Try soaking a rag with brake fluid and soaking all the pulley that are available with the same brake fluid. CLOSE THE HOOD FIRMLY, I say this because brake fluid is the worlds best paint stripper. Start the engine and your squeak will be gone. If thuis fix doesn't last long you'll have to obtain another belt for sometimes the cords are exposed on the finish cut of the belt which causes the squeak.

Its one of two things.

1. your tensioner is bad and not creating enough tension on the belt causing it to slip when you accelerate.

2. it could be the belt.

let it go for a week or 2 and see if it stops, if not I would go ahead and replace the belt tensioner.

SOURCE: serpentine belt squeaks on startup

You can not tighten the belt, it is held on by the Belt tensioner...it's located a little to the left side of the waterpump...now it maybe getting weak, or your belt may need to be replaced...Sometimes they look good, with no cracks, but they get worn and streched out over time..or it may look shiny..either one of those will cause it too squeak..

SOURCE: The serpentine belt squeaks. I'll check the belt

The Corolla's has a hydralic belt tensioner. When you replace the serp belt you need to buy a factory Toyota belt. The reason why the after-market reproduction belts are slightly long or short. This
will either cause a squeaky belt problem or a over adjusted belt condition which could burn up one of your engines accessories (p/s pump, alt. etc.)

SOURCE: squeaking noise in engine. not serpentine belt.

You might have a dry bearing in the alternator. I've had a squeaking noise from them.

Testimonial: "thanks! the noise is not constant. it cycles with the rpm's. it like squeak-squeak- squeak and progresses as the rpm's increase."

Ck all units that run against the belt, something is probably locked up and causing the belt to squeak.

2002 dodge ramn 4.7 has a squeak squeaks on first start up and once warm squeaks between 40 to 45 mph any faster or slower don't do it wont do it at idle brand new waterpump and belt pulley spin free


Check alternator decoupler, thats new name for mechanical pulley. Pull serpentine belt and check if alternator pulley is a one way clutch. Should freewheel in opposite direction smoothly and lock up in drive direction. If it doesnt lock up in about 1-2mm of rotation, its bad and will cause a random squeak, usually at idle and when getting off the gas at any rpm.

Truck squeaks at start-up and goes away after 2 seconds...at times when I'm driving it will squeak and the voltage meter drops below 14 while squeaking. get off the gas and it stops and everything goes...


Your serpentine belt tensioner may be bad,not holding enough tensioner and not letting your alternator keep a charge on your battery,get some one to sit in your vehicle,open hood,have them start it while you watch the belts turn and have them rev the engine up to see if the belt turns loosely.another thing to look at is the A.C.compressor locking up .Power steering pump could be locking up,just check it out while it's running and see.

Serpentine belt squeaks


try some belt dressing if that does not fix the problem then you will need to get another belt take it back to o riely and get a new belt or your money back then go to the other parts store and purchase another belt. Remember you get what you pay for. there might be other problems like the altenator or tensioners or a/c compressor might be draging

Squeaking after starting


The squeaking noise is probably coming from the serpentine belt. Usually a new belt will fix the problem. You could have premature belt failure due to a weak tensioner, oil leaks,or other accessories that are attached to the belt. Hope this helps :)

2003 Volkswagen Jetta squeaking noise!


As you probably know squeaking could be alot of things, but the most common noise, that would not effect performance, would be serpentine belts. You can buy a can of belt dressing at Autozone, that you spray on the inside, the contact side, of the belt. If it is the belt, this should help. If it's been a long time since replaced you may want to replace belt. Alot of those belts will break after being worn out, but the better quality belts may not break, but they will make a horrendous squealing noise. If it's not the belt, you'd have to have someone look at it to troubleshoot. Good luck.

05 XL-7 I changed my old belts (with no squeaking) now one of the new belts squeaks loud, mostly in the morning when neighbors can hear and give dirty looks, like "get a new belt you incompetent grease...


Take a bar of soap at touch it on the side of belt when it is running. Becareful!!! or spray some WD40 on it. Should stop it. If not it must be something wrong with whatever it is running. If that is a serpentine belt spray it. Soap is good on v-belts.
