I have a 1997 gmc sierra ext cab 4x4 and I have to keep replacing the belt every 6 months so that it won't squeak. I also replaced the tensor with the same result.

    Have you checked closely for possibility of oil or antifreeze dripping on somewhere, without you really noticing ?

I had the same problem with the after market serpentine belt, i replaced it with the OEM and found it not to squeak. Have a closer look at the V groves on the belt and the pulley, I found the V grove on the belt had a different size then the groves on the pulley making them squeal. Good luck and hope this helps.

I have a 2006 GMC sierra and the a belt squeaks

If both belts are the same age it wouldn't hurt to replace both of them, spray them with a belt dressing before installing new belts. You can get this dressing at Autozone and possibly the belts too. Good luck.
