66,555 mileage I have an 04 land rover discovery 4.6l v8. I have loud squealing in the front of engine. Have replaced the serpentine belt. Belt tensioner, and battery. Still squeals. Put water on belt and goes away for a minute then returns.

Do you
have the same problem?

You gave it more tension or released the tension? Did you get the right belt? It sounds like the belt may be too long.

We gave it more tension and that is one of the things we thought. I have another email in to the local land rover dealer for these problems also. If this is the case I will order a new belt from dealer

Not necessarily. White smoke from the tailpipe that dissipates quickly? Oil in the antifreeze. Oil deposits on the spark plugs.

Ok. Check the compression of each cylinder. It should vary by no more than 15-20 PSI from the highest reading to the lowest reading.
