What causes the fan belt in a 1993 tracker to squeal?

It can be several things, either by themselves, or in combination. 1) the belt has dried up and isn't as grippy any more. This causes it to slip and squeal. There are sprays available to restore grip on belts which might help. 2) the belt has stretched a little, which causes it to slip and squeal. Retension, usually by adjusting the alternator position and it should be OK. 3) one of the auxilliaries(alternator, power steering pump, water pump) is about to seize. If it's harder to rotate the belt will slip and squeal.

I had the same problem, so I took the belt off and washed it in soapy water. I then took a wet, soapy cloth and wiped off all of the pulleys. The squeal in my Aerostar was caused by a leaking power steering pump, which leaked fluid on the belt, causing it to slip and squeal.

Loose belt -- replace or lubricate ADD-ON If it is a metallic squeal that continues for a minute or so after the car starts it could be your water pump bearing. Get your mechanic to check it out and replace before you need a tow truck.
