If you replace the automatic belt tensioner the problem will probably be eliminated...as the tnsioner goes bad the it starts to angle allowing the belt to ride off the edge

Did you double check that all the pulleys are aligned ? I found one that the alternator was a little off straight, and it would throw belts too. Check all your pulleys, especially along the edge that keeps peeling of for a jagged edge in one of the grooves maybe.

My 2000 Dodge Caravan has two fans but I don't see fan belts. Should there be?


No, you will not have fan belts.
The Fans are run by electric Fan Motors and are activated by a engine (coolant) temperature sensor.

How do I improve gas milage on my 2006 3.3 Dodge


Not much to be done, however there is always this:

Proper tune-up
proper tires, alignment
Proper tire inflation (this is huge)
clean air filter, perhaps an air filter that is less restrictive
proper motor oil
Be certain the engine is at proper temp, not running too cool.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

Is the water pump on a 96 grand caravan 3.3L run by the timeing belt


Good morning! The water pump on this model is not run by the timing belt. The 3.3 liter engine uses a timing chain. Hope you find this information useful!

I have a 1984 dodge ram pick up with the mitsubishi motor and i was woindering if the timeing was belt or chain


1984 years came with the 2.0L, 2.6L gasoline and 2.3 diesel engines.

It's most likely a timing belt, but read further for more info. Recommended to be replaced at 60,000 miles (96,000 km) on gasoline engines and on diesel engines at 50,000 miles (80,000 km).

The 2.0 L Engine have two timing belts. One connects the crankshaft and camshaft, the second one drives the right silent shaft.

The 2.6L engine has a timing chain and a silent shaft chain.

Please check to see which particular engine you have and refer to the above for your answer.

Serpentine belt keeps popping off


Check alignment of the belt and check the condition of the belt because once it comes off it will continue to come off because the strands in the belt are broken.

The 3.0 liter is a Mitsubishi design and is not a free wheeling engine or a non interference design, this does not mean the valves are bent, install the belt and then check for bent valves.
