Loud screeching noise when I turn on a/c


Likely just to be the A/C belt. It may need an adjustment or replacement. With key out of car just smear a little bit of grease (not much) on the belt. Start the vehicle & turn on A/C. If noise gone or quieter the belt is the problem.

Loud screeching noise upon starting


It is your serpentine belt slipping on one of the metal pulleys and the friction is causing the high pitch screech. The belt may need to be tightened or replaced, which is an easy fix.

2006 Dodge Gr. Caravan. Loud humming noise upon


Misalignment of the belt, incorrect belt, worn or loose tensioner, Too tight of an adjustment (many service centers do this on purpose so when the belt breaks in it becomes properly adjusted, I do not believe in this philosophy), The belt is actually one long belt called a serpentine belt.....

I have a 1990 jeep YJ replaced the alternator and now there is a loud screeching noise replaced the belt,replaced new bearing in idler pulley still makes a loud screeching noise?


If the belt is not tense enough it will squeal, so make sure it's tight enough. Otherwise you can use a stethoscope or long screwdriver up to your ear to isolate the source of the noise.

I have a 1990 240 DL volvo and there is a loud screeching noise when I turn the A.C. on and turn corners. If I turn the A.C. off the noice stops. What is it, and how do I fix it?


Your drive belt tension may be set too loose or the belt itself is going bad. If you have a spring loaded tensioner, that may have weakened as well. Bottom line is that when belt is not tight enough, the normal load from the compressor added to the extra load on the pump when turning causes the belt to slip (making noise) Eventually, it may begin making noise when started as the alternator demands more power in order to work (you likely have heard cars with this problem in parking lots...loud screech right after starting) Wish I remembered which method they use to restore tension on yours butyou can easily get that info in any inexpensive manual (they may even allow you just to browse it without buying)


Good Luck!!!

My serpintine belt started making a loud screeching noise, and eventually slipped off. I got it put back on but its still making a screeching noise. All of this started after i got the AC compressor fixed....


One of the belt pulleys likely has a bad bearing. watch the pulleys for binding while it's running or remove the belt and check each pulley by hand. AC puts more strain on the belt...if the belt is not new and pulleys check out, (and tensioner is working properly) change the belt.

Loud screeching noise coming from car after stops.


the screeching noise is most likely caused by a slipping belt or pully. transmission probably needs fluid and filter changed.

My mustang is smoking and making a screeching sound.


You have a Bad Belt Tensioner and will need a new one and Possibly a new Belt. Have the Alternator Checked also. It could have gone Bad during these Problems. If the Tensioner is Not keeping the Belt very Tight it will not allow the Alt. To charge the Battery and it will drain very fast.
