Serpentine belt busted on my 2010 Ford Focus. It had melted onto the pulley, so I replaced both tensioner and idler pulleys, along with serpentine belt. Now when I start the car, it dies within 30 seconds, and starts smoking. Check engine light is on, which it wasn't before the belt broke. So is this just something I may have done wrong with either the pulleys or putting the belt on? I have been trying to get this fixed and drivable for 2 weeks and I'm so extremely frustrated. Help!

More than likely something is locked up. The generator is the best suspect. Loosen the belt again, then spin each pulley by hand to see which one is stuck.

What is smoking, the belt or something with the engine? Here is the serpentine belt diagram below. Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know what happens.

I couldn't tell; it seemed to be coming from down by the pulley. That's why I assumed I had done something wrong.

If I understand correctly, the belt was melted before you replaced parts. That tells me it's not that you did something wrong. It's that you didn't go far enough to find the cause of the problem. You only repaired the result.

Well that's not comforting :)
So what would be the cause of these problems? Any idea? It's very possible that I did something wrong. I had to YouTube directions for pulley and belt replacement to even get the job done. It took a full two days of frustration and meltdowns for me to get the belt on correctly. When I finally did it, I was so thrilled, and then the car died 20 seconds or so after I started it. Grrrrrr

I think our replies crossed in the mail. You don't have to remove the belt again. Just loosen it enough so you can spin each pulley by hand. Or you can watch for which one is not turning while a helper cranks the engine.

Concerns about the timing belt is the way I have a question. Can someone explain to me how to replace the in the Ford Focus? Maybe one of you has a description of the exchange or litter may be a link.

I recommend you buy a shop manual for it at a parts store, you will need the info to avoid damaging internal engine parts, and as a reference as you do the work.

I changed the alternator on the engine and when I
went to put the serpentine belt back it is too long.
It's like 6" or so too long now. I checked the routing
several times and it's too long. What did I do wrong?
