Make sure its tight and make sure you replaced all the belts unless its serpentine. I would try some belt applicator aka belt spray

My serpentine belt has fallen off my 1991 chrysler lebaron 6cyl a number of times with no cause that is obvious to me. Any suggestions on how I prevent this in the future?

Most likely the belt tensioner but very common for the belt to be mis-routed even when it looks right. Back side idler, if applicable, also could be the culprit. Like other posted reply, check the belt tension with finger or thumb as well.

Engine squealing, seems to be belt, first day of this. After driving on freeway to work, noticed smoke coming from under the hood. ???? Safe to drive home 12 miles? Or should tow? I am scared to death

Well if it sound like the belt squeking, it is possible what you are hearing is the tenshioner pully bearings going out,and the smoke from the belt its,self. I would not drive the car untill its checked out. If the berings lock up it will snap the belt and you will be let on the side of the road. You can hve someone remove the belt the tenshiner pulley is the one that releases the belt from the other pullys if you can move it back and forth it needes to be replaced, some times you can spen the pully and her it grind. Check all of the pully the belt routs around also

Drive Belts Squeaking

First off, how many miles do you have on this engine?Since you changed the belt and still have the noise,you have one of your pulleys making this noise.Usually it's the ideler tensioner pully.Take the belts off.Turn the pulleys by hand including the alternator pulley.if you hear the slightest faint noise there's your problem.repalce the part or the pulley. A lot of times the alternator pulley does this,the front bearing or the rear bearing as well will make these nasty squeals.Find an auto electric shop that rebuilds alternators and have them replace the bearing for you,while your at it service your unit,it will save you in the long run.

My husband sprayed the belt of our 1998 dodge 1500 truck with prestone belt dressing and the sqeeking and shrieking eeeeeeeeeEEEEEEEEE sound stopped also the battery started to charge again, but upon...

U must clean all that belt dressing off (use a product called Brake Clean) and then replace the belt, also make sure none of the pulleys have bad bearings and the automatic belt tensioner is working right, this will correct your noise. Belt dressing is NEVER to be used on serpintine belts like the one used in your truck.

It could be that you got some water on your serpentine belt and that will cause it to squeak. Try buying a can of "belt dressing" from an auto store and spray it all over your belt and see if that will stop it. It's a cheap and easy thing to try before replacing expensive parts. Hope this works for you, let me know how it goes. Goodluck!
