The 93 mpv ,if it has a 3.o has a belt.

I have had mine break 4 times. I have 360k on the engine. It has never done any damage.

The engine dies and it won't restart. It cranks but it won't start. You can smell burning rubber and if you peak behind the cover, on the left front of the engine, you will see small ground up pieces of rubber belt.
