Serpentine Belt Loud Noise
I have a 2000 Taurus wagon with 59,000 miles. The serpentine belt started squealing after my wife drove through a few rain puddles after a heavy rain. I had a local mechanic change the belt, but after a few days it started squealing again. The same mechanic put some heavy weight gear oil on the belt, which kinda quieted down, but it started squealing again a few days later. Anyone know what may be the problem? Should I take it to the dealer and what price am I looking at to get it fixed?
