SOURCE: my power steering belt squeals when i start

Are you sure you are looking at the belt that is squealing? Usually the alternator belt squeals when first starting engine, PS belt will squeal when turning the steering wheel all the way right or left. It the tensioner is maxed out, either the belt is stretched, worn out, or way overtightened.

SOURCE: My 2004 Nissan Frontier will not stop squealing!!

how many belts are on your engine?
And never,never use belt dressing or any spray on a rubber belt!
If you have more than 1 serp belt that drives every thing,remove the power steering belt to verify its that belt.Take a wire brush and clean the grooves on the pulleys and get that belt dressing of too,install new belt and noise will be gone.

Squeal accelerating

I believe you have a couple problems. The squeal could be an idler pulley, tensioner, alt or something else on the front of the motor. The oil issue is something else I believe. Keep an eye on you oil level.

My VUE is an AWD with 3.5 liter engine. I have a slight squeal that only happens at between 2100 - 2300 rpms. It sounds like a pulley or belt, but happens at only those rpms in every gear while under...

You can buy 'belt dressing' @ the auto parts store. Spray it on each belt pulley and check for the noise. You can 'load' the engine by putting into gear, holding the brake w/the left foot and applying the throttle - DO THIS IN A SAFE LOCATION WITH NOTHING IN FRONT OF THE CAR.

Once you discover WHICH belt is squealing it likely needs adjusted or replaced.

Belts and pulley replaced on chrysler LHS, and now it squeals really bad

Try some belt dressing. If that doesn't work, the tensioner pulley may not have been installed properly. Return for warrant service.

Squealing noise (LOUD)

You need to check the pulley alignment of all the pulleys, they should all be in a perfectly straight line, otherwise the belt will squeal

1994 Chevy Suburban 5.7L V8 is making loud squealing/screeching noises when accelerating, only when foot on gas pedal, increasing with speed, and stopping before 20 mph. Initially the sound made me think...

This problem sounds more like your serpentine belt is loose or has become glazed. When you accelerate, the belt can't keep up with the torque of the flywheel pulley due to the drag of the accessories, resulting in a squealing and/or chirping of the belt as it slips on the pulley. This is amplified during turns due to the extra drag of a laboring power steering pump. Try going to your auto-parts store and picking up a bottle of belt dressing, about a buck a bottle. Apply this to your belt according to the instructions on the bottle. This should help your belt regain its "stickiness" if it is indeed glazed. If this doesn't solve your problem, a new belt may be in order. Hope this helps out. If the problem persists after a new belt, reply to this answer and we can dig a little deeper. Have a great day!

Loud chirping noise when acceleration pedal is

There is a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) for this problem:

Engine - Accessory Drive Belt Noise Diagnostics/Tool
08-06-01-008 03/27/2008
This particular vehicle had an issue with pulley alignment, particularly the power steering pulley. Take a look at the shaft the pulley is pressed onto. If the end of the shaft isnt flush with the pulley, it is out of line and will cause a squeal.

It is recommended that you discuss this TSB with your dealer (not local mechanic).

I hope this helps.

Car makes a high-pitched squealing noise only while it is in lowest gear then stops once it gets up to 2nd or 3rd gear.

Check the belts for slippage and wear. If the tension is not correct, the belts will slip and create a "squealing" noise...moreso at higher rpms or on acceleration as you mentioned....That is the most common cause for a "squeel". I would check that first.
Good luck...i hope this helps fixya up.

My Serpentine belt is squealing above idle

first thing you need to do is get a new belt that belt dressing just destroyed that belt that stuff is no good then get a new belt tensioner clean all the pullys with some brake clean then install the belt tensioner and belt if its still sqealing there maybe a pully making the noise to check that when you have the belt off spin them by hand and listen to them and feel for any play in the bearings

When accelerating our van it starts to squeal very loud now.

Have your fan and other belts checked/replaced!
Rarely but sometimes a can of belt dressing will stop the squeal if the belt's just a little to dry!
Check your oil!
Check your trans and other fluids if you don't think it's a belt!

Squealing noise under the hood

No, The fan clutch will not make a Noise it will just not catch the Fan to Cool. It is the Belt. Make sure that it is Tight. You may have a Bad Belt Tensioner if it is not.
