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.

Belt Tensioner replacement


A simple bolt on assembly, the tensioner for the serpentine belt may need replacement if it fails to smoothly pivot and maintain tension on the belt.

Using a half inch breaker bar, release tension by rotating against the spring, remove the belt from the tensioner. Unbolt the tensioner (one bolt may be so diffucult to reach that you might want to use a racheting open end wrench by Alden.
Install the new tensioner by reversing these steps.
I usually replace the belt at the same time.

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
