I'm having trouble figuring out why my Honda accords belts came loose. How much will it be to fix this problem? It started squeaking, and I turned it off. I turned it back on again and it started squeaking even louder and then shut down. What was wrong with my car?

Do you
have the same problem?

I honestly don't even know what went bad. But I do see that the crankshaft pulley is now loose. The belts didn't break but did come off.

Those crank bolts holding on the crankshaft pulleys are extremely tight. So whats loose the bolts or the pulley itself.

I can't see clearly but I think it's the crankshaft pulley itself, I can wiggle it with my hand. I'm not sure where the bolts are

Alright still doesnt tell me if the center bolt is loose or the crankshaft pulley is broken?Also if the tesioner pulley failed. So is something you were going to fix or have a shop repair?If the shop is going to repair it you will have to have it towed to the shop.

I can't see if the bolt is loose I haven't been able to do anything with my car becuz I don't have a jack or something to take the tire off to get a better look. I can't just see from where the good is at. 92253

Alright well guessing it just needs a crankshaft pulley and belt about 200 to fix it. This is just a guess without knowing what is for sure wrong with it.
