chirps

I am having a some issues . There are random, non-consistent chirping noises that i thought was the belt, but after replacing the belt it still chirps. Sometimes the chirping is quiet, sometimes its loud, very loud. Secondly, the car stalled when coming to a stop (and the chirp is loud) . My car is an automatic. Any info would be great, thanks

Since you've replaced the belt, I'm guessing it's a bearing going out. Get a dowel rod / stethoscope, and touch it to each of your engine components while holding the other end to your ear. You should be able to hear which one it is.

Once I figure it out then that pulley needs to be replaced?

It will be the bearing on the pulleys shaft. The component will need rebuilt/replaced. Be sure to check the idler pulley, that's usually what goes out first.

First, take your belt off and check each pulley one by one. Check if they spin smoothly or harsh. If you feel any sort of abnormalities the bearing and/or pulley is bad. Remove and replace
