How To Install Replace Serpentine Belt Silverado Sierra Tahoe Yukon 4.8L 5.3L 6.0L - 1AAuto.com




What do you think about this video?

TheFiresteedfarm: Thank you. This video was really helpful. Carol

William Carlin: Great video! You said to put the belt on over the altenator. I found it much easier to roll it over the idler pulley. It had no grooves and spun more freely! Hope this helps others out It did me!

BANDERASM6: Very good!!

1A Auto Parts: @tayagirl2020 I would have both the battery and the alternator tested to see if they're working correctly. It sounds as though you may just have a bad battery. A serpentine belt that needs to be replaced, shouldn't have any effect on the charging the battery as long as it is not slipping and still properly routed through the pulley system. Hope this helps you out.

1A Auto Parts: You're welcome. Have a great day! 1aauto.com

1A Auto Parts: @STONEYCLAW You could try a shorter serpentine belt, but you might not have enough room to bypass the A/C compressor.

Cassie L: Question for you. I have a 5.3L V8 Vortec Engine model LM7. I cannot for the life of me find out the timing specs. Does this engine need to be re-timed? or does it some how do it on it's own? As you cannot tell...I am a noob with my engine....I have heard that Vortec's cannot be timed due to being non-adjustable

1A Auto Parts: @evilash2000 You're welcome. Thank you for checking us out. Have a great day!

tomas netro: i just got a truck & i want to know what the name of the part thats under the plastic lid that says vortec on top of the engine

VajraCoyote: @1aau youtube.com/watch?v=m8VGD-7iLyE Thanks for the information hook-up. This was a forty-five minute job thanks to you.

BANDERASM6: Thank you very much sir. This video is very good it help my father change his belt in his Tahoe normally I would have done it for him but his in another state now, so I found this video and I send it to him it help him a lot he was able to do it him self thanks to this video

Joseph McCranie: Thank you. This was the best video I could find for how that pully loosens

1A Auto Parts: @VajraCoyote It depends on what type of truck you have. Most of them only have one bolt that holds the serpentine belt tensioner in place. First you would need to remove the belt to relieve the pressure off of the tensioner, then you should be able to remove the bolt that holds the tensioner on.

1A Auto Parts: @toboe399 We currently do not have an auto repair video for this particular repair. You may want to check a service manual or something like a Haynes manual. There should be a topic on it in either of those books. Hope this helps you out.

mitch webster: do you have a video on a coolant flush and coolant replace on 5.3 vortec engines in a silverado 2004.

Ane Josh: Can you guys please make a video of replacing a power steering pump on a 97 Tahoe?

1A Auto Parts: @kromjuana Thank you for visiting our YouTube channel.

tayagirl2020: i died out in the tahoe with a dead battery, we boosted and it took me home but died out again. i was told at the last oil change the serpentine belt needed to be changed. could the serpentine belt be the cause of the tahoe dying on me?

John Geoduck: Great video. All of the people attempting this should know there are different length belts depending on the alternator you have. Look for the code on the parts sticker located in your glove compartment to identify the type of alternator you have. Here are some of the common alternator codes: 8A5, 8C0, K98, KG9 - 140 amp 8C6, KG3 - 145 amp 8C7, KG4, KG5 - 150 amp

1A Auto Parts: If the belt has cracks all over the place (usually you can see them on the ribbed part), them it should be replaced so that it doesn't break on you.

illinoisphil: Thanks for the upload. I see why you wore those latex gloves now lmao.#greazy

1A Auto Parts: We currently do not. We'll keep this request in mind in the event that we need to perform this repair in the future. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

rmartin70: I just replaced my serpentine belt in my 2002 Yukon. I had bought the belt a few years ago but didn't need it until now. I had a hell of a time getting it over the alternator pulley.. After I started the vehicle it ran very rough for about 5 seconds and then smoothed out, however the service engine light came on. i disconnected the neg battery wire and the light did not come back on. Could the light have come on because the belt was so tight? It is the correct belt I checked twice.

1A Auto Parts: @BANDERASM6 Thank you for checking us out. Have a great day!

eebkal: Looking to do this on my 5.3 GMC. Thanks for the video, and all your videos! Very helpful.

Austin Bishop: When my 408l vortec in my Silverado runs it sounds like a jet engine, I.E. a whirring type sound. Is this most likely the serpentine belt?

William Kennard: MY A/C COMPRESSOR IS NO GOOD DO NOT HAVE FUNDS TO FIX IT 500.00 CAN I PUT A SHORTER SERPENTINE BELT ON TO BYPASS THE A/C 1999 SILVERADO 2500 HELP

Cassie L: @1aauto yes it is, now i just need to figure out my electrical issue

evilash2000: Man you saved me!!! i pulled off the belt without checking that the diagram was still visible and of course it was worn out..Thank You very much!!!!!!!

1A Auto Parts: We'll keep this in mind during any future repairs. Thanks for watching. 888-844-3393

Josh Gorman: i just replaced my a/c serpentine belt and this video made it extremely simple to remove both belts and replace them saving me $ 200. thanks

1A Auto Parts: It sounds like you're referring to the intake.

mharrop396: helped me ...thanks

ken ddd: Nice

1A Auto Parts: @rmartin70 They usually can fit snug but shouldn't be super tight either. If the light comes on again, you may want to have the code read to see what it's pointing to.

gugs76: Thanks for posting this video. I didn't know how to install the belt in my 08 Tahoe. Never did it before on any vehicle. I was stuck until I saw this video. Saved me a lot of time and money. Thanks again.

1A Auto Parts: It may have been a defective belt.

Cassie L: @1aauto Just wanting to make sure I Didn't need to re-time my engine. I just replaced the belt, and all seems well

Pablo Perez: My 2000 Chevy Silverado is making a squeaky sound, i was told that i need a new belt,you think the reason it makes the squeaky sound is because i need a new belt. Or could it be one of the pulleys or the tensioner?

1A Auto Parts: We currently do not have a video that shows this particular repair. We'll keep this in mind during any future repairs.

1A Auto Parts: Thanks for visiting our channel John.

revisionxvideo: Great video - made swapping the serpentine belt on my 2000 Silverado 5.3L V8 nice and easy. Thank you very much for taking the time to video the procedure.

1A Auto Parts: It could be a couple of things. Normally a noise like that is from an exhaust leak. A squealing noise is what you would hear when the belt starts to go

Xeno Rowing Coach: great thank you! What is the second belt for? Cheers, Xeno

Zachary Upham: hey im having some serpentine belt issues on my gmc 1500 Sierra. I changed the belt becuase it was trashed and full of cracks and lost a whole rib off the belt, but about 50 kms after i changed the belt the new one spilt in half down the ribs of the belt. Ive checked all the pulleys and none of them seem to have an excessive amount of play. Do you have any idea what could have destroyed my belt?

1A Auto Parts: @toboe399 It should be fine if you just replaced the belt.

John Jay: att will not run fast enough for these great videos,,, Great work 1a just a note ( it may have been mentioned in video) Most chevy belt tensioners are weak and short lived and often responsable for premature wear. So it is a good Idea to replace the tensioner with a good after market one.
