Squealing noise when I push the accelerator

when i push on the gas i hear a squealing noise now, is this my surpentine belt? it did it before then i replaced the belt and all was good bout a month ago, but now its doing it again, i think it was a defective belt. do you think taking the belt back and changing it again will fix the problem?

It's most likely the belt tensioned, I had to have my tensioner and A/C pulley replaced twice due to squeeling when the weather was cold or humid outside.

I would say you may need to replace all the belt tensioners. There are two of them. the one for the water pump (11287549588) and the ac tensioner (11287549589). In addition there are two pulleys with bearings also. I just ordered the whole set becuz mine started doing it also. got the whole set cheap from autohaus AZ.com for around $165. Dealer costs for just the two tensioners , $199!
