The engine belt is what squeaks, usually caused by bad tensioner pulleys.

My pulley busted into pieces on my 1997 jeep grand Cherokee 4wd v8. It is the PS pulley. is this an easy job and why would something like this happen?


The part is not that expensive. http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/shop_years/jeep-cherokee-power-steering-pump-pulley-1997.html
The thing is those pulleys don't come attached to the pump. They are separate and have to be installed and removed with a puller. I would suggest that you look on youtube for video and see what you can find. Also those don't just break, it may be something that was done when your friend worked on it or the pump is going bad.

How to fix a noisy water pump on a grand jeep Cherokee 2007 3.00 deseil


a noisy water pump ( low growl or rumble noise) is a problem bearing and the cheapest fix is a new water pump
squeaks or other high pitched noises can be tested with soapy water on the belt--noise will stop for a short period of time
If the water pump housing is cast iron, you may be able to get a repair kit for the pump but the cost of the kit and the labor to do the job is generally around the price of a new pump

Does squeaking coming from automoble water pump indicate water pump bearing is bad


If you take the belt off and there is no noticeable in/out, up/down, or side to side movement of pulley and there is no noise when rotating, a new belt may be all you need. Make sure you check ALL of the other belt driven components including idler pulleys and belt tensioner pulley. A worn tensioner can squeak also.

Im keep going through water pumps, 3 water pumps in 40,000 miles seems alot. someone said could be a bad head gasket but it doesn't smoke or use anti freeze


Yes its a lot of pumps. Who is doing the changing of the pump? I would suspect the belt is way too tight and wearing out the bearing. The belt should be firm but not taut as a bow string. there should be about 1 inch of sideways play, inline with pulleys, at the longest section of belt.
Other thing to check is pulley alignment. Do your belts squeak a lot? Are the pulleys lined up well or is the belt trying to pull the pump pully away from its location?

Did you get all pumps from same place? It is just barely possible that there was a bad batch made. Ask at parts store if any others complain of similar issue. Have they gave you the right type of pump.?

Squeaking noise and antifreeze leaking....waterpump replcement perhaps?


With the engine turned off, put your finger up behind under the pump pulley. if you find antifreeze there likely the pump seal has failed. Otherwise, locate the leak source and make whatever repair is necessary. You will get a noise any time water or coolant gets on the drive belt. Best to look before going through a pump replacement to find later you have a pin hole in the radiator on a hose!!!

I'm hearing a load bearing noise from the engine, I thought it was my water pump, but it's not


i had a problem with my compass when it was new. at first there was a nice kinda high pitched sound coming from the engine compartment. it was not loud so i ignored it. after a while the sound seemed to get louder and not even, kind of like a loud squeak. it will come and go. and yes it was the water pump. the dealer replaced it and no more noise after that.

Take the belt off check the clutch fan and spin all the pullies insure they spin freely and do not wobble if any do replace them if all checks out ok put a new belt on. make sure the belt tension is not to tight should have about 3/4 inch play.
