Alternator was replaced, water pump was replaced, p/s pump was replaced, a/c pulley is fine. Asked Rob about the tensioner, he said it's most likely the belt. I put an older belt on that I originally had on the car and it didn't chirp. It had finally started chirping because it was past it's service life. I put this Dayco belt on it and it chirped from the start. The chirping goes away when the engine bay gets hot or if I spray it with water, but comes back when it dries out.
