Question about 1988 Nissan Pathfinder

Steady squeaking noise after taking foot off accelerator

I have a 1988 Pathfinder that makes a squeak, squeak, squeak noise after I accelerate and let my foot off the gas pedal. I'm not stepping on the brake either, just freewheeling. Sounds like the squeak comes with each rotation of the tires, but I'm not sure which side it is.

    I haven't tried jolting the brakes, but I will. I'll check the pads.



    Thanks for the advice

Sounds like you have a pad rubbing on a disk/rotor, if you jolt the brakes does the noise go away? if so it's probably a pad loose

You should have your belts checked for proper tension. If they're squeaking when the engine is at a low RPM then they are most likely loose and need to be tightened. However, that squeak may also be an indication that one of the tensioners in the belt's line may be wearing down. If that is the case the tensioner will need to be replaced since the bearing inside is worn down beyond the point where lubrication would be useful.

I'm guessing either a belt getting worn, or a little rust build up on brake rotors, or warning tabs on brakes rubbing on rotors. Have someone walk along both sides, of the vehicle while you drive slow down the street, or laneway, they should be able to pinpoint it better for you that way.
