    so every since it started raining in so cal
    it has been giving some areas of oc with floods
    since i have a lifted truck now and bigger tires
    i decide hey why not drive through nothing bad can happen
    after driving around and stuff
    my belt starts to squeak
    at first i thought it was my bearing or something
    but as i poured water on the belt it would go away
    is my belt dry or something
    i have sprayed some belt dressing but that didnt help
    should i go out and buy a new belt?
    if so what brand cause i dont know what brand is good
    at the stealership its 100 for the serpentine and thats wayyyy to much
    any ideas to fix this?

    $100 is way too much, the part costs less than $20 and takes 15 min. max to install. The hardest part is figuring out the routing with the new belt, but even that's not too bad with the help of the routing diagram.

    Are you sure an idler pulley isn't seized? Or maybe catching every so often?

    Good call, check the idler pulley. I'd probably pop the belt off it and see if it spins free and smooth.

    idler pulley
    so just pop the belt off and spin it myself
    is that the one that you can move with a wrench or is that the tensioner
    o yeah
    every so often
    it just starts to get really loud
    and then not loud go away
    and then when driving it comes back
    always at idle
