What is a $3.00 to $5.00 can of belt dressing going do to your budget?
This mean it is sort of old?
Look at the backside of the belt (grooved side) where it sort of goes over a smooth pulley (pulley with no grooves). These pulleys kind of bend the belt backwards (per say) and spread backside open. Inspect this backside portion of the belt for tiny cracks in the lines (the parts that run in the grooved pulleys).
If you see these lines cracked open, it is time for a new belt.
Bundle the old one up and stick it in the trunk, put it in beside your spare tire, it might get you out of a bind in the future.
Check this out, two choices a dollar or so apart.
Reckon you could do this yourself?
Keep us posted on progress.
