SOURCE: loud squealing noise

Probably a belt getting loose or worn. If alternator has a separate one than the rest, try just tightening it up. My guess is that it's probably all one belt with a tensioner pulley, which means you can't tighten, (spring tension already applied by tensioner) you have to change the belt, to get rid of noise, and if noise comes back in short time, think about changing tensioner.

SOURCE: Squealing noise

After your vehicle heats up, spray your belt with water. If it squeels, it's a belt. If not, it'll be a tensioner or pulley.

check your belt tension. Tighten it up and the noise should go away. if not, replace the belt and tension it accordingly.

SOURCE: while driving a squealing noise comes from the

you need to check the front brake pads to see if the warning tab is touching the rotor ,this will squeal if the pads get worn out before it goes metal to metal, and if that is ok the only thing i would think of is the wheel bearing,

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.

I have a loud squealing noise upon starting the car. the squealing normally lasts about 30-45 seconds. sometimes the noise will appear aftrer pulling off from a stopped position, as well. all belts


Try to tighten the belts a little firm.Sounds like when engine idling no squelling only when about to take off .Some times belts may seem ok on the outside but if you look on inner side you tend to see cracks in the belts .

Can't find the source of the squeal


Year make and model ??
The belt could be glazed and slipping even if it is tight.
You could have a weak belt tensioner too.
The noise when the ac or heat is turned on can be the extra load from the ac compressor or the alternator. The compressor cycles on and off especially in defrost mode.
The load from the alternator is the first noise of the day. As the belt warms up it becomes better at handling the load of the accessories.
Even tho the belt looks fine, you may have to replace it to get rid of the noise.

My son has a 2002 GMC Sonoma crew cab that is making a grinding noise when making turns, both left and right. This may be an unrelated problem but the tires are also squealing when taking off from a stop,...


the grinding noise sounds like the axle shaft joints are no good and need replacing.also the wheel bearings could be so bad that they are causing this problem.i have seen where badly worn out brakes have made a grinding noise on turns.the tire squealing i don`t think is related to the grinding noise.check out the other things just in case it is changing the tire angle which could cause squealing.

My 99 accord's wheel squeals while driving but stops as soon as i press the brakes. Sometimes the noise will stop after driving a few miles but other times it wont make the noise at all.


have your brake pads checked out, often they are so close to finnished that they make a noise when not applied, as soon as you apply them they press on the last bit of padding left and the noise goes away.

My 92 4 runner makes a squealing noise when I turn. It only makes the noise when I start to accelerate in the beginning of turning. If I slow down on the gas the noise stops alot quicker, then if I keep on...


Most likely need to replace you accessory drive belt. However, before you do that make sure the tensioner is bringing adequate pressure to bear on the belt. The squealing is probably the side of the belt slipping in the metal drive pulleys.

Noise from engine


Check your belt. Belts will whine when they're worn, cracked or glazed. I hope this was helpful. It's not normal. Take care and God bless.
