hey boys

i think i know the problem, but then again, im a noob to fords

sometimes 1/10 i think there is something wrong with my fan belt. i got the belt brand new about 2 months ago

at first i thought it was too loose, so when all that load is placed on it, it will just spin freely.. makes like a typical XF fanbelt noise.. but when i asked my uncle (machanic, but didnt fit it) he said they should be auto tightning...

i have changed 2 pullies and still the same problem.. any1 had any experiences with this?

i think he means that it sounds like the XF's as they used to have a habit of doing that! The belt on my EF (which i still haven't got round to replacing as it's cracked to s**t!!) is ribbed on the inside, i can't imagine an AU V8 belt not being similar. if it's like theat, i can't see how it would slip, unless it was WAAAAYY too loose

ok i didnt read properly i thought he was talking about an XF derr. the V8 belts look just like your 6 cyl belts, not too sure how the tensioner works on them though, havent seen one for a while

Actually you did read it properly...he didn't mention the vehicle type.
Anyway dj, it's sounds like the tensioner might have gone south. It's the one that looks like a short arm with a pulley on it. How much deflection do you get when you push on the belt?

Pete.

im not sure what your saying but if you can hear a noise when its on load it may be your engine mount is broken and the torque is lifting the engine and fan is hitting shroud slightly

just maybe

the noise could also be the traction control system (if it isn't a squealing noise) when you are accellerating hard off the line. Try turning the traction control off and then giving it a go.

On another note my BA wagon has had a slight belt slip since the day we got it, only when you are giving it a really hard time and you back off suddenly in first gear.

nah it happens when traction control is off..

soz i have a au fairlane 5ltr

lets say the noise is 'happening' if i keep the revs steady the noise continues.. if i press it more, the louder, but it duznt full stop unless i let go of the throttle compleatly (or put it into N)

the belt feels fairly tight when i push down on it, how much should the slack be?

roughly 3-5cms with normal force?

soz about spelling its 3am just got home, smashed.

being an au i belive its auto tensioner , if its loose the belt is had it if its a new belt the tensioner has packed it in. you should need to put a fair bit of force on the belt before you get much movement out of it. , even with a 3/8 drive breakerbar in the tensioner its still difficult to move it
