This is the second belt I had to install on my 2001 Dodge Ram. The first one only lasted about 6 months because my power steering gear box and water pump went at the same time and tore the belt up. No fault of the belt....just the Dodge! The original replacement fit well with no squeak and I do not think it contributed to the water pump and steering malfunction. Those parts just wore out.

Serpentine Belts are one of the best things ever invented. The old days with v-belts were just cumbersome when compared with this easy solution. In either case having any kind of squealing or chirping noise is never nice.

This is the reason for my disliking of this belt. I installed it after a water pump job, never thinking to research the drive belt. I just thought that they were mostly the same if you got a premium belt. In the case of this Dayco belt, I was wrong. Dayco makes some good products, but this one was disappointing.

I changed out the idler and also tensioner pulley and still had a problem. I then installed a Gates belt and no noise. Wondering what the differences were I came across not only the Gates 4070975 belt but also the Gatorback by Goodyear.

I will see how the Gates belt works, but if I should have any more noises, I will be using the Gatorback 4070975 which seems to get top ratings.

    Comments about CARQUEST by Dayco Poly Rib Belt:

    I have religiously used Gates belts on my Dodge. This weekend I was chasing a squeak. I replaced the idle pulley and figured I would replace the belt too. I've never used Dayco belts, but figured what the heck. Just for verification I did install the old belt and run the truck after I replaced the pulley, there was a chirp. I installed the Dayco belt, the chirp went away, great! I drove the truck for a few days and then it started making an insane amount of noise from the pulleys. After doing some troubleshooting, I reinstalled the old Gates belt. The noise went away. This new belt was installed on a Saturday, started making the noise on Monday afternoon after a weekend of driving. I'll be returning it and getting a new Gates belt again.

          This is the second belt from Dayco that I've installed on my truck. First replacement belt had a little over 100K before it went due to my water pump going.
