2001 Dodge Caravan 2.4 liter from North America
This van was purchased used with 110K miles. The accessory drive belt broke one summer day and I replaced it with a "gator-back" belt. The new belt caused a harmonic oscillation at idle that got worse when the air conditioning was turned on. I replaced the gator-back with a standard design which stopped most of the vibrations, but the belt slips badly at idle when the air conditioning is on. I am wondering if a new tensioner will fix the problem, or if the compressor is requiring too much torque. Has anyone else had a similar problem, if so, how did you remedy?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
