1996 Oldsmobile Bravada squeak under the hood

I have a 1996 Oldsmobile Bravada with about 63,000 miles. For a while there has been an incredibly irritating squeak coming from somewhere under the hood (I think from the front - closest to the fan). The squeak is easily heard when the car is idling, but it gets louder as I accelerate. I've had a pulley replaced in the front by a mechanic, but it ended up being only a very temporary fix. I seem to remember the car squeaking again later that day. I love this SUV, and have not yet found a car that just works and drives as well as it does. I plan to take it off to college with me, but I'd like to know if this squeak indicates something seriously wrong with the vehicle - something that would make the vehicle unsafe, especially for highway travel. I doubt it, but I know relatively little about auto engines so any advice would be appreciated.

Squeaky noises under the hood


IT COULD BE AN IDLER, TENSIONER, OR THE BELT SLIPPING, THESE ARE SEALED YOU CAN'T LUBE THEM. IT SOUNDS LIKE THE BELT IS SLIPPING, BUT IT COULD BE SLIPPING BECAUSE OF A FAULTY IDLER\TENSIONER. REMOVE THE BELT, MAKE SURE ENGINE IS SHUT OFF, AND YOU HAVE THE KEYS, ROTATE ALL THE PULLEY'S AND THE ALTERNATOR PULLEY THEY SHOULD ROTATE FREELY AND RUN TRUE, AND NO ROUGH FEEL TO THEM, OR THE TENSION COULD BE TOO WEEK TO KEEP THE BELT TIGHT.

1996 oldsmobile bravada, Air blows through defroster only. will not switch to vent or floor heat


Open your hood. You should see a ball attached to it, (just in front of the driver side). There are vacuum lines connected to a ball reservoir. Replace them. Mine were turning into dust. I had the same problem and fixing the vacuum lines corrected it. This is for a 1996 Bravada. Blazer's have the same vacuum lines, but the reservoir is not there.

1996 Bravada heater doesn't seem to throw hot


the temp control on your dash operates a hot water valve under hood, it's probably vacuum aparated, like the doors in the heater housing, the valve may be close to heater core,check for vacuum leaks around dash control, totally unrelated leaks can cause problems, and yes a blocked heater core can definitly cause the problem,but I would save that unless it's easy to get at, eliminate other stuff first, luck
