May have water in the gas--get a bottle of gas guard from auto parts store and follow the directions. Could also be time for a new fuel filter.

Very loud squeaking

My guess is a pully is going bad on the tensioner. The new belt had more grip so it was able to force the bad pully to turn but now that the new belt is a bit worn it's beginning to slide as the pully gets worse...Does tha make sense? Solution: Remove the belt and turn each pully by hand. The pully's should turn very easily without ANY struggle. If you find a pully that has any stiffness ...(Or is hard to turn).....thats the bad one. Replace the bad pully and you will be a happy camper

Yes that can be causing the issue and if it is not fixed ASAP you will have REALLY big problems instead of just having to drain some fluid.
