High squeal from engine area

My wifes van has had a high pitched squeal coming from the engine area for a while now. The noise is highlighted when she presses the accelerator. We have replaced the serpinteen belt many times with no resolution. What other part could be causing this problem.

I would suspect one of the idler pulleys, alternator bearings, water pump baring, you can isolate the location of the sound by using a short piece of hose, hold one end at your ear and with the engine running and the squealing noise evident carefully aim the other end of the hose at the deferment pulley locations, as you get closer to the noise source you will hear a marketable rise in noise you hear through the hose, careful not to get the hose caught up in the belt

Its making high pitched noise, how do I stop it


High pitched squealing is usually metal on metal. Check bearings and brake pads in area of noise location.

There is a squealing noise under the hood when starting


You don't say what the year and model is - you may have an intake air temp sensor thats supposed to be in the intake manifold or the air hose that would be in the area of the back of the engine. If it is pulled out it would cause a hissing noise, not really a squeal.
A squealing noise is usually a slipping belt or bad bearing.

What would cause whistling noise near pully and belt area noise gets louder with acceleration


The engine serpentine belt may be worn or wet. The belt slips, causing a high pitched squealing or whistle noise. The other possiblility is a bearing beginning to go out on one of your belt driven components
