I have a 1995 Dodge Caravan 2wd with the 3.0 liter engine. I just replaced the serpentine belt and ever since then the van begins to make a high pitched squeel when you put it into gear. When there is no load on the engine (when it's in Park or Neutral) the squeal goes away but when the vechicle is in gear the squeal is back and loud. The noise gets even worse when you turn the tires (for example:while parking) but when you touch the gas and increase the RPM's the noise goes away until the car comes down to around 10 mph to 0 mph. It also has a horrible vibration that shakes the whole vechicle when acclerating between 35 and 45. The tires have been balanced and we think it is the CV joint. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
