Need to tighten that loose fan Belt? don't use a screwdriver to hold the pulley - get the correct tool for the job! Keep in mind that correct fan belt attachment is essential to keep your engine running cool. It is nearly impossible to obtain the correct tension on the fan belt pulley without this tool. Before you purchase one from us though, make sure that you check the factory tool kit that came with the car - there should be one in there. Important Tip: The pulley and fan belt must use six shims at all times, either on the inside or the outside. Make sure that you place the extra shims on the outside. If you don't, then the nut will bottom out and the fan belt will not tighten properly, no matter how hard you try.
Has it been a while since you replaced your belts? Replace them before you get stranded, get two and keep a backup in the trunk.
If you are opting to save money by working on your car yourself, it is a very wise investment to have the proper tools. Some tasks may be nearly impossible to perform without the specific tool designed to assist you in the process. Don't cheap out - you're saving money by doing it yourself. Do it right with the right tools. Some tools may be special order, and may take a few days to be shipped out.
