Question about 1998 Ford F150 Regular Cab
I don't think its the CPS, but I do know that WD40 will make a squealing belt even worse. If you havnt replaced the belt yet, I would do that.
Let us know if that helps.

Sounds like you have a pulley locked up. Did the belt break? If not, it could have just flowed over the locked pulley without breaking. Take the belt off and spin check all the pulley's. You will find it. Was you running the air compressor?

Often these vehicles have a spring loaded tensioner, which you would have released to replace the belt. When the spring in the tensioner gets weak, causes a squeak.
