You might need a new belt, or the spring in the belt tensioner is weak and not holding the belt tight to the pulleys, in which case that will need replacing.

Check this items
1 belt idler pulley bearing may be going out
2 belt tension pulley also bearing can be going out
3 accessory belt tension-er can be going out, this gadget keep a high tension on serpentine belt, if spring weaken can cause belt to be loose and slip around the pulley. replacing belt is also good idea if its has high miles on the car..spray any lubrication on any of those will be temporary fix but will come back. hope that help some..good luck!

Signs bad water pump


Most of the time when you hear a squealing sound when you accelerate, mainly when the engine is cold, this means the serpentine belt has stretched or cracked and will need to be replaced. You can check by spraying water on the the belt with the engine running, if the noise goes away, you will need to replace the belt with a good quality belt. Most of the aftermarket belts will make the same or similar noise.

My 2007 Land Rover Freelander makes a whistling sound when vehicle is idling. Sound goes away when accelerating or applying petrol?


it may be a turbocharger if so equipted, lots of turbocharged cars whistle as the unit gets older..only other thing I can think of is something with the exhaust system.. get it looked at by putting the car up on a lift and inspecting it..now some cars also whistle thru the radio ..this is called alternator whine and is usually correected by a filter in the power line of the radio...good luck

Van brakes squeal/whistle even when stopped


Sounds to me like a dry, loose or worn serpentine belt. With the motor idling, lightly spray the serpentine belt as it's spinning with WD-40 or other oil based lubricant (Don't spray near the alternator). If this doesn't work, turn the mortor off and check the tension and for cracks or worn spots. The brakes will not squeal when you are completely still.

Whistling noise under the hood of my Honda civic.


Thhis noise could be a mutitude of issues. If you have some dash board spray, try spraying some on the top pully staying away from the fans and belts. Also position your face away from the expected spray. Water can be used but it not as affective. Then let me know what happened. Later DRRXR :)
