Question Pathfinder Belts Squeal

I have a 2001 Pathfinder and have had problems with squealing belts since the first replacement. I have tried every kind NAPA has and am now back to NISSAN belts. I have to tighten them to the point that there is almost no deflection to get rid of the squeals.

Has anyone had the same problem and found a set of belts that grip tight and don't slip?

Thanks

I had a similar problem but the Nissan belt fixed mine. Parasitic drag due to an overloaded alternator, seized idler pulley, or a failing water pump can cause this. Good Luck.

I have a 95 Pathfinder and they squealed pretty good for a week. I changed them in the early spring of this year and didn't put too many KM's on them. So, bought a can of Permatex belt dressing and applied it and now the noise is gone.
