Hey guys, I have a 96 XJ 4.0 4x4 auto.
Last night on my way home theSerpentine Belt (less then 6 months old) fell off. When I got home I had rad fluid spewing out and the reservoir tank was full. Some time later, I put the belt back on and went to start it and the belt fell off, right away, secs. Tried it again and the same thing happen... It happens so fast I can not see what pulley it causing it.
After doing some research ....I see issues with the Harmonic Balancer can cause this, but I do not think that this is my case. It's not moved forward or back. Belt is in-line.
My question is: Can the Water Pump goes out and cause this? My pulley for the Water Pump is hard to turn and feels grinding.
Let me know what you think...
