The geen stuff is most likely anit-freeze and the chirping could be the water pump.

    It also sounds like the ACpulley is where the chirping is coming from tho..would the failing water pump affect the AC compressor?

SOURCE: will ac compressor make noise when freon is low.

yes it can. this may mean the death of the compressor is inevitable, has been filled with the wrong refrigerant/lubricant, or it is low on refrigerant. you have to determine what type of refrigerant is needed, (usually R12 or R134) and use the correct lubricant, if the refrigerant does not have the lubricant already in it. every time a compressor is filled with refrigerant, it also needs th be filled with lubricant, and most, but not all, commercial refrigerants include lubricant. if there is a leak in your system, you can use soapy water in a spray bottle to find the leaky hose/connection.

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

2006 Kia Amanti lock/unlock chirp does not make sound


my guess is the BCM has a problem. There is a separate horn for the "lock chirp" under the hood on the passenger side. you can check for voltage at the horn but remember to hold in the hood ajar button or the test won't be accurate.

PT Criuser has been running hot and now makes a loud chirping sound when cranked up . What causes this ?


my guess is your water pump is not working properly and the loud chirping sound is from the serpentine belt which also runs the water pump, alternator, ac and steering pump. first thing to check is coolant the cooling fan , thermostat , water pump in this order. chirping sound definitely come from the belt but the cause could come from any of the driven part but im zeroing in on the water pump because the car is running hot. old belt could also cause the chirping.

Why is my 2001 Yukon making a chirping noise


I would check the freon level, because that would be the cheapest fix. If it's not the freon, it could be the AC compressor. If the compressor is locked up, it could make a screeching noise. As far as your brakes, I'd use some brake cleaner. Most likely (unless you've driven it tens of thousands of miles already) they are just dirty. Dust collects quickly on brakes. Hope this helps!

Recently bought a 2003 Chevy Malibu. Great car. A couple of days ago it started making a "chirping" sound when in the car and more of a light click when you're outside. It's under the hood but couldn't...


well the chirp sounds like a belt problem but the light click is usualy the lifters try using a higher grade of gas,and hope its not a berring going in the water pump.

Chirpping noise coming from the ABS system,why? Under the hood there is a black ball like cylinder right under the brake fluid resevior, that says something about being "pressurized" that seem to vibrate...


HBB- hydralic brake booster
there was a recall for that - check you local dealer with VIN. I had the same thing, but somehow mine didn't fall under that even though the symptoms were as described by recall - as soon as you touch brake pedal it chirps. some metal baffle inside corroded and it's loosing the pressure
i ended up paying dealership $300 part and labour about 3-4 hrs.

Everytime i accelerate my car it starts making a squeling noise but when i don't accelerate it stops and then i hit the acceleration again and then again noise starts and i can't seem to find the problem!


Are you sure you don't hear anything like a chirping sound when the engine is idling? Have you popped the hood and listened while the engine was idling? Have a friend sit in the driver's seat while you pop the hood, tell them to press the accelerator and then listen for the squeal. I would bet dollars to donuts the problem is the serpentine belt is worn and needs to be replaced.

Audi a4 turbo chirps when car is started


Could be the belt(s).

If not that, could be a loose hose coming from the turbo. If it build boost and the hose is loose, it'll chirp. At least, it would on my turbo bike. Sounded like a balloon releasing air when the neck is pinched.
