I have a 97 Wrangler SE 4cyl. I've got a chirping sound that is driving me crazy. Can't figure out the cause. I have replaced the belt and idler pullies to no avail. I have even tried using a stethoscope but that doesn't seem to help.

The chirping sound seems to get worse in colder weather and is really bad when the engine is idling. I think I've got some kind of bearing going bad somewhere.... but where? Could it be the alternator or A/C compressor? If so how should I troubleshoot without spending a wad of money by replacing.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Take it to a mechanic and have him look into it. I can't stand the local dealership so I just have them tell me what it is and then I go fix it myself. Costs me like 35 bucks sometimes but its easier than me changin some parts for no reason.
