My serpantine belt broke this morning (luckily I was able to pull it off the road). The autoparts store was nearby so I just purchased a cheap belt.
As soon as i installed the belt, and started up, I heard a slight squeal, which progressed with acceleration.
I am assuming this squeal is due to me purchasing a cheap belt, since there were no squeals before.
Since this is a 5.2, it has the auto-tension, but is there anything else I need to look at? I think after work, I'm just going to purchase a better belt, and keep this one for emergencies.
