i have a 95 taurus with a 3.0 in it... would i be able to get a fan belt to fit a car without a/c and just bypass the pulley? because i dun have the money to buy a new compressor so i just want to not use it.
Yes, you should be able to bypass the compressor. All G2 taurii came with A/C, so you will have to go to a parts store and tell them specifically what you are doing. I believe that rangers could come without A/C, so you might want to cross-reference them. Rangers use the same 3.0L "Vulcan" engine that you have.
so without even taking out the a/c compressor or pulley i can use a fan belt frum a ranger without a/c to fit on my car? cuz i don't wanna have to customize it to fit.. i don't have alotta time to work on it.
would i be better off just buying a belt that is supposed to go on my car? then just see if the compressor is wut messed up my old one?
the belt just wore down i believe... because there wuz no trace of the a/c not working. the compressor just makes a noise like poprocks in ur mouth kinda sound i guess... i brought it to the dealership but they said the whole works for the a/c so i'm gonna bring it to a mechanic n see wut they say cuz the dealership tells u everything that looks like it has a little bit of wear on it.. so my fan belt finally gave out tho.. it snapped as i was turning a corner so it wuz hard to turn with no power steering.. the car is parked about a blcok away frum my g/f's house on the wrong side of the street.. o well.. i put a sign on it saying it'll be moved asap because it doesn't run. i think i'll just buy the stock belt to fit it because at $50 a belt i don't wanna mess around too much.
Yes, you can do that. The best way to find out the length is to use a piece of string, wrapped around the pulleys like a belt, then mark the string. Your mark will be your new belt length. As long as there's a belt available, you should have no problems with doing this.
thats a good idea... hopefully they'll have a belt that size n hopefully the a/c pulley don't get in the way... if the belt wuz a little too big.. not by much but just a little would the tensioner fix it at all n make it fit right?
