The best modification chrysler could make would be to add MB's 320 CDI diesel engine.........This would be the best of both worlds.

I have a Chrysler Grand Voyager 3.3 V6 A.W.D (Town & County in the U.S) I have fitted a new drive belt for the auxiliaries but have found the tensioner is loose forcing the belt to misalign itself on the pulleys. How do I remove the tensioner from the engine?

#9 of 13 Aftermarket Roof Rack
Mar 14, 2007 (1:36 pm)
Recently I purchased a Dodge Caravan SE, without a roof rack. I think I would like to have one now, but don't know how to go about it. Any suggestions? Also, I am wondering if putting a rack on will greatly increase the chances of water leakage. By the way, what I want to do is haul a kayak.

I had a '97 Caravan I use to haul a kayak on it's roof rack (just bought a new '07).
I use foam bumpers attached to roof rack cross members to rest my kayak and never had any problems or rack/kayak breakage (my kayak weights some 50# ).
I don't think you will have any problems with water leakage, since rack mounts in roof channels designed for this.
You may find a new OEM roof rack at DodgeParts.com, or better yet , you may get a lot cheaper OEM rack at your local junkyard.
Hope this helps.

I had a similar problem on my 3.0 V6. The tensioner spring relaxed and the main belt started slipping. I bypassed the tensioner by removing the pulley an installing a 1/2" shorter belt.
It worked fine... But be aware... Seen cases where too short a belt was used, inducing oil leakage at the crankshaft o-ring seal, cause the rubber o-ring have worn old, lost flexibility, hardening at the "relaxed" position. Also, this may happen with a new stronger OEM tensioner. It all depends on the car's age and your luck! But once this happens, you will have to replace the ring!!!
I can only guess that a worn 3.3 develops less "give" at the crankshaft o-ring.
Best of luck!
