Question about 1995 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

Engine Heating Up

Last night my Pathfinder started making this squealing noise, under the hood. It didn't last long and then stopped. But then the engine started heating up and the temperature gauge began to rise into the hot zone. Luckily I was almost home. Any ideas why it is heating up. The belts look okay.

    Thanks for your response. There are two belts. I will check them again when I get home.

    I hate to say it, but get the cylinders compression checked, sounds like a head gasket has blown.

    does your vehicle have two belts, check the belt that runs the the water pump and see if it is still there.

2001 escape squealing noise when engine is under presure


Use a mechanic's stethoscope to locate the culprit sqeal. Have a technician rev the engine, in order to produce the squeal. Lay the stethoscope tip utop the water pump, nearest the armature. Locate squeal in this fashion against the idler pulley(if applicable), the alternator, the air conditioner compressor, power steering pump (if applicable), the cam shafts (if applicable), and finally the crank. This will help isolate the location of the squeal.7_20_2012_9_07_34_pm.jpg

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.
