does anyone know,or maybe heard about any condition on the 1.6 8 valve motors that makes them eat the fan belt......

every thing is stock track/kick brackets pullies and alt.....

it just turns the belts into a fine powder and deposits the powder
all over the front of the motor..........

its been so bad that every time i walk into advanced auto they have a belt ready uder the desk waiting for me .......

yes the pullies arew in proper alignment.......

the water pump was new just a few months old its free spinning and not overly loose or tight

the alt has been replaced twice in the last 5-6 months ....the first one was still charging and probably it was just fine but when i saw that it was fuzzy with powdered rubber i just knew i had my kulprit WRONG .......

anybody??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

make sure you arent overtightening the belt and also check out your fan clutch to make sure it spins freely and it isnt locked up
