|Soooooo I've been pretty busy lately on my truck, I cleaned the inside and got my battery recharged and also bought an alternator. To fix the original issue that was supposed to be the pcm was actually just a wiring harness under th dash above the clutch pedal that would vibrate loose. I've verified this by driving Lola and when the "thing" would happen I'd just reach under and push the harness in, and it fixed it. Buuuttttt, my alternator was bad so my battery died, so I proceeded to go to autozone to get it charged for free, and pick up an alternator. Weeeeeelllllllll I got the serpentine belt off and I 9nly actually removed the belt from the alternator, it's still on the other pullies. Last night I went to change it, but there seems to be an extra pulley in front of the top alternator bracket that isn't on the belt diagram on my truck, or online. After watching multiple videos of how people dealt with this problem, that pulley is non existant on their trucks. Here's a screen shot I got from a video, and the circle is where the extra pulley is. My "extra pulley" is on that little nub with threads. I failed to realize this when I was removing the belt, but again I only removed the belt from the alternator pulley. Should I remove the pulley altogether, or remove it and put it back on? I'll show a picture of mine later, but here's the screenshot:
