Default Starting squeaking

Well pals, as the titale says, my truck makes an strange squeaking noice when I start her up.

Ive used the "search" tool... but the results are different from my issue.

Please look (better, listen) at the attachad video and consider this:

1- Ive got a new camshaft synchronizer, both original Motorcraft (instaled on November 2010)

2- I replaced the belt (not the tensioner, just the belt); instaled on december 2010

The squeaking is just when I start the truck, just for 1 or 2 seconds or even less. Afterwords it completely desapears.

Watch Video please...

As I dont want to change parts randomly, I need you help. Can it be the belt tensioner? Alternator?

could be an idler or tensioner pulley. Or any pulley for that matter, but most likely the idler or tensioner.

Thanks dude. I spoke to Clinton in PMs.

According to a guy in YouTube, it could also be the starter motor. He sayed after he clean it, the squeaking went away.
But... buuuut, this doesnt make sense. since I bought the truck it makes this squeaking.
After I replaced my belt in december (before summer holidays) this noise went away, now its back!

I bet the pulley tensor it the troublemaker.

BTW... what do you mean by the "idler"... some technic names are not available in my english diccionary

The idler pulley, it just sorta moves the belt in the right direction. Its next to the A/C pulley and above the tensioner pulley


I never personally heard of starters making squeaking noises, but that could be a possibility too. When my pulleys were squeaking, it first started out as a short little squeak on startup and just kept getting worse overtime to the point where it was very loud and wouldn't go away.
