Annoying squeeking sound

Started a few days ago, the loudest, most obnoxious squeek coming from the engine bay. My dad thought it was an idler pully? Going bad, so he replaced that. Ran the car a couple minutes, no squeek. This morning on my way to school, squeek is back. ): any ideas on how to stop this annoying sound? Maybe a different pully gone bad? Any suggestions on how to check would be appreciated.

I did not, but the belt looked pretty good when we looked at it. No dry rot or anything.

Take the belt off and spin the pulleys by hand. If any feel rough it could be your problem.

Thats the best advice at this point. However, just to make sure its not your belt, start it up, and while its squeeling spray some water on the belt from a spray bottle. If it stops, then you need to replace your belt.

Turned the pullies, none of them really felt bad. I dunno if i should take it to a shop and let them figure out what it is. They'd probably charge me out the ***.

Tensioner, or AC compressor. Mine was squeaking a couple days before it locked up and flooded the car with smoke off the belt. Also herd alot of ppl say water pumps squeak just before they die, accompanied by some rattling/grinding sounds.. Good luck. Oh if it's a 5spd could be the release bearing. Use a stethoscope on the accessories while it's running too

My guess is water pump. My dads ford actually rusted the pump blades clean off once. When you run the car and it's warmed up. Turn your heater on. Pay attention to the temp of the air. If it starts really hot but then cools off and doesn't warm up then it's your pump. what is happening is you're not pumping enough water through the heater core and the air is cooling it faster than it can heat up. How many miles do you have?

Also, im going to try that turning on the heat thing, because every once in awhile it does sound like a slight grind going on.

The guy locally that rebuilds starters and alternators said my rear bearing in my alt went bad and was squeaking. He rebuilt it and now that I can't hear it anymore I can now hear that my throw out bearing is bad. Fix one find another.

Also like he said bearings commonly go out. With the belt off try to wiggle all the pullys from side to side nothing should move at all.
