Sqealing noise when driving my 2000 chrysler voyager..not when sitting and running though

Belts slipping when engine rpms increase. Its a drive belt problem which shold go away with a belt replacement. If not, then one of your pulleys has a bad bearing, could be alternator going bad, or waterpump going bad. Belts being the most common culprit.

I have a 99 chrysler 300m that does not start, it sounds like it's out of gas but there is gas in there.. The diagnostic says the cam & the crankshaft sensors are bad but they have been replaced 2...

I am not saying that this is your problem for sure, but have you had your water pump and timing belt replaced lately?? I had the same car and it would crank and crank but would not start. I replaced both my cam and crank sensors also. Eventually I tore into it and found out that my timing belt had broke.

What happened to mine is the water pump (inside the timing cover powered by the timing belt) leaked and the coolant messed up my timing belt and the timing belt finally snapped.

I replaced water pump and timing belt and luckly the car did not have any bent valves. Just to help out I would not try and crank the car anymore until you know for sure that your timing belt is intact. If it is bad and you go in to replace it I would do the water pump while you are in there. It will save you trouble and is a really easy job.

Good luck and I hope the best for you!!

How to adjust a tensioner on a 2001 chrysler voyager

You mean your belt tentioner, serpentine belt, it is not adjustable if your belt is coming off you have a bad tentioner, bad pulley or your power stering pump is leaken and your belt is soaked, if oilly firts found your leak (most common is a hose from reservoir to pump) then replace belt with a cheap belt (had lost of trouble with Life time or hi dollar belts), in the mean time also inspect your tentioner if ani play side ways replace it, also remove idle pulley and spun it close to your ear, if any noise replace it, you may get away with a single item changed, but for trouble free time, replace all items: belt tentioner ($38) idle pulley($25) serpentine belt ($25)

At what mileage am I suppose to change the timing belt on my 2000 Chrysler Sebring Convertible?

Your engine should be a 2.5L V-6, Chrysler recommends timing belt replacement every 60,000, also timing belt drives the water pump, not bad idea to also replace, while in there, this is an interference engine where if timing belt fails, will cause piston to valve damage.Hope this was very helpful.

Describe your 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser timing

Replace the belt at 100k with a new water pump pulley and tensioner. It would not be a bad idea while u r in there to replace the center motor mount. When the mount fails it is a pricey fix not a bad Idea to replace it since you have to remove it to do the belt.

2002 pt cruiser just turned off on the high way

ok i have seen this problem a lot in the last few years with these cars and every time it is the same thing. Check the timing belt, for some reson there was a bad batch of belts that were put on these cars and the belts start to split apart and alow the car to jump timing buy one or two teeth and it will chut the car down. if the belt is in any way torn or fraid then you have one of the bad belts so you will need to replace it and it will solve your problems..
