The most common cause of these problems is a loose slipping fan belt. For most cars the belt is held tight by a tension-er. This is a pulley that is spring loaded. Usually the tension-er applies the force to the back side of the belt. Tension-er has been known to stick and not flex with the belt allowing the belt to slip. Also if the belt is worn it can slip. Another possibility is that one of the accessories, on the belt circuit are having trouble rotating prohibiting the belt to operate freely. Careful inspection of the belt will determine its condition. With the hood open listen to the motor at idle and the sound of a squeaking belt is an indication that the belt is slipping. To test for the tension-er with the engine off try tapping in the direction of tightening the belt on the tension-er with a rubber mallet. Start the engine and observe if the condition is still the same. If it has corrected the problem than the tension-er either needs to be cleaned or replaced.

Hi I have 2009 twin turbo diesel land cruiser which is starting to overheat when idling

1. It might not be getting enough air through the radiator because the radiator is dirty, the fan isn't pulling enough air through because of a slipping belt, missing belt or bad fan clutch.
2. The coolant might not be transferring heat as much as it should due to deposits in the radiator, deposits in the engine or low coolant level.
3. The water pump impeller may be spinning on the shaft [not likely but it can happen] or the water pump pulley may be slipping on the drive belt.

Fan belt is squeling

First thing to check is see if the belt is slipping.. .If so is belt loose ?
test by pushing down. Excess movement = loose solution = tighten.
Does it slip on engine tickover ..or when engine is revved?

2000 Mitsubishi Montero Sport Squeals when vehicle starts. It stops when I think I hear the fan start. Also, If the heat/ blower are on with the lights,it dims the headlights and the fans intensity drops...

the squeal when you start is the drive belt, it is slipping on the alternate you have to remember that the starter is the largest load on the battery so when the engine starts the alternator goes into a full output mode so there is a lot of load on the alternator belt right after start up also this probably why you are having a low charge at idle the belt is slipping enough to allow the alternator to slip at low ingoing speeds, take a good look at the belt tensionor and the drive belt best guess is that you will need both a new belt and a new tensionor.......HAVE FUN

Have a 2000 jaguar s type, the check engine light comes on and sometimes flashes when car is put through car wash or it rains also will misfire and run rough and idle rough, what is the problem?

You have an exposed electrical source and/or a fan belt that is slipping when it get wets. When the belt slips, voltage drops and ignition is very voltage sensitive. Check you fan belt if it seems loose and or glazed (smooth)

My jeep liberty 2005 has a high pitch squeel when I first start it in the am. The squeel later returns when in idle but only periodically.

we call it the fan belt,it is loose enough to cause it to slip(squeel)whenn cold it just needs adjusting.(the 1/2 inch wide belt that drives the alternator).

I have replaced the fan belts and my '95 mx3 squeels in gear and I can smell rubber but everything is moving when idle.

One or all belts aren't tightened enough.
The squell is a belt slipping.
It does it in gear because there is more drag then.
Smelling rubber either because they are new belts, or the belt is way to loose.
