Hi, I have a chevy silverado with a 5.7l v8. I recently changed altenator and serp belt. There is a whinning noise coming from that area, I changed both tension and idler pulleys and I still have the noises. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

You welcome if AC has been converted to 134a maybe oil charge might quiet it down.
