    Have you checked to see if the brake backing plates are touching the brake rotor??

    it seems to be a problem with the abs brakes. it doesn't happen when I'm driving in town with frequent stops.

Or if the brakes are shimmed, a shim got bent during the brake replacement. i can't see why a bearing would be going in a fairly new car without some really hard driving, same for the axle(s)/ cv joints.

I have a loud squealing noise upon starting the car. the squealing normally lasts about 30-45 seconds. sometimes the noise will appear aftrer pulling off from a stopped position, as well. all belts


Try to tighten the belts a little firm.Sounds like when engine idling no squelling only when about to take off .Some times belts may seem ok on the outside but if you look on inner side you tend to see cracks in the belts .

05 neon making squealing noise while driving. the noise stops when brakes are pushed


inferior pads or improperly installed. it could be that they just need to conform to the disc and the sound will go away, but you should find out that everything else is ok. if you got one of those brake jobs with a lifetime warranty, then its definitely because of the pad material.

1998 Ford F150 5.4 liter V8 squealing problem. Ok, I have this loud squeal that sounds like a pulley or belt. It is getting worse by the week. At first, I would spray some WD40 on the pulleys and it would...


I don't think its the CPS, but I do know that WD40 will make a squealing belt even worse. If you havnt replaced the belt yet, I would do that.

Let us know if that helps.

'96 Toyota 4-Runner makes a loud squealing noise and brake light


Sounds like one of the auxillary belts slipping it may just need tightening up. I think the 4-Runner has two belts one large and one for the steering pump

Just replaced belt and alternator. Engine squeals very loud when started. What should I check next? belt tension seems good.


Sounds like the new alternator was run without first fully charging the battery (12.3 - 12.8 volts)
This will destroy an alternator every time -- the classic symptom is a squealing belt.

Loud squealing sound in my engine


Try removing the belt and turning each pulley by hand. If everything is smooth and free, with the belt still off, drive down the block once and see if the noise is there (this will eliminate all rotating accessories on the front). If you hear the noise, then there is a problem deeper inside. Oil pressure is good? Dont' forget when doing this, you will have no power steering, so be careful.
