2006 Nissan Sentra. Belts squeaks and stop seeking when you step on brakes.


If I understand this, your fan and other belts driving components in the engine bay stop squeaking when stepping on the brake? Your belts may need some adjustment to tighten. But it may be a vacuum hose leaking around the power brake chamber, or it is leaking, and sounds like the squeeking you describe. I would temporarily confirm the belt squeak by using a "Belt dressing spray" from your auto parts store, to see if it really is the belt or a possible vacuum leak. My belts squeak sometimes after the first start of the day in cold weather since the alternator is working very hard to recharge the battery after the start. It will be quieter when the engine is slowed down as in your braking scenario.

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.

Why does my 1991 subaru squeaks then cuts out for a sec.


If it's happening while driving and no brakes applied it's probably a belt causing the noise. There's a product available in most local auto shops that you can use to lubricate the belt. I think the actual name is "stop squeak" but I'm not positive.
If it's squeaking while breaking you may need new breaks or your breaks may be too tight. Another product exists for breaking squeals available in your local auto shop

Alternator belt is loose or there is oil on the pulleys or belt making it slip instead of charge the battery. Check belt tension on your belts

Squeaking fan belt


fan belts squeak for several reasons 1 incorrect belt for pulley.2 belt running on the botton of the pulley and worn pulleys. To check measure across the top part of the pulley and the widest part (back) of the belt should be the same if not marginally bigger. V belts work best at t5he top of the pulley.If you can see that the pulley is polished at the bottom the belt is slipping and not driving Check if the pulley sides where the belt runs is not stepped from wear. Recheck the tension as new belts stretch slightly. If you have a multi groove pulley check the tension setting. As a last resort CRC make a product that is used to stop belt but it is best to fix the real fault first

97 plymouth vourger new belt still squeeks


It sounds like one of your pulleys may be having bearing issues, one way to check this is to go to the parts store and buy some "belt dressing" it is a spray that stops belt squeak. Find a safe spot where you can spray the belt while its moving and only spray the belt. If the belt stops squeaking its just a squeaky belt. If it keeps squeaking then you may have one of your pulleys going bad.

Sometimes pulleys will squeak too if they are just not very lubricated. If the belt dressing works you are good to go, if it doesn't work, go ahead and give the belt area a good spray down avoiding your electrical components. Thanks.

Fan belt squeaking


Hi. Usually, this will lead to the replacement of the belt, itself. Check the condition of the belt. Make sure it is not worn, or cracking. If dry rotting is visible, simply replace the belt. If the tension is beyond factory specs, adjust to correct the issue.

2003 Volkswagen Jetta squeaking noise!


As you probably know squeaking could be alot of things, but the most common noise, that would not effect performance, would be serpentine belts. You can buy a can of belt dressing at Autozone, that you spray on the inside, the contact side, of the belt. If it is the belt, this should help. If it's been a long time since replaced you may want to replace belt. Alot of those belts will break after being worn out, but the better quality belts may not break, but they will make a horrendous squealing noise. If it's not the belt, you'd have to have someone look at it to troubleshoot. Good luck.

Take a bar of soap at touch it on the side of belt when it is running. Becareful!!! or spray some WD40 on it. Should stop it. If not it must be something wrong with whatever it is running. If that is a serpentine belt spray it. Soap is good on v-belts.
