hey guys, I have a squeak/squeal on the front of my 5.0 motor. at first it was just happening under load and now its doing it at idle also. it seems to quiet as the rpms increase. From what i can tell its in the vicinity of the timing chain area. I took off the belt and ran and drove it down the street and it still did it so that eliminates the accessories but what else could it be? need help, bothering the crap out of me lol thanks

Hard to say without actually hearing it, but from what you are saying my first guess would be that the bushings in the distributor shaft are bad and squeeking. try pulling it out and spinning it, see if it squeeks.

what i do is get a can of WD40 or some form of spray lube and hit the areas that you think the noise is coming. when you hit the area, it will get quiet instantly. then you found your problem

I might get better at offering advice if I learn to read the entire post first. :)
