I just picked up a 99 Sable with the Duratec DOHC
Is there a Serpentine belt that I can use to bypass the AC
Anyone know what length I could use or what part number?
I picked this up from my In-Laws, 'If I can fix it I can have it"
The symptom they said was all the electric started to shut down, sounded to me like the alternator was not charging and when the battery finally gave out it just shut down.
I pulled the Alternator out (kind of a pain!) and it tested fine.
Looking at the rest of the system the AC
Compressor is locked up, which apparently is what caused the original serp belt to break.
Before throwing money into replacing any of the AC
parts I would like to run the engine without the compressor to ensure there are no other gremlins causing other issues.
Anyone have any thoughts on a belt?
