Belt squeal is the result of a badly adjusted or failing belt. If it also drives the power steering pump then the problem when it squeals will be from the driver holding it on full lock and not backing of a bit

SOURCE: Belt squealing when first started

The squeal when first started is most likely coming from the alternator belt. You need to have the tension of the belt checked to make sure it is properly adjusted. If you had a shop due it have , have them recheck it. Or stop by a local shop and they shouldnt charge you to check it. But its all in how you ask, if you go in and tell them your problem most likely they will try to get you for a fee to diagnose it.Just ask to have them check the belts and make sure there tight.If its ok, has anyone tried to fix your sqeul by spraying anything on it? if so your belt could be slipping from the lube they used. there is one more thing you can try, providing all the pullys/ tensioner pully if equiped are straight. If it is a serpantine belt(flat/multiple grooves) not A v-belt
when the engine is off,you take a tablespoon or so of corn starch, yes the stuff in the yellow box in the kitchen, and put it on the inside oif the belt. Its acts like a dry lube. I learned this trick at the GM dealership, from a factory bu;lliton. good luck

SOURCE: loud squealing from power steering pump - do I need new PS pump?

Hi Norman,

Sounds like the adjustment may not be correct on the power steering belt, with the tension not being enough, after you replaced the belt ?

Try giving it a little more tension, and go from there.

Hope I have been of help.

Good Luck !

John.

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.

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.

Belt squeals so replaced the belt and still does it.sprayed wd 40 on it and stopped for about 10 sec. and come back


do not spray any lubricant or cleaner on belts. they are rubber made.
you can use a dry soap if you can remove belt.

on 4.0 engines it can be tightened a bit. there is a bolt close to steering pump. very long bolt. it is located diagonally and it tightens the belt.

The belt in my 01 Dodge Dakota squeals badly. Started when I had my power steering pump replaced. I tried changing the belt and the tensioner, but still squeals. Is it possible the pulley on the power...


excess mechanical drag from the pump can cause the belt to slip and squeal, but before focusing on the pump I'd check the condition, tension and alignment of the belt. I might even try cleaning all the pulleys with an aerosol brake cleaner and install a new belt, particularly if the current one has more than 50,000 miles on it. It might be that the squeal is coming from or caused by a different belt-driven accessory.
A more typical noise from a power-steering pump is a high-pitched whine, not a squeal. Usually, if the steering wheel is stationary, meaning that the steering rack is not "asking" for assistance from the high-pressure fluid from the pump, there's little or no noise

Of course any belts that are missing should be replaced. If the engine overheated you probably do need to replace the thermostat as the temper has been changed.

Loud squealing from power steering pump - do I need new PS pump?


Hi! The pulley could be worn or the belt is not properly adjusted.Causing the belt not to grip the pulley but slide on it,creating a friction.

Squealing power steering. It is hard to turn car without squealing.


Is the power steering fluid at the proper level?

Is the belt worn or loose? Follow hoses from power steering to the pump which is connected to the belt. Google worn belts or belt tension for details.
