I didn't need a belt, but i had a squeek. Used what everyone here suggested, a GoodYear Gatorback. And it cured any and all squeeks I had.

You can spray some belt dressing on the belt and it will stop the squeek. They sell it at Wal-Mart in the automotive section.

Read them those belt dressings are for V belts almost all the time not serp belts the stuff will get all over everything under your hood I recommend just going and getting a new Gatorback belt that should really help all the squeeks. Cheap fixes are only temporary and are really not a fix at all man

mine did the same thing. mine was the tensioner pulley and bad belt. look at your truck and tell me if this thing https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...ad.php?t=82914. if it rattles back and forth than its the tensioner. if you decide to replace the pulley you might as well splurge the 15$ and get the gatorback. i have had no issues.
