Question about 1987 Jaguar XJ6

Loud squealing noise from front end on jaguar xj6 1987

My uncle is a mechanic and said it sounds like the belts are not tight enough. How do we tighten the belt? The battery cannot stay charged at all. We just bought a new one a week ago and already dead after the first day. Thanks for your insight!

SOURCE: replaced brake pads, extreme squeal resulted

Pads will reproduce sound just like a needle on a phonograph. Hard linings will accentuate this. Have the rotors re-surfaced and finished with a non-directional pattern(I make a quick pass with a D/A sander over surfaces while still on the lathe) Generally this will help.

SOURCE: noisy water pump pulley,alternator pulley..timing belt tensioner

I have a 1995 xj6....same problem. I replaced the belts, water pump, and the alternator. Still does it. As I play with the tension on the belt (belt that drives water pump, alternator) it goes away and comes back. If I remove the belt, the metal to metal screech stops. I then, with just the belt, turned the main pulley on the front of the engine, and there was the sound! The main pulley has 2 belts that run on it. Also, 2 pulley tracks. They SHOULD move simultaneously and be super meshed. But the rear one moves on its own under tension until it warms up and I guess, the bushing maybe expands. Now.....how do I fix it??????

SOURCE: 2001 jaguar s-type won't crank battery new and charged. Turn the ignition car won't make a sound

many things will cause no start problems could have faulty ignition switch.use test light see if power going to starter if not check ignition fuse to starter.if power going to starter, more likely starter solenoid or starter faulty.if ignition fuse okay and starter and solenoid okay still no start problem could be in the ignition switch or inhibitor switch faulty.code scan for faulty theft security system which will also cause no start conditions.

Probably should replace the belt. A worn belt will squeal sometimes.'
Another thought is the belt tight enough A belt that is too loose will squeal under stress .

Squealing noise (LOUD)


You need to check the pulley alignment of all the pulleys, they should all be in a perfectly straight line, otherwise the belt will squeal

Toyota Tercel belts are squealing


I have been having the same problem with the alternator belt squealing, most noticeably, when using the heater fan , accelerating, turning the headlights on. I have a 1997 Toyota Tercel CE 1.5L 4cyl with no A/C. I just tightened the belt tight enough that there is no give to the belt and it does not squeal anymore.

I also used a Goodyear Gatorback from Napa belt which seems to be nice and quiet when tight enough.

Loud Squealing noise around belt area


This usually means the belt is loose or needs to be replaced. You can take it to a mechanic or your local auto parts place (auto parts places can usually look at it and tell you if it's loose or needs to be replaced). If there is a grinding sound with the squealing, you should take it to a mechanic (this usually means you have a pulley that is freezing up) if the pulley freezes to long, it will break your belt. Good Luck!

Screeching noise coming from the drive belt is this common


When your drive belt becomes old and stretches so it is no longer tight enough the belt will make a loud squealing noise and will need to be replaced. While the drive belt is off during replacement, you or the mechanic replacing the belt will need to turn each pulley in the system that can be turned by hand to see if any of those are making a metallic noise also. If they make a metallic noise, they are worn out. It is common for a drive belt to wear out and cause this noise.

I have a 1990 jeep YJ replaced the alternator and now there is a loud screeching noise replaced the belt,replaced new bearing in idler pulley still makes a loud screeching noise?


If the belt is not tense enough it will squeal, so make sure it's tight enough. Otherwise you can use a stethoscope or long screwdriver up to your ear to isolate the source of the noise.

Loud squealing sound in my engine


Try removing the belt and turning each pulley by hand. If everything is smooth and free, with the belt still off, drive down the block once and see if the noise is there (this will eliminate all rotating accessories on the front). If you hear the noise, then there is a problem deeper inside. Oil pressure is good? Dont' forget when doing this, you will have no power steering, so be careful.
