    Belt squeel?

    I washed my car about 3 days ago and decided to clean on the engine a little. I got the engine looking pretty good but now it sounds like the belt is squeeling. It does it the whole time Im driving. What do I do now.

    Probably just needed to dry off. If you get the issue in the future, and you're sure the belt is good, parts stores sell belt dressing, IIRC it's STP in a blue can with red cap.

    probably your AC belt making the noise...

    i know a while back i had a problem with belt squeel and found a bullitin from GM that they had the wrong pully bracket offset installed for the serpentine belts... you might be one of the guys like me who had to get a new bracket...
