Question about 2004 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

My car is squeeling. It seems to be coming from the serpentine belt area, although, I just changed the belt to stop it from squeeling. But, that did not fix the problem. What else can it be?

We have a 2008 GMC Envoy. It started making a high pitch squeel as soon as we started the car and only stops when the car is turned off. We changed the serpentine belt and both bearing. But the squeeling...

Its vary likely a bearing noise . Eighter the altenator power steering pump air pump or water pump . Although it could also be the belt tenisinor its a big time ware part . Thats what i would look at first .The water pump would be leaking from the bottom . The altenator would be giveing you battery problems charging . The air pump if you have one would show signs in engine porformance . The power steering pump you may not notcce a porformance issue .Its likely the belt tenisioner

My 2001 chevy cavaier z24 has a squeeling noise when idling and accelerating. seems to happen when its cold outside. coming from the serpentine belt area any help out there?

This means that you need to have your belt replaced. The sound is coming from the belt itself because it is worn. The belts are not too expensive and are fairly easy to replace if you are a DIY guy.

When i put my belt back on my 98 mercury grand marques it started making squealy noise when the car is on

I am assuming your talking about the serpentine belt, you need to check all the pulleys that the serpentine belt rides on, P/S, alt. ider pulley, A/C, tensioner. water pump, if everything seems good, put the belt back on and locate where the sound is coming from, use a wood dowel to hear exactly what is squeeling.
check the power steering fluid.

I just replaced my water pump on my 1993 s10 blazer as well as the s-belt and the arrow on the tensioner doesn't seem to be in the marked area and the front end is squealing. Also there are 2 arrows on the...

The arrow on the tensioner is the point where the belt has stretched and should be replaced. The squeeling is something that you may have to get used to, I've had 7 out of the last ten belts i've changed that squeal like hell and I could do nothing to stop it. I think their cheaping out on the material costs. Thank you, Dana P.S. if your talking about the serpentine belt and not the timing belt, than the marks are irrevelvent. The second arrow is the point where the tensioner should lie when the belt is new.

Engine noise on area of pulleys and sometimes engine tries to sto

Don't know if this helps. Had squeel in belt area. Occasionally engine would stop when squeel got loud and sometimes engine would try to quit while going at various speeds. Found tensioner pulley was bad and changed it. Still squeeled and engine would stop when squeel got loud. This time while sitting in yard. Further checking found binding in power steering pump. Will be putting on new one tomorrow. Hope it works. Will update.
