Before you order anything drop the belts and spin/feel the pulleys manually.

I was more saying that becuase he wasn't the type to run the car hard ever. it was in immaculate condition when I bought it so I meant it never needed anything replaced

I just got done replacing pulleys, belts, tensioners, and mounting hardware. car purrs like a happy kitten now. I think the sound originated from my idler pulley going because it ended up failing just before I changed everything. but all the other pulleys were done too. happy I did it. super easy to do yourself too. hope this helps anyone interested. thanks to everyone that chimed in!
