The singing is the idler pulley. When the bearing's go bad in those they scream like a russian hooker. Another item you can test with your breaker bar and ear. Lol
Funny/Embarrassing thing I recently purchased a dodge and was doing this, forgot that it's a hydraulic operated fan ( or at least operates off pressure of the water pump heat distribution ) and whacked the fan with the crowbar! Scared the living piss out of me, always remember to check how far the fan comes out of the shroud!!
