Default Re: Squealing and I made it worse!

Ended up replacing the idler pulley and put on a new serpentine belt (just to be sure).

No more squealing! It's humming nice now! Unfortunately I whimped out on doing it myself, but I watched and learned.

Total cost: $56.71

Thanks guys!

I might look small and yes, I'm a chick, but I shoot, throw, hit, and hunt. I highly suggest you don't mess with my truck!

Not bad for a first repair. Idler Pulley is pretty common to go out. Glad we can help Kat.
