Thought belt was loose, but it's tight. Autozone recommended spraying the pulleys with oil. Did not work. Noise is high pitch squeal.

    Replace belt and tensioner after cleaning that oil off !!! Never spray or put anything on a belt i don't care what anybody tells you!
    Be sure to check all the componets the belt runs on and replace as needed.

    You are welcom, that should take care of the problem. The tensioners give some problem on this van.
    Replace belt even if it is new!
