Hi. I'm trying to replace the belt and having trouble finding the notch on the tensioner to attach a break out wrench or some other tool to release tension. The vehicle is a 1996 GMC Suburban K2500 7.4 liter Vortex engine with AC and approximately 140K miles. These are the best pictures I could manage given the tight clearance. Here, the tensioner can be seen below the alternator. Here are similar parts I found online, but not sure if they're the same exact part. If anyone has worked on one of these, I'd appreciate some suggestions.
The A/C belt in my 2004 Silverado 1500 4.8L snapped recently, and I believe it’s because one of the pulleys seized up. 2 days before the truck was making a relatively loud screech from the engine compartment at startup. The belt was a gator-type and installed on 12/10/17. I’m not an expert at engine repair, so what pulleys drive the A/C belt? And if one of them is truly seized, how do I properly fix it?
Hello All, I am new to the forums here and feel this would be a great place to get some info.. On my 2015 Sierra 1500 5.3L (23,000 miles) there is an interesting squeal/squeak noise that I hear on cold starts in the mornings. When the engine is warm or once the weather warms up throughout the day, the start up squeak is gone. It's been going on at least twice a week for the past year and it hasn't really bugged me until now. It could possibly be the belt or a pulley.. I am very well aware of the natural noises that these direct injection engines make (the ticking of the injectors, the cranking sound on start up, etc). I will put up a link to my youtube video of the truck making the noise. (Hopefully the link works). The squeal is right at the 4 second mark. Truck is under warranty and the guys down at my dealership are good to work with so if I have to bring it in I will.. I would just like to not have to deal with coordinating my schedule, obtaining a loaner, etc.. Any input would be great.. Thanks everyone!!!
