Ford F-150 Serpentine Belt Replacement Instructions


Filed Under (Ford) by admin on 20-02-2012

Replacing the serpentine belt on a Ford F150 requires loosening the serpentine belt tensioner. Nevertheless, depending in your particular model, you will have to take away a number of elements–and use special tools–to take away the belt.

1. Park your Ford F150 on a safe place and open the hood.
2. Place a drain pan below the engine within the path of the upper radiator hose, where it connects with the radiator, in case you have the 7.3L engine model. Remove the radiator clamp using a Phillips screwdriver or ratchet and socket. Twist and pull the hose off the radiator fitting. Go to Step 6.
3. Take away the cooling fan mounting bolts using a ratchet and socket when you have a 6.0L engine model. Then take away the four cooling-fan stator mounting bolts using a ratchet and socket and remove the stator. Go to Step 6.
4. Take away the air duct from the air cleaner assembly if you have a 5.4L or 6.8L engine model. Go to Step 6.
5. Remove the fan meeting you probably have a 4.6L engine model. Use special Ford fan instruments 303-240 and 303-239 to take away the fan (see Ideas). Move the fan meeting over the radiator shroud, away from the engine.
6. Take away the serpentine belt from the engine. On the 4.2L engine, rotate the serpentine belt tensioner counterclockwise utilizing a wrench and take away the belt; on the 4.6L engine, rotate the belt tensioner clockwise using a breaker bar with a 1/2 drive and remove the belt; on the 5.4L and 6.8L engines, rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise using a wrench and remove the belt; on the 6.0L engine, rotate the belt tensioner clockwise using a breaker bar with a 1/2 drive and remove the belt; on the 7.3L engine, rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise using a breaker bar with a half drive and take away the belt.

1. Route the brand new serpentine belt over the accent pulleys, besides the tensioner pulley, on all engine models. Rotate the tensioner pulley–in the same course you turned it for serpentine belt removal–and slide the belt over the tensioner pulley. Be certain the belt is properly routed and seated on each accessory pulley.
2. Install the fan meeting when you have the 4.6L engine; install the air duct if in case you have the 5.4L or 6.8L engine; set up the cooling-fan stator and fan, if you have the 6.0L engine; and set up the upper radiator hose when you’ve got the 7.3L engine model.
3. Add coolant to the coolant reservoir to convey the extent between the “Add” and “Full Sizzling” marks, if you have the 7.3L engine. Start the engine and let it attain working temperature. Add extra coolant as necessary and switch off the engine.

2005 GMC Sierra 5.3L 4 WD, Dex Cool … Had coolant leak at both gaskets to the block. Leaks are gone (at least there are no more puddles) Replaced coolant pump about 10 days ago, but that coolant smell is still around. No noticeable coolant loss. Should I wash down the engine? What with?

I am looking to top off the coolant in my 2001 Chevy Cavalier. I have heard bad things about Dex-Cool, but I’m afraid to mix coolants and possibly cause problems that way. What type of coolant was originally installed in my Cavalier? Do I have to use the same type of coolant, or can I switch?

We’ve been having an overheating problem with a car and someone told us some crap could’ve gotten into the water jackets when we had head work done and that we could get some stuff to add to the coolant to clean it out, but they didn’t specify as to what we should add. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My serpentine belt on my 2005 Ford Taurus broke because the AC compressor went out. I was wondering how much it generally costs to have a mechanic replace the compressor and the belt.

My serpentine belt broke today, and I have to get the whole thing replaced (the tensioner and all). What are some of the main problems associated with the belt itself? I know my car has a horrid time inbetween gears and it usually fixes itself after about 10 minutes of driving revving high and then the belt squeals and it drives fine. Today on my way to Washington, DC from Delaware it just BROKE! So, I wanna know, what can go wrong with a bad belt/tensioner/assembly?
The car is a 1999 Hyundai Sonata GLS. When I got it in 2005, it was already a POS, and I drive it from Delaware to Virginia and back once a week for my job (which puts about 300 miles on it a week). I keep up on regular maintainence as much as my buget can afford, but this has been a problem for a while. It kicks and knocks, has a loud whiring sound (not the squeeling a belt would normally make) and my RPMs stay around 4 instead of between 1-2 like it normally does.

I’ve had the coolant level warning come up several times for the past few months, but never had the chance to get it serviced. Would it be bad that my coolant level is running low but my temperature is the same?

I posted a Q last night, but I have more info today! I have a 1998 Ford Explorer- 2 WD, V6 4.0 liter engine-keyless entry (they asked all that at the parts store). After some diagnostics, we believe the serpentine belt tensioner needs to be replaced but I can not find any info online as to whether this is a DIY type job. Can anyone help me (and my poor husband) on this? Is this an easy repair job?

Here was my original Q:

My car is making a high pitched whiny kinda squealing noise! When I left home, it
started this high pitched squeal….then stopped…drove about 60 miles…It sat for about two hours in a parking lot. On the way home, it started that noise
and never stopped…Just as I was turning into the subdivision, my radio quit and
my lights went real dim on my dash…the ABS light came on…pulled in the drive…
turned it off and waited a second, tried to turn it back on and it just clicked…dead

Thank you SO much for all the help last night and any today!

It seems like the “Check Coolant” message is displayed too frequently, and I have to add water too often. What is the normal frequency for adding coolant to a car?
Oh-Oh: In response to the first answer, which was very good, I should also ask what happens if you just use water? I add water (just water) probably every once a week or every two weeks. Could I have damaged anything by not using coolant?

