1994 Mazda MX3 Repair Question
Belt keeps breaking
It sounds like one of the pulleys is frozen and not turning. Or there may be a serious misalignment of the pulleys.
all the pullys spin freely
every things fine till i drive it after i drive it it squeals and then i smell that burnt rubber smell i tighten it then its fine for a few days then breaks then belt looks mangled and theres rubber shaving every where
That tells me that something isn't turning freely. Squealing is usually due to a loose belt. The burning belt is usually due to either too much tension or a pulley that is either misaligned or not turning.
is there a bearing in the middle pully theres a bit of play on it and it makes a funny noise when it spins about 3times around
its the water pump pulley the pulleys fine im going to replace the waterpump ill keep you informed
Ok. Looking forward to it.
it was the bearing on the water pump spent of 100.00 bucks in belts to figure that out
Word to the wise: Check all pulleys for free spinning and bearing play when replacing belts. Lesson learned, hopefully. Happy Holidays.
it did spin freely but had a rubbing sound after the 3rd or 4th spin around
