    have u had the battery tested? a battery with a shorted cell can draw allot of amps and cause the alt to overload, this in turn causes the belt to slip.

I agree. Replace the battery first. It's under the back seat, which will lift up after undoing two screws in the front of the bottom of the seat. Remove negative terminal, remove positive terminal, lift old battery out, put in new one, attach positive terminal, attach negative terminal, reinstall seat, and you're done.

If that's not the issue, you may need to replace the alternator.

Why does my 1991 subaru squeaks then cuts out for a sec.


If it's happening while driving and no brakes applied it's probably a belt causing the noise. There's a product available in most local auto shops that you can use to lubricate the belt. I think the actual name is "stop squeak" but I'm not positive.
If it's squeaking while breaking you may need new breaks or your breaks may be too tight. Another product exists for breaking squeals available in your local auto shop

Does squeaking coming from automoble water pump indicate water pump bearing is bad


If you take the belt off and there is no noticeable in/out, up/down, or side to side movement of pulley and there is no noise when rotating, a new belt may be all you need. Make sure you check ALL of the other belt driven components including idler pulleys and belt tensioner pulley. A worn tensioner can squeak also.

Squeaks loud when turning the wheel mostly to the right. I have checked the power steering fluid, it is at the correct level. Its the kind of squeaking as if it were the tires inside an automotive shop,...


This sounds like the power steering belt is slipping, this will cause a loud squeal, check all the belts and make sure they are good and tight, mostlikly its the power steering belt as the noise only happens when the wheel is turned.

Brand new battery, wants to turn over but keeps losing its charge, the break lights only turn off if you lift the pedal after u use it, alternater belt squeaks a little. wat could cause this when the...


Well, if the alternator belt squeaks a little, it cannot be actually charging properly, resolve that...

First steps would be to fully charge the battery and measure the voltage. Turn of vehicle Disconnect the negative terminal overnight, for a night or two.

If battery still dead, focus on the battery.
If battery is not dead, put a volt meter between the negative terminal and cable and measure voltage... do not be mislead by interior lights, or clock, pull those fuses, during testing...

Anyways, keep going until you find a drain.

The alternator has diodes that can cause a drain...disconnect for testing purposes...

NEVER run the vehicle with the battery cable dicsonnected.

Belt squeaking causing motor to die on a 2002 ford mustang v-6


I would bet that there is a pully on one of the accessories that is about to stop turning. I would remove the belt and make sure that all of the acc. turn with out to much effort. I.E. altnator the tenstioner, as well as the a/c and idler pullys.

Belt squeaks when AC turns on


Your belt is not tight enough. Are you using the power steering pump to adjust? (right way) or doing something else? Keep tension on the pump and tighten the pivot bolt first.
