Question about Cars & Trucks
Belt jumping the pulley ribs?
Check for worn out crankshaft damper pulley
The big one on the bottom
Only reason a belt moves, is an alignment issue
Something wore or changed since the vehicle was made
If you changed an idler pulley because of a bad bearing & noise,
that may have been one problem
Any snapping or jumping, is loss of spring tension in the tensioner
pulley assy. Those are the ones that wear & I thought you were referring to

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

we have a 2003 saturn vue which we installed new tires on and we noticed a noise about 6 months afterwards. it sounded to my wife and i to be loud road noise from the tires. the car was driven for 6 months and we decided the noise was annoing. had the tires checked only to find it was the left front wheel bearing which was replaced and stopped the noise.
