    dreaded SQUEAK!!!

    ok so ive had this squeak for about 2-3 months now and spent almost $300 to fix it and its still there! ive replaced both tensioners, both idler pullies, and both belts and while its gotten better its still there! after cold start up its very noticeable esp. when on the gas. after full warm up and about 30mins-1hr of driving it goes away. any ides of what it could be? ps pump, alt, water pump?

    take your belt off and spin them by hand. my bet is the alternator. can you tell which side it is coming from?

    poss water pump or gasket leaking on to belt
    it is possible for P/S pully to be on too far,or not on enough ,that will cause problems.
    check from under car for leakage from WP gaskets/weephole.......dex-cool leaves a nice pink trail to follow.

    gatorback belts are excellent for stopping undiagnosed or undiagnosable belts squeaks
