The timming belt must be a little loose so the thing you have to do is to touch the belt when car is on off ignishion and ceck if it is loose.if it is you must make it not to be.is preaty easy when you take a look and think about it for a sec.i have a problem whith my targa top....it makes a sound when i hit a hole or something on the road and cant figure why and what i have to fix or replace.

How do i replace the AC? and what do i have to have to replace it?


If your car has an adjustment for the belt, I would suggest you tension the belt a little more first. A slack or loose belt would also cause that problem

Chirpping in the engine


might be a bearing in your altenator or water pump, is it high pitched? does it go away if you rev the engine? if it goes away it might be the belt and u could try some belt dressing, its a spray u put on the belt that stops it from squeking

2004 ford taurus chirping noise when engine revs


Hello, There are several things which can do this. First, cut off the A/C and then rev the engine as before. If the chirping goes away, the noise was either the A/C clutch or the Serpetine belt slipping with the load. For the A/C clutch, you can try a little rust removal between the drive plate and the pulley with the engine OFF. You can use sandpaper and try to knock off the rust. Then put a little oil on to condition the metal. Then try it with the A/C on.

If the chirp is still there, you have to check bearings on the Pulley tensioner, Alternator, Water pump, and Power steering. It is possible for the Pulley tensioner to have a weak spring or you may have a stretched Serpetine belt. This condition would cause the belt to skip under a load. If the belt is checked with small cracks, just replace the belt. Take off the tensioner and compare the spring tension and wobble in the pulley to a new unit at the Autoparts store.

If still no success, the chirp could be a water pump bearing. The old way off using a piece of wood on the housing of a part while the engine is running is dangerous, but effective. I believe you should have already found your problem before this measure is needed. Dry Serpetine belts make quite a lot of noise and is probably your problem.

I hope my Solution is very helpful to you.

My 1997 Malibu is holding up very well. Recently, I have noticed a slight chirping noise whenever I idle (especially after starting the car) and when I accelerate to about 45 or 50. It is NOT a whine...


Remove the serpentine belt notating the direction of travel. Start the vehicle long enough to confirm the chirp is either still present or it has stopped.

If the chirp stops manually spin all the pulley by hand to see if you can duplicate the sound. If nbothing else is making noise and the belt is in good shape put the belt back so that it travels in the opposite direction. If the noise persists replace the belt. If the noise goes away see how long it lasts. I have had many that have not returned after rotating the belt.

One other thing you can try is putting a small dab of di-electric grease on the belt, with the engine off of course. Spread the dab around a little with a finger, again with the engine off. Start the vehicle, give it a couple of seconds to let the grease work around the belt. If the noise goes away replace the belt.

Chirping when @3500 to 4000 rpms, 2000 taurus


3500 rpms is about 80 mph. Is this noise in 1st, 2nd & 3rd gear? Is check engine light on?
Chirping could be accessory belt noise. Spray them one at a time with belt dresing to see if it goes away and which belt is doing it.

There's a chirping birdlime noise when the car is


Sounds like your serpentine belt is dried out.Replace your belt make sure belt tensioner is ok,or you can make sure that it is your belt by using a old candle or belt dressing that you can purchase from your local parts store.While engine is running VERY carefully touch the candle to the ribbed side of the belt and let the wax rub off onto the belt the squeak or chirp should change or go away.Or just spray the belt dressing on per the directions on the can.

The engine is making a chirping noise and my husband thinks it might be something with alternator, could that be it?


Have your serpentine belt and tensioner checked the noise you are hearing is 95% of the time just a dry serp. belt. f you are very careful with the engine running you can us a thin wax cadle or belt dressing spray(available at a parts store) to coat the ribbed side of the belt to see if noise changes or goes away.

Chirping noise at 2000 rpm


An easy way to get a good idea of where the noise is coming from is to use a short peice of wood like a broom handle , hold it to your ear and touch different places around the where the noise seems to come from. If it is in the belt area spray brake clean in small bursts at each pulley noting when the squek quiets or goes away.
