Question about 2000 Chevrolet Impala
Try soaking a rag with brake fluid and soaking all the pulley that are available with the same brake fluid. CLOSE THE HOOD FIRMLY, I say this because brake fluid is the worlds best paint stripper. Start the engine and your squeak will be gone. If thuis fix doesn't last long you'll have to obtain another belt for sometimes the cords are exposed on the finish cut of the belt which causes the squeak.

Its one of two things.
1. your tensioner is bad and not creating enough tension on the belt causing it to slip when you accelerate.
2. it could be the belt.
let it go for a week or 2 and see if it stops, if not I would go ahead and replace the belt tensioner.

You can not tighten the belt, it is held on by the Belt tensioner...it's located a little to the left side of the waterpump...now it maybe getting weak, or your belt may need to be replaced...Sometimes they look good, with no cracks, but they get worn and streched out over time..or it may look shiny..either one of those will cause it too squeak..

The Corolla's has a hydralic belt tensioner. When you replace the serp belt you need to buy a factory Toyota belt. The reason why the after-market reproduction belts are slightly long or short. This
will either cause a squeaky belt problem or a over adjusted belt condition which could burn up one of your engines accessories (p/s pump, alt. etc.)

You might have a dry bearing in the alternator. I've had a squeaking noise from them.

Testimonial: "thanks! the noise is not constant. it cycles with the rpm's. it like squeak-squeak- squeak and progresses as the rpm's increase."
