Hello all,

Today I noticed that if my car goes thru a puddle, I get a quick squeal. I try to go thru them slow (it was storming earlier), and maybe a few seconds later I'll get the squeal, sometimes I seem to stop it when I put on the brake. sounds like it comes from the right side.

anything to be concerned about? I only have a serpentine belt right?

I had the same issue when I first got my taurus. It got bad enough that on the highway, the alternator stopped charging and I lost my powersteering. So I made a splash shield to cover the crank pulley which is easily splashed. Haven't had a problem since.
