You may have gotten the wrong pump. Some are reverse rotation, depending on your belt routing. Remove the thermostat and see if the coolant is flowing in the PROPER direction.

My 06 corolla S has a squeaky serpentine belt. i bought the car in february with 75000 miles the engine had been "detailed" and shiny greasy stuff sprayed all over the engine compartment and...


Yes you should definitely replace it. (However bear in mind that the belt noise may return at some stage once the new belt gets a bit of use and wear).

This is a very common problem with serpentine belts. When the belts have a bit of wear and they are cold and damp they can tend to squeak and squeal on some vehicles. Sometimes the noise will disappear or reduce once the belt is warmed up but this is not always the case.

It is very unwise to apply any type of lubricant to the belt like soap, silicone spray or other materials because this can cause belt slippage. If the belt is slipping it is not performing it's designed function.

I have found from experience that the only way to properly overcome noisy belts is to fit a new one. They are not expensive and are easy to fit on most vehicles. I replaced an noisy belt on one of my own vehicles 6 months ago and it is now silent. (Other than the noise, the condition of the "old" belt was good).

If you are going to fit it yourself make sure you draw up a belt routing diagram BEFORE you remove the old belt so you know how to refit the new item. (Many people remove belts and then cannot work out how to refit them around the various pulleys).
Give the belt pulleys a good clean before you fit the new belt.

Keep your old belt in the car as a spare in case you ever have a breakage.

I hope this helps.

I have 2002 A6, 54K. On very cold days sounds like power steering is having problems, when I turn wheel. However, once spring like conditions appear above 50F, noise disappears. Also looked a serpentine...


the noise is coming from the power steering, or from the belt when you are steering on a cold day?
If the belt is noisy, and not the power steering, the belt must be replaced, or just cleaned with a special spray. the noise appear only on cold because when you steer you take energy from the steering pump, which takes power from the engine, and the belt doesn't have perfect grip on low temperatures, or is just dirty.

2007 chevy silverado 1500 5-sp belt squealing/chirping


From what you have described I believe you have intermittent belt squeal in the serpentine belt. These tend to squeal in cold and damp weather on some vehicles and usually the noise will typically dissipate once the belt warms up from friction and radiated engine heat. This is not always the case however.

You should check the belt for wear and, if in doubt, replace it as these are quite inexpensive items which need periodic replacement in any event. Also make sure the current belt - and any replacement - is properly aligned on the pulleys.

Very often when you replace the serpentine belt the squeal will disappear but return again as the new belt "wears in". Your vehicle is probably still running the original belt so you should replace it as a first step unless you have a record of it being replaced in the past 18 months or so.

There are some temporary fixes for noisy belts which sometimes work (such as removing it and lightly spraying the belt with "Belt Grip"). There are also 1 or 2 others but I would not recommend them.

I recommend you also talk to a competent experienced service department person in the nearest CHEV dealer. You will likely find that that there will have been a number of owners coming in reporting the same issue.

Hope this helps.

If you have no record of when the belt was last changed I would replace it even if it looks ok. These are easy and quick for an experienced person to replace.

My engine got so noisy and when i removed the engine cover the timing chain looked a bit loose


The timing belt shouldn't cause the engine to be noisy unless it is so loose as to slap parts surrounding it. The engine will become noisy if a loose timing belt skips a tooth or 2 and messes up the timing of the engine.

On another hand, if it is visually loose at the timing gears it is imperative to get the system looked at by a mechanic. The belt may be ok but the tensioner may need to be replaced but if you replace the tensioner, you may as well replace the belt. Timing belt should have some play at the point between the crank pulley and the cam gears.

Take it to a certified mechanic to have it looked at and measure the play on the timing belt to check if it is still in specifications.

Timing belts are only good for about 60,000 miles. If you are over that I would recommend replacing the belt and tensioner but may vary from car to car. Check a repair manual for specifics to your vehicle.

Noisy water pump pulley,alternator pulley..timing belt tensioner


I have a 1995 xj6....same problem. I replaced the belts, water pump, and the alternator. Still does it. As I play with the tension on the belt (belt that drives water pump, alternator) it goes away and comes back. If I remove the belt, the metal to metal screech stops. I then, with just the belt, turned the main pulley on the front of the engine, and there was the sound! The main pulley has 2 belts that run on it. Also, 2 pulley tracks. They SHOULD move simultaneously and be super meshed. But the rear one moves on its own under tension until it warms up and I guess, the bushing maybe expands. Now.....how do I fix it??????

Check Engine and noisy belts in the hood


your car has a timing chain with a hydraulic tensioner. is it just an unstable idle ( revs up and down) or does the engine have a slight misfire?

Engine noisy


Look for water pump, fan belts, steering belt, AC belts and pulleys. These are common causes of these strange noises which come on and off. Also check all the mechanical nuts, bolts, screws are tightened and not rattled.
