Default Changing Anti Freeze

I can hear a squeal on Idle and when I start to accelerate . I was thinking it is probably the water pump , It has 50,000 on it. Should I put in some water pump lube with the anti Freeze.

My bet would be on a belt, and not water pump.
Buy some "belt dressing" and put it in on belts - if squeal goes away, then you need new belts.

check out a couple of you tube videos about squealing belts. I don't think belt dressing is recomended for serpentine belts, maybe because both sides of the belt is on the pullys. also not fun to clean off after it doe,s not work and your installing the new belt.
