what is the year make and model?
what engine do you have?
its a 2003 Pontiac Montana with a 34
please stand by
your problem here may be the water pump itself
I have went through 3 bels
it would seem it may be locking up and causing it to burn off the belt
this may be why it is still getting hot also
check the belt tensioner pulley
but,,i would think you will need to replace the pump
The pumps pully is free spinning
but,,it may be locking for a while when it heats up
and the bearing gets hot
also,,the tensioner can do this
make sure the bearing is good in it also
also,,check the alternator
make sure all turns correctly
ok I changed out the tensioner new one of those
what is cpump
what is what?
the a/c compressor pump
sorry i wrote it that way
but,,i think it will end up being the water pump
