My Serpentine belt is squealing above idle

My Serpentine belt in my 1994 Plymouth Grand Voyager squeals everytime I press the accelerator. I have the 3.3 L Engine. I have changed the belt, changed the idler pulley for the tensioner, and I have used belt dressing to no avail. I also have replaced the compressor. Can Anyone help me? I am tired of being the scream machine.

First thing you need to do is get a new belt that belt dressing just destroyed that belt that stuff is no good then get a new belt tensioner clean all the pullys with some brake clean then install the belt tensioner and belt if its still sqealing there maybe a pully making the noise to check that when you have the belt off spin them by hand and listen to them and feel for any play in the bearings

A good practice is to change or replace the spring load tensioner while replacing the belt. also check if there is no grease or oil applied accidentally on the serpentine belt

Loose serpentine belt, how I replace it.


You need to replace some other part like the automatic tensioner. What is the car doing? There is a factory repair for belt slip and squeal.

2002 Mercury Cougar Squeal


Just for testing, a few seconds, will the vehicle start and run w/o the belt? Have a helper work the throttle, is the sound gone? If problem not the belt, check the belt driven accessory. Sometimes you can use a long metal rod of some kind, with belt on, one end of the rod touches accessory housing, the other end goes on that bone behind your ear, helps to magnify the sound. I guess you could use a mechanics stethoscope to do the same thing. Have helper work the throttle while you listen to each. Don't get tool or anything caught in belt. This is a serpentine belt, I haven't looked?
Maybe an accessory trying to freeze up or bad bearing? I can't think of anything else at the moment?

There is a squeaking sound when the steering wheel is turned


are you holding it at the end of the power steering travel? this can cause the squeal, also is the belt more than 30,000 miles old? is it an OEM belt.

Squeal under hood 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix GT (3.8 L)


I would start with a belt. While removing it feel how much tension the tensioner has on it, on the 3800 egnine they have a stiff tensioner(sorry I don't have any specs for how much) After you get the belt off you can look at all of the pulleys and spin them to see if the bind or look for stuff stuck in the grooves on the pulleys.
It sounds to me like the belt is streched. I would not recommend one of those gator back belts, they seem to make more noise sooner than a good v notch belt. But thats just my opinion!

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.
