More than likely youre going to have to replace it, they USUALLY dont loosen up. The bearings look to be shot.

What makes a belt squeak?


Belts squeak for the same reason tires do when they spin. They are slipping. Something isn't turning as fast as the belt wants it to. On ford it's usually ether the idler sprocket or the tensioner. If you remove the belt and try spinning all of the pulleys by hand.( note the crank wont spin freely) you will usually be able to tell witch ones slipping.

Something on the fan belt is squealing..ii think its 1 of the pullys but not sure..we replaced the belt but its still quealing..how can i fix this


Take a look at the pulleys and inspect them for paint wear. Check to see if the paint is worn off the pulley where a belt should appear that it USED to run. If there happens to be wear on the tensioner pulley (the one with the spring) and the belt is riding in a different place it may be worn. The second one I'd check is the idler pulley. Remove the belt and spin it backwards and feel for resistance. If I've helped, please rate my assistance and leave a testimonial. Thanks for using Fixya.

Getting a 'squealing' noise from the engine all the time. What is the cause likely to be??


Depending on the model it could be a belt alignment problem, loose belt or bad bearing in a pulley. If the squeal gets louder if you spray water in the area of the pulley it is most likely a loose belt. I would start by looking at the belt itself first then spray WD-40 in the bearing area of the Idler pulley and tensioning pulley. If the WD-40 works the problem is a bad bearing. Otherwise it is again, most likely, a loose belt. As a final check you can spray belt dressing on the belt and if the squeal goes away then it is your belt being loose. This could be caused by a belt being stretched over time or a tensioner not working correctly due to a weak spring, if equipped with spring loaded tensioner. If it doesn't have a spring loaded tensioner then you may just need to tighten the belt by adjusting it.

When I start my car it squeals really loud and smells like a vaccuum belt is burning. it also overheats while sitting still unless the air conditioner is on and now won't pass emissions. what could be...


Your squeal sounds like you have a pulley frozen, or sticking, that the belt can't turn, and it will burn. You need to determine which pulley or idler pulley it is.
The cooling problem may be related (water pump) , or just a failing fan switch, or fan. See if you have two, as some vehicles have one, and a second for air conditioning.

I have a 2004 nissan i replaced the serpentine belt and now when you start it, it squels for a second.


your belt tensioner (sp) might be loose you can also use belt dressing. the squel is from the belt sliding on a pulley trying to catch up with the speed of the pulley

Timing belt and pulley


1.Your engine has an internal timing chain, not a belt.
Therefore I'm going to assume that you mean the serpentine drive belt.
Common causes for belt to fail is either a mis-aligned or damaged pulley, improper belt tension, or bad tensioner spring (if equipped with spring loaded tensioner) You mentioned a loose pulley but didn't say which one! That's what I'd look at first! Also, make sure that all pulleys have no "wobble" indicating a bad pulley bearing Most common: water pump or idler pulley.

Loosen tension on serpent belt


Hi rdt,
The tensioner is on a spring arm, no need to take it off.
  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
  • The tensioner pulley is near the Alternator toward the center of the engine. It's on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done
