I don't recommend any aerosol belt dressing, most are no different than WD-40 in composition. I'd check your belt for wear, cracks, and possibly foreign debris (ie: pebbles, glass etc). If your belt appears to be structurally sound, then take a lithium grease-stick and hold it on your belt for a few seconds as the engine runs... this will quieten your belt.

Or you could tighten up the belt as well. Once belts get old, they start to stretch, resulting in a loose squeaky belt.

answer make sure belt has correct tension. also use belt dressing on belt. available at any auto store

I'd highly discourage using any type of aerosol spray for two reasons:

1. The sounds usually gets worse seconds after you apply it.

2. It usually leaves a nasty residue not only on the belt, but on parts around it and if the belt is too loose and you have to tighten it, you have to clean all that crap off of it.

It's either too loose or there's something wrong with stated above.

What causes a squeaky alternator and how can you fix the problem on a 96 Chrysler town and country?

A squeaky alternator is sometimes a sign that the fan belt or something associated with it is squeaking, not the alternator. (Possibly the belt or belt tensioner) So first I'd make sure it's actually the alternator squeaking before I proceeded. You could try some belt dressing on the belt and see if that helps or changes the squeak. If however it is the alternator, that's usually a sign the bearing's gone out and you will need to replace the alternator.

You just bought a 2002 Chevy Malibu and it has a squeaky fan belt how can you go about fixing it?

first try buying a small can of fan belt dressing and carefully put it on the SIDES of the belt (where it contacts the pulley). Also the belt may be streched - so you can try to tighten the belt by adjusting the takeup adjustor. Or finally replace the belt - if none of these work. Your car does not have a fan belt. Belt dressing is bad mmmmkay. Messy and will cause more problems (redneck temporary fix). Make sure your belt is tight or have someone check it for you. If it is a serpentine belt (tension is spring loaded) check the tensioner and check for bad pulley bearing. But in 2002, most fans are electric. which means no belt to squeal.

Is there any type of spray or lubrication for a fan belt in a 2000 jeep grand Cherokee?

Almost any store that sells parts and lubricants for vehicles will have a spray can of belt dressing. This stuff will quieten howling or squeaky belts but it's typically just a temporary fix. Glazing of the belt can be caused by excessive heat or by improper tension on the belt causing it to slip on the pulleys which could indicate a more serious problem.
