Question about 1992 Dodge Spirit
Have replaced belt no help
Have to agree with "richndez" , I'd certainly be inspecting those pulleys & tensioners. Remove the belt, and buy a can of "Brake Clean" spray, and spray all your pulleys & inspect them with a flashlight for gummed up or damage, then take hold of the tensioner pulley, and try wiggling it to see if it moves even the slightest. Then put your fingers on the front of the pulley & spin it back & forth as far as you can with the twist of your wrist, while pushing on it, and pulling upwards, pushing downward (applying pressure), to see if you feel any roughness in it. It should feel completely smooth, no vibration , resistance or noise from it. If your not sure, undo the nut & washer that holds it on there, and remove it. Put a few drops of oil in the center where it spins, and try to work it down in the space between pulley & sleeve it spins on. Put it all back together, and try it & see if better. If squeel is gone, and returns shortly, buy a new tensioner pulley and replace it. Have a real close look for any sign of antifreeze (coolant) , or oil that may be dripping on the belt, or pulley while your at it. That will also cause a belt to start squeeking.
