What causes a squeaky sound from the engine of an 2000 Isuzu rodeo when engine is running?


it could be one of the belts. if you put a little wax or brake fluid on the belt in a couple of places and the squeak goes away then you either have a loose belt/s or the belts/s need replacing. if no change it could be the timing belt making the noise.

Squeaky noises under the hood


IT COULD BE AN IDLER, TENSIONER, OR THE BELT SLIPPING, THESE ARE SEALED YOU CAN'T LUBE THEM. IT SOUNDS LIKE THE BELT IS SLIPPING, BUT IT COULD BE SLIPPING BECAUSE OF A FAULTY IDLER\TENSIONER. REMOVE THE BELT, MAKE SURE ENGINE IS SHUT OFF, AND YOU HAVE THE KEYS, ROTATE ALL THE PULLEY'S AND THE ALTERNATOR PULLEY THEY SHOULD ROTATE FREELY AND RUN TRUE, AND NO ROUGH FEEL TO THEM, OR THE TENSION COULD BE TOO WEEK TO KEEP THE BELT TIGHT.

Wouldn't run with out battery. change alternator, disconnect battery leads and engine shut off. What is the problem.


It won't run without a battery, It won't run without the alternator either. I am thinking the battery is dead, or not charging, even the new alternator doesn't mean it is good, Get the battery tested for electrolyte level and voltage, get the alternator tested or at least see if the voltage goes up with with the engine running. Not running, check the terminals on the battery, make sure they are squeaky clean. Voltage above 13+ V. All 6 cells good, check it out. hope this helps.

I've got a squeaky belt upon starting the 2001 Galant


There should only be about 1/2" deflection on the belts if you push down with your fingers. If they are ok i would suggest you investigate your alternator first , then last resort water pump bearing.(new water pump)
