serpentine belt keeps coming off

Asked by Jul 10, 2016 at 08:57 PM about the 2000 Dodge Caravan Sport

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just bought a 3.0 dodge caravan. Just had timing
belt replaced and water pump before I bought it.
Owners said just needed a pulley and a belt.
Bought belt put it on and was too loose and
caused the belt to keep coming off. Tensioner is
fine what else could cause the belt to be too
loose??

Wrong belt or serpentine alignment, The tensioner wear marks are fine? Double check the belt make sure its correct ! you can always fit a smaller belt.
