Question about 2003 Ford Taurus
When engine is running there is a squeeling in belt area, the engine will also drop rpms and cut off
Get a piece of hose, approx 4'-0 long, put one end at your ear, the other end at all pulleys driven by the belt, 1-alternator,2-waterpump,3-idler pulley, get the picture, this homemade stethescope will amplify the squeeking , find your problem, may be a bearing on that pulley , spray some wd 40 directly at center of pulley, a little goes a long way, donot get any on belt, also be very careful with engine running, when near belt it will hurt you in a heartbeat, stay away from fan also. now about that rpm, etc., that could be fuel related, change your air cleaner, fuel filter, wintertime brings out all the problems, buy some drygas, and fuel injector cleaner, put into gas tank, add a higher octane fuel, note: this gas with ethanol in it is causing problems ,especially with older cars, sooooo!!! good luck, ken
