BELT NOISES

2001 GMC Yukon

Noises problem
2001 GMC Yukon V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 256000 miles

I replaced the water pump, tensioner pulley and idler pulley as well as the belt and the car would squeak and chirp from the belt but when I put belt conditioner on it gets much worse like an awful squeal when given any gas. What might be the problem and is it possible that the pulley on the alternator may be bad as to me it sounds like this is the root of the awful squeal after the dressing is applied? Thanks in advance, Derek

Hello,

With spray lube in hand and engine off spray behind the Alternator pulley to get to the bearings. Then start vehicle if noise is gone for a period of time then the bearing in the alternator are going bad.
