Hmm, sounds like to me maybe a belt isn't tight enough or you got some anitfreeze on belt and it's slipping. make sure belts are tight, then if that's not working, try spraying some carb cleaner on the belts as the car runs.

New fan belt and the car is making a loud squealing noise


Either the water pump is bad or the power steering pump or the tensioner or maybe the tension on the belt is insufficient. If you have air conditioning, the bearing could be bad in that but that's a bit remote.

Sounds like the power steering pump. Usually water pump will leak from its weep hole if its going out. Look for coolant leakage around bottom of water pump.

My 92 chevy blazer is making a loud squealing noise sounds like my belts but its not that I've replaced the belt and the tensioner what else could it be?


Bearings in Alternator, water pump, power steering pump or even a squeal from Vacuum line, EGR diaphram or similar. Check power steering fluid level.



Now when you replaced the tensioner, did you notice more pulleys that were just "there" and not connected to anything? These are idler pulleys and are helpful in routing the belt. They have bearings too!

Pleae rate my info.

2001 escape squealing noise when engine is under presure


Use a mechanic's stethoscope to locate the culprit sqeal. Have a technician rev the engine, in order to produce the squeal. Lay the stethoscope tip utop the water pump, nearest the armature. Locate squeal in this fashion against the idler pulley(if applicable), the alternator, the air conditioner compressor, power steering pump (if applicable), the cam shafts (if applicable), and finally the crank. This will help isolate the location of the squeal.7_20_2012_9_07_34_pm.jpg

The belt in my 01 Dodge Dakota squeals badly. Started when I had my power steering pump replaced. I tried changing the belt and the tensioner, but still squeals. Is it possible the pulley on the power...


excess mechanical drag from the pump can cause the belt to slip and squeal, but before focusing on the pump I'd check the condition, tension and alignment of the belt. I might even try cleaning all the pulleys with an aerosol brake cleaner and install a new belt, particularly if the current one has more than 50,000 miles on it. It might be that the squeal is coming from or caused by a different belt-driven accessory.
A more typical noise from a power-steering pump is a high-pitched whine, not a squeal. Usually, if the steering wheel is stationary, meaning that the steering rack is not "asking" for assistance from the high-pressure fluid from the pump, there's little or no noise

My car has started to squeal when turning the wheel to the left or the right. It only does this when I turn it hard to either side. I only hear this noise when I am going through a parking lot slow.


Many times a serpentine belt will get hard and glazed. When you are turning it takes more friction to turn the power steering pump and the belt will slip causing a squeal sound.

Check the belt. If it has a lot of little cracks in the ribs, replace it. If it looks good try belt dressing. If it still makes the noise you may have to replace the tensioner that holds the belt tight. Not a big deal to do it only has one bolt that holds it on.

Hope this helps

The power steering pump is normally connected or driven by the engine with a V-belt. A loose belt can cause squealing as soon as the power steering come under load (e.g. steering left or right while stopped).

Check the tension on the V-belt directly connected to the power steering pump. This may need replacement.

Hoep this helps.

Squealing noise


check all pulleys. and also, check the air conditioner compressor. it may need to be serviced. the compressor can make a squealing noise at times if the bearings are bad. make sure the tension is correct as well.
