probably the belt making noise , very common .
WHen a belt gets old it gets dry and cracks start to appear , the non-ribbed side of the belt may get dry & glazed also make noise . common problema are also tensioners that make the belt get out of line with the rest of the pulleys , look carefully because just a little miss-alignment can cause a belt to slip on the smooth side of pulleys and make noise . Misting water onto the belt may also help you determine what is making noise.
Good Luck and Watch your Fingers !!!!

If it was the timing belt, the car would have quit right then and there.
It's the belt that drives the fan, water pump and power steering.
Probably what they call the serpintine belt.

could be the alternator, water pump
take the belt and spin all the pulleys and listen for noise and make sure they turn smoothly
another trick is to take a can of wd40 or equivalent and spray the bearings 1 at a time till the noise goes away or quiets down

Possibly dirt in the grooves of the belt. remove the belt and clean the grooves with a wire brush. If you get a lot of dirt and powder out of it clean it good and reinstall. Might work. did for mem on my 03 Sebring.
