belt tensioner
ive been hearing about the belt tensioner going bad and making noise, just wondering what it sounds like, i have more noises coming from under the Hood than i can count, would be nice to eleminate one, and when its going bad does it constantly make noise, or just every once in a while

on my moms passport it sounded like a loud squeaking sound. it's hard to explain, but it's a constant squeaking sound & it's pretty high pitched.

You will hear it mostly at idle, and then it will go away.
