[DML] Re: Engine squeal

Check the two small bearings on the A/C belt. Just lift the belt off 
and spin them. Or take the A/C belt off and run the engine. If there 
is any noise or roughness replace them. If you have not replaced them 
in the last 3 years, they are probably bad. The muffler heat makes 
them fail rather often. Cheap fix. 

I've seen them mis-diagnosed as water pump and alternator noise.
