Question 00 taurus sqweal

my mother in law has a 00 taurus. right away upon startup it sqweels, and sometimes continues to for some time. dont think it's the belt. sprayed some stuff on the belt made no difference. sounds like it is coming from around the throttle body area. which includes the end of the head, trans engine joint, ect. was wondering if this might be a common ocurrence, before i send her to the shop, $$. maybe lose bolt,cam bearing or bushing, trans engine not mated bolts tight? help.
thanx

Re: 00 taurus sqweal

I got a 96 taurus, Duratec, it does the same thing. I had no clue what it was until now :D

What exactly is the idler pulley and where is it?

Thanks

Basically it is a tensioner.

Should be between your alt and power steering pully
