Same thing happened to my car with the previous owner, and in the same situations.

Turned out to be the belt tensioner.

Mine did the same thing. Its just that your belts get wet when it rains. Go to Autozone and Pick up any belt treatment spray, I got mine for about $6. Turn your steering wheel all the way to the right. Go to the passenger side of the car. Behind the front tire you will see the PROBLEM belt... Give that sucker a dose of the old medacine and listen to it do wonders.. thumbsup

Mine has never done this with the new belt tensioner. I even have the right side engine plastics off, so the belt is exposed to the elements.
