Question about 2001 Lincoln Continental
2001 lincoln continental, serpentine belt replaced 6 times in past four years, screeching starts again each time, last time belt replaced was only three weeks ago and screeching already back again
Can you narrow down exactly where the screeching is coming from? Possibly it is from the A/C pump pulley needing to get up to speed because of a faulty clutch or bad bearings. Otherwise bad bearings in one of the other pulleys may be causing this but first you need to know exactly where the screech is coming from which is a pain to find out if you haven't yet, I know. Let me know how this turns out.

You must make sure all pullies are properly lined and clean out all groves. Moreover, you might need to replace the belt tensioner. Check your idler(s) to make sure they spin freely and the bushings are not sticking and/or froze up. Do not use any belt dressing or other sprays whatsoever.
Your public library will have a manual covering your mechanical repair. Moreover, they have the automotive shops online software called AllData. It is the best auto technician database available today. You can print out specific troubleshooting procedures, diagrams, step-by-step istructions, and soforth. The typical person cannot afford to pay for this service, just automotive dealerships, etc... that is why the public library made it available to everyone and for free to view and print out material. This should Fixya! Good Luck!
