    could be something on the belt, or your tensioner is going out. Check both out.
    hope you find the problem!:)

    Belts are probably coming loose.
    If you have the 3.4L - there are three belts and each belt has a separate tensioner which usually is the 'accessory' that the belt is driving.

    yeah sounds like either your belts are loose or that one of the belts or pullys is going bad. try spraying something like pb blaster on your pullys one at a time (making sure not to get it on the belts of course) and see it that fixes it, and then you can figure out which one it may be.
