Hello, my beloved 2006 RSX has started making a chirping sound and evolves to a screech as I accelerate the engine.
I have changed the belt(cracked ) and a new belt tensioner.
I just removed the belt and checked to see that all the pulleys were spinning fine without emanating any unusual sounds.
I accidentally touched the NEW belt tensioner and found it to be very hot, especially around the spring housing.
I am thinking that maybe I overtightened the three bolts securing the tensioner the engine, in particular, the center bolt.
Any advice would be gratefully appreciated.
Thank You for your time!
