Re: 2007 Taurus w/new fan belt squealing worse than ever
replace the belt tensioner
the tension, or tightness of the belt so to speak, is what keeps it from squeeling
a good tensioner, a good belt and everything should be queit
there is however one other part of the equation, although not normally a problem with the Taurus line-up
have you had any other components of the system replaced recently? Like an altenator or water pump? if one of those is wrong and the pulley is not ligned up with all the other, this can cause squeeling problems and problems with the belt falling off......
I'd put on a Gates brand belt, and a new tensioner if it were my car......
