Dodge Spirit Repair Question
Noisey Fan Belt
i drive a dodge spirit. every time i start the car the fan belt squeals! if i press on the gas the sound gets louder! i have to wait for it to stop squealing before i put it in gear and go.
also, when i run the heater it squeals until i turn the heater off.
do i need a new belt? can i use a spray like Belt Dressing to make it stop?
Generally speaking, if the belt makes noise, it's for 2 reasons, either it's old and fraying, or it's loose, if it's one belt, called a sepentine, you need to change it and the tensioner...

there are two belts. the skinnier one is fraying a little and the wider one is fine.
