Crankshaft Pulley 2001 Chevy Malibu coming out. Through Belt how do I get it back aligned?


Hi Crystal,
You will need to know if the crank shaft pulley is coming apart or missing the lock down nut. The ring on the outer edge of the pulley is held in place by molded rubber, I would think this will be your problem.

My belt making noise, if i spray little wd-40 on the belt, it goes away, but in few minites comes back.???????//


Yes, any belt dressing only lasts for a little while. You need to resolve the issue(s). First, consider replacing the belt, eventually they get shiny and make squeaks. Look carefully for pulley alignment, if off jsut slightly, the belt does not lay correctly and causes noise. Sometimes you can rough up the offending pulley and keep the noise away for a longer while, use coarse sandpaper.

When I start car it makes a loud sqeaking noise what is that?


either the belt is worn and causing this or one of the pulleys on the motor may be causing this if the belt is good remove the belt and test the diff pulleys by spining them with your hand wiggling each one and see if they are loose. hope this helps

Sqeaking from the accessory belt drive. could be a bearing in one of the pulleys, the pump, the alt or the belt tension has weakened. It occurs off and on, usually just off idle but sometimes at idle. Is...


common cause is the belt gets worn and stretched, yes the tensioner is suppose to keep its tension but also the tensioner gets weak and all it takes is a couple slips of the belt to harden and you will get a squeal. Spray WD 40 on tensioner, idler pulleys, alternator behind pulley, not on belt or where belt rides on pulleys but at all bearing locations. Did squeal stop? If not replace belt. Usually a chevy water pump will leak, or grind not sqeak unless there is rusty non lubricated so called coolant in it which 1974 maybe but 2007 na im sure you didn't neglect this baby. You can also inspect the belt carefully, possibly buy a can of belt dressing and spray belt but do make sure you use a ratchet and check your belt tensioner for smooth non sticky tension pressure.

Recurring Front end squeak in 97 Acura CL


lol, well...you can either go the route of the previous persons solution or you can- if you are positive the sqeak is coming from the ball joints-spray some WD-40 on it. I wouldnt suggest replacing it again, since you just did it and chances are there is nothing wrong with the integrity of the part, your just getting an annoying byproduct lol. Like when belts sqeak(which p's me off but i just turn my radio up lol).

I have a 1999 Pontiac grand AM 4dr. se. when i turn my car on there is a high pitched squeeking sound coming from someplace in the front of the car(i dont know where).i was thinking maybe the distributor...


If you have a can of WD-40 around the house, spray the belt and see if the squeak goes away. If not, there may be an idler or tensioner pulley bearing getting bad. Let me know the results of the WD-40 and we will go from there.
