Squeaky engine Noise?

Everytime I start up my truck now regardless or warm or cold start up, it squeaks very loud under the hood. It used to only do it on cold start ups, but now it is constant and even does it when I'm driving. I'm not sure what it is, hopefully a quick fix?

ick belt dressing is the worst thing you can do.
VERY BAD IDEA!!!

simply some silicone lube will tell you if it's the belt. and then replace it.

i'm not totally sure what happens, but i've seen it put on and it only makes the noise worse, My guess is that there's something in it that reacts badly with the new belt materials. Also napa and carquest belts all seem to come back making squeaking and or chirping noises. I know that most do it yourselfers don't like to use oem parts, but there are certain parts that simply work better.

Does it do it when you shut the engine off? Like a sec after the motor stops moving?

all cummins do the squeak at shutdown, but on the squeaking i got the same problem and i know what it is. It is in fact the idler pully well actually part of the metal piece barely touches i mean BARELY touches another metal surface and it makes the squeaking. its on the passenger side of the belty system on the farthest left part take a look and youll see what im talkin about
