What is this?

It's squeeking and has been since Sunday when it got wet from heavy rain.

The belt seems to be in pretty good shape. The squeeking is coming from that pulley. It quiets down when I give it some gas. Is it the compressor bearing? I hope not.

My father is coming tomorrow to take a look, he'll know right away...just can't wait. The parts store closes at five or six on Sundays and he won't be here until atleast four.

The belt seems tight but I'm no mechanic.

The welds on your whistler tips are weakening.

It always squeeks for a few days after getting wet but this time it hasn't stopped. This could be an entirely different problem though.

not wd 40.

get some belt lubricant but do not use wd 40.

wd40 is often treated as a lubricant and to a very small extent it is but what it's main purpose is to displace water, not lubricate.

Could very well be water in your gas. You're gonna have to taste it to know for sure.
