Noisey Serpentine Belt

1999 Ford F-150 XLT 4dr Extended Cab SB


So far so good. Great ride, decent
mileage, good looking, and am
satisfied. My only complaint is a
noisey serpentine belt. It started
making this horrible noise one day,
that sounded like lifter noise. My
mechanic smeared some silicon goo on
the belt and it istantly stopped making
the noise. Now I have my own tube of
silicon goo (A grease I think)and every
couple weeks I pop the hood and smear a
little goo on the belt and ride in the
quiet I'm used to. Anybody have a real
fix for this problem ? Do you suppose
an aftermarket belt would solve the
problem ? Or would a OEM replacement
work ? Or would I have the same old
problem ?

Best Features

4 dr extended cab.

Worst Features

The dash layout.The ash tray and cup holder are too far away for the driver. The lighter doesn't need to be right by the driver. I'm not 100% convinced of the worth of clearcoat paint. Seems like the slightest bird crap or acid rain etches or eats through the clearcoat.
