Is it worse when cold or wet? Could be a lose or worn serpentine belt, or a bad tensioner.
Check belts for any cracks on it (check both sides, inside normally cracks first)
Check tension of the belt, with your fingers you should be able to twist the best roughly 45 degrees, if it's a lot more than that check the tensioner, try tightening the bolt to add tension.

Engine Squeal, unsure where from, not belt, Sounds like vacuum leak, but can not find the source.


Squeal is always from the serpentine belt. Buy a can of Belt Conditioner, and spray it on the belt with the engine running. Sometimes you have to spray two days apart.

You can make a stethoscope by using a length of plastic tube and putting one end to your ear and the other end in the direction of the noise.

Breaks have a high pitch squeal when i break ata any speed. got breaks checked out and mechanic saidneverything was fine


A high pitch squeal is typically normal. However I have NEVER liked it.

I would replace your brakes with a higher quality brake pad, and see if you still have the problem.


Your pads can squeal when they are getting low, i would also get a second opinion on the condition of the pads.
