I have a 2008 Jeep Cherokee Laredo. I’m having issues with the serpentine belt. I tried to replace the belt, but one of the pulleys (dead center) is loose. Also, there seems to be a leak, potentially from the water pump? Just looking for any advice on how to repair this.


#2

There are u tube videos on how to replace the water pump & although I didn’t look , I’ll bet there are also videos on the serpentine belt & pulleys .


#3

I am internet paranoid but why do so many people put there whole name on open web sites?


#4

Re name, for me, I just didn’t think twice. My name is common, there are dozens in any city.


#5

I tend to agree with you

However . . . who’s to say that is actually his real name?

Sounds like the water pump bearing is toast, which is causing the pulley to wobble

As for the leak, that sounds like coolant is pouring out of the weep hole

I recommend either a mopar belt, or at least a gates.

Might be a good time to also replace the pressure cap and thermostat, along with that water pump, of course
