Check to see if your pulleys are lining up an dnot off use astraight edge for this. Then check the belt for bad grooves to many grooves on it. Like not a belt with 7 grooves and 6 on your pulleys. If the belt is frayed at all on either edge replaceit. And it should be anew belt as well. The routing i'm sending is for a 3.4L as you didn't say what engine you have
