I have a 4.6 with 88000 miles that was squealing under the hood. I pulled the tension off the belt and found a little movement back and forth on the alternator, nothing on the other idlers and pulleys. I replaced the alternator and still had the squeal. I replaced the belt and the squeal stopped. Now when I rev the engine up, the belt jumps one notch on the crank pulley. I just replaced the tensioner/pulley and it still jumps. I had no problems with this until I replace the alternator. The belt does not jump at idle. Any ideas?

I am new to your forum! Love it! I have a 2008 V6 Mustang of course, and have a problem you guy"s or gals can help me with, I live in Iowa, my car sat for a weak due to snow storm it had a weak battery. I replaced with brand new one, driving down the street my car started to stutter and miss, no power at gas pedal it stalled! Not sure what to go from here! I have some talent working on cars but havn"t worked on them lately. I can be hands on if needed, I have had my car for 3yrs no problems. Any Advice please!!!
Problem solved, had purchased a belt from auto zone and their belts do not have a deep enough groove and the ribs look too wide. Purchased a Gates belt, and it solved the problem. Thanks to everyone for the help. I'm ready to BURN rubber!!!
