Could be a few things....these are a couple of places to start and things to try.

Your pulleys: spray WD-40 with a straw at the bearing area...like on the alternator. Do one pulley at a time.

Check your belts for glazing....they'll look shiny.

Do one at a time....if you do them all at oncde, you won't know which one got silenced by the spray.

1988 wrangler startup squeel and rough start


Sounds like you have a loose fan belt. May or not be related to the rough start though. Tighten (and, ideally replace) the fan belt.

I have a 2003 Jeep Wrangler that has a high pitch SQUEALING sound when I release the accelerator. Any ideas what's causing it or how to fix it?.


I know i have the same problem, and i also noticed than when i open the Hood the whistle just stops, so i figure out it must be some air cycling in or out osmewhere, I found out my air intake connected to throttle body was misplaced a weird gap was left open allowing air to whistle. u might wanna check there

Heater blower not working


You call it the blower motor, I assume you mean the interior Heater/AC blower motor. When the motor acts as you have described it is usually a problem in the motor itself like a short or rectifier.

Serpentine belt squiks when I start the engine


When the belt starts to squeals, its time to replace it. over time the belt will streach and get glased over. 9 time out of 10 replacing it will stop the squealing...1 percent....you may have to replace your belt tensioner, along with your belt.....
Hope this helped you ??

At startup, amp gage low, lights flicker. belt squealing. then after warm up, gage normal no squeal. alternator bad? Use to do when blower motor on now all start ups.


Thats what it sounds like. That would cause all your problems. You could start the jeep and then take your hot side battery terminal off. If it dies asap, your alternator is bad. Hope this helps. Best of luck.

Tech says serpentine belt needed to be replaced. after changing the belt 2 more times, still cannot use air conditioner or defrost due to loud squealing from belt and it pulls power down from alternator....


Your vibration damper may be going bad!
It sounds like a belt problem....but isnt load sensitive right? Yeah....that's what they sound like. Especially the part where they squeal on start up.

Have the tensioner replaced too just in case.

Loud squealing sound in my engine


Try removing the belt and turning each pulley by hand. If everything is smooth and free, with the belt still off, drive down the block once and see if the noise is there (this will eliminate all rotating accessories on the front). If you hear the noise, then there is a problem deeper inside. Oil pressure is good? Dont' forget when doing this, you will have no power steering, so be careful.
