chirping noise

I recently started hearing a chirping from what I think is the alternator. Replaced all the belts 3 months ago, everything was nice and fine...just outta the blue I started hearing this chirping. Seems to quiet when I start moving but is still there at a constant rpm. I have a 94 p/u 4x4 22re engine. Any suggestions???

yes, probably the alternator bearing going out. didn't make noise before because the old belt was worn and didn't put as much tension on the bearings. You did use the official tool to set the belt tension didn't you? I'm kidding, noone does but the belt being too tight could cause the bearing to go bad or too loose to skip if there's an extra smooth/slippery patch.

sounds good..well not good...but reassuring that it's the alt i guess. looks like it might be time to change the alternator for me then. thanks for the reply

well, make sure before tearing stuff apart. use a mechanics stethoscope to check the alt, the water pump, and (if you have them) PS and AC pulleys. really it could be any of them, I just don't usually think of the others right away since I have a base model with only the alt and wp.
