Customer Question

Hi! We bought a used jeep it's a 1996 Jeep Cherokee sport but has a 1995 engine... it has 8 pulleys and we can't find a diagram to replace the serpentine belt that broke yesterday.
JA: How many miles are on the car?
Customer: 248000 on the odometer but 85000 on the new engine
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: My husband is a ASE mechanic and he can't find this diagram anywhere. He works at the Honda dealership.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: All the diagrams we have found have only seven pulleys but this engine has 8
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Jeep Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Do you still need help?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
as the first person couldnt help.
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 7 months ago.

Are you able to upload an actual picture of the front of the engine?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
The mechanic at jeep told us that the 95 is the only year that they put an 8th pulley on the engine and he printed us out the routing diagram.
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 7 months ago.

You did get the correct one then? I went through Wrangler, Cherokee and Grand Cherokee diagrams from 1993-1996 and wasn't able to find exactly what you were showing.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
The mechanic at the Jeep dealership said he'd only seen once in his career of working on jeeps. the pulley is only used to keep more tension on the belt.

You did get the correct diagram then?
