I don't know much about cars but I think you have to tighten that belt.

Tighten it or replace it. It probably has an automatic tensioner on it... I actually fixed my neighbors car for him once because I couldn't stand listening to his squeaky belts every morning at 6

I have already replaced the tensioner, it didn't help

Did you replace the belt when you replaced the tensioner? Belts get stretched out over time.

There's also some anti squeak stuff you can smear on it. Never had any luck with that stuff myself though. Is cheaper than a belt though, so it's worth a shot.

A lot of the time it collects dirt and makes it worse....

Not this one. I love hearing you say "crankshaft", and "clutch"

Alrighty, then. I'll stay out of conversations I know nothing about. I never knew there were 'automatic tensioners'. LOL
