About one month ago I replaced a broken serpintine belt on a 97 Chevy Lumina. Yesterday the replaced belt. It was shreaded! I replaced the belt tensioner because it was damaged when the belt broke. I also looked at all the pulleys to see what might have caused this.
I discovered that the main pulley from the camshaft that drives the belt does not line up with with the other pulleys. I checked the pulley on the camshaft and it is tight.
I installed a new belt and can see that the belt does not ride on the camshaft pulley correctly.
Is the misalignment of the camshaft pulley normal? If not what would have caused this and what can be done to correct this?
Thank you for your answer!
have the same problem?
