  1. Jeep CJ Forum
    Hi all, I'm trying to change my belts for my first time on my 1985 CJ7 Laredo 258 with a/c that has three V-Belts. A couple are glazing so figured it's better to do now than out in the desert. :grin2: The belts are independent (alternator doesnt have anything to do with a/c as far as I can tell...
  2. Jeep CJ Forum
    Hi everyone. I am starting to plan my winter Jeep Project(s) and I was hoping for some advice/counsel/whatever on two separate projects. 1. There is a squeak which seems to be coming right from my water pump. It is not the belt. I have tried every type of tightness on the alternator belt know...
  3. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    For a little while now, I would hear this obnoxious squeaking when I turned the engine over, and it would last for 3-10 seconds, or until I took my foot off the clutch and/or brake after starting my Jeep up. I finally got around to trying to diagnose this using the "squirt bottle" technique...

    Hey guys, So my buddy was driving down the street when the dash lit up like a christmas tree and everything went haywire. Well turns out the belt has somehow come loose and shredded itself into three ribbons where became tangled in the fan and crankshaft pulley. Today we managed to get the old...
  5. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I'm at a point in my JF membership where I hate posting new threads, but I can't find the information I need in my various talks with Professor Google and the rest of the interworld. What I'm trying to find out is if my 4.2 with A/C and serp belt is supposed to have idler pulleys. One to...
  6. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    This just happened to my buddy's 99 XJ: While driving down the street, he heard a clunking noise, but ignored it. He stopped a few minutes later and heard a bubbling noise. He still ignored it. He got back in and started driving and minutes later the dash lit up like a Christmas tree and his...

  9. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    :teehee:A while back, my old belt started squeaking and my charge gauge would dip down when it would squeak. The squeaking would go away and the charge gauge would go back to normal. We replaced the serpentine belt, didn't look TOO bad, a little worn, so just replaced it anyway. The water pump...

    Hey guys, I'm trying to diagnose horrible play i have in my 95 5.2 zj. It is completely stock suspension & steering. steering almost felt as if the wheel would move about two to three inches left or right before actually "catching" and steering. It never pulled to one side or shook, just a...
  12. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Back Story: I recently was stuck during the huge snow/ice storm that hit the Midwest a few weeks ago. After I was pulled out of the ditch, my belt squealed very loud. I notice that it was completely on one of the pulleys (that one that is no longer on). So I loosened the tensioner pulley (I...
  13. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    Ok guys, I can't get my belt off to save my life. I've loosened everything, the nuts on the front of the power steering pump, the one on the back, and the adjustment nut below the pump, facing the air box. It won't budge. Maybe I'm missing something, but every write up is telling me the same...

    I've got a 81 CJ7. i recently had a cracked power steering hose so i took off the power steering belt and drove it home. Then the next day i started the jeep and it was squealing really bad. I thought once i put the power steering belt back on it'd even out the tension being pulled from the fan...

    I have a 1995 Cherokee Sport with a 4.0. I recently had to replace the water pump, but now my issue is getting the serpentine belt back on. I loosened the nut underneath the pulley, and I turned the torquing bolt (which is also located underneath the power steering pump). Problem is, when I...

    When I start up my TJ it makes a weird squeaking sound. My buddy and I have determined its the belt. Is there any way it should be lubricated? Any advise is much appreciated.
