My 2002 PTCruiser squeals in gear

My 2002 PTCruiser squeals and slips in and out of gear. It's an automatic. It happened when coming off the highway onto the deceleration ramp. I came to a stop and when I hit the gas, the car acted like it was in neutral. Just revved. Then it started to squeal and went into first gear. During this drive, the car would go in and out of gear, squealing when it went in gear. The squealing gets higher in pitch the more the engine revs.
No leaks. Trans fluid and oil look good. Whassupwitdat?

SOURCE: 1998 Chrysler Grand Voyager Automatic gear box slipping

If the fluid is full , it sounds like the trans pump is loosing prime. If it is there will be a code set. The code will not always turn on the light. Go have the codes checked. If it does have a loss of prime code in the trans computor and the fluid is full then you will need the trans pump replaced

SOURCE: van brakes squeal/whistle even when stopped

Sounds to me like a dry, loose or worn serpentine belt. With the motor idling, lightly spray the serpentine belt as it's spinning with WD-40 or other oil based lubricant (Don't spray near the alternator). If this doesn't work, turn the mortor off and check the tension and for cracks or worn spots. The brakes will not squeal when you are completely still.

One of the belt should be loose or worn. Make sure they are not worn or cracking before tightening.

I have a 1998 Plymouth Voyager. It has an automatic transmission. It will go forward ok, but when I try to backup the transmission squeals like its slipping and the van won’t move. Any advice will be...


The reverse plates in the transmission are burned up. There's a coating on the plates that cause them to catch on each other and the gears to function correctly. In your case for some reason the coating has come off and the plates are slipping causing the squeal.

I have already put a new tranny in my 2002


Are you using aftermarket additives like ptfe products? Some of those products come with a warning that it may cause gears to slip. How many miles are on your truck between transmissions? Since this isn't a common problem with Chevrolet, and this is the second time, it is hard to pinpoint. Have a transmission shop do a diagnostic.

Squeals when starting up


The squealing could be a belt slipping - the alternator would be working hard to charge the battery after being parked.
The lack of power could be a different issue. A 1992 model should not have a choke - it should be fuel injected.

2002 Mercury Cougar Squeal


Just for testing, a few seconds, will the vehicle start and run w/o the belt? Have a helper work the throttle, is the sound gone? If problem not the belt, check the belt driven accessory. Sometimes you can use a long metal rod of some kind, with belt on, one end of the rod touches accessory housing, the other end goes on that bone behind your ear, helps to magnify the sound. I guess you could use a mechanics stethoscope to do the same thing. Have helper work the throttle while you listen to each. Don't get tool or anything caught in belt. This is a serpentine belt, I haven't looked?
Maybe an accessory trying to freeze up or bad bearing? I can't think of anything else at the moment?

2002 Porsche Boxster - had squealing coming from


Mine did that off and on for a month with no other problems then it started making a loud suction noise and the check engine light came on. I took it to the dealer and they said the "oil separator" needed to be replaced.
After the repair I never heard the squealing again.

The automatic gearbox on my mondeo 2002 changes gears but slips


In the engine compartment, you will need to locate the transmission dipstick. Usually on the left side of the motor, labeled "Trans fluid". Pull it out and check the fluid level. Your problem could be as simple as putting transmission fluid in it. That will make it slip. You fill the transmission right down the dipstick tube.