I already changed coolant few weeks ago, should I also do the radiator flushing? I think they are pretty much the same.

You fill your car with coolant, not water right? The water I put in the wiper fluid servers no other purpose than to clean the windshield right?
The water I place in the wiper fluid reservoir serves no other purpose than to clean the windshield right?

I have a cracked head in my car and people say its because I haven’t been giving my car water, but I have no water reservoir?

I have a coolant reservoir that I check regularly, no water reservoir though.

I am running low on coolant in the engine now, can I fill it up with a different coolant I have in my garage? I have a Dodge Grand Caravan. Thanks.

I broke the bottom off of the extra coolant tank on my ’00 Chevy Metro. It’s snowing here right now, so I’m not too worried about overheating, and I’ve just been driving with the heater full blast to pull any extra heat out of the engine. I have the replacement part already, but I just haven’t had time to put it in myself.

Will I risk permanently damaging the car by driving it in this condition?

How to drain and refill coolant on a 2005 sienna Toyota mini van after you change out the radiator ?

I have a 91′ cutless supreme, and my “low coolant” light came on about two weeks ago! I have no Idea about cars, since this is my first car. I am also totally broke so I didn’t want to take it to a mechanic if it is something I be able to fix myself. If there is a need to put fluid in, how, what and where would I put it in? Thank you!

I have to top up my coolant in my car as the light has come on. I bought a coolant/anti freeze from halford but it says I have to dilute it with water before putting it in my car. What is the appropriate mix? half water half coolant? also, do I need to drain the coolant in my car at the moment or can I just top it up?

My car computer recently chirped up with ‘Coolant Low’, so I need to top it up. What kind of coolant should I use, what even is coolant? Would just normal water work?

What kind of coolant should I get, is their a certain kind?

Also is Antifreeze/Coolant the same thing?

My Volvo 850 coolant indicator light comes on occasionally.

The heat gauge is up a little more than usual.

The reservoir has some coolant in it.

I noticed that there is no radiator cap.

I also noticed the sticker says to only use Volvo coolant. Is that true?

With fluid in the reservior why would the indicator light be coming on?

If not then how is coolant used to keep the engine from overheating? Thanks
How often do i need to replace my coolant? Also if you don’t mind can you tell me how often I should replace my brake oil and power steering fluid as well? Thanks.

I recently had some invasive repairs done on my car: replacing sensors in the EVAP system so the car would pass smog (CA). They also replaced the themostat because it was cracked while doing the repairs. 2 weeks later my coolant reservoir cracked (5 holes altogether) and my engine overheated, the coolant leaking freely from the bottom of the engine.

Are there any causes such as too much engine pressure or improperly working thermostat, ECT sensor, etc, that could cause such drastic damage?

If they were all over the engine doing a “smoke test” to find the problems in the EVAP system, wouldn they have noticed an old or damaged coolant reservoir?

The car is a 2000 BMW 323, and we’ve never had any issues with the vehicle until taking it to this garage. I think we’re getting screwed over here. Any info that would be helpful is much appreciated.


My coolant light came on in my car and I just want to know if I can still drive it a few miles before replacing the coolant, or if I should not drive it anywhere.

My Carolla is running low on coolant. I liquid is pink in color, but other than that, I’ve no idea what brand or type it is.

I had a coolant leak when a pipe burst and now the whole engine of my car has white deposits from the coolant all over the car. Please tell me how to take this stuff off w/ o hurting the car?

Can you just add the coolant into the cooling system or do you HAVE TO drain it out first? Is draining a necessity?

I need to add coolant to it and I would like to do it myself but looking at the tank I realized I might be too dumb to figure out how to open it. It doesn’t look like I could just twist it off, but I might have been too scared and stupid to do that.

Does anyone know the original coolant and power steering fluid color for Mazda year 1999 626 V6?
Power Steering fuid is at the word min and it is slightly higher when it is warm. Should I need to add Power Steering fluid? Can I use Power Sterring fluid from Perstone?
Power Steering fluid is at the word “min” and it is slightly higher when it is warm. Should I add Power Steering fluid? Can I use Power Steering fluid from Perstone?

Put coolant in and the coolant light stays on and the coolant disappears in what seems like a matter of days.
What does the sensor look like if there is one on my car though ?

I am about to take my car out of town and my coolant level is low. I was just going to top it off but wasn’t sure about mixing new coolant with old coolant. I know what type I should use, but wasn’t sure about mixing. Any help is appreciated and if you have a link to an outside reference, even better. Happy Holidays.

Today I noticed that a significant amount of engine coolant is missing from the tank which means there’s probably a leak somewhere. I have quite the busy schedule and loosing my car for more than a day is just not an option.

I don’t know too much about engine coolant but it seems to me that water should be fine during the summer just not winter because it can freeze. Is this correct?

Also, any ideas off the top of your head where this leak might me comming from?

(1995 Pontiac Bonneville SE)

I actually use water for my radiator. Adding only a 120ml of Whiz coolant on it. After reading from on-line helps, I’ve learned that water should not be used. Does this means I should fill my radiator with coolants only or is there a ratio for water:coolant proportioning. Thanks for the help.

My assembled jeep uses a Toyota 4K engine.

My sisters 2000 monte carlo has oil seeping through the coolant hoses. How do I find out if it is transfluid from the cooler in the radiator or oil from the engine. The resevior coolant is clean and under the radiator cap is thick sludge.

Where you put the coolant water to keep the engine temperature ok. Do you have to put flush liquid in it? Or how often drain and fill?
