Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora
If the squeek stops as the motor warms up replace it. You can also purchase some squeek stop spray and see if that helps before buying a new belt

not the water pump if the belt is removed. Maybe the alternator pulley. Some of the bearings go bad in the stock pulleys. I replaced my idler pulley for 25.00 bucks.

Very quick fix: shoot a little talc powder on the moving fan belt and pulley... this is only temporary.. be sure to check all pulleys and tensioners for misalignment and or loosening or wear... take the fan belt off and spin all the pulleys and listen for bearing noise, and check for uneven wear on the pulleys.... all indications of something begining to wear out...

wet it and see if that stops it?. If it does stop and comes back, you need a new belt.

Testimonial: "thanks heaps, I'll give it a go, appreciate help."
Noise could be the result of a dried out belt, a belt that needs adjustment or any one of the pulleys driven by the belt. The oil pump has nothing to do with the belt. Inspect it and try tightening it up a bit. If that does not help, remove the belt and check all the pulleys for noise and rough turning, replace the belt and re-tighten.

Could be the bearings in the alternator, power steering pump, or a/c compressor. Try spraying penetraing oil in between the pulley and the alternator, power steering pump, and compressor one by one. If the squeaking stops. Replace that part.
