It sounds like you have a loose or worn alternator belt
(same belt drives water pump) That would explain the
screeching noise and the battery light on when wet.
Check the belts for tension and wear on the inside of
the belts(cracks or pieces missing) if you're going to
change the belt or belts yourself, thats the best time
to check the pullys and make sure they are tight and
spin true. Hope this helps.

I'm needing some help. Three months ago my car started making a high-pitch whining noise when accelerating from low speeds then it stops after so many RPM's.


Does it make the same sounds when you start the car? If so, could be a water pump. If you replace the pump, replace the timing chain/belt at the same time.

Also, you might take a lube stick to the belt. One or more could be squealing.

Sounds like the idler pulley. It is what keeps tension on the surpentine belt. Usually a water pump will start dripping water through a small hole in pump that opens when the bearings go bad and start to wobble. You can spray some lube on idler pulley to see if it quiets it down some thou this is not a permanent fix. It will pinpoint the problem

Some time when i start my car the engine will make a humming sound. and some time when i am driving the engine will make the same noise.


Turn off the airconditioning to see if that helps. If it does, then it is likely the airconditioning compressor.

Remove the water pump drive belt. Feel the water pump for free play. If excessive, then replace the pump. You can try spinning it too to see if it's noisy.

WIth the drive belts off, start the car for a few seconds. Twenty seconds tops should do it. Not too long as it will overheat.
Is the noise still present. If not, then check all pump bearings, pulley bearings, tensioner bearings, water pump etc as the noise is one of those things.

My 1991 toyota camry makes a sqeaky/grinding noise during startup then sometimes will make the same noise but consitently at idle until i start moving and get up to about 20 mph


The water pump can do this,You also have a timing belt tesioner and pulley these make noise and are very common,if you ignore this noise you will very well soon end up replacing a broken timing belt,just to reassure you if the timing belt breaks you have valve clearance.so your solution is a timing belt timing belt tensioner, timing belt pulley. and why not do a water pump since your in there

My 89 toyota corolla started making a strange rattling noise about a week ago but continued to run without problems. The noise started intermittently but became louder and more consistent. A neighborhood...


sounds like you need to replace the power steering pump,of not overheating or loosing coolant,would check water pump,if no power steering sonds like the pump is bad,mechanic depepnding on their ability could change for you,up to you if you want to pay a shop to replace pump.

Whining sound and lost acceleration. Sounds like noise coming from pully? Whining increases when pressing the gas.


The lost acceleration is of major concern. Maybe you have lost your water pump. It would work great for a few miles when you start out and then gradually heat up and loose performance. The fluid would eventually boil over? Maybe a bearing on the camshaft is expressing it's discontent and causing extra load for the engine to overcome. Try to determine where the noise is coming from.
The serpentine belt connects the alternator, water pump, power steering, front timing pulley, fan, and front timing pulley. All these components generate a parasitic load on your engine. If the engine has to work harder because of increased load it could be any of these components. I'd definitely check the water pump listening for noise while running. Look for obvious things related to the belt and its' components.
Check the serpentine belt for wear. May indicate pulley misalignment or wear. There exists two idler pulleys that have small bearings that wear out and squealing noises. Check those for wobble with the tension off the belt. They are pretty cheap so replace them if any concern at all.
Power steering pumps cavitate and make a high pitch gear whining sound if fluids are low or gears warn of. Check the fluid and top off to the correct level.
Best wishes,
TF

I was driving my 1999 Saab 9-5 today, it was raining, right after going through a puddle, my power steering stopped working, the battery light came on, so I pulled into a gas station, turned the engine...


LOL, nooooooo. You didn't hurt anything. In fact, you identified a problem by going through that puddle. You need a new serpentine belt and/or tensioner pulley. It sounds like the spring in your tensioner pulley may be worn, and not pulling your serpentine belt tight enough. Now, THAT being said, there MAY be yet another issue going on. While I don't doubt for a minute that you need 1) a new serp. belt, 2) a new tensioner pulley, and 3) a can of belt dressing, you may also want to check (while the old serp belt is off during the changing) that all your pulleys are spinning freely. Especially your AC compressor pulley. If your AC is low on refridgerant, it can lock up the pulley. The serp belt drives your power steering pump, your alternator, your AC pump, water pump, etc. If one pulley siezes up, the tensioner is weak, and the belt gets wet, NOTHING will turn. Hence the dead battery (alternator not turning), no power steering (pump not turning), and more importantly no coolant circulation (water pump not turning), which can cause serious overheating problems.

I was told its the waterpump that is making a load snorkeling noice what is its if not? almost like a dieseling noice also


Yes the water pump can make noises but there is also the belts that can make noises.
So pour some water when the car starts on the belt and pump area to see if the sound stops, if belt noise it will stop but if this is the water pump, the alternator bearing or the idler pulley , it must be checked.

Strange Noise from front end of engine 97 intrepid 3.5L


Sounds like it could be the water pump, timing belt tenstioner/pulley. The water pump is driven off the back side of the timing belt and it may or may not leak if the bearing is bad. I have seen water pumps that are about to fall off not leak. If you look at the front of the oil pan just under the crank pulley and see even 1 drip of green coolant your water pump is shot. The stamped steel front cover comes off easy to inspect the timing belt and stuff. Your engine is a iron block engine and if the timing belt breaks you will damage your valves. The later alluminum block 3.5L is not an interferance engine.
