I know that for the last :>58,000 miles is has been well taken care of. : : Hmmm... 2.3 ? Not my motor, but I think that you still have the "upper : idler pulley" issue. The serpentine belt runs across two idler : pulleys. The upper one wears out somewhere after 45K miles. If yours : has more than 45K miles, you should replace it and the serp belt. : If the pulley goes or the belt breaks, you will be stuck and calling a : tow truck. About $35 for the pulley and belt at the dealer or try : A nice DAY job. Some folks do the lower : pulley too but it's more if a PITA. I might do it at 89K. Yep, the 2.3 has this issue. I had the upper idler pulley disintegrate on me within a month after I got mine (used). -- agreenbu Return to Main Index
