Re: 1995 3000gt overheating need help

The people bypassing it have probably deleted their AC.

Re: 1995 3000gt overheating need help

can I go without replacing the alt/ac tensioner pulley? my voltage is normal when I get in it in the morning. when I stop like a stop light is only time voltage goes down. what damage will happen if I just leave it seized up? can I run my a/c without a new one?if it wont mess anything up ill just leave it for now.

Voltage drop at a stop light is normal. If your idle is low from a bad IAC that will make the voltage drop more prevalent.

If the pulley truly is seized though I would get it replaced. It could burn the belt up which in turn could cause it to shred, which could wrap around the crank pulley and make the car jump time. I have seen it happen more than once.

yes, if pulley is seized the belt would have gone up in smoke in a couple minutes or running

Re: 1995 3000gt overheating need help

Generally speaking, running without an idler pulley is a bad idea. The idler pulley maintains tension on the belt to keep it from slipping on the other pulleys. When belts are too loose they wear out faster, the idler pulley is usually adjustable so the belt can be kept tight through normal wear and tear.

Re: 1995 3000gt overheating need help

Considering you need the alternator to drive the car, and you need the tensioner to tighten the belt, there is no way you can run the car unless you replace the tensioner and belt.
