Question about Cars & Trucks
It doesnt have to be over heating if the water pump bearings are bad. I take wd-40 and spray one pulley at a time on the back side if possible to isolate the bad pully bearings. Start with your ac compressor first because next to the idler the ac pulley sqeals alot.

If it gets worse when turning the wheel at a stop, then it's the power steering pump. Could be the power steering fluid also. Check your belts for wear or damage. The idle pulley will make a constant noise, sometimes whining sometime screeching. To check idler pulley it is best to remove belts.

oNE BOLT MISSING IS A PROBLEM IN ITSELF. And yes if you have a swepentine belt you must have a tebnsioner,. If it's a V belt then no the missing bolt is probably your adjustment point. Good luck

sounds like idler bearings but you have to release the tension to check,Also you can check the rest of the pulleys also at this time. I dont think you have to drop the engine.

serpentione belt sounds as if it is stretched. first try to reseat serpentine belt. if still a problem then go buy new belt at autozone. also buy some belt dressing. this should fix the problem. if this doesnt solve then you need to buy a new idler arm. relatively easy fix.
