Question about 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

1 Answer

My 1994 Ciera 2.2 liter engine is squeeling from the serpantine belt. I replaced the belt last fall and this took =care of the squeeling. Now the squeeling is back, assuming the belt has streched a little bit, is there a way to increase the tension on the tensioner?

No the likely problem is the tensioner itself

Squeeling after replacing all belts and the tensioner pulley?


Still sounds like the belts, not much will cause that type of noise. You can completely remove all belts and start engine to see if noise is still there, no harm to engine to run it for a minute or two with no belts. You will know for sure then.

Will check engine light turn on if serpantine belt needs replacing?


No. The service engine soon light will come on for other reasons than a cracked belt that is largely still intact and turning the accessory pulleys.

Not always. You should check your belt tensioner though to ensure the bearings arent going out or the tensioner isn't bad. Let me know what you find. ngcoonass@yahoo.com and I will help out more if needed.

Squeels at start for first two seconds


The squeeling could be from a worn belt or if oil drips on belt overnight. Replace the belt first to see if that fixes it.Good luck.
