Replace your a/c evaporator filter under dash. Liquid refrigerant is getting back to compressor causing belt to break.

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.

You just changed the alternator on a 90 LSC you are having trouble getting the belt tensioner back on Is there a trick?

im going on the assumption that you are referring to the belt back on the tensioner cause there is no reason to remove the tensioner to install an alt. if it is a matter of putting the belt on, make sure that the belt is routed correctly through the pulleys. then remove the belt off the alternator, put the belt on the tensioner THEN pull the tensioner back with a wrench on the tensoiner adjusting nut. slip the belt on the alternator and slowly release the wrench. i hope this was helpful

Why is your alternator belt continuing to break and snap on your 97 Mazda Protege?

I am having the same problem with a 99 Protege. I have changed the alternator and aligned/cleaned the pulleys and the problem persists.I replaced the alternator, on my 1997 Mazda Protege, seven times before someone figured out why the serpentine belt kept breaking. It was the belt tensioner! It had to be removed and rebuilt. Now it is working like a charm!! And I havn't had to replace the alternator in over 3 months!!!!

I have a 2006 ford five hundred and am having a problem getting the belt tight enough I have the belt on all wheels alternator and belt tensioner properly but I cannot move the belt tension?

This vehcile uses a serpentine belt. The belt tension is set automatically by the tensioner. If the tensioner is stuck and will not apply tension to the belt then it is defective and needs replacing.

Why is your car squealing after having serpentine belt changed?

Possibly the wrong belt was installed or most likely your belt tensioner is bad.

Why do the brakes still occasionally fail on my 2002 Chevy Silverado even after having the master cylinder replaced?

It has to do with the ABS most likely mine would engage or slip when coming to a stop.I replaced the hub that has the sensor on it and have not had a problem since.I took out my ABS fuse under the hood till I got it fixed. Just disables the anti lock part of the brakes. I thought it was safer then rear ending someone.
