How to remove cover from 2008 jetta 2.5 engine

To resolve the squealing noise two things come to mind. Take an old bar of soap and hold it in a SAFE area with the belt turning which acts like a lubricant without the grease. If the belt is cracked the soap will fill in the areas and reduce or eliminate the noise. If that does not fix it you may have a loose or cracked pulley.

Squealing noise then tump when turning on heater 03 lincon navigator

Your AC compressor on the engine is the likely problem, either the pump is frozen up or the front bearing is frozen up, don't run the system or the belt will burn and fly off and strands you. Get this taken care of right away before winter. Have a local shop listen to the noise to confirm my guess as to the cause.

When I start up landcruiser, the belts squeals for a moment then it stops. but you can still here the belts movments. Is there anyway to fix the squeal and belt noise. Is there a way to calm down engine...

either tighten or change the belt if it looks damaged. a burnt bearing could be at fault, with the old belt on, mix some liquid soap with water, keep your face away or wear goggles, and pour the mix onto the belt at the pulleys like the alternator one, and you will find out that it stops squealing and you have found the source of the sound. fix whatever is broken and you won't have to raise you radio as much when you drive.
Enjoy !

My 03 saturn L200 is making a screeching sound when driven. What's wrong?

There is a spring loaded belt tensioner, when the spring gets old and loose the belt can squeal. The belt can get old and squeal, and a bearing in any of the devices being spun by the belt can get old and squeal. Keep your hands out of the belt area when the engine is running.

Loud chirping noise when acceleration pedal is

There is a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) for this problem:

Engine - Accessory Drive Belt Noise Diagnostics/Tool
08-06-01-008 03/27/2008
This particular vehicle had an issue with pulley alignment, particularly the power steering pulley. Take a look at the shaft the pulley is pressed onto. If the end of the shaft isnt flush with the pulley, it is out of line and will cause a squeal.

It is recommended that you discuss this TSB with your dealer (not local mechanic).

I hope this helps.

Windstar 2001 had it since new. over 120,000 miles suddenly started stalling cuople months ago had alternator replaced, bearings anything on the serpentine belt incl oil and water pump checked or replaced....

The problem with your van is the CAM Sensor, I believe the noise you are hearing is kind of a chirping sound. I just had mine fixed (12/19/09) it was about $150 for parts and labor from a local Mech. not a dealer.

Loud squealing sound in my engine

Try removing the belt and turning each pulley by hand. If everything is smooth and free, with the belt still off, drive down the block once and see if the noise is there (this will eliminate all rotating accessories on the front). If you hear the noise, then there is a problem deeper inside. Oil pressure is good? Dont' forget when doing this, you will have no power steering, so be careful.
