Serpentine belt squealing

I got this car about 2 years ago and the belt has always squealed. We bought the car used, but it still makes a really loud noise even after we bought a new belt and replaced it. Tried checking the pulleys and tension points to see if any were loose or misaligned, but they were all fine.

WHAT IS THE LIKELY CAUSED OF A LOUD SQUEALING NOISE COMING FROM THE ALTERNATOR SERPENTINE DRIVE BELT SYSTEM ? IS IT THE ALTERNATOR OR SERPENTINE BELT?


serpentine belt is getting old and hard and the cold weather was causing it to slip
check belt condition ( small cracks across the grooves = scrap and get a new one) and check tension

Makes squealing noise


The squeal would be the alternator slipping on the belt. I would think either the newly installed belt is not the correct length, or the belt tensioner is no longer doing its job properly.

When car is running idle or at slow speeds it makes a squeaking sound


There are several heat shields that can squeak or you could just need a new serpentine belt. Unfortunately, a lot of things can cause a 'squeak' but without knowing what area it comes from, if it changes with engine speed, or vehicle speed, I can't give you any pinpoint information.

Makes a loud squealing noise when i start it?


CHECK THE ALTERNATOR BELT IS TIGHT AND SERVICEABLE . THE EXTRA LOAD ON THE ALTERNATOR WHEN YOU START THE CAR IS CAUSING THE BELT TO SLIP.

2002 Porsche Boxster - had squealing coming from


Mine did that off and on for a month with no other problems then it started making a loud suction noise and the check engine light came on. I took it to the dealer and they said the "oil separator" needed to be replaced.
After the repair I never heard the squealing again.

98 Ford Taurus - Squeal near serpentine belt


Never use WD40 in a rubber belt.  Replace belt with ford belt and new tensioner.   And don't put anything on the belt..ever!.
