I wasn't sure if Series I motors had 2 belts. I think I'm going crazy. But, I'm not a Sreies I kind of guy, anyway.

If the tensioner is bad, then the belt may be slipping and causing your loss in power. You might not hear it squeek because the Gatorback belts are very hard so they last a long time. I would really oil up the tensioner.

It could also be your fuel pump crapping out, they do that, but I don't know. If your fuel pump was going out, your car would probably have been dead after all this time.

Did the belts help, or are you still having problems?
How often do you have this problem? Once a day or once a week? Is it consistant, or totaly random? Like, always a problem at WOT or just sometime it will do it.

Maybe you just need a new car?????? :P

How bad is the tensioner? Really sticky or just kind of sticky?

I don't know why a loose belt would only act up after the car gets warm. Maybe your problem lies elseware, I just want to make sure you don't overlook the simple things. It really would make you feel stupid to put in a new fuel pump and find a loose belt was causing the problem all along.

See, my car was doing the same thing, It was only after I had drove a little while, Everyone on here thought it was a fuel pump because it was acting up after it got hot. But in the end, a $50 junkyard computer fixed my problems.

Pete...there'* a good chance the loose tensioner was allowing you slippage on the belt.

the S1 has very little belt wrap on the SC pulley and you could be experiencing a heating condition and slippage.

would belt slipage couse an excessive build up of belt dust around the pully it was slipping on?, because when i switched the belts i noticed alot of belt dust on the SC snout.

also where do you get a SC coupler?
