engine squeal update

Sorry it took so long to get this done, but I've moved and had to wait for my DSL line to activate.

My '93 Plymouth Laser was squealing like a pig and I was at a loss as to what was causing it. From responses here, I was worried about one of the drive pulleys. Belts were all new and installed within specs. I measured and remeasured the play and all was good. On a whim, I tightened each belt one at a time, restarting without the belt on. I've learned that specs are sometimes misleading. By tightening the main drivebelt, the squealing miracuosly stopped.

It's always an easy answer when you think the worst, eh?

Thanks for all the responses, you folks are great!

All things being equal the simplest thing is usually the explanation.

Many times the quality of the belts used has a LOT to do with how they stay tensioned . Use only good quality replacements.
