Tensioner bolt bottoms out on idler pulley (belt for Poly-V A/C & Idler) on 2000 Nissan Pathfinder SE


Pulleys also wear.
You've changed the belts - a workshop would then change that particular pulley, if asked to do so.

Start your engine, then put a few drops of water onto that pulley. Does the squealing noise disappear? If so, the pulley is slightly worn in the groove - and this happens to all vehicles.

Your option is to either replace that pulley or use a spray-on anti squeal compound.

Cold start fan belt squeak... slight misalignment


its possible that a pulley replacement is needed but i would first reccomend buying a lubricating spray from your local hardware store and applying it to your squeeling belt if the noise stops then you may just need to tighten or replace the belt. in addition an overtightend belt can cause undesired stress on the pulleys.

2001 Pathfinder screeches on start


Remove the belt and check all pulleys for smooth operation. any binding at all is amplified when belt tension is applied. also check the belt itself...If it's glazed or dried out, it can be noisy.

High pitch squeeling sound at start up and while idiling coming from engine area


the squealing when you start it and are idleing s probably the fan belt or serpentine belt, it may need to be replaced or it could be that it needs some belt dressing sprayed on it. belts will squeal if they are damp from the moisture in the air. as for the fan you most likely have an electric fan in your car and they sometimes run for a few seconds after you shut the vehicle off. It would be a good ideato have someone ceck the fan for you and the belts to be on the safe side.

94 nissan maxima se, Squeeling loud when car is started.


Hello,
I can't tell exactly what it is since I cannot hear it, but in most cases it's a belt. Check that first, or have a friend help you - one of you can start the car and the other one can look under a hood to search for the squeeling part.
