Question about 1993 Chrysler Town & Country
I noticed when I splash through puddles while driving my van (chrysler town & country) the serpentine belt falls off. I wondering what I have to do to prevent this problem.

My 1991 Grand Caravan did that too. It had the 3.3L engine just the the T&C (91-93). The tensioner was the problem, hit a puddle on the right side and you'd feel the power steering go and then right away the engine would start to heat up. I tried making the belt come off, but could never duplicate it, only splashing through puddles of rain or wet slush would do it. I never found a tensioner with shoulders on it, but a new one like the original fixed it.

take your time and make sure the belt grooves are seated in every pulley or u will never get it on, there is a belt run diagram under the hook.

Replace the belt tensioner. This is a common problem. They also have a pulley available for the tensioner that has edges on it to keep this from happening.

SOURCE: how to change serpentine belt
There is a youtube video that shows how to change the serpentine belt/tensioner/idler, but on my 2005, the tensioner looks OEM and doe snot have a squared off end to easily use a wrench to turn.
I think I have a sepentine tool (flat with square 3/8's drive) I can use to turn the tensioner.
