    Most likely the issue is due to either; worn / stretched drive belt, faulty idler pulley, or faulty / worn belt tensioner.
    Try the many on-line auto parts sources; such as, or for the replacement parts.
    Check the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website for specific steps to check the belt tensioner and to replace the drive belt.

    The real issue is that the tensioner pulley is completely smooth. This is acknowledged in the following link:

    The video explains why it occurs so often and a permanent (but admittedly expensive) fix for the problem. I've dealt with this issue more times than I care to count. All the tow truck drivers I've talked to say this is actually common with minivans.
