Thumbs up 1995 Jeep Cherokee belt noise Help

I am selling my 1995 Jeep Cherokee Sport and go figure 2 days ago i develope this bearing slash belt boise. So I went to the jeep dealer and they aked how tight is the belt, I said i can push it down at least a half inch. They told me to tighten it, it should be snug. ( I was there going to pick up a idler pully which i thought was the problem) I come home and tighten the belt now it is lowder than before. So I loosen the belt and pull off the idler and clean it and it also spins freely. I put it all back and now my jeep is louder than before. I have a guy coming to look at this jeep on Sunday i need to fix this Please help. One thing when I press on the gas to 2000 rpms the noise really gets quiet. Is it the water pump, alternator, ac..... Please help The noise seems louder underneath.

I am going to change the belt in the morning!

Changed the belt this mornig and the Idler pulley Walla! Fixed.
Advanced auto Idler pully 18 dollars.
Thanks for everyones help, now if I can get the 99 cherokee high speed noise to stop I'll be a good as gold!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

my 1990 has just started doing this all the time,

Squeals like a banshee when idling, with a wierd chirping sound going on too
when I rev up , it goes quiet.

before it got to this point, it seemed only to squeak for a short time when first started up on cold mornings, on hot days, it didn't.

I've been thinking it's an idler pully too, but maybe the water pump? I don't think it's the PS pump, but who knows, so if I'm going in there to fix the those two issues, I might as well swap out to a new radiator and open system with an electric fan. And if I'm going to have it up on stands, then I might as well grab that 242 and D44 from the junk yard. (now I'll need new springs and shocks for the lift) So before I even start, the jobs getting to big for me to do in a 1/2 hour. and I don't have all the parts, :-( nor a plan for splaining how a squeaking engine costs so much for fixing, and has to be in the garage for so long.

Let me know how you fix it. incase I just take the short route.

A little spray of belt conditioner helped my squeeky belt, but it wasn't a major problem in the first place.

I'd say try belt conditioner or a new belt, those are the cheapest places to start.

My '99 Cherokee with 109,000 on it is making that "chirping" noise when cold. Noise goes away after about 5 miles of driving (warmed up). Did you resolve this problem with your rig ? Please help !

Thanx

chirping noise

I solved the problem by changing the idler pully and I put a new belt on. When you have the idler off the truck stick your finger in it and give it a spin if it makes any noise at all it needs to be replaced.
Good Luck

I went through this for a year + with my '95. I replaced belts 2-3x, tightened, loosened, replaced idler pulley, alternator (separate issue, but on the belt train) and would get some temporary resolution but each time the chirp would come back. Turned out the harmonic balancer was going causing a slight misalignment. Replaced that (not the easiest job, but not the most difficult either) and viola - no chirp since!

you posted this on a 10 year old thread that has nothing to do with what you're asking about? why?

Sorry man I realized after I posted my question and don't know how it went here instead on a new thread, I also try to go back to edited or deleted and I couldn't, this is not the easiest neither the friendly type of forum I had seen. How can you delete or edit on a thread?
