A squeeking type sound coming from the serpentine

There is a squeeking type sound coming from the serpentine belt area? It stops after the truck has been running for a while. It sounds like something that needs to be oiled. The oil pump was replaced a few months ago.
Thank you for any help.

Noise could be the result of a dried out belt, a belt that needs adjustment or any one of the pulleys driven by the belt. The oil pump has nothing to do with the belt. Inspect it and try tightening it up a bit. If that does not help, remove the belt and check all the pulleys for noise and rough turning, replace the belt and re-tighten.

Sounds like serpentine belt is squeeking


If the squeek stops as the motor warms up replace it. You can also purchase some squeek stop spray and see if that helps before buying a new belt

When using airconditioner, it makes a squeeking noise, what would it be. almost sounds like the pulling


Get an assistant, open the hood and have them stand by the corner where the air conditioner compressor is located. It is a barrel shaped round contraption driven through a clutch by the serpentine belt. Now turn the air conditioner on and off while they listen. If the squealing arises from that area then you most likely have a problem with the compressor or clutch going bad. If not, then I would suspect the serpentine belt tensioner. If you have a lick of common sense, you can actually take a very large and long screwdriver, put the pointy end on various engine components with the handle end held to an ear and you can the noise coming directly from the problem part. On the other hand you are sticking a dangerous projectile of death into whirring spinning machinery and all kinds of bad things can happen without the greatest amount of care on your part..

Loud squeeking coming from the belt area


you'll have to the belt if the belt is old.
also, a temporary solution i learned that gets rid of some of the noise is to slowly pour a pitcher of water on the belt while the car is on.

Major friction/squeeking from serpentine belt!!!!


Keith,it sounds like you may need to clean the grooved surfaces on your pulleys,you could remove the belt and use some aerosol brake cleaner and a stiff brush to remove any build-up on the pulleys.you could also try spraying the same on the pulleys while the car is running,just be sure and wear eye protection and don't get to close to any moving parts.

Skeaky serpentine belt


are you positive the squeek is coming form the belt area?

the squeek can be from several other places, fan clutches can cause a high speed squeek, take the fan off and see if that cures it, the water pump front bearing can also be the culprit but that is hard to figure out without swapping in a new water pump, and lastly look at the AC compressor clutch, see if the squeek changes when you turn on and off the AC

hope this helps,
