Q: Belt keeps on sliding off and breaking the belt.

asked by on

I was driving on steering wheel got hard and could not turn any way. It had a belt broken in to slices. We replaced the belt 2 times and within 10 minutes it keeps on slidding the belt onto the side, sliding it off and will break them again. I change the serpentine belt tensor and it still keeps on breaking belts and sliding them off.

My car has 107 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
