Question about 2001 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

I have a 2001 ford mustang 3.8l engine with 240,000 miles. we replaced the serpentine belt AND the water pump, a/c compressor, idle pully, tention pully. I still get a loud squeal then the car stalls. Now I cant even get it to start, it cranks but does not turn over. What else could it be, like the crank shaft? (that was my dad's suggestion)

There will be a tensionor pully, that is a pulley that is connected to an arm that is spring loaded in order to produce tension on your belt. By releasing tension on this pully, you can remove the belt. The pulley will have a way to do this using hand tools. Most have either a bolt head you can grip with a pry bar and the appropriate size socket, some have a square hole where the socket - drive pry bar will fit directly, but the age old plain pry bar can be used by itself to release the tension. This should be done with two people if possible, one to release the tension while the other removes the belt...

The problem with your van is the CAM Sensor, I believe the noise you are hearing is kind of a chirping sound. I just had mine fixed (12/19/09) it was about $150 for parts and labor from a local Mech. not a dealer.

My 2001 Mustang 3.8 makes a lot of noise at high speeds. Even at an idle, the noise is noticeable and seems to be coming from the alternator/pully area. I have replaced both items and the belt itsel


You've looked at 2 things it drives, follow that round all units driven by the drive belt. Is it engine speed related? If so what can you hear under the hood when you rev up? If its not too difficult can you run the engine for a minute without the belt fitted. Don't run for long because of overheating. Listen then without all the bits rotating.

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)

What is adjusted in order to replace serpentine belt or tighten belt on 1997 GMC 454 3500 Truck? The air pump had siezed up- so I removed pulley and now have slack. Thanks in advance. Art


That serpentine belt system is designed to have all pulies in place.. The tention pully keeps it tight.. If you remove one of the pullies - the tention pully will not adjust that far..
The only options are - find a somewhat shorter belt with maching matching width and thickness.. Or replace the air pump..
Not the greatest news - I know.. But it is what it is my freind ;o)

Belt inst


For the 3.0L Vulcan, you have a tensioner that is located just below the power steering pully. Use a 15mm wrench or the 15mm shallow well socket that comes in a Serpentine Belt tool to push the tensioner toward the rear of the engine compartment. Take the old belt off and route the new belt. The belt begins at the crankshaft pully, goes under and around the a/c compressor, up around the power steering pump, around (with the flat edge) the idler pully, around the alternator, the flat edge then sits against the tensioner and back around to the water pump pully. You should have a belt routing diagram on the underside of the hood just above the serpentine pully assembly.

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.

V-6 engine noise


You could have a worn serpentine belt, and or bad idler pully bearing or a bad serpentine belt tensioner. With that anount of miles and years in the truck, it wouldn't hurt to change all. A good thing to check if it is the belt is to spray some water on the belt while the engine is running. If the noise goes away then it's your belt and while the belt is off, it's a good time to check the pully bearings.
Good luck and hope this helps.
