Question about 1996 Dodge Caravan
I can only think of 2 belts: the timing belt and the serpentine belt. If you look on the passenger side of the engine compartment you should see a broad belt with many small grooves. Check to see if it feels like it has tension on it. If you push or pull on it you should not be able to pull out a lot of slack. If this belt checks out then you have a busted timing belt or chain, depending on the engine.
You can probably do the serpentine belt yourself with a few simple tools but Unless you're a passable shade-tree mechanic I'd let someone else do the timing belt/chain.
