OK, details...
1990 Buick Century 3.3 V6, bought new 05/05/90. This happened when it was about 3 years old, so ~1993. Mileage back then would have been ~ 18,000. Trusted mechanic suggested spray silicone to quiet squealing belt. Tried it and it worked. Did it several times over a period of about 6 months or so. Serpentine belt broke most of the way across and beat the underhood mat up. Couldn't not fix the wifes car halfway, so the new pad.

In 1993, not many ways to research a topic like this. Live and learn. Times are a bit different now. I can look to others, like yourself, who are apparently smarter than I am for their life lessons.
