I am replacing my serpentine belt and I have the one that the auto part store said I need but it seems like it its too big. It is on everything the way it is supposed to be (according to the diagram I found online) and it is still loose. Can someone help?

Do you

Compare it to the old belt to see if it is the same length.

Nope never mind. Well the diagram was right but every time I start the car the belt comes off at the tensioner. What could that be.
