My Echo makes a squealing noise randomly when driving & airconditioner is turned off?


Your serpentine belts tension is loose or the belt is going hard. Check the tension on the tensioner pulley and condition of belt.
The belt is slipping on your accessory pulleys when a load is placed on them such as power steering, alternator and clutch fan.

1991 ACURA LEGEND MAKES SQUEALING NOISE WHILE DRIVING


If you think the noise is coming from the engine, you could take each belt off one at a time and run the engine to see if the noise stops.

Fan belt is making noise.


If your fan belt is squealing and changes pitch when you accelerate or let off the gas or squeals at first then tapers off, then it is slipping. If it is slipping you could replace the belt (probably a good idea considering the age of the car), or as a temporary fix you can spray the belt with belt dressing. Belt dressing is only a few bucks at any local auto parts store and comes in a spray can. Follow directions on the can.

If it is a different type of noise like a grinding or rattling noise, it could actually be a pulley or any of the devices the belt is used to drive, these can include power steering, AC compressor, idler pulley or water pump to name a few.

My best advice is to replace the belt, and toss the old one in the trunk as an emergency spare. The belt should cost under $20.00 and is money well spent as it is cheaper then being stranded and needing to be towed.

Squealing noise when a/c is turned on, then noise stops. Is this an a/c fan belt or something else? Would like to know what to expect when I go to auto mechanic.


Sounds like you might have a loose are worn fan belt. Specially if this is a V belt. With the hood up have someone turn the air conditioner on and watched the compressor clutch if it stops turning you might have a bad compressor. If it keeps turning in the squealing just goes away, you might just have a loose belt. Good luck.

1992 bmw 318i making a squealing noise on startup when cool. replaced both belts, no effect. Noise disappears when belt going from alternator to the fan clutch is removed. Not sure if it's the bearings in...


You may need bearings in the alternator but i would first try tightening the belt,if that cures the problem you are done.If it does not and a grinding noise starts,then put bearings in the alternator.

Engine makes a squealing noise when running. No


is it comming from the serp belt?look when the car is off to see if the belt looks brown and shiny and or cracked,,it could be the belt is loose or just old and worn and slipping on the pulleys,,may be your noise,or if you mean squealing while driving it could be the brake pads are low and the low indicator squealers are hitting the rotors to let you know the pads are low and need replacement

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.

Unexplained squealing noise.


That usually means that the belt is loose. If it is loose it will make noise on start up and go away, but while running normal, if u make the pullys work more such as A/C, or something, you'll cause it to slip again, thus making it squeal and make noise. Another idea is if you only have one belt (a serp. belt) then if the tensioner, which is not adjustable by hand, is going bad could maybe cause this noise if the belt is slipping from not enough tension. An experienced tech would be able to tell if a tensioner is bad just by pulling on a belt and seeing what tension the belt has at the time. Hope this helps, good luck
