    Yes, it sounds like they spilled oil on the belt which caused it to slip. The oil will not do any permanent damage to the belt so you are OK. It is pretty upsetting that the mechanic tried to lie to you but good that the dealer mechanic was so honest. Keep going to that guy! Good luck!

    So the dealer mechanic is saying that your mechanic spilled oil on the pulley causing it to make noise? I find that hard to believe as oil would cause slippage but quiet slippage. One things for sure. Your mechanic is sloppy and his diagnoses suck with the idler pulley.
