I might not have enough information but the squeal is most likely a worn bearing. Try to isolate it with a "mechanic's stethescope" to locate the source. A pin point shot of WD-40 at the whining bearing (NO NOT put it on good bearings should TEMPORARILY quiet it IF it is a bearing. DO NOT overspray, just at the center of the pulleys...the lubricant should get pulled into bearing to confirm that the pump (power steering would be my guess) needs replacing.

Look at the pulley coming off the crank shaft. If the thrust bearing is going bad or is bad you will have excessive play in the crankshaft that causes excessive deflection of the belt. If it's this your looking at an engine rebuild. Just went through this on my dads jeep.

SOURCE: My 2005 grand am is squealing badly, replaced idle pull didn't work, could crank pulley or water pump pulley be causing it

There is a spay can available at auto parts store under the name "belt dressing". Try to spray it on the belt and see what happens. It may be caused by misalignment of the belt and/or excessive slip, which would be calling to check belt tension. It could be a problem with alternator as well. Good luck finding the culprit.

2001 escape squealing noise when engine is under presure

Use a mechanic's stethoscope to locate the culprit sqeal. Have a technician rev the engine, in order to produce the squeal. Lay the stethoscope tip utop the water pump, nearest the armature. Locate squeal in this fashion against the idler pulley(if applicable), the alternator, the air conditioner compressor, power steering pump (if applicable), the cam shafts (if applicable), and finally the crank. This will help isolate the location of the squeal.7_20_2012_9_07_34_pm.jpg

My belt is squealing really bad on my 96 Ford Probe SE 2.0 liter, i replaced the power steering pump, the power steering belt and it is still squealing. Is it a pulley?

Often these vehicles have a spring loaded tensioner, which you would have released to replace the belt. When the spring in the tensioner gets weak, causes a squeak.

I have a 1996 jeep grand Cherokee. The belt does not stay line up on the pulleys. Make a squeling noise. I believe it might be some bearing. I do I diagnose? What causes that

You will need to remove the belt and check each pulley and idlerfor play/ slop
My best answer is you will find an idler pulley that is shot

I get a loud squeal from the fan area only when

It could be a pulley. Best way to tell is to remove the belt and turn each pulley one at a time and see if you can either feel one not turning freely or try and duplicate the squeal. Keep in mind there is no load on the pulley without the belt on it so it might not be as pronouce as it would be with the belt on.

Only thing to know really is when you're retensioning the new belt is adjust the tensioner so you have about an inch of movement on the longest run between pulleys. Any tighter and you put too much strain on the bearings any looser it will squeal. If it does squeal just tension it a little more til it stops. Might need tensioning again after a few miles because it will stretch a bit.

When I crank my van it makes a squealing sound and it shuts off. The engine light is on.

Sounds like you may have a pulley that has locked up on you. Have someone crank the engine while you carefully observe the pulleys and belts.
