i remeber on my old car i bought a new belt fom aoutozone and squeaked like a bitch lol, i took a bar of soap and rubbed it on the part of the belt that runs on the pulley while it was running and it fixed it but i don't know how long it will last cuz i blew it up a week later :biggrin:

I had a belt from autozone that was just bad rubber or had a glaze or sumthing. No matter what I did, it would squeal like a somebitch till the motor warmed up a lil bit. I tried everything I could think of and it never stopped till I bought a nother one. :dunno:

yea some of them do come like that..but i'd think after a while of that shit burnin on the pully it would get to fresh rubber. musta been a bad belt. belts can be a pain at times. i still gotta replace the rest of mine...1 down 3 to go.

all new belts stretch, thats why it says to re-tighten the belt on the package

belt dressing is only an excuse to put off changing a worn out belt. a properly operating belt will not squeal. it will squeal if its too loose, the pulley or the belt is glazed or it's contaminated with oil.

yea i think my old pullys on my other regal had a lil oil on them. that engine wasn't as nice as my new one is. Yea this time i didn't put any belt dressing.

i had the same prob...even worse maybe because the belt use to start smoking. i thought i had it tight but the reason for the squealing was that it wasn't tight enough, when the enine would run the belt would jump/flicker. try to ensure the there equal tension in the belt around the pulleys and keep in mind that there should be a right amount of slack.
good luck

damn .... 1 down .... unless thats all you could afford to do ... i would assume get in there once ...and replace all three ... instead of doing the same job two or three times ..

but yeah i too was gonna say new belts stretch after a short time
