Squealing


My first impression would be the serpentine belt is worn ...specifically it has "glazed" and stretched so it no longer has the ability to effectively grip the drive pulleys it spins. Typically when the serpentine belt loses "traction" it will squeal as it slips on the metal pulleys of the accessories it is designed to operate. There also may be a problem with the the tensioner ...a device used to keep proper tension on the serpentine belt. This is an easy and relatively inexpensive repair ...probably cost between $100 and $200 ...depending on whether the tensioner needs replacing.
You really need to get this fixed. If the serpentine belt fails ...it breaks or comes apart ...you will lose power steering and the water pump as the two critical accessories the belt operates. Obviously the loss of power steering can make the car difficult to drive and the loss of the water pump will cause an engine overheat condition fairly quickly. The A/C and alternator will also drop off line but these aren't as critical as the steering and water pump.

Yellow fluid leaking onto serpentine belt


yellow fluid is most likely anti freeze. check the radiator hoses but because of the location, my guess is that it is the water pump leaking. make sure you change the tension pulleys when you change the pump.

Inspection

Inspect the drive belt for signs of glazing or cracking. A glazed belt will be perfectly smooth from slippage, while a good belt will have a slight texture of fabric visible. Cracks will usually start at the inner edge of the belt and run outward. All worn or damaged drive belts should be replaced immediately.


Removal & Installation

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Rotate the auto tensioner clockwise to release tension, then remove the drive belt.

To install:
  1. Install drive belt (A). Route the belt over the components in the following order: Crankshaft pulley - A/C pulley - idler pulley - generator pulley - water pump pulley - P/S pump pulley - tensioner pulley.
  2. Rotate auto tensioner arm in the counter-clockwise moving auto tensioner pulley bolt with wrench.
  3. After putting belt on auto tensioner pulley, release the auto tensioner pulley slowly.

Had my serpintine belt tighten due to squealing, now my car is making a grinding sound. There is now fluid leaking from my car can it be the water pump bearing anyway


It's extremely possible the squealing was the water pump all along. Your car has a belt tensioner that automatically keeps proper tension on the serpentine belt.Manually tightening the belt most likely put more strain on the bad water pump and the bad bearing you heard is well on it's way out.

Removing the serpentine belt


ase mechanic:
there is a diagram somewhere under the hood that gives you belt routing and where the tensioner is and which way it swings to take belt off. sometimes its a 15mm and the longer the wrench the easier it is to swing it.
