Could be one of the pulleys is locked up, causing the belt to slip.

I have a loud squealing noise upon starting the car. the squealing normally lasts about 30-45 seconds. sometimes the noise will appear aftrer pulling off from a stopped position, as well. all belts


Try to tighten the belts a little firm.Sounds like when engine idling no squelling only when about to take off .Some times belts may seem ok on the outside but if you look on inner side you tend to see cracks in the belts .

At start up I have a loud squeal on my 99 Mazda 626. Both belts are new and so is the alternator. The squeal only last for about 10 secs or so and goes away. I have started it in neutral and the squeal is...


Does your car have air conditioning.? Most cars use the A/C compressor to dry the air for the defrost. It will also come on for a short time when you first start the car. With the engine running after the squeel has stopped , try turning the A/C on , If the squeel starts again , then I would think your A/C compressor is seized. Also . are you sure the 2 new belts are tight enough?

AnWhat causes a loud squealing sound when I start the engine and/ or turn on the defroster?


will try to assist you. the loud squealing is most likely a belt thats loose. when you start the engine it squeals for what?30seconds? when you turn the heater on it puts a drag of power from your engine and the engine is trying to compensate. so it [engine] asks for power,puts drain on engine and the loose belt squeals.a loose belt will squeal,simply because it's trying to do it's job.but loosing traction. so it squeals. check for play in belts with engine off of course. grab each belt by hand. if it has more than1/4 inch play or [slack] it needs adjustment,or replacement. hope this helps! thank you for choosing fixya.com we are here for you 24/7 7days per week! good luck!!

okay the squeal is a belt under the hood one of them may be to tight or worn out. also you can try spraying belt cleaner and lubricant. you can pick it up at any autoparts store. DO NOT USE WD40!!!!!!!
and if your car is overheating with a new radiator then you may just need to replace your thermastat.

I need to adjust my fan belts on a Nissan 1991 300ZX Turbo.


Try spraying one item at a time with WD-40 or belt dressing. Try not to worry about doing the belt first and save it for last. Most causes of squeals are galzed belts from being too tight or the pulleys of whatever item, the bearings are going out or were improperly lubed.

This is the cheapest method to truoble shoot the annyoing noises.

Hope this helps!
