SQUEEK

2002 Pontiac Grand Prix

On my 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix I have developed a squeeking sound. I think it sounds like a belt might need to be lubricated--it doesn't sound any louder when I turn corners so I don't think it is the power steering. Any suggestions?

Could also be a bearing in the idler pulley or other pulleys.

I would take the belt off and grab the pulleys to see any obvious play.

You mentioned lubrication? If you are talking about belt dressing, don't waste your money, replace the belt and clean any grease/oil off all pulleys.

Also check that you have no leaks around the belt e.G. Coolant from a leaking waterpump.
