When I start my 2004 suzuki forenza sometimes there is a loud squealing noise that will stop if I rev the engine. It doesn't sound like a belt to me sounds more mechanical. It also sometimes makes the...


Squealing noises are more apt to be from belts, not mechanical parts. It doesn't necessarily have to be "a belt" per se, as the noise could, in part, be caused by an idler pulley. Open the hood and try to locate the sound. FYI I have posted the complete 2004 Forenza Service manual on FIXYA. Do a site search with those key words.

Sounds like whining noise when i start up then it disappears, what could it be?


If the noise increases if you rev the engine suspect the serpentine belt. This would be more of a screech than a whine. The noise would be more pronounced on a moist morning. It comes from the belt slipping or being misaligned. Try a GoodYear Gaterback belt as a replacement. It has grooves cut into it to reduce noise. Be sure your tensioner is working correctly. Also, the starter can make a noise if it does not disengage properly.

My ford focus zetec makes a rattleing noise


spraying WD40 on drive belts is not a good option as it can cause slippage it is better to use silicon spray or ordinary soap,rub the soap on the belt when the engine is stopped,as for the squeak it could well be the tensioner replace it first it may be the cheapest to start with.....hope this helps....cheers

Belt sqealing on my 1999 cougar.


Do you know which belt is making this noise? Usually it's the power steering belt, and sometimes it's the alternator belt. The power steering belt will make noise turning the steering wheel when stationary, the alternator belt will slip as you quickly rev the engine by blipping the throttle. In either case tightening the belt to the specified tension will fix the problem.

Golf 2002 mk 4 130 making a strange noise when revs up


If you think it's the timing belt, get it replaced or inspected.

Even though there are other things that might make a noise, the damage you might do by having the timing belt fail while the engine is running are not worth the risk.

Probs with 2001 elantra h/back. Noise from r/side when driving.


Sounds like a bearing packing up. Could be a siezing alternator, which would put enough of a strain on the engine to make it cut out. Does the pitch of the noise increase with speed?
