Question about 2007 Mazda MAZDA6

1 Answer

Squeak in low gear.

Have a Mazda 6 5sp Manual. In 1st and 2nd gear there is a loud squeak that comes up when I tap on the accelorator between 1-15mph. Occurs only in low gears and low speed. Any ideas on where this is comming from? Squeak goes away when at higher speed (or I just cant hear it). Im guessing drive belt.

Try spraying the belt with a "dressing" spray. With the engine not running of course. If it stops, then your belts may need adjustment or replacement.

What do i do for loud squeak when i turn flymo tl400


Loud squeak when turning on is usually low power steering fluid or a water pump going out. If the power steering fluid is fine keep an eye on your temp gauge and make sure it is staying consistent when hot.

There is a recurring loud squeak from under the hood. What is it?


May be a worn on loose drive belt that squeaks as the engine idle speeds up as you change gear. Spray the belt with WD40 or similar . If this stops the squeak tighten or replace the belt.

My 2002 Maz Protege (156K) squeaks really really loud (sounds like fingernails on a chalkboard), but ONLY on these occasions: 1. I turn my car on, and it's been raining. It will squeak for about 2 minutes,...


you need to tighten or repace you fan belt.if it has a self tensioner that may need to be lubed where it pivots or repace it if that does'nt work.

Valve clearance


tappets dont squeak .. you want to hope the noise is coming from an ageing or loose fan belt .. if it is really coming from inside the valve cover then it could be a blocked oil passage that lubs the cam and its bearings ..this would soon cause a major engine failure .. other possibilities .. a bad bearing in the idler pully, water pump or alternator (a drop of oil on those can help identify the failing bearing) ... also at times the distributor can cause noise if its bearings run dry .. there is a really neat stethoscope like tool that allows you to listen to various parts and places to locat the problem .. but be careful playing around a running engine (no ties, long hair, necklaces .. if its the fan belt then it will likely make more noise as the engine is accelerating .. turning the lights on might increase or change the noise .. a leaky vacuum hose can cause a whistle like sound. .

Loud squeak when engine is on.


Is it a squeak or a howell thats the real question here because it could be the oil trap which is about $140 and is attached to the bottom of the filter housing not to hard to do if you have worked on this type of car befor. And has the car died yet.
