Annoying Squeak

So my truck started an annoying squeak. I think its one of the pulleys. Can I just use some kind of lube on each pulley to make this go away? If so what kind? Haven't ever had to deal with something like this before.

You could try a light weight oil on the bearing, but more than likely the bearing is going to need replaced on on e of the pulleys, usually on the tensioner.

I had to replace my tensioner and idler assembly to get rid of my squeak. I went ahead and put on a new belt for good measure. Its easy and worth the piece of mind.

Wonderful. lol. Is there a way to actually check? Should just have to pop the belt off and one bolt holding the tensioner on right?

i tried to take the belt off and spin each pulley to identify the culprit, thought is was the tensioner, replaced it and the squeak was still there so I went ahead and replaced the assembly and put a belt on since I didn't know how long it had been on there. Maybe mine was just the belt and I spent to much money on new parts. Do you know how long your belt has been on the truck?

I think the last time I did a belt was 3 years ago.

I would start by taking the belt off and checking the pulleys. This would be a good time to check the belt as well mine was a little frayed on the inside edge, that was another reason I replaced it.

None of this is that big of a job, just make sure you still have the belt routing diagram on the fan shroud before taking it off, I had to reference it a couple of times. Also the top radiator hose goes through the belt so a replacement belt will require the hose to be removed. Just FYI if you have never had it off.

You can get the rad hose for 2 alternators, then it does not go through the belt.
