Q: The front of the vehicle squeals when accelerating, it isn’t the belt or tensioner I replaced them and it’s not the u joints

asked by on

My truck makes a squealing noise that. Sounds exactly like a serpentine belt issue but I replaced the belt and tensioner and it did not solve the issue and it only squeals when I am accelerating in drive, but what confuses me is that when I lifted the back tires off ground and put it in drive and accelerated, it did not do it, by that I know it is not the u joints or the pulleys because I have spun all the pulleys and they are fine, is there anything else that makes that sound? Plz help
