My Holden Barina (2001) makes a rattling noise emitting from the right hand side of the engine. It gets louder when I accelerate. Yesterday I lost all power after only driving it for 1km. The oil level is...

Check all of your belts and pullies. Sometimes it helps to remove the belts and turn the pullies by hand. Also run the engine without the belts for a few seconds. If the noise is still there, then it is most likely timing components rattling.

I have a screeching noise when I start my 2001 kia optima. My belt that I see is tight and I see no leaks of oil getting on it. I have checked the power steering fluid.

Hi Julie,

If your belt only "screeches" when you first start your engine, the problem is most likely to be related to either your alternator or your air conditioner. Sometimes the bearings in these things start getting worn and cause excess resistance to rotation and will cause a screaching noise that goes away once they are moving. This usually also causes "glazing" on the belt.

Look at the ribbed side of the belt. If it looks "shiny" rather than just a dull black, this is glazing. It may not be necessary at this time to replace anything like the alternator or the air conditioning compressor, but I would recommend replacing a glazed belt and do a THOROUGH check of your pully assemblies while you have the belt off.
Spin all of the pullies (including the tensioner and idler pullies) by hand with the belt off. You should not be able to "hear" them spinning. Any pully or component that feels rough or has a rough or rattling sound when you spin it by hand should probably be replaced.

I have a rattling sound up towards my belts. kinda sonds like a ceased barring. near my alternator

The best way to find the noise is to remove the belt
and check each pully by hand. If a pully locks up it
will make more of a screeching sound. A rattle sound makes me think your idler pully is loose.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
