Question about 2006 Nissan Pathfinder
I had it in for repair and they said it was belts but did not cure it it is like someone running a iron bar along a corragated fence like a tinny noise i am sorry i bought it i have it 3 weeks and have only driven it 3 times any help thank you
Hi Herbert, we'll need you to describe more about the sound. Where does it seem to be coming from, the front of the vehicle or rear? Does the sound only come while making a corner or is it present all the time while driving? Does the sound change with light brake application? Does the sound seem related to the engine, brakes, suspension or braking systems? I guessing that it is from the engine compartment. If the service shop guys have told you the problem is with the belts, why did they not replace them? Regards John

SOURCE: loud squealing noise
The noise is most likely the serpentine belt. Check it's condition and that of the belt tensioner. It sounds like the belt is slipping, causing the squealing noise u describe. As the belt warms up, it's getting a better 'grip' and the noise stops. Turning on the heat also turns on the a/c in newer cars, this added drag on the belt (one more component to turn, the a/c compressor) would explain why it happens when u turn on the heat. Is the belt original? If yes, it's time to change it, and check the belt tensioner to make sure it's doing it's job of keeping the belt snug on all the pulleys. Let me know how u make out.

Has your fuel economy dropped? It may not have, what it sounds like to me is a low rpm miss. You could have a dirty injector or injectors, hard to tell unless hooked up to engine analyzer
