Well I warrantied out the belt, installed a new tensioner, since I was in there anyway. Ran the truck for 10 min. Everything was fine. However the next day. Start up the truck and everything is fine. Back out of drive onto street. Upon take off I here a sort of knocking or tapping sound. Goes away after couple seconds after accelerating, but every time I stop then accelerate it starts again. Got home, opened hood and while idling there is a knock or tap sound. Plus a little chirp again. I cannot tell where the knock is comming from, but the only place I can feel it is by putting my hand on the ac pump. It doesn't feel like it is comming directly from the pump, but that is the only place I can get my hand in with it running. Not sure if it is comming from the block or not. It is not a constant knock, it is on a few seconds then goes away then back a few seconds later. If I rev the truck while it is knocking the knock does speed up. I don't know if this has anything to do with what I have been dealing with, but never has happened before until replacing tensioner, and belt again. This is giving me a headache.
