Question about 2001 Honda Civic
Hello, my problem is everytime i start my vechile in the morning it makes a loud squeling noise for about two minutes, then throughout the day it squels only when i start my vehicle. When i bought my 96 mx3 for work purposes, it purred and was very quiet. I ended up fixing my waterpump,rad, altenator at dealership service where i bought my car. So what has been happening is in the last two months ive taken it back to them several times due to the loud noise and from 3 other serpenitne belts burning off.. I figured they were tightening them to much.. which could still be the case i havent had a descent answer on why its making the noise from anyone. ive heard it coud be my power steering, belt too tight, a/c compressor, a/c clutch, tensioner gone, engine mount broken, altenator bracket. Im pretty sure its my a/c compressor that is seized, with the year of the car and amount of money ive spent on it already its just not worth another thousand to get my a/c all fixed and running. I just want the noise to go away when i start my car :). Now is there away to get around putting in a dummy pully and taking the ac out, what kind of pully would i need. Also do u know if the 96 mx3 came without ac, if so i could just purchase the belt for that model and route to my altenator and crank...or is this a good idea.. let me know your insight and how to go about fixing my belt noise when i start up thanks
