Squeaky fan belt

Hi , When i first start my car up and drive it, its making a squeaking sound. My car is a Peugeot 307. Its sounds as though its the fan belt. Do you think this could be the case and if so what is the procedure to fix it?. Thank you for your help.

Hi, the problem is probably caused by the crankshaft pulley! Have it replaced because it will certainly break down within a short period and can cause severe damge to your car.

It is definitely the fan belt.

inspect it if it is still usable and just need tightening. if not then it could be replaced.

feel the tension on each belt and adjust it to the right tension.

tnx for using fixya,

    hello julie,

    it would be very hard for a woman to tighten a belt but i could guide you.
    all you have to look is a tension er , loosen the nuts that is holding it and increase the tension of the belt by turning the bolt to move the pulley away from the center. but if the pulley is all the way to the back and the belt is still loose, then its time to replace the belt.

    tnx again,
    drcool

2006 Nissan Sentra. Belts squeaks and stop seeking when you step on brakes.


If I understand this, your fan and other belts driving components in the engine bay stop squeaking when stepping on the brake? Your belts may need some adjustment to tighten. But it may be a vacuum hose leaking around the power brake chamber, or it is leaking, and sounds like the squeeking you describe. I would temporarily confirm the belt squeak by using a "Belt dressing spray" from your auto parts store, to see if it really is the belt or a possible vacuum leak. My belts squeak sometimes after the first start of the day in cold weather since the alternator is working very hard to recharge the battery after the start. It will be quieter when the engine is slowed down as in your braking scenario.

What causes a squeaky sound from the engine of an 2000 Isuzu rodeo when engine is running?


it could be one of the belts. if you put a little wax or brake fluid on the belt in a couple of places and the squeak goes away then you either have a loose belt/s or the belts/s need replacing. if no change it could be the timing belt making the noise.

When im taking off slowly ther is squeak from front end sounds like squeaky fan belt but is coming from underneath cud it b clutch its ok when driving just there when i take off or driving slow . please...


it could be the clutch throw out bearing making the noise however it still could be a belt.check the condition of the belt and tightness of the belt(s) as well as the tensioner first as this is the cheapest to do if its the problem.the reason the noise goes away while driving is because the load(torque) on the component is less than when your taking off from a stop or driving slow.

2006 Toyota Corolla, every morning there is squeaky sound when I start the car. Later, it goes away. It is for the past six months. Is it serpentine belt causing this sound, if so how I can loose...


The problem is the rear motor mount is filled with hydraulic fluid that leaks onto the accessory drive belt. The motor mounts fail prematurely and the fluid makes the belt squeak. Toyota dealership I took my 2006 Corolla to replaced the motor mount and belt free of charge.

You may be running low on power steering fluid or your power steering belt is loose or worn.
