Are the fan belts properly tensioned (not loose) make sure the pulleys are all properly aligned and the pulleys and belts have no oil or coolant contamination. If the fan belts use an automatic spring loaded belt tensioner perhaps it is failing.
pullys look straight, they are new clean belts, ( doesn't have a auto tensioner )
I thought I properly tighened them , but I guess I'll try to make them tighter
