It is probably related to your starter motor. I am just about to replace mine (2004 mdx) with a rebuilt and expect that will solve the problem.

If you overtighten the serpentine belt, you will destroy your power steering pump, so be careful.

How do I asjust the serpentine belt on a 2005 ford freestar?


It should not require any adjustment. the right tension is provided by the idler pully. If you want to release the tension for serpentine removal or examination release the tension on the idler pulley in the rear of the motor, spin the nut in the center like you were tightening, and the pressure will be released from the serpentine belt. Reversely, the appropriate tension will be given using the same way when the strap is reinstalled.

I have a 2004 nissan i replaced the serpentine belt and now when you start it, it squels for a second.


your belt tensioner (sp) might be loose you can also use belt dressing. the squel is from the belt sliding on a pulley trying to catch up with the speed of the pulley

Or use a long sturdy flatheat screwdriver to pry it out to loosen the tension. Tighten it, then slip off the belt.

Lod chirping, squeling noise from engine in ford taurus. Belt is


The cam shaft stabilizer for the 2003 to 2005 have been a known issue. They will intermitantly squel till they go completly out.

I took my 2003 and 2005 Turas to a professional mechanic. They where able to verify the cam shaft stabilizer was the issue since the squeling noise was coming from top right side of the engine.

The surpintine (fan, AC) belts are locted on the left side of the engine.

Once I had the cam shaft stabilizer replaced. I never had that squel again.
