5.9 serpentine belt... help!
ok guys... my first thread and I need some help because this is driving me crazy!
I got my 5.9 in February 07 and about a month later, the serpentine belt started squealing. I used some belt conditioner and that helped for about a day, then it started back up. After a few weeks, the squeal only got worse... so I finally replaced the tensioner. This lessened the noise, but the squeal was still present. The local garage suggested replacing the belt, so I did and it was fixed! Or so I thought...
Not too long after this, my rear-end gave out so the jeep was parked for a few months. But I just put a new rear-end on it and am driving it again (yay!). But now, after driving about 200 miles, the stupid belt is squealing again!!!!!!!
The only thing I can figure now is that I have a pulley that is causing the belt to wear unevenly....?
