Pulleys making noises on 1996 ford taurus - 1996 Ford Taurus

  • Anonymous Jan 23, 2009

    My 1996 Ford Taurus GL vehicle also makes a loud squeaking noise during idle and louder when driving. I just recently changed the belt hoping that it would fix the problem, it actually did for about 1 week, but it began once again. Since that did not fix it, it could be the pulleys so I will be changing those next. A buddy told me that the same happened on his vehicle and the pulleys were just loose so start there and work your away around it.

You might need to replace the belts. But you could try some spray on belt dressing.

if you support the engine sub frame at the pulley end then unbolt it you can raise the car. by doing this the motor will lower and It should be enough to give you enough clearance to remove the pulley and balancer.

I have a 2002 Ford taurus the air condition works good its very cold but the pully on the AC compressor is loose and making loud screaching noises. Is there a way to tighten the pully?

The pulley has no adjustment, if it is loose you have a bearing problem. If it only makes noise with the a/c on, I would suspect a clutch or compressor problem. Hope this helps, TJ

Noise coming from alternator belt pulley

never spray wd40 on your belts,if it gets on the pulley the alternator or power steering will slip and not work,
listen with an extension bar and pin point noise,if its a bearing in something or maybe just replace the belt for cracks.

Pulleys and driveBelt move freely when engine off, but they dont

sounds to me like the belt is just sliding on the crank pulley. Could be a separated harmonic balancer. Check the big pulley on the bottom.

Change serpentine belt and tension pulley and idle pulley and

could be the alternator, water pump
take the belt and spin all the pulleys and listen for noise and make sure they turn smoothly
another trick is to take a can of wd40 or equivalent and spray the bearings 1 at a time till the noise goes away or quiets down
