  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Ok update I just talked to someone that knows a bit about this stuff and he thinks the bearings are bad that the pully mounts too. So he sugests if you never did replace the whole asembly (bearings) not just the pully to do so. He also thinks it could be the tensioner pulley but to start with the bearings to the one that broke before.

You might want to see if you can get a metal ribbed tensioner pulley. I've had problems with plastic ones, switched to metal and never had a problem since.
