I changed the belt on my car because I was having a loud squeaking sound when accelerated and when it was cold. After I changed the belt it stopped for a couple of months and then it started again. I sprayed some WD-40 on it and it stopped for a little but now it is still doing the same thing, when I accelerate. Now it has a loud humming sound with it. What could that be?

does this mean the oil cooler is bad

I have a 2000 Lincoln LS, recently it was very cold down here and I think my engine froze over or something, had new freeze plugs put in, new water pump (because all of the fins that push the coolant thru the engine on the old one had broken off I guess it did that when I crank it up). Before I changed the water pump I had a new radiator, thermostat, and the freeze plugs put in, but now no coolant is getting to the radiator period, neither the intake or output hose to and from the radiator warms up, the new waterpump is moving coolant because I removed the hose and crank the car to see and it is pushing coolant to the block but nothing is coming out of the block, could the block be clogged and if so is there any special tool to use to clear it out. I am stumped because I have put so much money into this problem and the dealership is about to send me to the poor house, it seems like it would be an easy fix but I cant figure out what to use. The link below is something I ran across and is wondering would this work to clear it out. please help.

I just noticed about a week ago, (Feb. 14,2011) that my car was leaking a clear, oily fluid. It appears to be coming from the right side (passenger side),just before the front tire. I had the oil changed and a new A/C filter (I received a message on my message center that read "replace A/C filter soon" or something like that)right before Christmas. It may have been leaking since then, but just noticed the leak on the driveway recently. also, a week or so ago (i don't drive this car often) i noticed a puff of white smoke when i started it. i had just driven about 20 miles, i had stopped to eat lunch, and the smoke happened when i restarted the car to leave the restaurant.

We've been experiencing a few issues recently with our 04' LS. Started with the check engine light, then the wrench looking light for ETC mode began to turn on, which we had to turn the car off, then turn back on. It happens frequently. Then yesterday, we had the car parked turned off, just usng the radio. When we tried to turn the car on, it would not. So we went and purchased a battery, which we had tested and was told it was no good. So we purchased a new battery assuming that was the problem. However after installing the new battery, the car would still not turn on! We are unsure as to what the issue is, any suggestions?
