5.4 idler pulley = common problem?
Wondering before I go pulling things apart if the idler pully on the 5.4 is a common failure piece. Clicking/grinding noise seems to be coming from there. A shot of machine oil seemed to help, but could have been coincidence/imagination. Noise disappeared after returning from driving for ~20 minutes (mmmmmm.... pizza!), but returned the next morning.
EDIT: Also wondering of there's a preference in belts: Gates vs. Gatorback
