My suggestion is when you are at Tracy'* this w/e. Have someone sit in the car in gear...and a little rpm. Maybe you'll be able to hear it with a helper.

Also check your tensioner, see if it'* working properly. VPtruman had one that didn't want to return...but would kinda hold tension.

When under a load, your serpentine belt may be slipping. Most obvious causes are the belt itself, or the belt tensioner.

Check you belts for cracks, splits and glazed sections. Glazing will indicate slippage and can be on either side of the belt.

Then loosen the belts and check your idler and tensioner pulleys by spinning them and listening carefully for signs that there is damage. They should spin freely and without sound and should not wobble in any way.

While you are at it, check the condition of other pulleys and their accessory, including, water pump, alternator, A/C compressor, Power steering, pump, etc.

Report back what you find.

When the car is cold, remove the belt, and drive for a very short distance with the same conditions. Not too long, as you'll have no water pump during the test.
