If your belts are in good shape and tension is proper, you should take off the belts and srin each pulley or tensioner that turns with the belt. I think that you will find that a bearing is going bad. Try to do this when the engine is cold for that will usually make the noise more pronounced.

My belts are making a screaming noise when i start car sometimes and while driving sometimes I have a 1991 ex accord honda,


If in fact they are doing it sometimes, but not all the time, this is indicating worn out belts, and they need replacement.
Belts can look good, but can slip and squeal when they get hard and brittle.
I, too, have had that experience with my Hondas.
If the belts did it all the time, you would look for a defect in of the components that the belt is driving. ( Water pump, a/c compressor, idler pulley, power steering pump, alternator, etc.)
God bless your efforts.

Screaming noise from ac no cold air


It sounds to me that your belt or tensioner is worn, if the noise goes away when the ac is off then it is just the belt slipping, it takes a lot of power to run the compressor and if the belt is worn it most likely slipping on the pully when you engage the clutch.

Squeeky fan belt noise after driving a little


It sounds as if the belt is dry. Belts dry out after a certain amount of time and then start to make chirping noises. If the belt is not badly cracked, you can try using a belt lubricant spray. These sprays usually only last for a short period of time, though.

Sounds like a rotating electrical device not connected to the drive belt, like a rad fan. Not sure if this engine has a vacuum pump, but that could also be what's making the noise.

I have a 2005 Scion XA and I am experiencing a noise when I turn on the fan wanting to kill the engine, sqweaking and engine light came on. it lurches forward barely made it home at 45mph. belts seem...


Sounds like you have an air conditioning compressor tying up. The compressor does not engage when the fan is turned all the way off. If you turn your heater control away from the ac setting (keeping in mind the ac comes on automatically when in defrost mode) and it does not have those symptoms, that is where your problem is.

Screeming noise when starting car


Hi,

This is more common with a loose belt than the alternator itself. Check the tension of the belt as a first measure. Also check the general condition of the belt. If it looks frayed or perished get it replaced.

Thanks for using FixYa.

91 S-10 it has a high pitch scream


It sounds like a worn or loose fan belt. It's slipping on the pulleys causing the screeching noise.

When starting up the Kia, screaming belts sound is heard


I'm not sure if its the same thing but when this 'screaming' happend to my Sportage it was the CV joints and a $400 fix. nothing to do with the engine or belts.
