Yesterday while slowly pulling away from a stop sign, my water pump pulley broke away from its hub. I lost power steering, charging and of course engine cooling. Has anyone else experienced this? The pulley has the "Gates" logo stamped in it. There is 114,000 miles on the car. It is a 2008 LX.
So the past two days i've been working on replacing the ac pulley since the bearing is shot and the car grinds when running. Clutch came out with ease, but the pulley was a PITA.
I soaked it in WD40 and used a combination of pry bar, screw driver, and a hammer on screw driver / pry...
Is a new tensioner pulley suppose to have spin slower (or show some resistance) compared to a worn pulley? I know that's a rule of thumb on BMW puleys but not sure everyones experience on Honda.
Had these on when I had a 4 bannger accord with the k24a4 and notice that the car was lighter on its feet. So I decided to do the same for the CRV.
Bought some light weight pullies that is from a base RSX/tsx. Ralco and UR are good brands, but I am pretty sure they all come from the same...
'98 CRV Timing belt changed in 8/13. Told by independent mechanic that Honda must've over tightened the bolt when replacing the pulley as it NEVER/EVER should shear off (unless an accident and there wasn't one). The pulley was just banging around inside the car and the belt flopping. Drive belt...
I bought a set of ebay lightweight pulley. They are the 3 piece set but I am just going to be using 2/3 pulley since the alternator one is a pain in the ass to get to on these cars.
Easiest way to get the crank pulley bolt off is to pull the fuel pump fuse and put a 19mm impact stock on the...
Hello CR-V Gurus!
I've got a 2006 CR-V EX FWD that is starting to chirp or squeak. Not sure it is just the serpentine belt
or if maybe it could be the tensioner pulley? It has 135K miles. And It only does this when the motor is cold.
After it warms up the noise seems to disappear.
So I brought my 97 cr-v to the shop because the crank pulley was wobbling. I ended up replacing the serpentine belts, water pump, timing belt components, valve cover, and harmonic balancer. The problem is, the pulley still wobbles!
Does anyone have advice as to the problem before I get any...
