If you have a new serpentine belt and still have squealing maybe an idler wheel is seized up.

i havent had the squealing after i put in the new alternator but it just wont start thats my biggest problem right now it cranks but wont start.

and what is the idler wheel located and what does it look like?

Its ur dizzy

Have you figured it what's going on? Because I have a 2003 Honda Civic DX and it's doing the same shit you're saying idk what else to do myself
