Belt noise when i start the car and it is cold. Last for about 15 secs. It has a new timing belt.


no engine stated, and this varies by ,, engine.

the belts , if new , screech for only 2 reasons
1: loose (or oil soaked, watch a guy last weak oil it to stop this)sad.
2: or the accessory its driving is seized.

id bet the cogged, timing belt will never screech, its idler might.
did you inspect all parts as you asssembled the engine.
no engine stated, so be hard for the blind to answer with savvy,
accurate answers, no?

ACCESSORY belts are tension'ed, 3 ways. (3 classes of systems)
1; manual tension. means you sit it to spec.
2: auto tension'ers
3: some look like auto type and are not.... the book for your engine tells all this.

the cam belt as special tension'g steps, did you follow those.
we cant guess what you did wrong.
nor if you even followed all steps.
below is technician loosing the auto tensioner
if the tensioner feels weak or bad, it is.
my guess, (useless) is that the cam belt is ok
but you skipped the accessory belts tension steps.
if it didnt screech before.451adf4b-5c25-45c0-9005-5e285b255e75.jpg

Does the serpentine belt go around a tensioner and an idler pulley. because i cant find a tensioner for sale at all and im starting to think it doesnt exist. everyone keeps trying to sell me a timing belt...


some use just the alternater with a worm screw to put tenso on the belt or the alternater will have a slider where the screwis located that allows you to tilt the alternater up and down to put tenson on the belt

What makes a belt squeak?


Belts squeak for the same reason tires do when they spin. They are slipping. Something isn't turning as fast as the belt wants it to. On ford it's usually ether the idler sprocket or the tensioner. If you remove the belt and try spinning all of the pulleys by hand.( note the crank wont spin freely) you will usually be able to tell witch ones slipping.

Want to know how to change out the serpentine belt step by step


You will need a 3/8 drive ratchet to put in square hole in belt tensioner. The tensioner is located just below power steering pump and a little to right. Check for belt orientation and diagram on front of engine bay. Push or pull ratchet to loosen tensioner. Remove belt. When installing new belt, flat side of belt rides on flat pulleys and the grooved part of belt rides on grooved pulleys. Install belt around all pulleys except power steering and tensioner pulleys, loose tensioner and install belt on last two pulleys.

Hi we have a kia sedona 2000year and 2.9 diesel, exec. auto. it came with half the engine in the boot, we have skimed the head and rebuilt it just the new cam belt just wont tighten enough we have fully...


the cam belt should have a little slack in it,, about 1/2 inch over its longest run, its not like a fan belt witch should be tight, but check the idler bearing are not worn out,,and i do hope this is a new belt for this car,,,if your using the old belt,,,dont! fit a new one on it or it could brake on you, and that would be another engine rebuild on your hands,,,

The tensioner won't release on my jeep


If your tensioner will not release pressure then you will require a new tensioner. These units do loose the ability to apply proper tension and they fatigue over time. Also, make sure that the belt you have is the proper length.
