Pulleys?

Somehow i might have a problem. My car is making a kind of weird chirping noise when it idles and also it just seems like it's not getting much power. I basically had the pedal on the floor and it didn't seem like it was accelerating fast at all. Anyways I was told that it might be the pulleys so I went ahead and ordered some steeda underdrives from american muscle. I was planning on getting these sometime anyway but hopefully it will fix the problem. I don't really know that much about cars so if this sounds far fetched at all, don't hate please. Lol.

I would take the belt off and spin all the pullies making sure that they spin freely other than crank of course. A buddy of mine had this happen to him and i told him the same thing. Two days later his water pump froze up ate the belt and scuffer the inside of the block pretty bad. Also seen compressors do the same thing minus the scuffing of the block

Wow well I definatly don't want that. I will do that but here is what I would say a more accurate description of the problem. When I stand on the gas the car would normally fly up the speedometer. Now when I do it just inches it's way up. No idea what it could be but maybe someone here would know.

There is no definite clue that was given suggesting the tensioner. And his tensioner doesn't look like that.
Waterpumps are known to chirp at low rpms when they start going out.

No I found out what it is. It's my ac compressor. It only did it when the ac was on. But I changed out a pulley and it stopped chirping. I'm still waiting on my underdrives to come in tho.
