squeaking under the hood.

I have just started to notice some squeaking under the hood. Not belt squeal, but actual squeaking while the truck is running. Bearing maybe?

Does the noise go away when you take the serpentine belt off? If so, try turning all of the pulleys by hand to see if one is sticking or loose.

Belt tensioner pulley or idler pulley would be my first suspects.

Yeah, I have a squeak as well. It is not that bad and goes away pretty quickly. I know it is one of my pulleys, just gotta get in there and fix it soon.
