If it's a stand-alone pulley, it would have bearings which may be worn and about to fail. If it's a pulley on a component, like a power steering pump pulley, the component may need troubleshooting.

SOURCE: cold start fan belt squeak... slight misalignment

its possible that a pulley replacement is needed but i would first reccomend buying a lubricating spray from your local hardware store and applying it to your squeeling belt if the noise stops then you may just need to tighten or replace the belt. in addition an overtightend belt can cause undesired stress on the pulleys.

SOURCE: I need to know where

The mark is inside on the block at about the 10:30 -11:00 o'clock position. It looks like a dash mark. It is between the crankshaft and the balance shaft side. Hope this helps.

Squeaking fan belt


fan belts squeak for several reasons 1 incorrect belt for pulley.2 belt running on the botton of the pulley and worn pulleys. To check measure across the top part of the pulley and the widest part (back) of the belt should be the same if not marginally bigger. V belts work best at t5he top of the pulley.If you can see that the pulley is polished at the bottom the belt is slipping and not driving Check if the pulley sides where the belt runs is not stepped from wear. Recheck the tension as new belts stretch slightly. If you have a multi groove pulley check the tension setting. As a last resort CRC make a product that is used to stop belt but it is best to fix the real fault first

I'm trying to replace the drive belt in my 2008 Kia Optima and am having some major issues. Which outside pulley is the tension pulley, and do I need a special wrench to change out the belt?


the tensioner pulley is the only pulley that isnt attached to any type of fixture it is a pulley that sits alone, and all you need is a socket wrench to loosen it, loosen it until you can move the belt and take off, remeber what order the belt goes on to replace it, draw a diagram if you have to

When car is running there is a very loud squealing sound that seems to be caused by the belts but they have been checked. Any suggestions would be great. It is a 2003 Kia Optima. And I can not find a...


check belts and pulleys, for wear, a shiny pulley is a sign of wear... see how the belt rides in the pulley it should not be low in the groove on a V belt... if it rides low in a pulley then only the very top sides of the belt are shouldering the load making it easy for slippage...

Drive Belts Squeaking


First off, how many miles do you have on this engine?Since you changed the belt and still have the noise,you have one of your pulleys making this noise.Usually it's the ideler tensioner pully.Take the belts off.Turn the pulleys by hand including the alternator pulley.if you hear the slightest faint noise there's your problem.repalce the part or the pulley. A lot of times the alternator pulley does this,the front bearing or the rear bearing as well will make these nasty squeals.Find an auto electric shop that rebuilds alternators and have them replace the bearing for you,while your at it service your unit,it will save you in the long run.
