Engine Sqeak I have a 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500 (w/ ac) and started to hear a squeaking noise coming from the engine, so i sprayed belt conditioner on my serpentine belt and it made the squeaking noise worse so i took the belt off and turned all the pulleys. All of them turned fine except the camshaft pulley. Is this normal? and if not whats wrong with it and what do i need to do to fix it?

I have a 96 Ford Taurus and when I turn the engine on, and while accelerating there's a squeaking sound.


Well,a drive belt needs to be replaced every 50,000 mi. or so,and a weak tensioner can allow slack which causes sqeak even if the belt is good.
The idler pulley on those is easy to replace also. If the tensioner isn't holding the drive belt very tighly,replace it and the belt.
Auto Zone will let you put down a deposit and borrow a tool to work the tensioner so the belt can be easily removed. don-ohio

I get a clunking noise from the front of my truck when I cold start it and only for a few min as is warms up then it goes away. This started in cold weather 35-60F. I have a chevy silverado 2001 1500...


this engine has forged pistons whitch expand more than hyper-u-tec-tic pistons when heated . this is normal for this engine . my brother has a chevy silverado 2001 1500 4.8Lwith 650,000 kms and he said his made that noise when it was brand new and the dealer said this is normal. the truck still runs like new with lots of power and it still makes that noise before it reaches operating temp then goes away.My brother uses lucas oil treatment and it helps quiet the knock a little when cold.

Remove the auxillary drive belts and run the engine without them .If the noise is gone then its something driven by the auxillary belts.if not then check timing belt runners [if fitted]But check oil -water levels first

I can't stop the squeak on my 8.1l chevy 2500hd.


There is a pulley out of alignment. Only 1/8th inch out will cause a serpentine to sqeak.

2003 Volkswagen Jetta squeaking noise!


As you probably know squeaking could be alot of things, but the most common noise, that would not effect performance, would be serpentine belts. You can buy a can of belt dressing at Autozone, that you spray on the inside, the contact side, of the belt. If it is the belt, this should help. If it's been a long time since replaced you may want to replace belt. Alot of those belts will break after being worn out, but the better quality belts may not break, but they will make a horrendous squealing noise. If it's not the belt, you'd have to have someone look at it to troubleshoot. Good luck.
