I had that problem with my 1999 Voyager. Gates Rubber co. has a modification kit with a new belt and main pulley. They put ribs sort of on both sides of the belt and it grips very good if I run through a
water puddle This mod came out in about March of 2007

Is the plastic splash shield under the motor missing? That is the purpose of the shield, and if it's gone, you'll keep having that problem.

How stop the serpentine belt from fallen off the tensioner on a 1993 town & country. Is there a aftermarket pulley wheel for that tensioner to replace the flaw problems.


My 1991 Grand Caravan did that too. It had the 3.3L engine just the the T&C (91-93). The tensioner was the problem, hit a puddle on the right side and you'd feel the power steering go and then right away the engine would start to heat up. I tried making the belt come off, but could never duplicate it, only splashing through puddles of rain or wet slush would do it. I never found a tensioner with shoulders on it, but a new one like the original fixed it.

Serpentine belt coming off on a 99 plymout grand voyager


Verify that you have a good/correct belt then check your belt routing and alignment. Then check pulleys for faulty bearings. A free spin with the belt removed should be enough. Whats really common on those is the belt tensioner goes out

3.3 AND3.8 ENGINES TAKE OFF SERPENTINE BELT 15MM ON BELT TENSIONER . REMOVE 2 HOSES OFF PUMP. 5 ?BOLTS AROUND WATER PUMP. IT WILL COME OFF WITH ANTIFREEZE LEAKING OUT. HAVE DRAIN PAN UNDER .

I have a 1999 Grand Voyager. Whenever it rains, the serpentine belt comes off. What's the problem and solution?


Ok..that is a strange one.. I am going to hazard a guess and suggest you look to the AC compressor.

When you run the defroster the ac compressor comes on..typically whenever the outside temp is above 40 degrees.. the ac compressor kicks in to dry out air inside.

Often when it rains.. the windows fog.. you turn on the defrost.. the ac compressor tries to come on.. and.. there ya go.. rather there your serpentine belt goes.

Several things could cause this.. worn belt.. failing belt tension-er... or failing ac compressor..

If the ac compressor is frozen meaing it will not turn..when the electric clutch on the front engages.. it would cause the pulley to stop turning.. and the belt would have a hard time staying on a non rotating part.

Or if the belt tension-er is bad..or the belt is worn.. when the additional load of the compressor kicks in.. it jumps off.

Finally it could be a combination of all three..


Best of luck..

My 99 Grand Voyager keeps throwing the serpentine belt off..I just replaced the water pump and the belt was good for 3 days now I am back to square 1


gates make a kit for theses that is a double sided grooved belt, new grooved tension er and idler pulley because this was such a common problem with theses vans. I have put theses on a few vans and the people were so happy that the belt don't come off anymore even in the heavy rain. The gates part number for the 3.3 and 3.8 V6 is 38379K any parts store that sell gates belts (most of them do) should have this or be able to get it. Its not too hard to install and is about $130 bucks

Why does the serpenteen belt come off when i drive through water


This is one of theose questions that I had to research over and over again for the same problem I had. I had a 1998 voyager and a 1998 caravan ,same van right? The voyagers belts would always come off when I hit a puddle of water hard enough or a fair amount of snow. The caravan was fine never had a problem. What I found out by researhing the problem is that the bottom crank wheel is the problem. For some reason they used two different types for the caravan and voyager. the crank wheel on the caravan actually has deeper grooves on it so the belt does not slip off the wheel as easy. I had to replace the wheel with one from a caravan and it fixed the problem. Another solution is to make sure the plastic housing on the bottom of the engine (splash guard) is intact and is tight to keep the water out. If you have a spot where the water can spray up and hit the belt on the bottom wheel seal it so it cannot hit it anymore. Make sure your belt is tight with the correct amount of play and replace the tentioner if needed.

Best of luck

S belt keeps comming off when its raining


umm.. belts dont just come off when they are wet. who put this one on origionally? make sure the belt is the right length for the car - check that the pattern matches for the placement of the belt with the diagram on the front of the car under the hood and make sure it is tightened up so the deflection on the longest part is between 1" and 3/4". if the belt was tight then you may have a problem with your harmonic balancer which is the part on the motor than spins the belt - if that is bent or got broken then if would have a hard time keeping belt on but that shouldnt have anything to do with getting wet.

Serpentine belt keeps slipping off when it rains.


I have had the same trouble with my 2002 zx2. I have had to reinstall or replace the serpentine belt 4 or 5 times in less than a year. I have replaced the idler bearing and then the water pump went out which took out the belt as well. The belt still came off after replacing those items when I hit another puddle of water. I found that proper installation of the plastic engine splash guards which bolt to the bottom around the motor play an important roll in keeping out road water. Since the pulleys are accessible with the right front tire removed, I focused on securing the plastics tightly around the wheelwell framework. This has helped extremely in keeping water away from the pulleys. I haven't had any more troubles in the last 7 or 8 months. I'm still leary when driving in the rain as the routing of the serpentine belt on this car is the worst I've ever encountered.
Bottom line, check/replace idler bearing, tensioner if needed and make sure all plastic splash guards are there and properly screwed to the frame and each other.
Hope this helps.
