Subject: 9000 with squeaking belt

Hi, First real cold weather (freezing temperatures) and when starting the car the (serpentine) belt squeaks. Year is 1997 and miles 79k. With the present squeak that goes away reasonably quickly how long have I got before it packs up? Do I get 500-700 miles out of it? Am right in thinking that the tensioner should be replaced as a matter of course if the belt is to be replaced? Regards Charles -- Please remove _removeme_ to reply. Work: Hobby:
