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

remove belt and check the pulleys. this belt routing is odd and its very tight. i have seen many failed tensoner pulleys on these. it should spin smoothly and quiet. and grinding or bumpyness in it and i would replace it. check all pulleys while your there. they are not expensive.

good luck,
Michael

SOURCE: Serpintine belt popped off on 1999 plymouth grand

Yes, the belt tensioner can wear out. I had the same problem with a brand new belt and noticed that the belt tensioner was "moving" alot when the engine was running and the belt was on (of course). I changed the belt tensioner and put the belt back on. Knock on wood, hasn't given me anymore trouble.

Need to put a serpintine belt on for 1999 plymouth grand voyager


it is dependent on which belt has come off,.

if it is the timing belt then this should be fixed by a recognised machanic because if the timing is out it can cause damage to the engine.

if the fanbelt has come off you usually need to slacken off the alternator to replace it.

it is unusual that the belt comes off by itself and there maybe some other issue such as a loose part. i would speak to a dealer to ensure you are not wasting time and money.

I hope this was useful

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

Has there been a new recall on the serpentine belts for a 2000 Plymouth Grand Voyager? I've had to replace 4 this year and I haven't had the vehicle for more than a year yet?


No it hasn't been recalled. What happens to the belts. What size engine? Usually a bad tensioner is what causes the belts to come off and get torn up.
