Belt squeaks when cold, weak tensioner?
Hi, guys, the annoying guy, me is still here. After replacing the intake manifold, a bad MAP sensor, a bad alternator with an AAP refurbished P**, the belt, the sway bar link, and fighting with p0171 because of vacuum leak, now the car is running great. One relatively small thing here. I would really appreciate for your suggestion.
Now the drive belt squeaks when it'* cold in the morning. Water helps for 1 minute. I have a bottle of belt conditioning by CRC and it helps for a couple of hours, maybe. After the 30 miles on the highway probably, the squeak goes away. I can more or less feel that the belt is tighter when warm with my fingers (it could be psychological effect though). The odd thing is that I didn't notice the squeak with my old alternator and the new belt. So what do you think, a weak tensioner? It'* kind of cold here this several days, 38F or so and quite some cars on the streets are squeaking like mine. It'* not that loud. I can barely hear it on the highway. But it'* quite annoying.
Oh, yes, which belt dressing liquid do you suggest if it could help? Thanks!
