CAR REPAIR

1998 Dodge Caravan

Steering problem
1998 Dodge Caravan 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 135000 miles

Everytime I drive my car, the belt keeps slipping off. Someone told me it might be because my bearings are worn out. Is that a easy to fix job. Something that I might be able to fix myself, or do I need to send it out for repair.

There is a Tech bulliten on your idler pulley and mounting bracket, if the belt is too close to the outter rounded edge, under some conditions it can slip off
