Default Chirping sound?

Hello everyone,
My name is Rich(new member here). Like the website and the people on here from what I have read when it comes to help/advice which is why I signed up.
Anyhow, I have a question I can't figure out. I own a 99 Ford Ranger Super Cab Automatic V6 4.0L. I have what sounds like a chirping sound is the best I can describe it. I am not sure if it is the fan belt or Alternator? I checked the belts and they are okay. I even sprayed some WD-40 but nothing. Any idea? I asked a buddy of mine who is a car freak and suggested those 2 things might be the cause but to log on here and get your feedback.
Thank you in advance for your help and have a great day wherever your at.
Rich

I just went through this. Does the belt look aligned with the pullies? That was my problem. I also replaced my tensioner and the idle pulley as I as told these two items do go bad. Very easy install.

Thank you folks for the reply's. RandSand, what does a tensioner and idle pully run these days? I admit I not a truck mechanic but will learn as I go and do have a friend who said he would help me. Also how long did it take you to replace and install? Thank you again. I showed your reply to my friend and he agrees with you that it might be worn out.
