We had our first freeze the other night and now all the belts in our paint booth are squealing. Standard v-shape belts. I was just wondering if the outside temp played a factor. Does it go away when you actually let run a while?

It's very erratic. It seems to get better as it warms up. But if I stop at a light. It starts all over again. Sometimes I can hit high RPMs in 3rd gear and it will go away. Other times, I can lug it in 4th and it will stop. Non stop while wheeling.

This a shot in the dark but put just a little lithium grease on each pulley and see if it quits. If it does you know you still have a place that's not riding quite right. If it fixes it wipe it all off and keep looking.

Let me make sure I have you right. Put lithium grease on the pulley. The idea being that it will reduce any friction from misalignment and therefore reduce squealing. If it does not reduce squealing, then the problem is probably the PS pump or water pump since the belt and alt have been replaced.

Sounds right to me.. Except instead of greasing all pulleys at once, it would be better to go one by one... That way you'll know which one it is, if it its indeed the culprit.

That's what I was thinking. Now if I could spend less that 12hrs at work, I might actually get to fix this thing

This was the point. To isolate a pulley or an issue. How ever the grease will spread fast.

Thanks for the suggestion. I will try it when I get some time. I love this forum. It is a serious resource!

I use "Prozac" grease myself..."lithium" grease only works if your belts are bi-polar or manic depressive...the "Prozac" grease should make all belts happy I think....but on a serious note wouldn't adding grease to the belt just make it slip more....kinda like when I used WD40 on the squeaking on my disc front brakes on my first car(76 olds cutlass)...the squeaking stopped!...but then so did the stopping...don't laugh this is a true story...the can does say "stops squeaks" in big ole letters...my stepmom bout rang my neck(she was driving it at the time)...and to think I later on became an ase certified master mechanic(way back in the early 90's) on euro-trash to boot...well good luck with what seems to be your squealing nemesis...just thought id add a little humor to your day...

Be carefull while Hugging the Trees...They leave dents on your Jeep....

Shhhhhh I'm not crazy...It's just the voices in my head

Yeah I just finished reading that on your thread. Lmfao.
It will definitely make it slip but it should isolate whether or not the squeak is coming from the belt or a bad bearing etc. it probably won't charge worth a **** until I clean the grease off. Just picked some lithium up at the Summit Store. I'm like a kid on crack when I walk I that place. Too much eye candy!

The lithium grease idea was a diagnosis type idea. Not a fix.

What is this summit store you speak of and where might I find one?

Summit Racing has a retail store on the south side of Atlanta. I think they have 4-5 around the country that are attached to their distribution warehouses. 20,000 sq ft of polished intakes, cooling systems, superchargers , you name it. Kid in a candy store.

Thanks man. Trying to get everything buttoned up and a new set of tires so I can drive it cross country. Plan is to leave it in Phoenix at a buddies until summer so we can hit KOH and Moab sometime around Easter Jeep.
