Engine screeches when running. revving the motor makes it stop momentarily


Could be a belt screeching. Fan belt, A/C belt, Serpentine Belt, alternator belt, etc. Easiest way to isolate which belt is to open the hood and use your ears to see where the screeching is coming from. Left, right, front, behind the engine? Spray some WD-40 on the belt you think is making noise and if it quiets right away, then that is the belt making the noise. Either the tensioner needs adjusting or the belt needs replacing. The WD-40 does not hurt the car, it'll start screeching again in a few days when it wears off.

Sqeaking from the accessory belt drive. could be a bearing in one of the pulleys, the pump, the alt or the belt tension has weakened. It occurs off and on, usually just off idle but sometimes at idle. Is...


common cause is the belt gets worn and stretched, yes the tensioner is suppose to keep its tension but also the tensioner gets weak and all it takes is a couple slips of the belt to harden and you will get a squeal. Spray WD 40 on tensioner, idler pulleys, alternator behind pulley, not on belt or where belt rides on pulleys but at all bearing locations. Did squeal stop? If not replace belt. Usually a chevy water pump will leak, or grind not sqeak unless there is rusty non lubricated so called coolant in it which 1974 maybe but 2007 na im sure you didn't neglect this baby. You can also inspect the belt carefully, possibly buy a can of belt dressing and spray belt but do make sure you use a ratchet and check your belt tensioner for smooth non sticky tension pressure.

Its actually a 87 dodge aries k car. My gear


I have an 87 aries wagon that it happened to. Spray lots of WD-40 on it. It is usually due to a rusty/corroded cable, and wd-40 should loosen it up. Take the cable off of the lever, and see if you can shift it out of "1st gear" if you can't or if it's tough, spray some WD-40 in/on the cable, and hold the clutch in, and shift to random gears a bunch of times. it may take a few sprayings, but if the cable isn't too far gone, you can do that. it wouldn't hurt to spray it on the lever where it pivots.

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee squeaking and power steering


It very well could be the pawer steering pump. But to isolate the squeking sound, take that can of wd-40 and find the idler pully and tensior pully. Spray the bearing area of both pulleys. If your bearing in those pulleys are going bad then it will make that noise. If the wd-40 quits the noise at one of those tow pulleys then you know which one to replace. If its does not, then start looking to replace the powersteering pump. I take it you have checked the power steering fluid levels and they are ok?? Also, you stated that the noise started after you bought the alternator, then try a new alternator. It might of just been a faulty alternator. Happens all the time. One last inexpensive tip is replacing all belts with new. Belts get glazed over and dirty and cause noise too. One last question. Did you make sure the belts were tight enough? Just a little variance in the belt tension can make the difference.

When I start my jeep, half the time a squeal sound is made. What could that be?


Could be a few things....these are a couple of places to start and things to try.

Your pulleys: spray WD-40 with a straw at the bearing area...like on the alternator. Do one pulley at a time.

Check your belts for glazing....they'll look shiny.

Do one at a time....if you do them all at oncde, you won't know which one got silenced by the spray.

Fan belt was broken at 28000 kms replaces but squeaking noise on start comes plz help to rectify the prob thanx


Spray some WD-40 on the pulleys...one at a time. This will let you know which pulley needs lube or replacement. If your belt is too tight it will squeek also.

Do the first thing...let me know what you find.

Replace front drive belts. There comes a time when they get so worn and polished that they just don't grip anymore.
