Having problems with your 1997 Chevrolet Suburban ?
I have a 97 Suburban that has a loud chirping sound coming from the serpentine belt area. I have already replaced the belt, tensioner, and idler pulley. It still isn't fixed. Could the fan clutch be squeaking? There is a bit of rust in that area. Due to the fact that most everything on the top side has been replaced it has pretty much been narrowed down to the fan/water pump area.
If it has A/C it could be the A/C compressor clutch, Try turning on the A/C and see if the noise goes away or changes.
