On occasion s loud whistling noise is heard from under the hood. If decelerate it stops. Usually happens drive on an incline

you may have a belt slipping and when you go up a hill and put more strain on the engine the more it slips and causes the noise. I would check belts make sure none are loose or look extremely worn

Signs bad water pump

Most of the time when you hear a squealing sound when you accelerate, mainly when the engine is cold, this means the serpentine belt has stretched or cracked and will need to be replaced. You can check by spraying water on the the belt with the engine running, if the noise goes away, you will need to replace the belt with a good quality belt. Most of the aftermarket belts will make the same or similar noise.

2000 montero sport: There's a loud squealing noise coming from the engine. What could be wrong?

Squealing is most common with loose or worn belts, I would start by replacing the drive belt on the front of the motor and go from there, Its easier to troubleshoot a squealing motor if you know that the belt or belts are good.

Why does my car squill when I start it. it doesn't keep squilling only when I first start it

Maybe worn belts or belts maybe slightly out of alignment. Try rub a damp bar of soap on the inside of the belts WHILE ENGINE IS OFF. Do NOT try this with running engine, you will lose a finger or two.

The soap will lube it just a little and quiet it, at least for a while.

Engine noise on area of pulleys and sometimes engine tries to sto

Don't know if this helps. Had squeel in belt area. Occasionally engine would stop when squeel got loud and sometimes engine would try to quit while going at various speeds. Found tensioner pulley was bad and changed it. Still squeeled and engine would stop when squeel got loud. This time while sitting in yard. Further checking found binding in power steering pump. Will be putting on new one tomorrow. Hope it works. Will update.

My 2001 lhs has a high pitch noise

Check the belts and if they are over 4 years old, replace them. This is probably the issue.

Loud Sqeaul/screech from engine upon start up

could be your alternator. at start up. alternator usually has a big load because you just use your starter. it would recharge the battery and after a while the battery would be fully charge, the squealing noise will be gone.

check also all the belts if they are individual belts. use some belt dressings to eliminate the noise. sometimes the belt are just worn out and it would also make these noises.

tnx 4 using fixya,
