Automatic belt tensioner-4.7L engine

On 4.7L engines, the tensioner is equipped with an indexing tang on back of tensioner and an indexing stop on tensioner housing. If a new belt is being installed, tang must be within approximately 24 mm (.94 inches) of indexing stop. Belt is considered new if it has been used 15 minutes or less.

If the above specification cannot be met, check for:

  • The wrong belt being installed (incorrect length/ width)
  • Worn bearings on an engine accessory (A/C compressor, power steering pump, water pump, idler pulley or generator)
  • A pulley on an engine accessory being loose
  • Misalignment of an engine accessory
  • Belt incorrectly routed.

NOTE: A used belt should be replaced if tensioner indexing arrow has moved to the minmum tension indicator. Tensioner travel stops at this point.
