Replace the belts, if this doesnt solve, you have a slipping pulley.

SOURCE: loud noise when I turn my truck on

This could posibly be the tensioner pulley. Oil the bearings and see if this helps.

SOURCE: put belt back on

there is a tensioner pulley that has a wrench fitting on it. if you look at one of the stickers under the hood there will be a diagram of which pulley it is. pry clockwise on the pulley after you have snaked the belt on the others. this will allow you to slide the belt onto the pulley.

SOURCE: 2000 town & country van. serpintine belt slips

Sounds like the belt is worn out or the tenchiner pully is worn out so replace the belt and if it still does it then you will have to change the pully, but most of the time when this happens it is the belt so replace the belt and you should be good to go.

SOURCE: When engine starts from cold there is a squeeking

Try some belt dressing on the belt. You can get it at any parts store. If that doesn't help, replace the belt.

97 Chevy S10 rear end squeek that goes away when brakes are applied

If you have rear disc brakes, one of the rotors could be warped and causing the pads to move in the caliper.
You should be able to remove one wheel at a time, lock down the rotor with the lug nuts, and put the trans in low gear or reverse to listen for the noise.

Loose or worn drive belts. Likely the one that drives the alternator and water pump. If you have more than 60k miles on your timing belt, have that done along with the belts. It is not cheap but less than a motor.

I already replaced the belt, could it be defective if the squeeking is still there. 2000 rodeo 6cylinder tension pulley, can you adjust these

I am sure your new belt is fine.The tensioner will automaticaly adjust to the correct belt tension on its own.If You are convinced the squeeking is comming from the tensioner pully bearing then you need to replace it.Or you can do a quick check, by putting a wrench on it the same way you did to replace the belt.Pull and lift tensioner up and away from the belt and with your free hand spin the pully if it squssks or is rough to spin then it needs to be replaced, do this test with (Engine Not Running).Good Luck and have a good XMASS.

Churping sound upon start up between the firewall and engine. Sounds like a bearing but quites down some after engine running for a couple minutes.

I would try to remove the drive belt(s) and see if the chirping goes away, and also while the belt(s) are off, check that each rotatable pulley turns freely indicating that the bearings are ok.

Engine squeek

Check your idler pulley(s) & serp. belt, alternator & lastly your timing belt idler. Squeeks generally signal impending bearing failure. With the engine running, turn on your lights: if it goes away or gets worse, most likely its the alternator. If it stays, could be the serp. idler. Using a long screwdriver, press the tip against the alternator frame and idler support and press your ear to the other end. Its crude, but it does work...should be able to get closer to the source. If you need to replace parts, start with the idler & serp. belt, then alternator (you might be able to have it rebuilt for a fraction of the cost) and lastly timing belt & idler.
Good luck.
