The first thing i would do is try playing with the belt tensioner. it sounds like the belt is lose and when the engine warms up the belt starts to expand and slips off.

One or more of your pulleys may be damaged or misaligned. Remove the belt and inspect the pulleys for cracks and/or sharp edges. You can use a stiff straight edge to check alignment. Also check that there is no play or wobble in any of the pulleys and that your belt gemstones is not worn or broken.

Plugged fuel filter. There are two - one in the tank and one in the fuel line. Probably the one in the fuel line so change that one first.

1996 buick regal fan belt slipped off


The idler pulley is spring loaded. With the correct size socket and ratchet and a strong arm just pivot it away momentarily from the belt enough to pull the belt loose. You don't actually remove the pulley. Just like taking a dead mouse out of the old spring traps. If you are getting some pulley noise, you can replace the pulley only (one bolt)
pour water on the pulley to see if noise changes, its an easy way to track down belt, pulley noises.
