Chirping noise when accelerating


If it is a belt noise, sprinkling baby powder on the belt will make the noise go away. Apply liberaly with engine off onto the belt and start the vehicle. The belt may have gotten coolant on it and this will cause the chirp. Also a defective belt tensioner will cause the belt to chirp

Makes a chirping sound when the car is initially started


Have you checked the engine bay for a bird's nest ? LOL
Seriously now, I think it is one or more of your drive belts, just when starting to turn all your engine bits. Have those tightened or replaced as needed and you should be OK.

My 1997 Malibu is holding up very well. Recently, I have noticed a slight chirping noise whenever I idle (especially after starting the car) and when I accelerate to about 45 or 50. It is NOT a whine...


Remove the serpentine belt notating the direction of travel. Start the vehicle long enough to confirm the chirp is either still present or it has stopped.

If the chirp stops manually spin all the pulley by hand to see if you can duplicate the sound. If nbothing else is making noise and the belt is in good shape put the belt back so that it travels in the opposite direction. If the noise persists replace the belt. If the noise goes away see how long it lasts. I have had many that have not returned after rotating the belt.

One other thing you can try is putting a small dab of di-electric grease on the belt, with the engine off of course. Spread the dab around a little with a finger, again with the engine off. Start the vehicle, give it a couple of seconds to let the grease work around the belt. If the noise goes away replace the belt.
