The chirp is getting more frequent. It's comeing from driver forward some where. Checked for heat in front bearing, warm but can touch without pain so I don't think it's that. Tilted horn different directions thinking air flow causeing chirp, it's not that.

Need help quick!!

Thanks,
Ron

Mileage doesn't matter if the belt is not aligned correctly or tension is off.

Thanks for the replys.
Turned out it was bad gas. Thought it smelled like varnish last night when I filled on before shutting down for the day. Don't know why it did what it did but as soon as we put fresh 92 octane gas in her she run perfect again. I think it had something to do with the emissions and the air injected into the exhaust. Sounded like a check valve would stick open for split second causeing a chirp/whistle sound. Guessing of course but glad it's working and we can continue on our trip.
