Before you go threw to much stuff, I have fixed this problem a few times. It sounds like one of your pully's are bend or warped. also it could be the tensioner also, but I would check the pully's first.

I would bet you have the 3.0 V-6 engine. There is a conversion kit for this problem that works well. All major auto part stores carry this, I have bought them from NAPA, Bumper to Bumper, Autozone and Carquest.

Why is my bottom pulley wobbly an the cause of it


The harmonic balancer is a sttel ring attached to the center section with a compressed rubber sleve. When the rubber gets oil soaked it swells and starts to fail - wobble. This is amplified by the high tension of the sepentine belt. Fix for it - replace the harmonic balancer. Before it comes off leaving uou stranded

I have a 2005 dodge caravan. it is a very cold alberta winter morning today and my engine light went on. is this going to be an expensive repair..I was scared of breaking down.


There's only way to tell what it is , it needs to be scanned either with a code reader or scanner. Might be minor such as a loose fuel cap or, something that will leave you stranded. Have it checked ASAP.

I have a 1991 grand caravan the right front half shaft keeps breaking i changed the shaft,caliper,rubber brake line,metal brake line.


Two things, if you get a vibration when you are decelerating( an indication of shaft problems) you may need to replace your 3 motor mounts. But more important, most aftermarket rebuilt shafts are junk. Buy only new or Mopar rebuilt axle shafts. Anything other than Mopar new shafts or Mopar rebuilt shafts(sometimes Mopar rebuilt can be bad too) and you are pretty much guarantying that you will be replacing the shaft again with in 6 months. I own a 1993 Voyager and have replaced a dozen axles. The problem stopped with the OEM parts. Forget about the lifetime warranty offered with auto store axles, unless you enjoy replacing axles.

Timing belt on 1997 Dodge Caravan keeps slipping off after new installation


I had a 1998 dodge caravan that kept doing the same thing, it would actually break the belt when it come off. I fixed this by buying a slimmer belt, you know, one that is not so wide. I put a slimmer belt on mine and I never had another problem. Maybe this will help.

Air conditioning belt keeps


check out the belt tension to see if that is good cause they can cause the belt to keep breaking because the spring inside goes bad.

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.
