Did you check your ac pulley before installing the belt? check for some play on your ac pulley. your ac pulley bearing must have been worn out and needs replacement.

I have a 1996 jeep grand Cherokee. It runs fine except for the squealing belt! Just replaced the water pump and the belt and it's now worse than it was before! Any ideas? I checked the auto tensioner...


You have an out of alignment belt run across the pulleys of the engine, this causes the belt to make noise as it rubs on the edge. Many times this is causes by the crankshaft vibration damper coming part and the pulley walking outward.

How do I tighten serpentine belt and to what spec?


Your 1996 cherokee has a self adjusting tensioner. If it's bad or if the belt is worn, it might make a squealing noise. You cannnot adjust it. You can only replace the auto tensioner when it gets old and weak.

My 1999 jeep cherokee belt squeals very loud when giving it gas and chirps a little when idleing


If you get the squealing noise even when car is not running, and if noise get louder when you push the accelerator pedal, then it is the serpentine belt.

You may need to put the belt in tension, or to replace it.

There is a squeal sound (high pitch) coming out of


The seal on the AC compressor has probably failed and allowed all the refrigerant and lubricant to be lost. This allows the bearing to run dry and now it is failing and making noise.

1. You could have the AC repaired, the compressor repaired or replaced and the system refilled.

2. You could have a mechanic disconnect the system and possibly remove the compressor (only if this model does not use a belt that relies on the compressor being in place).

3. It is probably way too late to try to refill the AC system with R134a refrigerant as it would just run out past the failed seals.

If anyone has an AC unit that just recently stopped making cold air they should attempt to recharge the unit (if it uses R134a - check your manual or underhood stickers). I just did and saved my compressor and AC unit from further damage.

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.
