WHY do i need to change tentioner after changing timing belt

Posted by on

    When the timing belt is replaced, other parts, including the tensioner, should be replaced at the same time. This is because these components wear out at essentially the same rate as the belt. For instance, the tensioner bearings could dry out or even seize causing the new belt to break.

Insurance for reliability or omit and wait for the failure.
Once you're in there, get it done, just like water pump too

How to adjust a tensioner on a 2001 chrysler voyager


You mean your belt tentioner, serpentine belt, it is not adjustable if your belt is coming off you have a bad tentioner, bad pulley or your power stering pump is leaken and your belt is soaked, if oilly firts found your leak (most common is a hose from reservoir to pump) then replace belt with a cheap belt (had lost of trouble with Life time or hi dollar belts), in the mean time also inspect your tentioner if ani play side ways replace it, also remove idle pulley and spun it close to your ear, if any noise replace it, you may get away with a single item changed, but for trouble free time, replace all items: belt tentioner ($38) idle pulley($25) serpentine belt ($25)

Where is belt tensioner and how do you turn it to loosen belt to change


The belt tentioner pully is the idler pully in the serpentine belt system...
You need a long wrnch (11/16??) to fit the pullys center bolt...
Turn the bolt to the right ( righty tighty) and the tentioner will losten its tention on the belt enough to remove the belt...
Imediately replace the belt ... so its routing is not forgotten by time or distraction...
If there is still a sticker on the upper radiator support reflecting the serpintine belt routing.. then you are in a better spot to be doing this ... with distractions...

I need to change the belt on my powersteering pump.


there should be a belt tentioner, go to autozone and ask for a component location on the belt tensioner, they will print out a little paper for you showing you the belt routing and wich pulley the belt is being tentioned by, once you spot it, look and see if you will need either a plain 3/8ths rachet or a sized wrench tool, if its a little square then you just need a rachet if its a nut then use a wrench, and just turn it either clockwise of counter clockwise to loosen the belt and thats it.

Hi, do I need to change the timing belt on c 240, year 2002


Do not change the timing chain until its loosened / stretched to the limit. You should check & replace the engine oil and gear oil(if separate). Also get the air filter & engine oil filter replaced. See if the tyres are worn out otherwise exchange the tyres diagonally. A good servicing including greasing should be enough...................sodeep

Changing ac compressor belt


This should be a serpentine belt that is held in place with a spring loaded belt tensioner. There shold be a label under the hood showing the correct belt orientation. You need to have a long open end wrench or box wrench tentioner forward, addition tention to it to allow the belt to be slipped over one or the other pullys, once this is done, the belt should be tight. If it is over all the pullys and still loose, you either have the wrong belt or the tensioner is bad.
