just ran into a big problem.. i was almost home from a birthday party when my car started clicking like pastic was stuck in it. i just checked it out and the belt on the left side of the engine was not moving. i looked more into it, and there was a piece of wood and a melted pulley wheel. wth. what is this pulley?





i'm currently trying to pull it out because it's junk now. and i can't go to the scrapyard til tomorrow.

oh, also the car idles very low and lost the power steering.

It could be that the pulley was slipping and was burned by the belt, but I would have thought the belt would get much more of the damage. I don't really know.

BTW which pulley is it.

Yeah, you gotta drop the motor some.
Good luck with that. Not too hard

Use a jack to relieve some of the tension from your engine, undo the passenger mount, and slowly lower the engine, keeping it supported by the jack

me and a buddy of mine just figured it out. we put a block under the oil pan and hoisted it up a bit. not the best idea, i know, but it worked. tomorrow morning i'll pick up a new pulley.
