serpentine belt

    I had some squeaking under the hood a couple days ago that I suspect was coming from the serpentine belt or one of the belt's pulleys. It only lasted a very short time (maybe a minute or less). By the time I got to a gas station to check it out, the problem was gone. I know if the...

    Hi All, I replaced the serpentine belt and did a regular oil change on my V6 mustang and took it for a spin and everything seemed alright. Later during the day, when I was stuck in traffic, I turned on the A/C but it didn't seem to work. It was blowing warm air. Soon after I noticed that the...

    How do you repair the smog pump for the 5.0 Mustang? I need to pass Texas inspection and I don't know what they look for during inspections. Can I pass the inspection with a smog pump bypass/shorter belt? How much will it cost to replace both the pulley and smog pump?

    Hello Mustang Gods, I currently have an AC compressor that's deemed "bad" by a mechanic. He's wanting to charge me close to $900 to get everything in working order. All I want is my car to run. I don't even care about AC or have the funds for the replacement. Now is there a certain length of...

    I have a 2000 Mustang GT manual tranny with 147,000 miles. Just the other day I replaced my Intake Manifold due to a coolant leak. I obviously had to remove the belt during the job. Once I was done with everything else I put the serpentine belt back on. It drove nicely the first day. But ever...

    I have a concern regarding the new water pump underdrive pulley I just installed... Given that March does not make this pulley with edging and grooves to keep the belt from shifting laterally, I am concerned that the belt will come off of this pulley. Every other pulley has grooves and edging...

    Hey guys, I just finished installing a set of March underdrive pulleys (#2015) and the section of the belt running beneath the tensioner and the part running from the water pump to the alternator is rubbing. I have been reading some forums to find a fix, and came across this: Serpentine belt...

    Yesterday, my 2001 V6 convertible had a problem. When I went to start the car, I cranked it up and then cut off the A/C. It started making a crazy sound and smoke arrose from under the hood, as if the belt was stuck and the pulley was burning it. I shut it off. When I turned the A/C back on and...

    Hi, I'm new to the forum and was looking for some advice. I recently added refrigerant to my AC, and after doing so, I have noticed that when it idles, a strange grinding sound seems to be coming from the engine. I have done some research which leads me to believe it might be a problem with my...

    All of sudden, when pulling out of my parking spot today, I lost power steering, and immediately stopped my car to see what was up. When I popped the hood, I noticed my serpentine belt had popped off. It's still well in tact and in good shape. After re-attaching it 3 times, I can't keep the...

    Ok, before I start, let me tell you guys what I'm working with. A 1987 Lincoln Continental. It has the 5.0 EFI in it. Nothing special, and most definitely not a Mustang, I know that, but I need a little help. My serpentine belt setup is a little hectic. I have the crank, water pump, A/C, P/S...

    This one is kind of my fault to start with! I knew the edge of my belt had already started to tear and was actually going to get a new one on tomorrow but my impatience got the best of me. I had to get my wheels rebalanced again and wanted to put them through the paces (still not right after the...

    Well I recently just bought a 1990 Mustang GT. Although it does not have a power steering pump since it was going to be used as a drag car. I have different plans for it now that I own it and would like to add the power steering pump back. It currently only has one belt around the harmonic...

    I am getting a constant/steady chirping sound from either a pulley or a bearing that is going bad. I took the belt off, and there was no more chirping sound. I just changed the belt tensioner pulley, the bearing was bad. I put a new belt on also. But it still is there. Any ideas?
