Question about Kia Rio

Open Question

Kia Rio makes squealing sound from passenger side of engine compartment when accelerating from a dead stop, on a turn, with the A/C on. Squealing is reduced as vehicle straigtens out of turn, and as driver lets off throttle, and gradually goes away as vehicle continues straight after turn. Problem is intermittent.

SOURCE: Engine taps when accelerating, let off gas and it

HOPE IT'S NOT PISTON SLAP, IF LACK OF MAINTANENCE WAS THE CASE MAY BE INTERNAL DAMAGE OR VALVETRAIN DAMAGE. IF IT RUNS ROUGH MAYBE SOMETHING ON ROTATING ASSY DAMAGED.

SOURCE: 2006 kia sorento makes a squealing sound under

It is either the tesnioner or the belt....easy way to find out is to spray the pulley that has no grooves....that's the tensioner. Spray it with WD-40 or equivalent, in the middle of the pulley. That is the bearing housing. Spray only that first. Start the motor...if it goes away, then you have found your problem. Try not to spray the belt.

If it still squeals, spray the belt with the engine running. If it squeals, replace the belt.

Has anything been done to the motor recenlty? If so, one of the pulleys may be a little off-centered.

Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: squealing sound - front driver's side brakes

This sounds like a wear indicator( a metal tab on the brake pad) is doing its job, warning you that the brake pads need replacement soon. you can bend the wear indicators away from the rotor so they won't make contact. This will stop the annoying noise. Replace the pads and check the brakes soon. Brake pads should always be changed on both wheels at thge same time, so change the other front pads also.

I have the very same problem with my 99 Nissan Altima. I have replaced both the belt and the tension idler. I believe it may be the AC idler pulley.
