replace the belts and pulleys. It's not expensive.

Squeaking or squealing? If it's squeaking then you probably have a bad belt tensioner, not hard or expensive to replace.

If something is squealing then you have a bad bearing somewhere and a much bigger problem.

It's sqeeking, so I replaced the belt and now it's not as bad but still doing it a little bit. sounds like it's coming from the alternator

if it is the alternator pulley could be out of alignment or the alternator is going bad.

If you are refering to an engine bearing, then yes, that would be a huge problem, but I don't think you will get much sound out of that, and it wouldn't have stopped after spraying that stuff on the belts.
