A common pulley which runs belts is ceasing up when heated so its breaking the belts.

    This is the alternator belt ,the crank pulley is the only one there ,but it starts fine,what other than a pulley would cause the breaking and sqqalling ?

SOURCE: I need to adjust my fan belts on a Nissan 1991 300ZX Turbo.

Try spraying one item at a time with WD-40 or belt dressing. Try not to worry about doing the belt first and save it for last. Most causes of squeals are galzed belts from being too tight or the pulleys of whatever item, the bearings are going out or were improperly lubed.

This is the cheapest method to truoble shoot the annyoing noises.

Hope this helps!

That should be right if it is an idler pulley. On belts that do not have idler pulley you will have to loosen lock bolt on adjuster. Like alternator

I have a chirping or bearing sounding noise, that I am trying to isolate on my daughters college car. Sound varies with RPM.


Get an inexpensive mechanics stethoscope and put the end on the shaft part of idler pulleys, housing near bearings of alternator and water pump etc.
If that doesn't give clear results, try squirting a little water on the serpentine belt as if runs [a length of small drip irrigation hose works really well to get a little water on the belt]. The water will provide harmless temporary lubrication to the belt and change the sound if it is caused by the belt slipping.

Ive just changed all three belts on my Mitsubishi challenger 99 and the the alternator/pulley/harmonic balance belt is sqealing its head off..(process of elimination..spray pulley with lubrication s


Belt squealing is ALWAYS and ONLY loose and possibly damp / wet belts
Try checking the tension on the belts and tighten if necessary.
If you have recently worked on the car, then you may have not tightened nuts bolts to correct Torque and they have become loose causing loss of tension in the belts.

You should NEVER spray anything on the belts. !!!! The chemicals can weaken them and they will be more likely to slip in the future.

How to change belts on 2002 Nissan Frontier 4 cylinder


2002 frontier 4 cyl: 1) take off air intake tube, 2 screws 13 mm above radiator. 2) 1st belt for power stirring has pulley, undo pulley screw and unscrew adjuster bolt enough to take belt off 3) 2nd belt for alternator and water pump has no pulley but adjusting bolt and mounting bolt on alternator pulley, loosen mounting bolt and unscrew adjusting bolt enough to take belt off, if alternator will not move go under the truck and remove plastic cover- 6 screws 13 mm heads, after that look directly under alt. Pulley and should see a screw head 9/16 in, loosen it so alternator can move, now should be easy to remove belt ( it will be a lot harder to put new one though) 4) 3rd belt for compressor has pulley so follow #2 to remove it ,have to be done under the truck. First 2 belts will have to work around fan blades to remove them so wear gloves. After replacing belts remember that not to over tighten bolt on pulleys.

I changed the ac belt and idler pulley but still have the squel when the ac is turned on


Squeal from a new belt/pulley isolates the problem to a loose belt.
Rule of thumb: in the longest span of the belt (between pulleys), you should be able to
deflect the belt by 3/8th inch by pressing on it.
This is easier with a drivebelt installation/tightening tool kit - available in the loan-a-tool
programs run by Advance Auto Parts and Autozone.

Are you over tightening the belt? If I remember correctly, you should have 1/4" belt deflection after you tighten it.

Check the factory service manual: http://www.xenons130.com/reference.html

My alternator belt is as tight as it can go and is still squealing, but it is a new belt recently. What can I do? I wonder if I was sold the wrong belt originally, so that it is slightly too big to tighten...


Since your post just says 97 Nissan Pickup I cannot be specific. But, generally:
  • if the belt adjuster/tensioner is at the end of it's adjustment then you need a shorter belt.
  • Make sure there are no foreign materials on the pulleys or new belt
  • If it's an automatic belt tensioner it might have to be replaced
