    guys been getting some belt noise since it has gotten colder, when i start the truck when i leave for work in the evenings the noise is gone.... I have about 59000 miles on the truck and its around 3 years old now. Surely the belt wouldnt be going bad would it :confused:

    What is your recommended intervals for belt changes? Mine were squealing in the morning when there was some condensation on everything over the summer but my truck had about 100k on the factory belts. Replaced all 3 accessory belts and 1 idler pulley and all is well again.

    Mine used to do that too. I bought some belt dressing and after a couple applications it has disappeared.

    I had about 75000km on it when it started to squeal .. now I'm at 110000km and it hasn't returned
