Chirping birds and screaching sound

I have a 2002 Chevy van 7 seater passenger van that has been great. However, just recently, it started making chirping, screaching type sounds as I take my foot off the brake or when I break. Sometimes it happens as I turn a corner and then stops. My husband checked the brakes and had another mechanic check them. They are fine. Does anyone know why this is happening or what it is? My computer light came on but it is about a thermostat not anything else. We replaced that.PLEASE HELP as it sounds like something terrible is wrong and I hate the loud bird type chirping.Thanks.RNS1978

Check to be sure there is the correct amount of preload on the front wheel bearings. Too loose or too tight will give you strange noises. Also, you may have a calibur hanging up or retracting too slowly. It causes the brake pad to stay in "Light" contact with the rotor and cause noises too. This could be an intermitten problem.

Good Luck

My 2005 trailblazer makes a bird chirping noise. Exactly like birds. My mechanic replaced the belt but it is still making the noise.


If is a serpentine belt, take it out and check the belt tensioner. some of them have a screw that allows for tightening/loosing the belt. Sometimes it looses some bearings and it could chirp.

well the chirp sounds like a belt problem but the light click is usualy the lifters try using a higher grade of gas,and hope its not a berring going in the water pump.

Is it possible to put a 3 seater bench in second row


Yes...you can. I did this in my 05 Grand Caravan. We found ours at a local junk yard. It cost us 200 and even matched pretty well with the current benches. Just call around to your area junk/salvage people.
