It a particular period of time when the temperature changes and gets colder. So during the hot summer weather the belt(s) expanded. And as the weather changed and got colder the belts more likely would have the tendency to slip. There's an adjusting screw to adjust the belt tension. Hope you fix it.

I have an 05 and I found that the sound comes from the exhaust cover right inside the engine compartment. That is probably why you think it comes from one of the belts. You can verify this, when the engine is cold, by moving it from side to side. Basically it rattles. This is a factory defect.

Engine starts normal then starts running rough then shuts off, with a squeaking sound


Doesn't sound good Al. Check your engine oil level and make sure it is ok. Could have had a rod bearing seize and fubar the whole engine. Oil puddle under van? Squeaking related but without hearing noise is a tough one. I have heard engines that are on the verge of seizing up to squeak as the bearings seize up and then finally just freeze and seize together. On a lighter note the vans are also prone to having the PCV hose at the back of the intake manifold fall apart and deteriorate. Odd noises have emanated from this sometimes very large vacuum leak that is created. Squeaks, Whistles, etc. If oil was in the hose at time of rupture then oil would have dumped onto the rear exhaust manifold that may have created this smoke from under the hood. You can find more information on this hose at mpvclub. If the engine still cranks over normally but will not start or starts and dies then can rule out the engine damage. The squeaks from this problem are a death call and engine will just not turn over at all.

When i turn on my car i hear squeaking sound


Belts? Mice? Hallucination? ALL DEPENDS ON WHERE THE "SQUEAKING" IS COMING FROM.

Open the hood. If the squeaking is coming from the area of the serpentine belt, it is probably time to replace your belt. Also, check all fluid levels.
If the squeaking is coming from a particular pulley (such as the air conditioning compressor or the power steering hydraulic pump), there may be a problem with whatever the pulley is attached to.
If the squeaking appears to be coming from outside of the car, you are scaring the mice or hallucinating.

97 Buick Park Ave. Non-Ultra. Mileage 200K. Was squeaking at morning cold start for about 5 to 10 min. Replaced Serpentine Belt, belt tensioner, alternator, and PCV Valve. STILL squeaking at cold start....


How's your engine coolant level? If you've got a water pump leaking coolant, your belt will squeak, as the pump will leak the coolant directly onto the belt. You'll see the spray pattern under the hood if it's been going on for a while.

My 1999 Lexus ES300 wouldn't start this morning. There's no sound when trying to turn over...no clicking are anything. When I listen under the hood there's a slight click in the alternator


Hi Susie, Turn on the head lights and get someone to observe them while trying to start. If they dim during trying to start, replace the battery. Regards John

When im sitting at a red light, the check battery light comes on and it will idle really low to the point where it feels like the engine is about to die but it never does, what does this mean? also another...


First question, it sounds to me like your altenator. If you hear a squeak coming from under the hood, it could be your altenator. If you do not hear a squeak, that does not mean it is 100% not your altenator. There is still a good chance that your altenator is not producing a good enough of a charge to your battery.

and your second question sounds like a problem i had with a 1997 pontiac grand am. I personally think that you need a tune up. I would be sure to get platinum spark plugs, and use sythetic oils to keep your car running strong... good luck

THIS IS NORMAL noise for your truck. carbon buildup on pistons causes a cold start knock until warms up. you can run some top engine cleaner thru engine to help. but noise is nothing to affect life of engine
