Serpentine belt squealing


Either the belt has stretched, or the tensioner is not keeping it tight.
Or it has oil on it.

Our 1998 Ford windstar has went all EXORCIST in dash board etc.


at the minimum, since you mentioned all the idiot lights coming on, your alternator is fried. have someone put in a new alternator. if it's still acting up, have someone go over the computer.
