Question about 2008 Kia Rio

How do i tighten my power steering belt in a 2008 kia rio5

Kia replaced all my belts a few months back, but my power steering belt squeals when I turn the steering wheel, mainly when it is cold or wet outside, and since we are in the end of october... that is a lot. I know the belt needs to be tightened, and I am pretty sure I can do it myself, but I just need to know how. I really do not want to take it in to get it done, especially by Kia

Then you don't take anything off. There will be a spring loaded idler that tensions the serpentine belt. Take a socket or long 12 point wrench and attach to the center bolt of the tensioner, then rotate the idler wheel away from the belt, take the belt off. Slowly release the spring tension of the idler.
The 2nd belt should be set up the same way.

SOURCE: I need the timing belt replaced on 2000 kia

That depends on if you are replacing it before or after it stops working. The engine is an interference engine and if the timing belt goes out, it could damage the head and cost you around $1500. before it goes out you should be able to get it done for about $500 plus parts.
P.S. get the water pump replaced at the same time for a little extra as long as the front of the engine is being taken apart.

I just replaced power steering pressure hose on a 2002 Hyundai Sonata GLS 6 cylinder. Now its s squeals really bad when I turn the steering wheel and the belts are squealing like mad too what do I need to...


Looks like you need a new belt. Inspect the belt for any sign of damage like cracks etc. If belt appears fine then just tighten it. Add few drops of brake oil on pulley (surface which comes in contact with belt) to stop minor squeals if left after tightening the belt.

Power steering problem


Sounds like the pump pressure valve is not working when cold and should be replaced.> It is inside the pump where the pressure line connects to the pump.

1997 dodge avenger 2.0, belt squealing


Hi

The Power Steering Belt tension requires adjustment, to give it more tension, to cure the slipping, resulting in the squealing, or perhaps renewal, due to cracking or excessive wear.

Your Power steering Belt, belt is your primary problem.

Good Luck !

A FixYa Would Be Nice, Thank´s......John.

Clicking/Squealing When Turning Wheel


Could be two problems. First the power steering; Check the tension of the drive belt for the power steering and the condition of the belt. If that appears to be OK, check the level of the fluid and its condition or apperance compared to new fluid that is recomended by the manufacturer. If that appears OK, it could possibly be the power steering pump it self. Second the clicking; It is most likely a bad CV (constant velocity) axle. Good Luck.

'88 Volvo 740GLE won't get past 30 mph


Horrible squeal. If my 740 made a horrible squeal I would be upset also. These ideas - timing belt has somehow slipped out of time. Easy check. One of the other belts are slowing the engine any of them can squeal: The alternator belt The power steering belt The fan belt. Does the noise occur only when driving? Does the engine sound normal when revving in neutral? Does turning on the lights or a/c affect the noise? Does the power steering work when car is standing? Is the squeal heard when turning the wheels. A logical diagnosis will identify and eliminate these easy to fix problems.
