You may have a worn out belt, or faulty tensioner. Inspect the belt for cracks on the ribbed side of the belt, and if it looks cracked, or damaged in any way, it needs replacing. If your tensioner is bad, you will be able to pull slack on the belt simply by pulling up on it by hand. Unless one of your drive pullies are making noise, like an a/c clutch pulley, but it would come and go as you run your defrost.
Good luck

Squeeky fan belt noise after driving a little


It sounds as if the belt is dry. Belts dry out after a certain amount of time and then start to make chirping noises. If the belt is not badly cracked, you can try using a belt lubricant spray. These sprays usually only last for a short period of time, though.

When do i replace the timing belt on my seat inca van 2004


Those belts are usually supposed to be changed every 60,000 miles. Behind the timing belt cover is your water pump. They can make noise when going out, but usually a timing belt makes no noise, just breaks. If you ever have to change the water pump, it is always suggested to change the timing belt as well. VS. If your timing belt gets stretched, it will make a bit of a noise, but your car will start running poorly at the same time. Hope I was helpful

Belt noise when first starting engine


Don't use a "belt dressing"...

There may be oil or other substance on the pulleys.
Remove belt and clean all pulleys .. inspect belt for contamination from those pulleys.

That should do it!

97 Lexus Es300 noise under the hood by alternator


mcdevito75 here, If you have 1 continuous belt on the engine (serpentine) then the belt could be worn or the tension pully holding the belt tight could be going bad. No noise in Neautral or Park as increased engine speed in these gears over rides the worn part and thus no noise. On a cold engine examine the belt, look for frays / wear from where the belt rides the pullys. If the belt is 2 years old, Change it.

Accleration problems 1998 ford f150 v6


probably the belt making noise , very common .

WHen a belt gets old it gets dry and cracks start to appear , the non-ribbed side of the belt may get dry & glazed also make noise . common problema are also tensioners that make the belt get out of line with the rest of the pulleys , look carefully because just a little miss-alignment can cause a belt to slip on the smooth side of pulleys and make noise . Misting water onto the belt may also help you determine what is making noise.

Good Luck and Watch your Fingers !!!!

Loud squealing noise


The noise is most likely the serpentine belt. Check it's condition and that of the belt tensioner. It sounds like the belt is slipping, causing the squealing noise u describe. As the belt warms up, it's getting a better 'grip' and the noise stops. Turning on the heat also turns on the a/c in newer cars, this added drag on the belt (one more component to turn, the a/c compressor) would explain why it happens when u turn on the heat. Is the belt original? If yes, it's time to change it, and check the belt tensioner to make sure it's doing it's job of keeping the belt snug on all the pulleys. Let me know how u make out.
