Default "Squelch" noise while accelerating?

There is a weird noise that comes from under the hood when i accelerate. The only word i can think of to describe the noise is a "squelch" if that makes sense to ya. it doesn't do it if i accelerate slowly...is it a belt or something? what ya think?

yea it sound like a belt, hopefully you can get rid of the sound. i have that noise in a jeep and its just a streched out belt so if you get a new belt, it should fix it

Which belt do you think that would be? Don't they make a spray/lubricant for noisy belts?

02 4.0 runs only one serpentine belt. Replace with a Gatorback belt. Very easy to replace.

i guess i forgot to mention that its barely noticable. you can only hear it if the radio is off. and it stops when i get up to about 40-45mph...
