If the squealing changes in pitch with the speed of the motor it is likely the belt squealing. While the belt is removed, check the tensioner and other pulleys for unusual noise when spinning them by hand.

Squeal coming from front bolt on alternator of my chevy astra van,.


When your alternator was "checked out", that likely was simply, "does it put electricity out?". It may do that, but the bearings may also be failing, and that's more likely where the squealing is coming from.

High pitched engine squeal upon start up, then goes away I'm thinking bad pulley


All though the solutions above are possible, the squeal usually just means one of your belts is getting going bad.

Pop the hood, and turn your belt slightly (the thinner one, not the timing belt) and see if the bottom side is looking 'glazed' or if there are intermittent cracks. You may need a flashlight to determine this.

If the belt is bad, some times you can just loosen the alternator and get the belt off. Some cars require a lot more work. Don't be surprised if the mechanic tries to get you to replace the water pump at the same time when you take the car in to get the belt replaced.

Depending on your financial situation at the time, it may be a good idea to replace the water pump if you have gone 5 years or more on rhe current one.

Hope this helps, all the best to you,
Kerry Hostetter

Weird Squealing Noise under the hood


Couple of thoughts -
1) a belt is slightly loose. not enough tension it could be slipping.
2) when you had the belts replaced, the new ones could have been over-tensioned, which could wear out a pulley bearing.

Squealing Tires?


Is it a tire squeal or brake squeal?If it is brake squeal put high temp synthetic brake lube grease behind the brake pads to reduce/remove the brake squeal.This allows the pads to sit on a bed of grease and will not vibrate at the frequency which produces the squeal.

Rear brakes (driver-side) squeal after replacing rotors and pads


you need to grease the metal clips at the top and bottom of the pads (dont get grease on the rotor or pad though) and also spray some "disc brake quiet" on the back of the pads. it comes in a red can and the spray that comes out is like sticky red paint. do those 2 things and the squeals will be gone.
