belt squeek wont go away

So i replaced my waterpump and tensioner and now i got a squeek that wont go away. i sprayed rubbing alcohol on it to clean off any coolent residue and it stops but then comes back when it dries. ya think a new belt would cure my problem? its annoying as hell makes my truck look like a turd in my opinion. lol any input would be nice. thanks derek

You could try cleaning the pulleys (especially the grooved ones) to get any stray material off them (I use a wire "toothbrush") and see if that works. Depending on the age of your belt, you might replace it (some folks with noisy belts have had good luck with the Goodyear Gatorback belts). Cheers!

i had the same problem myself.
i ended up just getting a new belt and that fixed it.
but i did clean the pulleys before the new belt and they were really dirty.

Had the same problem on my 96. Replaced all the idlers. Finally I bought a Gator Back off of amazon. There felt covered, and so quite. Heres the link if you want one.

Put a dab of di electric grease on both sides of the belt, works every time as long as its not a pulley squealing
