I had a belt squealing mostly at start up and when AC was running. A week ago it was at the shop for oil change a a couple recalls and I had them check the belts to see where the squealing was coming.
I was told Power Steering and Serpentine
Belts needed replaced. They were replaced
4 days ago and the car is still squealing, if
not worse than it was before belts were
replaced. What would cause the squeal?
There is a pulley that the serpentine belt rides on that could be bad, the belt could be a little tight if a cheap belt was used. You may want to spray some belt dressing on the belt, it can be purchased at an auto supply store
well..you should never put belt dressing on a belt..and belt could be too loose. and a cheap belt or an idler pully....sorry joe..
