After installing my underdrive pullies I get a squeeky sound from my engine. It goes away after the engine warms up though?
Anyone else have this problem? What can I do? I was told the tensioner has sealed bearings?

I had the same thing happen to me, only I dont have Underdrive Pullies.

I had the tensioner replaced about a year ago under warrenty.

The squeaking came back after the new tensioner was in, but I started spraying prestone belt dressing and the squeaking hasn't come back.

I suggest you go to the book and check the correct belt size. I had a similar problem. Mechanics would tell me I needed a new belt and then get the size off the old belt (rather than check the book). They would replace, once again, with the wrong size assuming the old belt was the correct size when it wasnt. Squeek would go away for a little while until the new belt stretched just enough to squeek. Always replace with the part # from the book, not from the number on the old part.
-good luck

I got a clicking noise after installing my pulleys and t/a. It goes away after the car warms up. I can't pinpoint it down to any one pulley though...
