Question about 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse
Is it worse when cold or wet? Could be a lose or worn serpentine belt, or a bad tensioner.
Check belts for any cracks on it (check both sides, inside normally cracks first)
Check tension of the belt, with your fingers you should be able to twist the best roughly 45 degrees, if it's a lot more than that check the tensioner, try tightening the bolt to add tension.
