Default squealing noise

Soo theirs a squealing noise coming from the engine bay. Its not the belt its in good condition and tight, I think its the harmonic balancer cause it looks like its wableing and the tensionor seems a little loose but the bolt is tight. I gotta get a video up some time.

Put your ear to the air intake and make sure it isn't an intake noise.

Mine did the same but only when the weather cooled and got moist for me it was the tensioner pulley.Oops this was 5 months ago.

if it isn't the belt, try removing the belt and turn each pully by hand to see which one gives you resistance....I'm also bettin on the tensioner.
