alright i only have this problem when my car is completly warmed up and a squeel sound starts to happen sound like loose belts but its not the belts their tight i cant figure it out

hmmm...but the squeal is definitely coming from the engine bay? And is it mainly when idling or all the time?

If it happens when you are turning it could be your power steering. I had this problem and solved it with Lucas Power Steering Stop Leak. I was not leaking, but it stopped the squealing.

yea its all the time at all rpm's and its not the power steering cause i thought it was that too. and its from the engine bay i hear it sounds more schirping or squeeling more clearly when im like 5 feet away from the car i really dont know

just had the exact same problem. turned out it was the belt tensioner on the a/c drive...which for some reason cost more than the one for the main belt???

Yeah I'd check the belts and the idler pully for sure. I got tired of my squeeling so I changed all my pullies and bought 2 gator back belts. No more squeels. I'm sure one of the bearings were still good, but o'well. Problem solved.
