Dressing does help although if the belt or pulley has a glaze on it the squeal will prevail

What makes a belt squeal on a 2004 mercury grand marquis

Hi - The belt may need to be replaced, or the belt tensioner may need to be replaced. These belts are pretty trouble free. Easy to replace, just make sure you replace in the same way as the original was on the pulleys. Most cars have a diagram somewhere on the inside the engine compartment.

Bad squeel when i start my car when cold, but goes away as soon as it warms up, what is it

The accessory belt most likely or possibly an accessory belt idler pulley is causing the squealing until the belt warms up enough to stop slipping against one of the pulleys which is causing the noise. Either replace the belt or inspect the tensioner pulley and replace.
You can try to buy "belt dressing" at the auto parts store for a temporary solution. Just spray the belt dressing on the contact surface of the belt it should quiet down for a few days.

I just had my belts replaced on my 2004 Hyundai Elantra Sedan and it still squeals when i first start it up but goes away after i start driving. i added belt dressing spray and that helps but a week later...

check the tension. cheap belts will stretch. if after you retension them (especially the alternator belt) you may need to replace them with BANDO or OEM belts.

it could squeel due to it being a new belt or dust/dirty from the road. the pulley could also be warn and squeaks due to metal rubbing against metal

2003 town and country. belt squealing. put dressing on it. it got worse. wht needs to be donr?

It needs to be replaced. Belt dressing is a scam, it might have worked in the 60's, but in this century it ruins belts.

Had belt squeal, treated w/belt dressing now loud clicking

One of your pulleys is seizing. Most likely the a/c compressor or the tensioner (idler pulley).

Use a helper.... turn OFF a/c and have someone start the car. Observe the pulleys and see if the center one quits turning or is the source of the noise.
If can't determine and no noise, turn ON A/C and observe.
You will find it, but stay out of the line-of-fire if the belt breaks... it will be slingshot out of the engine compartment!!

My 97 tercel has also starting squealing when cold-but only when I reverse.

Squealing, like a belt? I've found that the alternator belt has to be super-tight or else it squeals. It's a pain in the **** to torque the alternator sideways enough to tighten the belt.

If it is a belt, you could also buy some belt dressing spray and see if that helps. It's pretty cheap stuff per can.

Squealing NOISE possibly from fan belt

Belts stretch from new. Try to tighten them again. Hopefully the are not glazed or this may stay with you.
