Not much info to go on, but: Most squeaking is from 3 sources. 1.) Water Pump Bearing. Get some water pump lubricant in there quick to avoid ruining that bearing. (about $3.00) 2.) Idler Belt Tensioner You may be able to lube the back side of this with WD-40, but too much is bad for the serpentine belt. 3.) Power Steering Pump, does not sound like you problem.

Engine starts normal then starts running rough then shuts off, with a squeaking sound


Doesn't sound good Al. Check your engine oil level and make sure it is ok. Could have had a rod bearing seize and fubar the whole engine. Oil puddle under van? Squeaking related but without hearing noise is a tough one. I have heard engines that are on the verge of seizing up to squeak as the bearings seize up and then finally just freeze and seize together. On a lighter note the vans are also prone to having the PCV hose at the back of the intake manifold fall apart and deteriorate. Odd noises have emanated from this sometimes very large vacuum leak that is created. Squeaks, Whistles, etc. If oil was in the hose at time of rupture then oil would have dumped onto the rear exhaust manifold that may have created this smoke from under the hood. You can find more information on this hose at mpvclub. If the engine still cranks over normally but will not start or starts and dies then can rule out the engine damage. The squeaks from this problem are a death call and engine will just not turn over at all.

Sounds like it could possibly be the upper or lower control arm bushings squeaking. There may possibly be a grease fitting on the control arm bushings, if so, have them greased. In fact get a complete grease job from a qualified mechanic. If the squeak stops then you know what is wrong. Then make sure you keep your care properly greased. Usually every time you change your oil or at least twice yearly.

Squeaking sound from shock absorbers


ball joints won't squeak like that; they make a popping noise when they're bad. it is very common for shocks to get water in them and start squeaking, and it's usually a horrible screeching squeak. The only way to get rid of the squeak is to change out the shocks. Hope this helped.

The largest(damper pulley, I think) squeaks and wobbles. I have had it to the Chevy place twice and $600 later it still squeaks.


The only reason that this should squeak is if the harmonic balancer is seperating. You would have to remove the bolt, use a puller to remove the balancer, and using a NEW bolt, put a new balancer on. This is a very rare and unusual problem, and usually a misdiagnosis on where the sound is coming from. More than likely, it's actually a tensioner or idler pully (there's two tensioners on this truck), or the alternator.

Sounds like the blower motor is going out. and need full voltage to run. Are you might have leaves or trash in the duct work causing to motor to drag at low speeds, and making it make the noise that it is making.
