Although the belt appears to be in good shape, it is slipping due to 'glazing' of the belt, that is the belt can't grip due to the surface becoming glazed, or slippery. There is a product called 'belt dressing' that you can spray on the belt to give it a better grip (available at any parts store). If it doesn't work, or only lasts for a short time after application, you'll need to replace the belt to stop the squealing. Leaking or spilling of fluids on the belt could also cause the slipping.

The belt may be good but the pulleys may be too polished from wear, you can actually buy a can of spray to prevent the squealing, a little messy but works good, ask your parts store for it if you didn't want to change pullys. Usual pully to fault is the tensioner pully. Good luck

Check for low power steering fluid, the cap should have a steering wheel icon on it.

My 2003 for tarsus makes a chipping sound I've changed the belt, the pulley, it still make that sound. when I spray wd40 on it stops for a min, and start back. what to do now. please help


i had a sunfire that did the same thing and couldnt figure out why it squeeled. there are two temperary fixes. one is to get a tube of black gasket maker and put about a dime size dab on the actual ribs of the belt in 3 different spots and start the car. it should stop immediately. or you can start the car and sprinkle some cat litter or oil dry directly to belt. basicly its going to fill in the grooves to stop squeel. i hope this helps

At start up I have a loud squeal on my 99 Mazda 626. Both belts are new and so is the alternator. The squeal only last for about 10 secs or so and goes away. I have started it in neutral and the squeal is...


Does your car have air conditioning.? Most cars use the A/C compressor to dry the air for the defrost. It will also come on for a short time when you first start the car. With the engine running after the squeel has stopped , try turning the A/C on , If the squeel starts again , then I would think your A/C compressor is seized. Also . are you sure the 2 new belts are tight enough?

Squeeling when the car starts.


Your belts need replaced. Its the belt slipping that causes the squeel. Sometimes the idle pulley or belt tensioner will make the same noise if wore.

Squeels at start for first two seconds


The squeeling could be from a worn belt or if oil drips on belt overnight. Replace the belt first to see if that fixes it.Good luck.

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.
