If this engine has a serpentine belt, then chances are there is a bearing going out in the A/C compressor, idler tensioner, alternator, or other rotating item driven by the belt in the engine compartment.

If the belts are regular V belts, then add them to the list, including that they may be loose as well.

Alternator pulley shears off. Alternator is about 1 year old. The last few times I started the car there was a hard screech noise (like metal clanging) coming from the area around the serpentine belt....


If the bolt was lose and caused the pulley to bend down the power behind the belt was too great and sheared the pulley. Check belt for damage and replace pulley.

Engine screeches when running. revving the motor makes it stop momentarily


Could be a belt screeching. Fan belt, A/C belt, Serpentine Belt, alternator belt, etc. Easiest way to isolate which belt is to open the hood and use your ears to see where the screeching is coming from. Left, right, front, behind the engine? Spray some WD-40 on the belt you think is making noise and if it quiets right away, then that is the belt making the noise. Either the tensioner needs adjusting or the belt needs replacing. The WD-40 does not hurt the car, it'll start screeching again in a few days when it wears off.

2006 Dodge Gr. Caravan. Loud humming noise upon


Misalignment of the belt, incorrect belt, worn or loose tensioner, Too tight of an adjustment (many service centers do this on purpose so when the belt breaks in it becomes properly adjusted, I do not believe in this philosophy), The belt is actually one long belt called a serpentine belt.....

When I start my car I hear a fast knocking noise from the engine. my oil is fine. as the car warms up the knocking diminishes.


You have either worn out connecting rod bearings or a weak oil pump it is possible the oil pump pick up screen is clogged.

Hello, I purchased a 2003 Hyundai XG350 last month. When I start the car, put AC or defrost on, and then start driving there is a screeching noise that lasts for 10 seconds and then goes away. If I stop...


See if it goes away when you turn the A/C off. The a/c comes on when you sre in the defrost so yo don't hit the windshield with hot air. The screaching is more than likely the A/C clutch trying to engage, that why it was overlooked or ignored by the mechanic. It is a common thing. The battery should be allowed to recoup from the starting of the car which a few minutes of running woll help so the a/c clutch gets full battery voltage to function.. Turning on the defrost and /or the A/c after about 3 minutes of warm up. Open your hood and have someone turn the a/c on and off, you can hear and sctually see the a/c clutch doing its irritating thing.But keep your fingers out off the engine and don't lean over it with loose clothing. Good Luck, Ned
