probably the belt making noise , very common .

WHen a belt gets old it gets dry and cracks start to appear , the non-ribbed side of the belt may get dry & glazed also make noise . common problema are also tensioners that make the belt get out of line with the rest of the pulleys , look carefully because just a little miss-alignment can cause a belt to slip on the smooth side of pulleys and make noise . Misting water onto the belt may also help you determine what is making noise.

Good Luck and Watch your Fingers !!!!

SOURCE: a belt snapped, leaked antifreeze and no power steering

If it was the timing belt, the car would have quit right then and there.
It's the belt that drives the fan, water pump and power steering.
Probably what they call the serpintine belt.

SOURCE: change serpentine belt and tension pulley and idle pulley and

could be the alternator, water pump
take the belt and spin all the pulleys and listen for noise and make sure they turn smoothly
another trick is to take a can of wd40 or equivalent and spray the bearings 1 at a time till the noise goes away or quiets down

Possibly dirt in the grooves of the belt. remove the belt and clean the grooves with a wire brush. If you get a lot of dirt and powder out of it clean it good and reinstall. Might work. did for mem on my 03 Sebring.

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.

It makes a chirping noise all the time


Chipping can be caused from a bad bearing that needs to be replaced or lubricated. It could be inside the alternator. power steering pump, idler pulley, Whater pump, AC compressor, and so on.
Use a long handle such as a broom stick and place the stick to each item that is belt driven. Place it at a secure place such as the housing so the stick does not get near the belt. As the engine is running place your ear at the other end of the stick. This works as a Stethoscope same as a doctor uses. The chirpping will be hear the loudest at one of the belt drive accessories during your testing

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee squeaking and power steering


It very well could be the pawer steering pump. But to isolate the squeking sound, take that can of wd-40 and find the idler pully and tensior pully. Spray the bearing area of both pulleys. If your bearing in those pulleys are going bad then it will make that noise. If the wd-40 quits the noise at one of those tow pulleys then you know which one to replace. If its does not, then start looking to replace the powersteering pump. I take it you have checked the power steering fluid levels and they are ok?? Also, you stated that the noise started after you bought the alternator, then try a new alternator. It might of just been a faulty alternator. Happens all the time. One last inexpensive tip is replacing all belts with new. Belts get glazed over and dirty and cause noise too. One last question. Did you make sure the belts were tight enough? Just a little variance in the belt tension can make the difference.
