Check for a worn bottom crank damper pulley,
if it is covered in oil you got the problem


Are you not checking alignment ?

No other reason the belt would climb the grouves

What about the tensioner?

Nothing to do with water-- you can spray a garden
hose on it & it will stay on

Serpentine belt will come off everytime it gets wet from puddles or spilled fliuds. what is a solution.


Replacing the belt tensioner and the serpentine belt will fix that for good. A temporary fix will be to remove the belt and wash it with regular soap and water inside and out (also wipe clean the pulleys), let it dry and apply Belt Dressing to the inside of the belt, and reinstall it. This will give the belt more traction and hopefully keep it in place.
I think your belt is worn and the belt tensioner lost some of it's tension, but, if you don't want to spend $$, try the above fix, it may work for you.
Good Luck!!

Serpentine belt for Dodge Caravan 1998, it repair


Go to auto zone rent a special tool used to release tension on the serpentine belt tensioner.

It's located on the left side looking at the engine from teh front,

You may not have a lot of room to fully pull back the tensioner SO have some ratchets ready and some sockets and a small pipe for leverage, it's a bear.

Your tensioner MAY be bad so you may have to replace it.

Serpentine belt slipped off. 1998 Dodge Gran Caravan 3.0 litre 6 cylinder


On this particular model of the 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan I determined that the upper hose from the water pump had slipped off and anti-freeze squirted on the serpentine belt causing it to slip off. Once the belt gets slick it never stays on. I replaced the belt by loosing the tensioner which is the idler pulley located in the center of the configuration, A big thanks to user motor1258for the configuration diagram.

Probably a bad belt idler or tensioner. Check the idler and tensioner for a bad bearing.

Go back to your mechanic and tell him/her to check if your pulleys are aligned right. The problem may also be that your components just weren't manufacturered with the right pulleys- I have come to understand that Chrysler is notorious for that kind of stuff.

Serpentine belt replacement


What engine do you have? The 3.3 and 3.8 engines have a single serpentine belt, and a belt tensioner, so no adjustment is needed. Did you replace the tensioner, and want to know how much to torque it? countrycurt0
