Well also it could be your a/c compressor

    Then your belts are possibly slipping and probably need to be adjusted or you can replace them and adjust them yourself if you know how to, I really dont think it could be the timing chain because its a timing chain and you will most likely never hear noises from them

Why is my car making whining noise by belts and pully


One of the accessory bearings could be going out
(I.E.-alternator,water pump,etc)If the noise is near an idler or tensioner pulley,it could also have a bad bearing.The best thing to do is remove the serpentine belt or release the tensioner pulley so the belt is loose,then you can spin each accessory pulley by hand and listen for the noise.You'll also feel the pulley dragging while you spin it and it might have a ratchety feel to it(in other words,as you're rotating the pulley you'll feel it spin somewhat freely and then it will feel as if its catching on something) If the belt itself is bad,it usually makes a squealing or chirping sound.If your vehicle has a vbelt drive with multiple belts,check the pullies the same way as described above and make sure the belts are all tight.A loose belt normally causes a squealing noise rather than a whining noise.Check your power steering fluid level too because the pump will whine if it gets low on fluid.

2004 Mitsubishi Outlander started squealing loudly when turning right


If it's the sound I'm thinking of you might just need a new belt or a pully. Typically water pump going out sounds like you have a turbo winding up and steering will growl.

What could be causing a loud squealing noise from front of motor


You have to buy or own a very inexpensive
stethoscope at parts store or online

No other way to listen to things like your
trying to find

You could remove the belt & spin pulleys by hand
& use the stethoscope

You may find that the bottom pulley or harmonic
balancer is worn & is moving the drive belt out of
location causing other pulleys to make noise

My 92 chevy blazer is making a loud squealing noise sounds like my belts but its not that I've replaced the belt and the tensioner what else could it be?


Bearings in Alternator, water pump, power steering pump or even a squeal from Vacuum line, EGR diaphram or similar. Check power steering fluid level.



Now when you replaced the tensioner, did you notice more pulleys that were just "there" and not connected to anything? These are idler pulleys and are helpful in routing the belt. They have bearings too!

Pleae rate my info.

Whining sound and lost acceleration. Sounds like noise coming from pully? Whining increases when pressing the gas.


The lost acceleration is of major concern. Maybe you have lost your water pump. It would work great for a few miles when you start out and then gradually heat up and loose performance. The fluid would eventually boil over? Maybe a bearing on the camshaft is expressing it's discontent and causing extra load for the engine to overcome. Try to determine where the noise is coming from.
The serpentine belt connects the alternator, water pump, power steering, front timing pulley, fan, and front timing pulley. All these components generate a parasitic load on your engine. If the engine has to work harder because of increased load it could be any of these components. I'd definitely check the water pump listening for noise while running. Look for obvious things related to the belt and its' components.
Check the serpentine belt for wear. May indicate pulley misalignment or wear. There exists two idler pulleys that have small bearings that wear out and squealing noises. Check those for wobble with the tension off the belt. They are pretty cheap so replace them if any concern at all.
Power steering pumps cavitate and make a high pitch gear whining sound if fluids are low or gears warn of. Check the fluid and top off to the correct level.
Best wishes,
TF

I have a 1997 dakota 5.2 motor. Had to replace fan blade & clutch. Im putting a new water pump on now. if i still have noise what other things should i check.


Alternator, A/C Compressor, Power-steering pump, smog pump, idler pully(s).

I would pull the belt(s) and check each pulley for wobble or rough spinning.

Hope this helps

2004 gmc envoy. has a 6cyl and a serp belt. the center pully off set to the left (i think its a water pump) has a bad wobble and making a horrible noise. Not over heating and no leaks. should i just change...


If the fan is attached to it than it is the water pump making the noise and it will need to be replaced. If the fan clutch is not attached to it than it is either the idler pulley or the tensioner pulley. The tensioner is on the passenger side (left) of the front of the motor.

2000 Dodge Stratus - loud grinding squeal noise coming from engine - belt area - belt seems to be turning. Loud noise happens on and off upon driving and when I start car and idle. Almost 2 months ago fuel...


if you have climate control the a/c comp. comes on
intermitently if the clutch is going bad thats a suspect also the idler pully bearing could be tired
or the ps pump could be binding.
one way to narrow the field is the next you shut it off
after driving a short time see if any of the is noticably
hotter than the others thats a place to start.
hope this helps good luck
