Engine Mechanical problem
1993 Chrysler Imperial 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 155000 miles
I have an issue with my serpentine belt that only happens when the roads are wet. The serpentine belt will come off the pulleys. I've checked the alignment (by eye) and it all seems kosher. I even put a new tensioner and belt on (hours of fun). There is no issue when the roads are dry, but as soon as it is wet, it will religiously throw the belt off. I was told that it is a frequent problem with these cars. Something about the splash guard on the lower right front hitting the belt run. But I can't see the problem there since every time the belt comes off, the only way to get the thing on again is to remove the wheel & spash guard to gain access to it. There is only one way for the guard to affix to the frame. I am thinking about replacing the " Idler" pulley but I hate to throw money at a problem and not know if that is the issue.
