SOURCE: ac compressor pulley bearings bad, and pulley makes noise.

buy yourself a remanufactured A/C compressor, as you need specialized tools to rebuild and old compressor as well as the seals.

could be the alternator, water pump
take the belt and spin all the pulleys and listen for noise and make sure they turn smoothly
another trick is to take a can of wd40 or equivalent and spray the bearings 1 at a time till the noise goes away or quiets down

SOURCE: my idler pulley is making a squeaky light grinding niose.

belt dressing / new belt / but the grinding means the idler puller is going to grenade soon and you wont have any belt on it so go buy a new idler and change it right away or you risk the engine overheating by not turning the water pump .if it's grinding greasing the old one wont do much help .damage is already done in the bearing .and there sealed bearings . you just throw away the old 1.

Why is my 1996 Saturn sc2 sequeling like a pig is it the surpantean belt or a pully??


sounds like it could be the a pulley bearing. you could try spraying them with some lubricant to give you an idea witch pulley it is you can also try taking the belt off and seeing if any pulley have any play or makes noise when you spin it.

Serpentine belt route


ok I do not know what the cofigure is on your jeep but let me explain how it works and then you may be able to put it on. First look at the pulleys and see witch ones are smooth and witch ones have lines. smooth pulleys match to the smooth side of the belt ridgid side matches with ridgid side of belt. next I will tell you a rule to most serentine belts. Your crankshaft pully is the main drive so the belt will rap around almost 3/4ths the way around the pulley. All driven pulleys witch are the ones the run the water pump, altenator, compresor, and power steering rap around 3/5ths around the pulleys then you have the tentioner witch will apply pressure down on the belt so make shure the belt is under the pressure side. You can put a 3/8th ratchet in the tentioner to move it. if you still have pulleys that I have not covered they are their to complete the right amount of rap on the driven pulleys. The main thing to look at is if its smooth then put the smooth side of the belt on that pulley. If this did not help just coment back and I can get the book out tommorrow when I go to the shop and email you a copy of the diagram

Crank shaft pully makeing a lot of noise


needs to be replaced, rubber bushings are possibly worn causing these noises. This could eventually allow the outter and inner parts of the pulley to separate.

I have a 99 Hyundai Elantra and almost every time I turn the car on, it makes this awful squealing noise. The noise sounds to be coming from somewhere in the engine and is really bad when I have my wheel...


hi, the first thing i would have said the fault was was going to be a fan belt/ alternater belt if this is to loose or to tight then this can give you the noise you are hearing, one way of finding out if its a belt making the noise is to go out and get a spray like wd40 and then spray this on the belt then if the noise goes away you then know that its that belt causing you the problem.

If the belts have not been replaced recently then this could be the cause of your problem, spray the belt with a spray or even soapy water then give you car a try if your using soapy water make sure you get the whole belt wet then try the car if the noise is then gone you know the belt is at fault.

If you have power steering then low power steering fluid can cause the power steering pump to squeek so check the level and fill it up to the highest mark then start the car and turn the wheel fully left then fully right then back to the middle then check the level again.
Low steering fluid can cause the noise you hear.

If after doing this its not the belt making the noise and neither the power steering pump then the only thing left that could cause the noise you are having is a dry bearing on one of the pulleys now this could be the alternater pulley or power steering pulley basically any pulley that the belt is running on could be causing you the noise you hear.
To stop the noise you need to buy a spray oil or spray lube then give these pulleys a good spray all around where the bearing is in the middle if the bearing gets to dry it can sieze and cause you loads of problems so go and buy a spray lube and give all of the pulleys a good spray at the front and the back try and get it in towards where the bearing is in the middle this should then stop the noise that you are hearing.

you can spray wd40 on the pulleys but remember this isnt a oil or lube it will just stop the noise for a couple of minutes so you could tell witch pulley is causing you the problem your better of buying a proper spray lube and give all the pulleys a spray where the bearing is in the middle this should then solve any noises you hear.

Make sure you check the engine oil level to rule out the noise coming from the inner workings of the engine ok


Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok.

My belt squeals. It's very cold. Does that have


hi the cold can make the belt damp causing the noise your having but tightening the belt should solve your problem.

You may find that its not the belt thats squeking but it could be one of the pulleys but you wont know witch one unless you can hear where the noise is coming from or if you have the belt off and can turn each pulley listening for the noise.
Hopefully its just the belt needs tightening so go this way first but if you still have the noise then the chances are you have a dry bearing on one of the pulleys.

2006 Toyota Corolla w/VVT-I 16 valve with 66K miles - screeching sound from engine compartment, belts seem good.


hi, i know you say the belts seem good but one way to rule the fan belt or alternater belt out is to pour water onto the belt and if the noise stops then the chances are the belt needs tightening.
If how ever you still have the noise then this would point towards one of the pulleys bearings running dry you can try putting oil into where the bearing is its difficult to get the oil in their as their is very little gap so using a spray oil would be your best option.

If after doing this you still have the noise then your going to have to replace the pulley thats giving you the noise to find out witch pulley it is spray each one in turn with spray lube and see witch one makes the noise less and then this is the one that needs replacing.

Your power steering pump can give you the noise your getting if the fluid is to low so make sure you check all the levels ok.

Air contioner pulley making a lot of noise, is it easy to replace? Can i just replace the wheel?


Yes, you can just replace the pulley, or the clutch assembly. Are you sure it is the compressor pulley? The Squealing sound is normally caused by an idler pulley or a stretched belt. I would change the serpentine belt at the same time of changing either of the pulleys.
