Serpentine belt squeals, especially when engine is cold. It stops when you get above 40 mph.

Make sure the tentioner is okay, and that the belt tention is good, but an old dry belt will squeal.

There should be a square1/2 inch hole most likely on the bar that leads to the tension pully, where you can put a 1/2 inch breakover bar or ratchet to depress the tension bar/spring, alowing the removal and replacement of the belt.

My belt broke on my 2000 chevrolet tracker,need belt diagram

Should be 2 belts. Which one did you break?

If it is the larger one there is a tentioner to your left of the center of the engine as you are facing the engine, somwhat centered relative all the other stuff there. With everthing tight in the engine compartment it took me a couple of minutes to recognize it.

If it is the smaller fan belt, I had to take the fan off and adjusted it the old way, with a pry bar. Off to your right of the center of the engine as you face the engine there are 3 bolts kinda grouped together. I donot recall which one you loosen, but one of these will give you slack, use a pry bar to snug the beld up good, then tighten (while holding tight). Reassemble the fan.

Hope this helps.
