Really bad screeching sound coming from drive belts

I bought and installed both drive belts in my 1992 Subaru Legacy yesterday and now there is a really bad screeching sound coming from that area. It made the noise before but it was not this bad. Any ideas?

Make sure the belts are tight. When you press firmly on the belt in the center of the pulleys it shouldn't flex more than 1/4".

Starts when cold


Sounds like a bad ignition system, if its firing poorly through your distributor once it warms up its not firing hot enough.

1992 subaru legacy 2.2 turbo rough idle fixes


Hi doesnt sound like anything major as long as it doesnt smoke bad or knock from the engine, it sounds like a decent service would help, try replacing the air filter, fuel filter, give it a decent oil change ( i use castrol magnetec in my part of the world), give the idle air control valve a good clean with mass airflow cleaner or similar. If thats dirty it may fix your problem when cleaned. The hot idle should be approx 500rpm and cold should be approx 1000rpm hope this helps

05 legacy sqealing sound when I'm stopped and turn


All symptoms of a loose or worn drive belt. As the belt wears, it develops slick spots that slip instead of grab. Since the main drive belt drives the power steering and alternator, this would be consistent with your issue.

Power steering problem


If the belt is loose, that would definitely give you that screech you are hearing...does the sound of the screech vary with the engine speed (in idle)? No matter...the belt should be tight enough that if you press down on the belt, it should move no more than about 1/8 of an inch...another thing you could do is get an aerosol spray called Belt Quiet (I think that's what it's name is), you can pick it up at any autoparts store; what that stuff does is lubricates the belt and pulley to reduce unwanted friction which could also be causing your screech.

As for the power steering pump, unless it was complete,ly dry, there is no need to bleed the pump. Cheers!

1992 subaru legacy wagon overheating


Sounds like a small leak at head gasket or Water pump going. Small leak on head gasket under idle will leak slow, But when under load will leak faster. Have a compresion check done on the cylinder to locate. Also you might want to try a presure test on the coolant system. Good luck and hope this helps to get you going again.

Info on replacing water pump on Subaru Legacy and how much work there is attached. Also on 1992 wagon is there a rotor for the spark or is there just a coil. Cheers Terry


The water pump is run by the timing belt.Involves the draining the antifreeze,removing the radiator/condensor fan motors,harmonic balancer,alt./ac./p.s. belts, timing covers and timing belt.Along with a new pump,a new timing belt should installed.Timing marks are critical and it should be repairer by a garage.Should take about 1 to 2 hours or so to do if everything comes apart easy.Also there is no cap or rotor,only a coil pak.Hope this gives you a better idea.
