Ok yes i am new but i have done my research on this problem and tried it all. First the car:
2004 Dodge Neon SRT-4 Stage 3 W/Toys.
Only mods i can think of that would have an affect on anything do this is i have the Wishbone motor mounts(may not be relevant).
Sources i have read and tried:
Serpentine Belt pop off?
How-To: Replace Power Steering Pump
Ok so forth and so on.
The so called fix:
I was at the track(long story short) came off the line wheel hopped and broke and axel and broke the P/S reservoir. Ok went to a dodge dealership and paided $400 for a brand new pump.
One week later got on it in full boost and BAM the pulley shattered. Took it back off and returned it(gotta love warrenty work)and got a new one Installed it and then done some further inspection.
The belt is riding and actually pulling off the side of the pump. So i beat my crank pulley on checked my A/C brackets and all is good. Upon further inspection my P/S reservoir is actually hitting or not hitting but rubbing on my intake manifold. It hasnt busted or anything yet because i havent got on it any(dont want to risk messing another one up)thing like that.
Belt is sitting about a 1/4 inch to towards the passenger side and trying to come off. It hasnt yet but before too long it will shread the belt. and the reservoir is touching my intake manifold.
???? I have tried bending the brack and that didnt work out too well. I replaced the tensioner and still no help. Installed a new belt nothing.
What i need:
I need to know what to do to fix this problem. It really isnt a big deal but i dont want to take the risk of breaking the pulley or shreading a belt(again).
I would greatly appreciate any and all help. Thanks guys and gals.
Here are some pics to clear things up a little bit...
Oh yes and is is possible that i could get a spacer made? i have a friend who can make one he just needs the measurements. But i would still prefer to get it fixed the right way. And if anyone has had this problem and made a spacer send me the specs you used. Thanks again.
