Water Pump Pulley 5.3
Michaelavh posted a topic in 2019-2023 Silverado & Sierra TroubleshootingGood evening, I have 2020 Chevy Trailboss 1500 5.3 I recently ran into the issue of the water pump pulley breaking and wanted to see if anybody knows if it’s possible to just change out the pulley or would I have to change out the whole water pump?
ZPE GripTec Pulley MP-TVS
Mileguru posted a topic in For Sale/WantedThis is a brand new 2.8 inch (71.12 mm) 6-rib pulley that I have to take a loss on. I installed it, turned on the engine, threw the belt, and realized that the offset was wrong for my blower (which meant this pulley stuck out too far and misaligned my belt). Oh well, can't dwell over it, just gotta sell it. So yes, this pulley has ZERO miles on it. If you don't know about GripTec pulleys, here is the link to the one I am selling. Basically, the ribs and grooves are roughed up like sandpaper so there is less belt slip, less knock, and more boost.

Chevrolet1698 posted a topic in Gen III and IV Small Block & DrivetrainThe 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!!!
I am replacing my belt tensioner. I can not find a place where it is bolted in. I thought that it was right in the middle of the actual tensioner but it's not. It look like there is some very large screw? Which nothing else I read or watched mentioned
Hello, my name is Kyle. I am new to GM-Trucks.com and am just starting to really get into do it yourself projects. I will be taking my 1987 GMC S15 pickup down to florida next week for the Daytona 500 from New Jersey. But first I need to replace the belt tensioner. I understand the part of taking it off and putting the new one on but in videos I keep watching them keep mentioning something about the torque when I tighten the new tensioner. When tightening it I don't just tighten it with a socket? I need a torque wrench? Any help or tips you guys or girls can provide me with for this project would be greatly apprciated. Thanks!!!
nbkratzer posted a topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500I have a 2006 Sierra, 4.8 litre. It recently developed a squel, that sounds like a belt squel. I checked the belts, and they are fine. I removed all the belts and started the truck, and it still makes the noise, the only thing turning is the crankshaft balancer. So, I've pretty much decided that the crankshaft balancer pulley has to be the problem. Would any of you have any other thoughts on possible causes. My Dad seems to think that it could have something to do with the timing chain. I'm really hoping that it's only the balancer pulley. Thoughts?
