Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport
My serpentine belt squeaks after starting, continues as engine warms. I applied a small amount water with garden hose, quiets belt for 4-5 minutes, then returns.

SOURCE: water pump
no need to pull the engine off. if you ar sure that there are no more bolts holding the water pump, tap it lightly with a hammer in the separation position . it is just stuck with the gasket. im sure it will come off the engine.

It could be a faulty thermostat. Did it do the same thing before u replaced the t-stat? It sounds like it's sticking closed, then all of a sudden it opens, coolant flows correctly. I'd consider changing it again. Check to make sure parts store is giving u the correct temperature thermostat also. Maybe it's too high for your Ford, delaying the opening.

You can not tighten the belt, it is held on by the Belt tensioner...it's located a little to the left side of the waterpump...now it maybe getting weak, or your belt may need to be replaced...Sometimes they look good, with no cracks, but they get worn and streched out over time..or it may look shiny..either one of those will cause it too squeak..
