I need some help, I am getting an odd squeal noise when I push on the gas pretty hard. It only happens when I take off fairly fast otherwise normal driving nothing happens. I have a 99 sonoma with a 2.2:mad: . The squeal sounds like its coming from the front of the engine. So my guess is belt slipping, but the belt looks fine, no cracking or old age showing. Anybody have any ideas?

By the way if it helps its a 5 speed.

please help.

Ya id say belt. Check the tensioner to make sure its putting a good amount of force on the belt. Check the belt when the engines running to see if its whipping around. If everything looks good, put soem belt dressing on it to promote better grip. Either that or change the belt to a Goodyear Gatorback.
