2003 Monte Carlo has a high pitched squeal when you accelerate it's not a belt, the noise comes from the front of motor area


My best guess if not a belt would be a bearing, water pump, alternator, power stearing pump, AC compressor all can make that noise.

When started, the engine has a high pitch squealing noise. This noise may or may not stop with the warming of the engine. I have already replaced the belt, belt tensioner, and had the alternator tested. ...


Hi,
My first thought would be that a bearing on a rotating element is going out. Since you stated you checked the alternator and replaced the tensioner, I would next, focus on possibility of water pump, power steering pump or A/C compressor. Maybe you can isolate the sound to determine which.
I would even go so far as to dowse them with WD40 at the pulley bearing locations, one at a time.
Hope this helps... Good luck!

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

Seems like a drive belt problem, to confirm pour some water on belts the noise should go away or may get louder for a second. If either happens the belt or belts needs to be adjusted or replaced. Good Luck, If I fixed ya, leave me a FIX-YA comment thanks
