2008 escalade sqeals. Had the belts changed but didn't help. Only happens when moving. Mechanic can't figure it out!

just check first that which belt sqeals, if its the AC belt then your compressor might b hard so replace it and if its the other belt then jst check your pulleys and bearings they might have gone hard.. if u can replace them its the best but if u can not then simply apply some grease on the belt which is sqealing.. thanks

Sqealing engine noise

Find out which belt it is. You woud notice a glazed apperance on the pulley and the belt. It is best to replace it because once the belt is glazed it will likely do that even it you tighten it. You can try belt dressing but those are temporary.

Loud squealin from power steering belt

Check the tension of the power steering belt.
It is probably loose and slipping - belts can stretch during their initial run in period.

Loud sqeal from harmonic balancer

If you can physically move the damper the isolating rubber is probably starting to seep out and the damper should be replaced. That is, assuming just the outer part of the damper where the belt goes on is moving and not the whole thing.

My 1999 malibu screeches loud .

Is this screeching like a sqealing? It will be a belt problem, the belt is slipping on the pulley system you may be able to adjust tension or spray on some belt dressing but will most likely need to change the belt hope this helps you,good luck
