Hello, Sounds like the one place you haven't tried that may be the problem is changing out the belt tensioner. However, at this point, it may be less expensive to take the car to a mechanic, have him give an absolute diagnosis, and only fix the root cause of the problem rather than continuing to replace different components in your car. Best of luck! CarGrrl

You might try listening on the other side of the engine(driver side) if the squeal is coming from there it's the camshaft synchronizer. This is very common in the taurus. I've changed mine twice. Fifty dollars at Car Quest.

I took the camshaft synchronizer out and cleaned it with carb cleaner {since that's all I had} untill it stopped chirping when I turned the shaft quickly. Then oiled the shaft very well with motor oil. Replaced, then filled the cavity about halfway with motor oil . It's been almost two years with no chirp. Maybe just luck.
