Your belt tensioner is probably shot, but first inspect your pulleys (where the belts route) and see if any of the grooves are rounded off causing the belt to slip off.

Have you tried replacing the belt as well?

There was a bulletin about this. There is a belt guide that can be installed to keep this from happening. Ive never done one, but I remember seeing it when I worked for Chrysler. Go to your local dealership and see if the bulletin applies and order the part. It should be pretty easy to install.
Hope this helps ya,
Billy

Billy is absolutely correct on this...

All 3.3 minivan and passenger car engines, from 1990 till I believe 97, are plagued with this......The location of the tensioner placed it in an excessively "Long " span of the belt, and it is known as what is called a "BACK" pulley, which means it contacts the back of the belt , instead of the ribs.

There are two ways to corrrect this....one is to install the Belt guide, or ..

A tensioner pulley from a later 3.3 or 3.8 2000- up...Has "Shoulders" on the outside edges of the pulley, to secure the belt.
