What happens if you do not repair a squealing belt?

If a new or 'young' belt is loose, likely the tensioner is going to have to be replaced. 2 other causes of squealing are a worn belt, or if the surface of the belt has become glazed are a couple of causes of squealing. NOTE: The belt tensioner has a built-in wear indicator - it'll be hard to see, but there really are markings on the side to…
Your 1992 Honda prelude 22l just started making a consistent squealing noise when driving it stops squealing when you brake or when the car is at a stand still please help?
