Question about 2000 Hyundai Accent

Loud Screeching sound When Turning only on occassion.

So my car runs fine otherwise, but on occassion as I make a turn (typically when the car is cold or wet) I hear a loud screeching sound coming from... somewhere.  Sounds like near the tires but there is no actual effect.  
Mechanic has no clue because he "can't replicate the problem."

Super helpful I know, any ideas?

It sounds like the power steering belt is loose. If it has a tensioner pulley the spring in it might be loosing it's tensile strength. While you are looking at the belt pay attention to the side that is against the pulley to see if it has alot of cracks. If it has I think 10 cracks per inch that is too much and needs to be replaced.

if it is sort of a loud metallic like screeching sound as you crank, it is typically a sign that your starter motor is about to go.

My 2006 VW Jetta is making loud, screaming/screeching, sound from the passenger side-front, behind the the dash/glove box, between the engine and wheel.


I would like to think it is the electric fan behind the radiator that is screeching. When you stop the car, everything should stop, but that fan. That fan is supposed to cool the radiator, even after the engine is off and the car stops. It would not be so bad, because it does not run as much, in cold weather, but in hot weather, it should start sooner and run longer.
I needs to be replaced.
Be blessed.

We replaced the fan belt in a 1994 Toyota 4Runner and there was still a loud screeching noise and it doesn't seem like the top pulley is turning.


sounds like the pulley bearing is bad and has failed -- remove the belt and try and turn the pulley by hand. if it does not turn ' freely ' and smooth, then replace the pulley.

Loud rattling-screeching sound thought was belt but belt looks fine- not constant- worse when idling or just turning on. 2004 zx3 hatchback.


One of the pulleys is not turning. Could be AC, alternator, or one of the idler pulleys.Take a careful look with a good light. My bet is the idler pulley.
