Question On Belts Squealing

2397 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  rasterman
My 05 Outback has developed a high pitched belt squealing when first starting and idling, The belts were supposedly replaced when I first purchased it in march, and as Ive just moved to South Dakota Im wondering if its just the cold that has something to do with it or if its something that I really need checked out. Any advice would be great thanks

Start with adjusting the belt, then try replacing it.

In extreme cold situations I have been able to solve otherwise incurable belt slippage in some cars by using synthetic power steering fluid. Never needed to try that in a Subaru.
