97 CARAVAN SQUEELS

1997 Dodge 600 • 6 cylinder FWD Automatic • 200,000 miles

I have a 97 dodge caravan that satrted squeeling off and on, then it started squeeling with a grinding sound, replaced the tension pulley, the bearing was shot, put it back together and it still squeels really louad all the time. It gets louder as I accelerate. What can it be? I have tried a belt dressing and a spray lube but neither help longer than a couple of seconds. The tension is fine on the belt. Any help would be great. Thanks

Well, now that you have sprayed dressing on that belt, you can throw that one away and replace it. It's junk now. I don't know if you replaced only the pulley or the whole tensioner but it should have been the whole tensioner. Double check all the components to be sure they are free and working properly and double check the routing to be correct.
