SOURCE: cant get the crankshaft pulley off

It's most likely right hand thread. You will have to use a large breaker bar to get enought leverage to remove this nut. Or you can use what ever you have and place a steel pipe on the end of it for extra leverage. If it doesn't budge, you may have to soak it in penetrating oil, and use an impact wrench. Make sure you remove the large washer under the nut "before" you remove pulley.

SOURCE: the belt keeps coming off the fan

The spring mechanism is wearing out on the belt tensioner. Replace it now or it will become very expensive when the AC bracket breaks

SOURCE: Loud squealing sound in my engine

Try removing the belt and turning each pulley by hand. If everything is smooth and free, with the belt still off, drive down the block once and see if the noise is there (this will eliminate all rotating accessories on the front). If you hear the noise, then there is a problem deeper inside. Oil pressure is good? Dont' forget when doing this, you will have no power steering, so be careful.

Serpentine belt falling off

The Belt Tensioner is probably crooked, it's hard to tell but if you look at it while the vehicle is running and it looks tilted even just a tiny bit, it will cause the belt to fall off. Belt Tensioner.

All in one Belt keeps coming off Bottom pulley of motor

Sounds like the crank pulley is damaged. You will have to replace it. There's a bolt in the center that has to be removed and then you will have to get a puller tool to "pull" it off the crankshaft.

Replacing fan belt?what tools are required?


Things You'll Need
3/8-inch drive breaker bar
Metric sockets
Serpentine belt

1 Open the hood and inspect the flat surface on top of the plastic fan shroud for the belt routing diagram. Follow the diagram instructions to route the new belt.

2 Locate the serpentine belt self-adjusting tensioner on the front of the engine block. The tensioner has a pulley on the bottom of the tensioner arm, which the belt travels under. The tensioner can only be rotated from the bolt that secures the pulley to the tensioner arm.

3 Rotate the tensioner in a clockwise motion with a metric socket and the breaker bar to loosen the tension from the belt. Then, pull the belt off the top of the tensioner pulley. Release the tensioner pulley and pull the breaker bar off the pulley bolt.

4 Pull the belt out of the accessory pulleys. Then, slide the belt around each fan blade and out of the engine bay. Rotate each fan blade to the top side of the engine to get the belt around each fan blade.

5 Match both the new belt and the old belt together to make sure that the new belt is the correct size. Then, route the new belt around each fan blade and around the crankshaft pulley. The crankshaft pulley is the big pulley at the very bottom of the engine.

6 Follow the routing directions from the belt routing diagram to install the new belt around the other accessory pulleys. Once the belt has been routed around all of the pulleys, look over the belt and make sure that it is secure inside all of the pulleys.

7 Crank the 1998 Dodge Caravan and let the motor run for about 15 seconds. This will finish seating the ridges of the new belt into the grooves of each accessory pulley.

8 Shut the motor off and close the hood.

Replace serpentine belt

So your looking for the belt tensioner pulley, it will be a wheel that pushes down on the belt to keep the belt tight at all times. You will need to get the right sized socket to fit it or a long wrench. These are pretty stiff and it will take a lot of force to move the spring holding the tension on the belt. If you can get someone to help you just be careful not to get anyone's figure between the belt and any of the pulley's. Loosen the tensioner and remove the belt only after you have located the belt routing diagram, taken a picture or made mental note of how it routes around everything. So now just apply pressure to the tensioner after you have the belt mostly routed around all the other pulleys, being careful that you get the belt seated into the pulleys if not you will cut the belt when you start the engine. Safety first, also they sell tensioner wrenches at most parts stores, or you can use a ratchet and a piece of pipe over the ratchet handle to give you more leverage.

I have replaced the tension pulley and the other free spinning pulley "same size" pulley s and also replaced belt and the belt keeps falling off tension pulley and it is a very very strong...

The tensioner is most likely bad and not just the pulley. If the spring is weak look at the original marks on the original pulley. The belt should ride towards the engine side of the pulley and not the rounded outer edge.

How to change serpentine belt

There will be a serpentine belt tensioner somewhere on the motor. Its on a spring and what it does is push against the belt to keep it on and tight on the pulleys. Either pull it out of the way, or unbolt the tensioner and simply pull the belt off. You may need to look at the belt path diagram most likely on the bottom of the hood, or on the radiator support where the hood latches. Hope this helps,
