2002 dodge grand caravan sport belt squeals when it rains


The serpentine belt tensioner is a spring loaded device that pulls the right amount of pressure to keep the belt for falling off, as well slipping.

This unit has a short life span, that of the belt, and in most cases it is recommended that it should be replaced at the same time as the belt.

I am 90% sure this is the issue.

I hope this helps

I have a 1996 Dodger Grand Caravan with a 3 liter V6. Over the last two years we've seen the van eithr stall or hesitate when being driven in the rain (not snow or cold temperatures, just rain). It will be...


The problem is moisture could be getting in anywhere. I try to diagnose this problem by using a misting spray bottle of water to get things wet under the hood while the car is running. It's safe as long as you don't spray water down the air intake. Just start the van and wet down anything that looks electronic until the van's idle stumbles or quits. A cracked coil pack or bad plug wire is the most common cause of this problem.

Serpentine belt problem in a dodge grand caravan v6 3.3 l 2000 slept when is raining or wet days


Hello, This was a common problem with these van. So common that gates made a solotion to it. They made a kit that contains a belt with groove on both sides of it. and a tentioner pulley with grooves and also an idler pulley with grooves. This gets rid of the smooth pulleys that the belt can slip off from. I think the kit is about $150 buck and you will have to change them two pulleys, but The belt will never come off again. here is a part # GATES Part # 38379K and link to show you a pic. http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=1042854 Copy and past this link to your browser to see a pic

1994 Dodge Caravan Serpentine fan belt will slip off pulleys if a little water is applied. All pulleys have been tested without noise. At start up and while driving a grinding noise is heard-like ball...


Take a good look at the tensioner pulley (the one with the spring) when the van isn't running. You'll notice that the belt is on the very outside edge of the pulley. Once you add water (or hit a puddle) the belt will slip off that pulley. The tensioner arm is worn and needs to be replaced. Since it's worn (the spring has become weak) it's not aligned right and is acting like a cone shaped pulley. As soon as it gets wet it wants to walk off the end.

If you take the belt off there should be a noticable line (paint worn off) on the pulley where it used to ride. Or you can look at it nearest the engine with the belt on and you should see a shiny area where it used to ride.

Hope that helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

Need serpentine belt routing diagram for 1994 Dodge grand caravan


3.3L?
Looking at the engine from front (right side of the Van): Stating at the Top, Going Left to Right and Clockwise:
Over the Alternator
To under the Idle Pulley,
To Over the AC Compressor.
To the Left Side of the Water Pump.
To the Right side and Under the Crankshaft Pulley
To the Right side and Over and Down the Tensioner
To Under the Power Steering Pump
And Back up-to the Left side of the Alternator.
Advise when puting it on:
Put the Belt around everything else accept for the Alternator. After it is around all the rest of the Pulleys - Pull the belt up - tight from the Power steering Pump and the Idle Pulley to form a loop, holding the Belt close to the Altenator Pulley.
Using the 15mm wrench or belt tensioner bar - rotate the Tensioner Pulley towards the front of the Van and then place the belt over the Alternator.
Let me know if this helped or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

SERPENTINE BELT NOISE IN WET WEATHER. 1994 FORD VAN 150


replace the belt, if that has been done pull the belt off and check the pulley's for proper laignment with a straight edge, if that is ok check for excessive play in the bearings of all the pulleys that belt runs on, pay close attention to the automatic tensioner pulley and arm and the idler pulley's

Not always. You should check your belt tensioner though to ensure the bearings arent going out or the tensioner isn't bad. Let me know what you find. ngcoonass@yahoo.com and I will help out more if needed.

Go back to your mechanic and tell him/her to check if your pulleys are aligned right. The problem may also be that your components just weren't manufacturered with the right pulleys- I have come to understand that Chrysler is notorious for that kind of stuff.
