Either your alternator belt need tensioning or your power steering belt needs to be replaced so the pulley can be set back to its 'new belt' position

Have a loud squealing around pulleys after changing water pump can't figure out were its coming from any suggestions


It may be the steering pump pulley or just a loose belt. Worst case would be the pump bearings. Is the steering pump the only thing the belt drives? You could try using Belt Ease, from a auto parts store or I have had luck just rubbing the belt with bar soap, but not while it's running of course. Make sure the belt is tight.

Sqealing


Two things to check. If your car has a harmonic pulley on the crank shaft check that it is not slipping on the rubber insert and squealing. Second point is when there is no need for power steering ie straight ahead or idling there is no load on the pump so it will feel ok but as soon as you move the position of the steering wheel the valves close off and the pump comes under load. If the drive belt only drives the power pump and it broke then I would suspect a problem in the pump. Check that the belt is the correct size for the pulley groove as if it is too small the belt will run on the bottom of the pulley and slip, and squeal.

The power steering is out and I can hear a pulley going bonkers. There is a squealing sound like a belt isn't catching, and also an oscillating sound like a pulley is loose and moving back and forth or...


i am having a similar problem. my power steering pully is loose. im pretty sure i have to replace the pump and the pully however my power steering still works but the belt squeals.check all the pullys they drive the belt or belts. its usually always either the tensioner thats the pully that allows you to remove the drive belt or the power steering pully which sucks the most because you must remove the entire power steering pump to replace the pully and since you have to go through all that trouble you might as well replace the entire power steering pump as well. i am not a mechanic so try and find more information.

A loud squeal evrytime the unit sits for a couple


if you have to spay the belt to get it to stop then the belt is most likly streched or bad. take the belt off and turn all the free spinng pullys alt,power steering,a/c,ect if all spin good with no horible sounds then replace the belt , if any turn hard then this is what the problem is.but im betting it's the belt

I have a high pitched noise which appears to be coming from front right engine compartment (as you are looking at the engine) which sounds kind of like a belt that is squealing. It is intermittent. Just...


Could be several things. WHICH ENGINE?.. 4 cylinder (has three belts, power steering/water pump, alternator & A/C compressor, one tensioner pully A/C compressor), The V6 2.7 (has only one belt, 1 Idler pully and 1 tensioner pully), the V6 3.5 has two belts - A/C/alternator, and power steering - there are two tensioner pullys). Noises can be caused by the belt(s) themselves, pullys, bearings, pully bearings, water pump shaft bearings (or belts/pullys rubbing up against something). Let's not forget that there is also belt(s) behind the Timing Belt cover as well as pullys and bearings associated with the timing system. You could start by removing one accy drive belt at a time (alternator, water pump, compressor, power steering, etc) to see whether or not the noise goes away in each case. If after each case, you discover the noise is still there, it's probably behind the timing belt cover (idler/tensioner pully, water pump shaft bearing, crankshaft bearing, etc.). Good Luck
