Could you tell me if its something to wory about
Expert:  Matt replied 1 year ago.
Hello if the belt is humming / singing then often its just a stiff / new belt bedding in what can help with this is a squirt of silicone lubricant onto the belt while the engine is idling if it persists after 100 mile or so then double check all the pullies are lined up square and true
