problem #1

May 022007

Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
2000 Dodge Caravan 3.0 (40K miles) replacing the drive belt &/R idle / tensioner every (2) years. Belt P/N (good year) 460805 / 6pk2045. Tensioner mopar 04536154ad. The dealer just smiles, this does not seems to be very reliable. Any other type complaints files with this type unit"???? I replaced the belt on Sept 2003, the dealer did the tensioner & belt @31K in 2005. I again did the belt on 03/31/07. The dealer did the tensioner @44K, 05/02/2007. This is my daughters van, a school teacher, drive to & from schools for the most part I have through last tensioner & the belts that I did. So if she or I plans to go on a trip, we must either replace the tensioner & drive belt or carry one with us. Now on my 2001 Caravan with over 60K I still have the some tensioner & drive belt. Duh??????" I need help with this. The dealership is not going to do anything.
