You didn't mention the alternator, power steering pump, or water pump. In fact, any pulley other than the crankshaft one can have a bad bearing or dry seal. Remove the belt and spin each pulley while listening for any rough noise or squeal. If it was the crankshaft, it might be time to check the oil. Start the engine with the belt off to see if it does squeal. Make sure the noise isn't coming from the radiator fan(s).

MAke sure you double check the belt order, our 1999 durango was taken to a shop to replace whole engine and the mechanic didnt put the belt back in properly but it ran, but made awful squeal noise, i replaced the tension pulley without fully removing the belt, like slip off then slip on, then changed alternator, then still hear it, changed ac compressor, still hear it, then i read this forum, and decide to check all pulley, i removed the belt off completely first time, and checked each pulley, all seems fine, then i put them back on according to the diagram under hood, it wasnt the same way i took them off so im like huh and it was much tighter this time, and the squeal is actually gone now. so double check the belt order! wont hurt to check!

Ac clutch squeals when i hit the gas no matter if ac is on or off but not at idle 98 jeep gc 5.9 need steps to replace clutch assembly


Are you certain that it's the clutch assembly?
Check the idler pulley. Poor tension in the idler pulley spring will cause the belt to squeal AT THE ALTERNATOR, and it may sound like it's coming from the AC.
The AC pulley typically "freewheels" when the AC is not on and the engine is running.
Have someone turn the AC on and off while the engine is running and watch the operation of the AC clutch. If it's working properly, the clutch should "click" and the back part of the pulley should start turning or try to turn.
If the squealing noise continues when the clutch is freewheeling, it's probably the idler pulley. If the AC Pulley won't start freewheeling, it's probably the clutch.
To remove the clutch system,
  • disengage the idler pulley and remove the serpentine belt from one of the pulleys.
  • rent, purchase or borrow a puller from a local auto parts retailer (Auto Zone and O'Reilly auto parts are both helpful)
  • some of the clutch systems have retaining bolts, some are just pressed in, figure out what you have before removing the clutch assembly using the puller.
  • The puller is also designed to help put the NEW clutch assembly back on the shaft.
The idler pulley assembly is a lot easier to replace.

I own a 1999 dodge durango slt 5.9, I keep hearing squeaks from under the hood. i had replace the pollys, belts and the tension. but still squeaking needs help fast!


Do you mean pulleys? Squeaks or Squeals ? Try some belt dressing, or to locate the culprit remove one belt at a time to see what belts and or pulleys are making the noise...

Squealing NOISE possibly from fan belt


Belts stretch from new. Try to tighten them again. Hopefully the are not glazed or this may stay with you.
