It may be the serpentine belt. Sometimes when you purchase an "on the cheap side" serpentine belt, it has a tendency of making noise even when the tension pulley has been change. Try purchasing a more expensive belt. The diamond back serpentine belt may be the best solution for this problem.

2000 Silverado Serpentine belt squeaks spray belt dressing on it and it stops squeaking only for a few seconds what's wrong?

I had the same problem with my 2000 Silverado. After spraying, it made the squeaks worse. The problem is that belt dressing works only for loose v belts. Not serpentine belts. The reason is the spray has a sticky adhesive that sets up causing the belt to drag on the pullies, compounding the problem. I had to have my belt replaced and the pullies cleaned by a shop.

Why would a 1998 Nissan Pintara quit while driving and not accelerate when the gas pedal is pressed?

It could very well be a stopped fuel filter. Follow the fuel line from the engine to the tank to find it. I have the same problem.. replaced fuel filter, replaced dizzy cap, rotor button, ignition leads.. (all 10 of them.).. turns out my problem was the mechanic put leads 1 - 2 backwards when he replaced the rotor button. Also, the screw in my rotor button would come loose, dont know if this is a common problem... but a bit of 'plumbers tape' solved it. :)
