My car makes a loud squealing sound when i start it


Mary,

This type of problem is best checked by a trusted mechanic. I doubt you'd hear squealing noises from the crankshaft or harmonic balancer; but it is likely to be heard from a belt tensioner pulley, water pump (or other belt-driven devices under the hood - such as the alternator, power steering pump, etc.). A loose or slipping belt can also cause this noise.

Spraying WD-40 on the source of the squeal may quiet the sound - but not solve the problem that is causing it. By simply masking the problem with WD-40 instead of fixing it - you run the risk of the squealing part failing catastrophically - probably at the least desirable place and time.

For your own safety and convenience, have this problem checked and repaired properly.

Good luck!

WHAT IS THE LIKELY CAUSED OF A LOUD SQUEALING NOISE COMING FROM THE ALTERNATOR SERPENTINE DRIVE BELT SYSTEM ? IS IT THE ALTERNATOR OR SERPENTINE BELT?


serpentine belt is getting old and hard and the cold weather was causing it to slip
check belt condition ( small cracks across the grooves = scrap and get a new one) and check tension

Serpentine belt problems


If the belt is squealing, I would take it back to the mechanic.
Could be a pulley not aligned with the others, or a bearing problem, or the belt is not installed correctly.

What makes the fan belts squeal?


New belts need to be readjusted as they stretch unless you have a spring loaded belt tensioner.

When I start up landcruiser, the belts squeals for a moment then it stops. but you can still here the belts movments. Is there anyway to fix the squeal and belt noise. Is there a way to calm down engine...


either tighten or change the belt if it looks damaged. a burnt bearing could be at fault, with the old belt on, mix some liquid soap with water, keep your face away or wear goggles, and pour the mix onto the belt at the pulleys like the alternator one, and you will find out that it stops squealing and you have found the source of the sound. fix whatever is broken and you won't have to raise you radio as much when you drive.
Enjoy !

When starting our 2005 Toyota Sienna with the air conditioner on the belts squeal, how do I fix this problem? How difficult is it to change the belt?


There should be an idler pulley nearby to your aircon compressor, with an adjusting bolt to tighten your belt. If the belt is tight and still squeals, there are allsorts of weird and wonderfull things that are applied to them to stop squealing. Vaseline won't hurt the rubber but it will stop the squealing...hope this helps.

1997 dodge avenger 2.0, belt squealing


Hi

The Power Steering Belt tension requires adjustment, to give it more tension, to cure the slipping, resulting in the squealing, or perhaps renewal, due to cracking or excessive wear.

Your Power steering Belt, belt is your primary problem.

Good Luck !

A FixYa Would Be Nice, Thank´s......John.

My dodge dakota 1987 squeals at 50 miles an hour


I'll BET you have window visors or rain guards!
Look at the bottom of them as you drive air will go between the door and the guards and make a very nice squealing noise.

Squealing noise in 2002 Nissan Sentra


Seems like a drive belt problem, to confirm pour some water on belts the noise should go away or may get louder for a second. If either happens the belt or belts needs to be adjusted or replaced. Good Luck, If I fixed ya, leave me a FIX-YA comment thanks

Belt Squealing on 2004 Chrysler Pacifica


I would try replacing the belt first because it is a cheaper fix. Are you certain it is the belt? Have a mechanic check your alternator. It could be that actually making the noise. I had a vehicle that made noises and it turned out to be a water pump going bad. I hate car problems!
