At one time I had this LONG list of things that WD-40 could be and had been used on, and I believe spaying it on squeking belts was one of its uses????...Seems that these "snake belts" get dried out and get slick, a small shot of WD-40 "limbers" them up some....Of course theres always take a wrench, tighten that belt up and give it a shot of "Belt Dressing"....My Jeep was going through belts like crazy , until I finally broke down bouight the high dollar belt....No more El Cheapo belts...
Now here's something scarry!!!!...Last year my neighbor and I were talking, my Jeep was running, then all of the sudden it was like "POW" and the engine died????...Looked under the hood that belt had broken, and it was wrapped around the lower pulley...No problem!!! WRONG!!!!...That belt went behind that lower pulley and actually went inside the crank seal!!!...I had to pull the radiator, sheilds, lower pulley and timing cover to get all of the pieces out!!!!..Good Thing???..I noticed that the timing chain tenisioner was broken, and the timing chain was loose...That El Cheapo belt cost me almost $200.00 when it was over,two week of using the wifes car to get to work, and lets not talk about the cuts scraps and band aids I wore for weeks after....So check them belts every so often as to not so much the top side, but the grooved side for cracks, if it has cracks in it, theres your first sign to change it out!!!!!
