SOURCE: 94 nissan maxima se, Squeeling loud when car is started.

More than likely yes it is the belt. If the belt isn't cracked, (which can be viewed by looking at the ribbed side) I would suggest some belt condtioner. If any foreign material gets on the belt (like oil) it could cause it to squeal. As long as the belt its self isn't damaged, It won't hurt anything. However this isn't a constant noise correct? Just occational? If its occational than for sure get some belt dressing/condtioner. Avaliable at Wal-mart or any autozone ect. for around 5 bucks. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Brakes are making loud grinding noise when slowing down to stop or on an incline

Ok, it could be a few things, 1. bad break caliper. 2. if you have ceramic breaks, it could be a cracked brake pad, and if they are not ceramic they can still be cracked. 3. if you drive a lot then it could be that you need new breaks again.. 4. also have your back breaks checked along with the front ones..

SOURCE: Squealing fan belt.

New belts tend to stretch after a week or two.Simply retighten the belt now that it has settled in & it will be fine.Was it the alternator belt?That is the most common one to sqeal after replacement.Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: 2004 nissan maxima...can hear the abs pump while

hi from uk the only thing i would be concerned about at this moment is the grinding when brakes applied ? this sounds very much like your brake pads are very low and most likely worne to the point of damage(grinding metal to rotor contact) is the sound you hear also the abs will sense this and due to unbalance of braking to each wheel abs will operate however i would have thought your car may have low pads warning indicator light system fitted but may not ? may i suggest considering age and possible high milage of your car ? if you have not had pads inspected recently? you do so asap b4 you drive any distance especially at speed ?

alternator/air comp. belt slipping.look for loose belt,worn cracked belt and also these are known for cracking tensioner pulley mounting bracket and causing tension loss on belt.without a lift would be pain and ultimately you wouldnt really save much trying todo yourself.

Does your car have air conditioning.? Most cars use the A/C compressor to dry the air for the defrost. It will also come on for a short time when you first start the car. With the engine running after the squeel has stopped , try turning the A/C on , If the squeel starts again , then I would think your A/C compressor is seized. Also . are you sure the 2 new belts are tight enough?

2000 Mitsubishi Galant 4 cyl ES underhood squeal on right side


Be gentle with my rating. I am a long ways away. It sounds like a fan belt. You should pop the hood next time and see how it sounds when you have the squeeling going on. Fan belts will squeel until the get warmed up and then stop because the heat makes them grab the way they are ment too. Let me know, Raz

Hello,
I can't tell exactly what it is since I cannot hear it, but in most cases it's a belt. Check that first, or have a friend help you - one of you can start the car and the other one can look under a hood to search for the squeeling part.
