      Serpentine belt routing: Anyone got a pic or diagram?

      I'm trying to reassemble everything under the hood of my newly aquired Aveo. Since I didn't take it apart myself, its proving to be a nitemare. Anyone have a pic or diagram of the accessory belt? I need to figure out the locations of the idler and tensioner pully and the routing of the belt. Thanks!

      How, pry tell, did you have someone else take it apart and not put it back together?

      I thought there was a diagram on the underside of the hood... must be mistaken... I'll try to find one and post it up...

      Good drawing. The smallest pulley in the middle is your tensioner. to loosen it up so you can slide the belt over it, put a socket on it and basically act as you are tightening the bolt and it will move the tensioner over so you can slide the belt on.

      Good luck.

      Are you sure? That's what I figured myself, but the belt is still loose. I see the tensioner, but shouldn't there be an idler pulley in there somewhere? Maybe I have the wrong damn belt...



      Anyway, I was given the car by a neighbor's kid in trade for some motorcycle parts and tools. He started to tear down the engine after the timing belt snapped at 70,000 miles, but got in too far over his head for his mechanical abilities. Now, here I am stuck with a basket case and no repair manual

      Adding water to oil does NOT clean your engine, It reshapes connecting rods.
