Did this video help you?

etchosts: I hear a high pitch squeal especially when my car is cold. It is coming from tensioner/alternator area could this be the problem.

Paul Wilson: Dear 1A Auto Experts, How do you jack up the engine? Frankly, my top fear is damaging my oil pan if I jack it up.

1A Auto Parts: You may want to take a like at it with the car running to see if it's moving around at all or looks like it's loose.

david cobb: Thanks so much!!! I followed your instructions step by step and it was as easy as you made it look, big weight off my shoulders. I worried about taking the motor mount off. Glad I seen this video, definately saved me some cash. The instructions for the installation of the tensioner said you might have to remove the fender well and wheel assembly!!! (Yeah, ok...) Thanks for the video, I really appreciate it!!!

OneHDNetwork: What was the mechanic looking at towards the end he looked like he was having trouble with the belt, I'm only asking because you didn't show the new belt tensioner installed, and in my malibu the belt is touching the tensioner which im sure isnt normal, and when i turn on the AC it sounds like the belt is peeling out on the tensioner then stops, I'm just wondering if buying a new tensioner would help or do you think the belt size is incorrect

1A Auto Parts: If the belt is squealing it could be the tensioner or you may need a new belt.

1328daviess: Thanks for posting these videos Changing a starter on a 2001 malibu hope it all goes well with it

dre5709: same here when engine is cold i hear squealing when accelerating but when engine is warm the noise is gone

1A Auto Parts: The safest way to do it is with a chain fall. There may be a couple of loops or hooks on the motor to attach the chains too. You would also need to loosen or remove the bolts from the motor mounts. It can be a little involved to do it the correct way. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

Laura M: THANK YOU!!!! Me (31 F) and my 65 year old mother just replaced my belt. Your video was a lifesaver!!! :)

The1stMachinist: I have a '98 2.4. I was wondering if I can just replace the pulley on the tensioner? everything looks good. just the tensioner pulley has a little play.

1A Auto Parts: You should be able to if the belt's out of the way of the tensioner.

1A Auto Parts: The belt tensioner may be loosing some of it's tension which could be why the belt is slipping. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

1A Auto Parts: You will want to replace the entire part and not just the pulley. Normally if the pulley has some play, the spring on the tensioner most likely has lost a lot of its spring and could fail.
