Still looking for an answer.
can someone tell me if the 06, dodge 2500 power wagons 5.7 hemi 4x4. Come with a timing belt or chain.
I've already replaced the idle pulley, tension pulley, alternator, belt.
Loud bird like chirp driver side.
Less if belt off on blocks engine running. Much louder on road under load. Would the timing tensioner chirp.
does it even have one. Most pictures I pull up show only a guide. PLEASE HELP

I replaced idle pulley, serp belt tensioner, belt and alternator.
If you mean the tensioner for the chain, no. I've been told it has just a guide type tensioner that is a non moving part. Is this so. I've also been told to check the timing chain sprokets and the oil pump. Your thoughts please

If it helps, it is loudest on driver side, about midway down, center of wheel well. That's why I thought it might be related to timing parts. Took off belt and ran with no accessories moving. Can still hear it a bit. But not as bad as if under full load with belt on

Thanks for the advice and pics, i'm going to change the belt one more time with a better brand. And take to dealer in morning.
I was hoping not to have to. $125 an hour.
I'll let you know what they say. Thanks again.

Have seen the chirp on other vehicles and if your's went like this belt first still chirp then a idler still then ALT still then tensioner vstill probably fixed but belt has slipped and continues to chirp so new belt may be the ticket and avoid Dealer

Yes thats exactly how it went, chirp first, then belt, then idle pulley and alt, then tensioner. I'm thinking the new belt got stretched or whacked out some how. I'll do another belt and if still chirp then do the spray trick. I hope its that simple. I'd rather replace the ps pump or a/c comp then the chain or its parts
The ps pump and a/c are the only 2 items under the hood that have a pulley that I haven't changed yet other then the balancer
