Go to a dealers parts dept,they will show
you a picture on the computer & you can point
to what you need

If it turns out they want too much for a complete
part you don't need,then you will have to come
up with your own solution for the foam replacement

this noise is caused by a defective IAC, or Idle air control valve, replace it.

SOURCE: Hello I have a 2000

It can cause it to overheat if it is leaking coolant into the engine or outside of the engine. Replace your thermostat and check your oil for water and your antifreeze for oil. This will confirm if your head gasket or intake manifold gasket is leaking. Check you water pump for leaks and and make sure your coolant reservoir and radiator are full with antifreeze. Another possibility is your catalytic converter is plugged up

SOURCE: air conditioner belt squeaks

hallclifford that is a very basic and limited answer. My belt has been squeaking even after I got brand new belts. The answer below is more comprehensive.

Check your belt tension first and the condition of your belt
Second if those are ok start the car and have someone turn the ac on while your looking at your compressor. If its locked up it will cause the pulley to stop spinning creating the noise.
OR we could get way technical here and say you have a crank and cam seals leaking or a leaking power steering pump getting oil on your ac belt.
Check the obvious first and if it still does it I would take it to a trusted mechanic.

SOURCE: I have a 2000 Buick LaSabre that code P0410 that

Hi, the P0410 code refers to the emissions system. The AIR pump puts air to the exhaust to lower emissions. It takes in outside air and pumps it through two one-way check valves into each bank of the exhaust.
Whenever the code is set, the one-way check valves have worn out or failed and allow water (which occurs naturally in the exhaust) back into the pump. In any cold climate, especially in climates with higher humidity, this water may be more excessive. The water partially fills the AIR pump, it can then freeze. When the PCM commands the pump on, if the pump is frozen it cannot turn, thus overloading the circuit and "popping" the fuse.
If you simply replace the AIR pump the problem may return again (and again). If you replace the pump, also clean out the hoses and replace the one-way check valve.

What causes a squeaky sound from the engine of an 2000 Isuzu rodeo when engine is running?

it could be one of the belts. if you put a little wax or brake fluid on the belt in a couple of places and the squeak goes away then you either have a loose belt/s or the belts/s need replacing. if no change it could be the timing belt making the noise.

2000 montero sport: There's a loud squealing noise coming from the engine. What could be wrong?

Squealing is most common with loose or worn belts, I would start by replacing the drive belt on the front of the motor and go from there, Its easier to troubleshoot a squealing motor if you know that the belt or belts are good.

With the engine off, try using a soapy solution using dishwashing liquid, and rag to clean the belt and pulleys. Antifreeze is very slippery and sticks to surfaces. Clean it the best you can, and also tighten the belt slightly.

Check power steering and all fluids to see where this leak is coming from.
If the a/c compressor engages and the belt is oily, that could cause the squealing noise, or the compressor is bad and locking up, due to a lack of oil.

He may have accidently knocked some wires loose during the install or when your belt flew off the pullies it hit some wires and broke them. Check for wire damage around the pullies.
