Chirping sound?

I just replaced my serpentine belt, idler pulley, and belt tensioner because I have been getting a chirping sound when I start my truck in the morning. It chirps for about a second then it goes away. It only does this first start in the morning or if the truck has been sitting for a while. After doing this it is still making the noise. Anyone have any experience with this? Thanks in advance.

Do you think it could still be your accessory belt? What engine do you have?

To check the belt use some Belt Dressing but not too much.

if the noise goes away then you have found your problem.

If not the belt then as Blhde say, chk them out.
