Read up on how to do the belt repairs that you requested. Spray some WD-40 on the belt, and see if that changes anything. You may have to remove the belt and then spin each and every pulley ( except of course the Crankshaft ) and use the stethoscope. Also, be sure to check your A/C pulley and your water pump. When you spin each pulley, see if it has any play in the bearing. Here is a link for repair info for your car http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online - dandd
