High pitch squeeling sound at start up and while idiling coming from engine area

I have a 1999 Altima and recently it has developed a squeeling sound at start up and while the engine is idiling that comes and goes. I think it may be related to the fan as when I shut off the engine and the fan remains on, I hear a clicking sound which is unusual. What do you think it could be and is this serious problem ?

The squealing when you start it and are idleing s probably the fan belt or serpentine belt, it may need to be replaced or it could be that it needs some belt dressing sprayed on it. belts will squeal if they are damp from the moisture in the air. as for the fan you most likely have an electric fan in your car and they sometimes run for a few seconds after you shut the vehicle off. It would be a good ideato have someone ceck the fan for you and the belts to be on the safe side.

I assume that you have a 6cyl engine, noise came from both worned secondary timing chain tenssioner shoes, just replace those two and while you have them all apart, also replace main tenssioner and guide, then all noises will go away. Good luck!

Hyundai accent 2005 when starting up the vechile and driving there is a constant ugly sound coming from the front passenger side wheel and when applying the brakes on there is a high pitch squeel


That screeching sound is a warning that your brake pads are worn down to the point where they should be immediately replaced. If you do not replace the pads, you'll score the rotor and incur an additional expense. Remember to replace the brake pads on both sides, i.e., driver and passenger side.

I have a 1985 s10 with the2.8 5 speed trans when i let the cluch pedal up it makes a constant rubbing noise and a high pitched squeel and its all qieut when i shove the pedal down any sugestions?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly,
Your clutch release bearing (throw out bearing) has failed. The transmission has to be unmounted from the engine to change this bearing. (Just like a clutch job!) Being this is a 1985 vehicle you should inspect the clutch plate and the pressure plate for wear. The fingers on the pressure plate should be quite worn if the throw out bearing is doing as you stated in your post. I.e rubbing sound and high pitched squeel. Inspection of the clutch plate consists of making sure the rivets are still not even with the friction pad surfaces. Don't forget to also inspect the engine flywheel for abnormal wear while your working in this area.

Things you might need.... U joints
Transmission rear seal
Clutch Plate
Pressure Plate

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Very hot alternator after just replacing and a high pitch squeel


THE ALTERNATOR CAN GO OUT DUE TO A WEAK OR BAD BATTERY CAUSING IT TO OVERCHARGE TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH DEMAND ON THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM. IT WILL HAVE A HIGH PITCH NOISE WHILE CHARGING AT A HIGH RATE AND FINALLY IT TO WILL GO BAD.

HAVE THE BATTERY TESTED AND CHECK THE CHARGE RATE AT THE ALTERNATOR AND AT THE BATTERY.
