Q: Why would a water pump belt become loose on a semi truck?

asked by on

my water pump belt is loose i am wondering how does a water pump belt get loose
My car's transmission is unknown to me.

This may happen for a number of reasons such as a loose tensioner pully or potentially a belt that may be stretched or worn out. I would sggest checking the tensioner pully first to be sure it is not loose, followed by inspecting the belt to be sure it is not cracked or worn out.
