SOURCE: Loud squealing sound in my engine

Try removing the belt and turning each pulley by hand. If everything is smooth and free, with the belt still off, drive down the block once and see if the noise is there (this will eliminate all rotating accessories on the front). If you hear the noise, then there is a problem deeper inside. Oil pressure is good? Dont' forget when doing this, you will have no power steering, so be careful.

SOURCE: Loud intermittent engine/belt squeal

Hello Rudy.
There are a few items that can create the squeal.
The squeal is created by the belt slipping on a pulley, but what causes it?

Well, first of all as the belt ages the rubber tends to get hard and dirt/sand impregnates into the rubber. Because of this it loses its grip on the pulley.
It's especially bad first thing because the rubber is generally cooler/harder and your alternator is trying to charge your battery up.

Second cause is a loose drive belt. Years ago V-belts had to be checked and adjusted often as the wore. The serpentine belts used today stretch and wear very little and are kept tight by a spring tensioned pulley. Sometimes, especially in a vehicle that has been sitting, the tensioner pivot would corrode and not allow proper tension to be applied. This would allow the belt to come loose and slip.

Third on the list is a pulley out of line with the others. If this is the case one of the pulleys may force the belt over to the side and lift the belt out of the grooves. This will also accelerate belt wear.

Next will be a worn or seized bearing on one of the components the belt rides on. This will include anything the belt turns.
If seized it will strain the belt and cause it to slip.
If worn the bearing may tilt in and give a similar symptom as a pulley out of line.
This should cover the cause of your problem. If you have further questions please leave it in "add comments" and I will return to check.

Renault Kangoo 1900 diesel van squeeling over 26 mph but ok if i hold the same speed.


Has anyone thought it might be the clutch release bearing? This is of course inside the bell housing, between the engine and transmission.
For a long time before the bearing goes completely out and need replacing, it could start squealing like that. It is a sealed bearing, but when old the internal grease may dissipate, and cause squealing.

Car is making a high pitch squeal some times when driving,noise gets worse when I take foot off the gas pedal. Also has odor of boiled eggs at times. Is this a tranny problem or emission system failure or...


The high pitch squeal ia most likely the serpentine belt on the front of the engine you can buy some belt dressing from the part store and put it on there and fix that or some soap will work also, the belt may also need to be tightened. As for the egg smell if it smells like eggs it's the catylitic converter doing it's job and is normal, although you should not be able to smell it inside the car when driving you may have an exhaust leak and could be very dangerous carbon monoxide exposure.

A/c squeal


Have the belt tensioner checked, it might have a weak spring keeping the belt from having the right tension on the pulleys.

High squeal from engine area


i would suspect one of the idler pulleys, alternator bearings, water pump baring, you can isolate the location of the sound by using a short piece of hose, hold one end at your ear and with the engine running and the squealing noise evident carefully aim the other end of the hose at the deferment pulley locations, as you get closer to the noise source you will hear a marketable rise in noise you hear through the hose, careful not to get the hose caught up in the belt

Looking for location of bcm on 97 astro van dash


The BCM is located immediately above the heater controls inside the dash on my 2004 Astro. I know it controls the headlights and locks but not gauges. Haynes says the gauge fuse supplies it power....but I'm not going to bank on that one.
