Replaced all 3 belts Kia Sorento 2005. Get squieling noise and was not before i changed them. Affraid to tighten tensioner anymore then I already have. Put some belt conditioner on and that didn't...


you have to clean all the junk you put on the belt and retighten in order to stop the squeel because they are to loose or to tight but its usally to loose or the idler pulleys the bearings are not good or you didnt tighten them in the right place the tensioners pulleies if they are not seated properly they run crooked and the belt is not straight loosen them all and check pulleys if they turn free with out noise and check your bottom belt this is usally the worst one because you have to tighten underneath the truck

85 chevy celebrity. replaced alternator. that one squealed 2. got another. still hear a squeel. does not squeel when belt is off.


ALTERNATOR BELT NEED ADJUSTING AND REPLACING IT GLAZED. WHEN DRIVE BELT GET GLAZED SHINY CAUSE IT TO SLIP AND SQUEAL.REPLACE ALTERNATOR DRIVE BELT. AND ADJUST IT DRIVE BELT TENSION BY TIGHTEN THE UNTIL YOU CAN PRESS DOWN ON THE BELT IN THE LONGEST RUN. YOU NEED TO PRESS DOWN BELT AND GET A 1/4 TO 1/2 INCH DEFLECTION IN BELT.THE BELT CANT BE TOO TIGHT WHERE WHEN YOU PRESS DOWN AT IT WONT GIVE IN NONE TOO TIGHT, WILL CAUSE PREMATURE ALTERNATOR BEARING FAILURE IF DRIVE BELT TOO TIGHT.

Belt tightening on '98 tercel


There is no adjustment on newer cars they use a spring loaded tensioner wheel that keeps constant tension on the belt. When the belt starts squealing on cars as the electrical accessories are turned on the belt must be replaced it has worn out and is slipping.

Just got alternater replaced a couple of months ago and its starting to squeel again like last time and the battery light keeps flickering on and off


The alternator drive belt is loose or worn out. If the alternator is driven off a serpentine belt then replace the belt. Inspect the serpentine belt tensioner and replace if necessary. On an 18 year old car it is more than likely defective. If it is driven off a standard drive belt then adjust the alternator to tighten the belt. Inspect the belt for fraying and or cracks and replace if you see any.

I have a squeal and we changed the alternater belt and it still squeals. we have also tightened the alternater bracket. can you tell me what else it might be. thanks


My friend;
Try this;
  1. Check the belt pulley may have loose bolts (Nuts), etc.
  2. Check the three belts, them selves for deteriorations, tears, glazing {like glass shapes}, etc.
  3. If your car has a timing belt instead of timing chain, normally it's either inside the front of the engine or the out side under some type of cover.
  4. Could be also, one of the pulleys hub bearings.
  5. Check & make sure none of the moving fans' blades touching the fan frames.

Try it, & PLZ; let me know if I add any benefits to you.
I hope I add some thing valuable to you.
Regards;

This SOUNDS as if (1.) A BELT is TOO LOOSE or (2.) you have BEARINGS that are FAILING in One of the PULLEYS the CHECK for this is as Fallows
With ALL BELTS REMOVED you Need to SPIN ALL Pulleys and LISTEN for ABNORMAL NOISE such as A Humming Sound the Pulley with the ABNORMAL SOUND when SPUN WILL BE The Problem,

Squeeling belts on my 1994 dodge caravan


Not always. You should check your belt tensioner though to ensure the bearings arent going out or the tensioner isn't bad. Let me know what you find. ngcoonass@yahoo.com and I will help out more if needed.

New pump locked up


Never heard of priming a steering pump. I would suggest replacement. That is why they have warranties. Not every rebuilt is perfect. Rebuilt vs. remanufactured.: rebuilt is just that, rebuilt. /Remanufactured is the unit is built using OEM parts and brought back to new specs.
Anyway, do not overtighten the belt. Leave slightly loose. If it squeels, tighten slightly untill squeeling stops. Overtightening will kill the bearings.

Good luck and hope this helps.
