Question about Dodge Grand Caravan
Hi there cmaries65,
We're gonna get you fixed right up. You will be my eyes and hands. I will explain what we will be doing and why. Sound good?
I do need to know what type of belt it is. Is it a single long belt winding around all the pulleys (called a 'serpentine belt') or several shorter ones? If it's a serpentine, the routing pattern should be on a sticker under your hood.
Both are easily put back on, but the procedures are quite different. Both require a socket/ratchet set.
What concerns me though is why did it come off in the first place?
Meaning: will it come off again when you start the engine?
Have a look at the belt. Has it come apart, ripped? Any fraying or excessive wear?
Has the vehicle given you any other problems recently? Made any strange sounds or smells?
Comment me back.

Tips for a great answer:
Fig. Fig. 11: Accessory drive belt adjustment-3.3L and 3.8L engines
All of the belt driven accessories on the 3.3L and 3.8L engines are driven by a single serpentine belt. The belt tension is maintained by am automatic tensioner.
