When I needed to replace my serpentine belt; I went to the Goodyear website http://www.goodyearbeltsandhose.com/...tCarSearch.jsp
where I looked up the belt size by plugging in the year, make, model and engine.
They also have a store locator http://www.goodyearbeltsandhose.com/...buy/index.html
where your plug in you Zipcode.

OR 4x4

OKay, instead of making a new topic, I'll Hijack this.

I got my truck washed last Sunday, and it came out sqeaking up a storm after the underbody wash (Mi. Boys will appreciate that ). ANyways, I got the belt good with the Anti-Sqeak spray (the name escapes me right now), and it would go away, then come right back, but when it was gone, a definate 'shhhhhhhh' sound was present. (say it outloud and you'll get the noise). So I got a new belt, and havent put it in yet (Damn weather!). I also bought a Idler Pulley, but was wondering if that was likely the problem before I put it on (so I can return it if not needed). Its goofy that it came on only after the was though, huh?

Anyone?
