Replace the tensioner pulley. If you take a look at it you will see a clean area towards the engine where the belt used to ride. The spring has become weak and it's leaning on a slight angle.
If I am correct, please look at the pulley, and come back and leave a testimonial and rate my assistance to help others that may experience a similar problem.

Sounds like something has slipped timing, camshaft most likely. If timing belt slipped, replace and set timing properly. Hopefully, valves did not get bent.

What makes a belt squeak?


Belts squeak for the same reason tires do when they spin. They are slipping. Something isn't turning as fast as the belt wants it to. On ford it's usually ether the idler sprocket or the tensioner. If you remove the belt and try spinning all of the pulleys by hand.( note the crank wont spin freely) you will usually be able to tell witch ones slipping.

I just had serpentein belt changed- then noticed another noise like squeeking noise right after starting car and also when reving engine or giving more gas. It is very specific to starting and...


sounds as though the belt is slipping. You should have a tension pulley to take up the slack. I'd take it back to the shop and let them know it is slipping. The more it slips, the slicker the belt will get and the more it will slip until eventually, it will burn, tear and will have to be replaced again.

Make sure they don't just spray it with belt dressing as that is a temporary fix. The tension must be correct. If you paid for the service, make sure they do it correctly.

The AC system is making an purge noise not sure if when the compressor kicks on the belt slips or what because it only does it while driving not at idle. In the cab windows up sounds like purge widows down...


If it is a purge noise the highside pressure may be getting to high and relieving pressure.Usually this can occur if there is too much freon or a restriction in the ac system.The defroster utilzes the ac as well which is why you can hear this. From your description it sounds as if the compressor clutch bearing is going bad.
