Thats because there is no tension on it without the belt on. You need to replace pulley at very least and probably the pump all together.

More than likely it's the A/C compressor clutch is going bad. Cut the old serpentine belt off and install a shorter belt to bypass the A/C compressor for now.

The belt is almost assuredly to tight and needs to be loosened just a hair. It is hard sometimes to get the tension just right. Try looseneing it a bit and hopefully that will help. I have had the same problem in the past.

SOURCE: 2005 toyota sienna van power steering very hard

Most likely the problem is the lower steering knuckle. This is the one outside of the firewall, under the vehicle and it hooks up to the power steering assist cylinder. In my opinion the knuckle has to work at an unreasonably steep angle and this compounds the problem. The knuckle (especially in salt areas starts to corrode and becomes hard to turn. Toyota says the water gets into the bearing and they beings to rust the bearing and turning the whell starts to feel stiff. I have this problem and I sprayed liberal amounts of a rust inhibitor that a local place uses to rust proof cars (They sell small spray bottles of it for $5). They are called OIL TECH in Barrie, Ontario and make up their own formula. The formula has addatives that breaks the surface tension on the oil treatment and gets it into the tiny cracks and crevices on your vehicle. I sprayed this all over the knuckle, turned it back and forth a couple of times and continued spraying. I let it sit for an hour and went for a test drive -- problem solved. You could actually see the rust on the exposed parts of the knuckle. I probably will have to do this once every month of two but what the heck. It is a lot cheaper than having to replace the steering shaft ($1000+???) Probably other types of rust proofing or lubricating oils will work. I long for the old days of grease fittings and you never had to replace ball joints and tie rod ends etc.

I seem to have a vacuum leak (high pitch noise)when the car is cold. I thought it was a belt related noise, but everything has been replaced and the noise is still there.


Sometimes the transmission makes that noise when it's low on oil. Check the oil level....that could be the noise.
Hope this helps.

Check your drive belt under the hood. There is one belt that drives everything if it is broken or loose you will loose power steering,alternator, A/C, and possibly the water pump. If the belt is intact but loose the tesioner is probably the problem.

Have you tried running the engine for a minute with the belt removed? If the noise is still present when you do this, then it is not related to the belt or any of the pullies. I have seen "whining" noises coming from the air induction system - namely, vibrations set up by the idle air control and reverberating in the intake. This will not go away with the belt removed.

If the noise does go away with the belt removed, then the problem HAS to be one of the pullies or components that are driven by the belt. Power steering pump a little low on fluid maybe? Or possibly a rough bearing in an idler pulley? Spin each pulley by hand and see if it makes any noise. You should not be able to "hear" them spin. If you get any kind of rattle or roughness when spinning the pulley by hand, then this is most likely your problem-child.

If the noise is coming from belt driven accessory, Sometimes you can use a long steel rod of some kind, one end of rod goes on accessory housing, the other end goes on that bone behind your ear, helps to magnify the sound. Just don't get caught up in belt or pulleys.

Rattle noise coming from belt


this could be a bad pulley or alternator, you will need to remove the belt and spin the pulleys by hand to see which one is making noise, it could also be the ac compressor pulley, start there.

My dodge caravan giving very loud sound like lion roaring from the front. what is the cause of these noises, please tell me. -SK


Often times a pump will make load noise, power steering or such. With the engine running, the van in park with the brake on you may be able to use a small piece of pipe (CAREFULL OF ROTATING PARTS) and place it against the power steering pump or such and listen for the sound. At the very leaset to confirl it is not from inside the engine, you can remove the serpintine belt and run the engine for a brief moment; if no noise then you know its the power steering pump, altenator or.....
I hope this may ahve helped,
