1989 Cadillac fleetwood. 307 olds motor.
my friends car is spueeking REALLY loudly. ive replaced both belts, the alternator, power steering pump, and water pump.
and it still squeeks. i took the fan off, thinking it might be clutch. but it still spueeks. and the alternator isnt charging as good as its 'post to.
the spueeking isnt my biggest problem, the powering steering belt gets HOT and then it brakes, and the pulley on the water pump gets hot,
im thinking its because the belt is slipping causing frixion. bacuse nothing else gets hot.
when running the car i noticed that the crank is spinning faster then the rest of everything else.and the two belts are spinning at different speeds.
the power steering belt is spinning slower then the alternator belt. but there coming off the same pulley. the only difference is that the powering steering belt goes to the crank to.
keep in mind that the only things that get hot are the water pump pulley and the power steering pump belt.
so is it posable that the pulley on the water can be bad??? (not the water pump it self) its brand new and it was spueeking before i put the new water pump on. so i dont think its a bad water pump.
can it be that the crank spins too fast???
has anybody ever had a brand new power steering pump go bad straight out of the box?
do i have to keep braking belts intil it brakes in, because the pulleys are too stiff???
