  1. How can I tell if water pump caused the belt chirping?

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    I had a new water pump put on two weeks ago. Now I have severe belt chirping. I'm not sure when the chirping started because you couldn't hear it from inside until this week, when it got much worse. It's not a bearing, as I did the water test (pour a few drops on the smooth side of the belt...

    Hi, I have a 3rd-generation 3.3L while my Haynes manual reports "a dynamic tensioner automatically maintains the correct belt tension". But I'm experiencing a noticeable squeak that seems to be coming from that area. It varies with engine speed and seems to be worse in the rain. It's not always...

    HI! I have a 2000 Plymouth Grand Voyager. 146,000 miles. I am the original owner. I never took it in to get the recall things fixed (clockspring and fuel rail) mostly for fear that as soon as I take it in to a dealership for the recall items something else will break. This past sunday we...

    I have a 2003 T&C with the 3.3L and I recently changed the serpentine belt. The Haynes book mentioned removing the belt splash shield in their step-by-step procedure, but on my van the crankshaft pulley and belt are exposed underneath and at the pass wheel well with no shield or cover. Since...
