Have a 2007 ford focus station wagon SE, makes a squealing noise by the pulleys and belt. When running still makes noise and when you turn on A/C the steering get really hard to maneuver.

That look you problems with pulleys,holding the serpentine belt
Get oils spray into it,than you can see.Make the prove one at the time.
Start the motor and see squishing noisy goes away
Even do it in the AC motor pulley
Note:Do not forget change the serpentine belt

Was squeeling at waterpump.replaced with new pump.squeal went away.after it idled abot 20 minutes,it started to chip,then squeal it possible trhe new bering in water pump,was not lubed?,,and went...

Hi,The water pump is assembled with a sealed bearing (lubed from the manufacturer)
Usually you can feel play in the bearing when its worn.
The seal of the water pump will squeal if it runs without water (it needs the coolant to lubricate it )
So is it possible there`s an air lock in the pump area of the coolant system
Other than that the noise could be coming from something else that the same belt drives

I have a 99 Hyundai Elantra and almost every time I turn the car on, it makes this awful squealing noise. The noise sounds to be coming from somewhere in the engine and is really bad when I have my wheel...

hi, the first thing i would have said the fault was was going to be a fan belt/ alternater belt if this is to loose or to tight then this can give you the noise you are hearing, one way of finding out if its a belt making the noise is to go out and get a spray like wd40 and then spray this on the belt then if the noise goes away you then know that its that belt causing you the problem.

If the belts have not been replaced recently then this could be the cause of your problem, spray the belt with a spray or even soapy water then give you car a try if your using soapy water make sure you get the whole belt wet then try the car if the noise is then gone you know the belt is at fault.

If you have power steering then low power steering fluid can cause the power steering pump to squeek so check the level and fill it up to the highest mark then start the car and turn the wheel fully left then fully right then back to the middle then check the level again.
Low steering fluid can cause the noise you hear.

If after doing this its not the belt making the noise and neither the power steering pump then the only thing left that could cause the noise you are having is a dry bearing on one of the pulleys now this could be the alternater pulley or power steering pulley basically any pulley that the belt is running on could be causing you the noise you hear.
To stop the noise you need to buy a spray oil or spray lube then give these pulleys a good spray all around where the bearing is in the middle if the bearing gets to dry it can sieze and cause you loads of problems so go and buy a spray lube and give all of the pulleys a good spray at the front and the back try and get it in towards where the bearing is in the middle this should then stop the noise that you are hearing.

you can spray wd40 on the pulleys but remember this isnt a oil or lube it will just stop the noise for a couple of minutes so you could tell witch pulley is causing you the problem your better of buying a proper spray lube and give all the pulleys a spray where the bearing is in the middle this should then solve any noises you hear.

Make sure you check the engine oil level to rule out the noise coming from the inner workings of the engine ok

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok.

Very noisy squeky fron suspension on jaguar xj8

You might need a lube job or you may need to see if noise is coming from another place such as your engine water pump, brakes, power steering. Look for leaks.

Squeekie noise in the front of my 1989 f250

First, do a normal lube job on all the joints that have fittings. then, spray wd40 on one bushing at a time till you find the noisy one...inspect it may be worn and in need of replacement.

98 taurus- unrelenting squeal near serpentine belt

this is caused by a belt aligment issue, this in turn is caused by a bearing issue in one or more of the pulley's.

Squealing NOISE possibly from fan belt

Belts stretch from new. Try to tighten them again. Hopefully the are not glazed or this may stay with you.
