First, to start out free, I would take your old belt loose and check all your pulleys to see if they feel like they are grinding or making any noise.  Sometimes the squeak is from your belt pulleys that have bad bearings.  These are usually easily changed by just removing a bolt.  If all your pulleys seem to be good I would change the belt.  Be sure go get a higher quality belt.  Gates and Goodyear make really good belts.  If you get a cheap belt, you will be right back where you started.  Also most parts stores carry a 1 year warranty on their belts and they will honor the warranty if the belt starts squeaking.
Any questions, feel free to ask!!!  Please rate!!! Thanks!

When i turn on my car i hear squeaking sound


Belts? Mice? Hallucination? ALL DEPENDS ON WHERE THE "SQUEAKING" IS COMING FROM.

Open the hood. If the squeaking is coming from the area of the serpentine belt, it is probably time to replace your belt. Also, check all fluid levels.
If the squeaking is coming from a particular pulley (such as the air conditioning compressor or the power steering hydraulic pump), there may be a problem with whatever the pulley is attached to.
If the squeaking appears to be coming from outside of the car, you are scaring the mice or hallucinating.

Squeaking sound coming from engine area. Not sure if pulley or belt or something else.


Very possible it is a belt or pulley.
You could use a section of heater hose and a funnel to listen for the source, or take the belt off and run the engine without it to see if it continues.

97 plymouth vourger new belt still squeeks


It sounds like one of your pulleys may be having bearing issues, one way to check this is to go to the parts store and buy some "belt dressing" it is a spray that stops belt squeak. Find a safe spot where you can spray the belt while its moving and only spray the belt. If the belt stops squeaking its just a squeaky belt. If it keeps squeaking then you may have one of your pulleys going bad.

Sometimes pulleys will squeak too if they are just not very lubricated. If the belt dressing works you are good to go, if it doesn't work, go ahead and give the belt area a good spray down avoiding your electrical components. Thanks.

I am experiencing a squeaking noise from infront near the fan belt area. when i accelerate,it gets louder. I discovered that the power steering pump is leaking ,so i topped up the reservoir and it stopped...


i have a similar problem. a squeaking noise, sounds when i start the engine, and when i stop the engine. at times it comes when the engine is running and idle, and it lasts some time like a high pitched whistle. Ive had several mechanics look at it, and it seem to be one of the smaller pulleys that the belts run around. in the 2002 model (petrol) of the crv the belts are not the cam belts, becuase this model has a cam chain (much more robust!). so they all said its nothing to worry about. you can try having your pulley replaced.

I am having problems with the squeaking sound in the front of my taurus the sound is coming from the area near the alternator under it. I am wondering is it a ohc or ohv.


The squealing sound is more than likely the idle pulley seizing and the belt slipping. Replace the pulley and sound should go away.

Squeaking Noise


Hi, the best thing to do first is to check for pulley issues. the pulleys can make the same sound. if the pulleys are fine. it will most certainly be the belt and i would replace it.
