If priority is designed into hybrid systems like yours, a cut off is established to separate hybrid functions from interfering with normal gas engine operations. If the clutch gets stuck when you try to shift into gear your trans if probably going out! What appeared unusual to me was the failure of my 12 volt battery while I was driving the car on a long trip. Rate the quality of this post and help vasy reputation points. If existing timing belt is being reused, install belt in proper rotation direction marked prior to removal. Release the tensioner, slip the belt from the remaining pulleys then remove it from the engine compartment Route the new belt around the pulleys, according to the belt routing guide. Rotate the tensioner pulley one more turn to allow the new belt to slip under the tensioner pulley.
This will show you the bolt that holds the idler pulley in place. It would work sometimes but once it heated up i wouldn't be able to move at all. Make sure the V-grooves make proper contact with the pulleys. Rate the quality of this post and help fdryer reputation points. Rate the quality of this post and help fdryer reputation points. Do not move camshaft or crankshaft once timing marks have been correctly positioned. Try to keep it from falling off other pulleys.

It has always been my priority to fix my own cars if it can be done without any special tools or equipment I will do it. So it was probably due to the old age of the battery. Using this reasoning, if the hybrid battery fails then circuitry detects this to disable support and reduces or eliminates circuits that need hybrid battery operation without affecting main power, the gas engine and its electrical generator to supply all electrical power.
So here is my question, if the hybrid battery fails due to a temperature issue, battery voltage imbalance between battery cells or other failure issues will the car continue to run in gasoline mode? Unfortunately when my 12 volt battery died the dealership provided no indication that the problem was due to the hybrid system. I Hope This Help's As It Is Important To Keep All Receipts!! You first have to put a socket and breaker bar on the pulley to remove the tension, then remove belt from tensioner pulley. So, whether or not the car will carry on with just the gas engine is dependent on the nature of the hybrid system failure. If deflection is not correct, repeat from tensioner installation. If the measurement is not 3. The serpentine belt drive is located on the front of the engine on the passenger side of the engine compartment.
Now at about 116k miles. Since you had a check engine light, your car must have had codes. Are they nickel metal hydride or lithium? Most battery-related faults will set codes ranging from P1A22 to P1A59. If the belt must be repositioned, release the tensioner and reposition as needed. Turn crankshaft so that timing mark on timing belt pulley is aligned with timing mark on engine.
While holding the tensioner back, remove the belt from one of the pulleys. I am an owner of a 2007 Saturn Vue Hybrid that has 110,000 miles. The systems seems to disable 12v battery charging if it detects hybrid issues. No matter the situation, Advance Auto Parts has the Alternator product you desperately need. It is now out of warranty and my financial responsibility to pay for the hybrid and gasoline repairs.
With luck, the vehicle might continue to run for 30 to 60 minutes on the 12-volt battery before it dies and everything shuts down. Replace any component that shows damage, excessive wear, or that appears prone to a possible failure. Replace timing belt if it is contaminated with oil or grease. Feb 06, 2011 Open the hood and locate the belt tensioner. Tightening torque:28~38 lb-ft 38~51 N·m, 3.
If they are not aligned, remove timing belt and start process from tensioner installation. Install timing belt guide plate and crankshaft pulley. Inspect both idler pulley and tensioner pulley for uneven wear and smooth bearing operation. I would think hybrid batteries would last longer than car batteries. What, if any, lifetime was given for them? With out the code, it is hard to even guesstimate why. Click the reputation button near the bottom left corner of this message box.
