Question about 1998 Plymouth Voyager
Serpenten belt comes off when i hit a puddle of water new belt &tensioner installed
This is one of theose questions that I had to research over and over again for the same problem I had. I had a 1998 voyager and a 1998 caravan ,same van right? The voyagers belts would always come off when I hit a puddle of water hard enough or a fair amount of snow. The caravan was fine never had a problem. What I found out by researhing the problem is that the bottom crank wheel is the problem. For some reason they used two different types for the caravan and voyager. the crank wheel on the caravan actually has deeper grooves on it so the belt does not slip off the wheel as easy. I had to replace the wheel with one from a caravan and it fixed the problem. Another solution is to make sure the plastic housing on the bottom of the engine (splash guard) is intact and is tight to keep the water out. If you have a spot where the water can spray up and hit the belt on the bottom wheel seal it so it cannot hit it anymore. Make sure your belt is tight with the correct amount of play and replace the tentioner if needed.
Best of luck
