on at the engine
12 valve engine: front above the crank pulley 24 valve engine: behind the starter.
Standing in front of truck look to your below power steering pump you see a pulley that is your tenisorner pulley 15mm loosing the bolt on pulley above to the left is another 15mm also turn counter clock wise to loosen it this will help remove the belt
It depends which "pulley" you mean. Drive pulleys are on the front of the engine.
Leave it turned off.... doh
Loose Motor Mounts
Lower/front/driver side of the block. The one aiming at the crank pulley is the crank sensor. The cam sensor is just above it.Lower/front/driver side of the block. The one aiming at the crank pulley is the crank sensor. The cam sensor is just above it.
12 valve it is on the front of the engine, above the crankshaft pulley. 24 valve it is behind the starter, in the side of the block.
The crankshaft pulley is the lowest pulley on the engine. Looking at the engine from the front which is looking at it from the passenger side fender the crank pulley is on the bottom of the engine and has a pulley with a pulley behind it with teeth on it.
On the tension pulley above the AC unit there is a tension bolt behind the pulley. Loosen the front nut on the front of the pulley then loosen the long bolt to drop the pulley until the belt fits. Tighten the long back bolt until the belt is tight ( see manf. recommendations on torque ) then tighten the bolt on the front of the pulley.
The front main is behind the crank pulley. The rear main is behind the flexplate/flywheel. The trans has to be removed to access this one.
