1994 Camaro making a noise

I have a shearing noise like metal on metal coming from the belt area but it is not a belt squeal. Could my alternator or water pump be making this noise?

Yes, it could also be the tensioner or idler pully making the noise. I would remove the belt and try to turn each pully by hand and at the same time try to move side to side to locate this.

It is most like a bearing from a pulley and yes
you would have to pin point which one is by listening to it closely but it could be either one of them or a idler or tensioner pulley.

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.

Alternator pulley shears off. Alternator is about 1 year old. The last few times I started the car there was a hard screech noise (like metal clanging) coming from the area around the serpentine belt....


If the bolt was lose and caused the pulley to bend down the power behind the belt was too great and sheared the pulley. Check belt for damage and replace pulley.

Serpentine belt pulley is making a loud noise, the one at the altenator.


If it is a squealing sound when you start up or water splashes in that area you need to adjust the tension or replace the belt. If the noise is actually coming from the pulley it may be the bearings on that alternator being bad.

High squeal from engine area


i would suspect one of the idler pulleys, alternator bearings, water pump baring, you can isolate the location of the sound by using a short piece of hose, hold one end at your ear and with the engine running and the squealing noise evident carefully aim the other end of the hose at the deferment pulley locations, as you get closer to the noise source you will hear a marketable rise in noise you hear through the hose, careful not to get the hose caught up in the belt

1994 dodge caravan was making a noise in the area of the serpentine belt....the belt has since broke..what noise like a gear grinding would be associated with this?


Could be bad bearings in the belt tensioner pulley, bad bearings in the water pump, bad bearings in the alternator (though that would tend to squeal unless they're really trashed) or bad bearings in the power steering pump.  Get a wrench on each one and see which one won't turn.

99 Altima with 190k miles warbling noise


It sounds like your water pump is going it usually vibrates throughout everything if it was your alternator it would show signs with your power the easiest way would to take your belt off remembering the belt route and spin the alternator pulley and the water pump pulley to see if they spin freely without noise

Squealing noise coming from the belts while engine is running


take off your serp-belt and spin your water pump, alternator, idler pully and see what squeaks or feels rough. your water pump bearings may be bad. the only thing you can do is change it. dont forget to change your thermostat and antifreeze. FYI your antifreeze is made with lubricants in it for your water pump bearings.

Loud Sqeaul/screech from engine upon start up


could be your alternator. at start up. alternator usually has a big load because you just use your starter. it would recharge the battery and after a while the battery would be fully charge, the squealing noise will be gone.

check also all the belts if they are individual belts. use some belt dressings to eliminate the noise. sometimes the belt are just worn out and it would also make these noises.

some times you antifreeze or coolant is drop to belts they squeal for ever but easy way to find this or if the belt is the noise
spray some lubrican't like wd- 40 and if noise stop then belt is the problem
