I have a 99 Dodge dakota with a V-6. I just replaced the water pump and also the serpentine belt a couple Months ago. I replaced the belt tentioner a couple years ago. I have been having this issue for years, that every time I replace the belt it only lasts a few Months before it starts squilling loudly again. I spray lubricate on it to shut it up, but that only lasts a day.
Is there something else on the pulley drive line causing this? I was thinking the idler pulley maybe, but it spins smoothly as well as all the other pulleys. I've been putting dayco belts on it from Advanced Auto.
have the same problem?
