Question about 2000 Hyundai Accent

Hyundai accent squealing very loud

Every time I start up my car it squeals very loud until it warms up for a little. It also squeals when I make sharp turns. I put some stuff on the steering belt thinking it might be that and it works and sounds fine the first time but doesn't even last a day.

You need to replace the belt.
Once a belt gets glazed it will slip no matter how tight it is.

The belt isn't tensioned correctly. Spay some WD40 on the belt whilst engine is running. May cure temporarily.

SOURCE: power steering noise

The belt is almost assuredly to tight and needs to be loosened just a hair. It is hard sometimes to get the tension just right. Try looseneing it a bit and hopefully that will help. I have had the same problem in the past.

SOURCE: Hyundai Accent 2001 making a loud-fan-like noise

POWER STEERING PROBLEM - CONTAINER CONSIST TWO LEVELS. SHOULD THE BOTTOM PART BE THE NORMAL COLOUR OF THE FLUID AND THE TOP PART APPEARS TO BE DIFFERENT THEN REMOVE THE CONTAINER AND CLEAN PROPERLY AS THERE IS A SIEVE BETWEEN THE TWO LEVELS WHICH IS BLOCKED. DRAIN OIL FROM POWER STEERING SYSTEM AND REFILL WITH NEW OIL.
iF BELTS WERE RECENTLY CHANGED THEN THE PROBLEM MIGHT LY BY ONE OF THE PULLEYS THAT IS WARN. MEANING THAT THE BELT INBEDDS TO DEEP INTO THE PULLEY AND CAUSE THE BELT TO SQUEL. SHOULD YOU POUR WATER ONTO THE BELT WHILE IT IS SQUELING IT PROVES THAT IT IS EITHER THE BELT THAT NEEDS REPLACELMENT OR ONE OF THE PULLEY PROVIDING THE BELT TENSION IS INSPECT

hi, the first thing i would have said the fault was was going to be a fan belt/ alternater belt if this is to loose or to tight then this can give you the noise you are hearing, one way of finding out if its a belt making the noise is to go out and get a spray like wd40 and then spray this on the belt then if the noise goes away you then know that its that belt causing you the problem.

If the belts have not been replaced recently then this could be the cause of your problem, spray the belt with a spray or even soapy water then give you car a try if your using soapy water make sure you get the whole belt wet then try the car if the noise is then gone you know the belt is at fault.

If you have power steering then low power steering fluid can cause the power steering pump to squeek so check the level and fill it up to the highest mark then start the car and turn the wheel fully left then fully right then back to the middle then check the level again.
Low steering fluid can cause the noise you hear.

If after doing this its not the belt making the noise and neither the power steering pump then the only thing left that could cause the noise you are having is a dry bearing on one of the pulleys now this could be the alternater pulley or power steering pulley basically any pulley that the belt is running on could be causing you the noise you hear.
To stop the noise you need to buy a spray oil or spray lube then give these pulleys a good spray all around where the bearing is in the middle if the bearing gets to dry it can sieze and cause you loads of problems so go and buy a spray lube and give all of the pulleys a good spray at the front and the back try and get it in towards where the bearing is in the middle this should then stop the noise that you are hearing.

you can spray wd40 on the pulleys but remember this isnt a oil or lube it will just stop the noise for a couple of minutes so you could tell witch pulley is causing you the problem your better of buying a proper spray lube and give all the pulleys a spray where the bearing is in the middle this should then solve any noises you hear.

Make sure you check the engine oil level to rule out the noise coming from the inner workings of the engine ok


Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok.

I have a loud squealing noise upon starting the car. the squealing normally lasts about 30-45 seconds. sometimes the noise will appear aftrer pulling off from a stopped position, as well. all belts


Try to tighten the belts a little firm.Sounds like when engine idling no squelling only when about to take off .Some times belts may seem ok on the outside but if you look on inner side you tend to see cracks in the belts .

2003 hyundai accent producing loud squeaks only at start up especially in the cold


I had a bad power steering belt on a 2001, same issue. The problem is that the after market belts don't have enough thickness and the right taper to get sufficient grip on the pulley, so the new belt squeals more! I had to get a Hyundal belt which works well.

Hyundai accent squealing very loud


Have you checked the belt for cracks? Also, you never want to use the spray on the belt. If the belt is new, then you want to check the pulleys for dirt or old rubber that melted to the pulley. A good way to clean the pulleys is to remove the belt and use soapy water and a tooth brush and clean each pulley. If you are having a hard time getting all the junk off, you could try using a pick or a screwdriver and CAREFULLY pressing it against each pulley until they are clean. If that doesn't work then you could either have a misalignment of pulleys, wrong belt, or possibly fluids leaking on belt.

My ac is only cold when I am driving, my heat is only hot when I am driving, not getting cold air or hot air in idle position?


So many mechanics, so little consensus. Sounds pretty common.
I can't say as to why hot and cold only when moving, but it sounds like a weak performing system.
As for the squealing, I would suggest removing one belt at a time, and see if one eliminates the squeal. That would be the problem belt or pulley or component. Also, if you have any idler pulleys (a stand-alone pulley) on the belt system, be sure and check them as well. Spin them without the belt on, and see if they make any noise.
It would seem you need a mechanic who is willing to spend some time with you on this to find the problem. When you find a good one, you will know it by his output, and make yourself a regular customer. Good luck.
