i had that problem with my 4runner for 2 years ... well after thinking there was something with the belts and then after making sure they were all tight we thought the timing chain (dont know why but we did) but all we had to do to fix it ( out nighbor showed us) was take a bar of soap and let it rub against the belts and it stoped, he said it was rust on the pullys that cause that and the soap helps the belt go by easier. that or a pully is bad.

Yup.

Autoparts store also sell belt dressing. It comes in a spray can.

Accessory belt. Theres 2 of them.

Crank pulley ---> alternator ---> a/c compressor (if you have ac).

Crank pulley ---> power steering pump.
