If the squeek stops as the motor warms up replace it. You can also purchase some squeek stop spray and see if that helps before buying a new belt

not the water pump if the belt is removed. Maybe the alternator pulley. Some of the bearings go bad in the stock pulleys. I replaced my idler pulley for 25.00 bucks.

SOURCE: squeeking serpentine belt

Very quick fix: shoot a little talc powder on the moving fan belt and pulley... this is only temporary.. be sure to check all pulleys and tensioners for misalignment and or loosening or wear... take the fan belt off and spin all the pulleys and listen for bearing noise, and check for uneven wear on the pulleys.... all indications of something begining to wear out...

SOURCE: A squeeking type sound coming from the serpentine

Noise could be the result of a dried out belt, a belt that needs adjustment or any one of the pulleys driven by the belt. The oil pump has nothing to do with the belt. Inspect it and try tightening it up a bit. If that does not help, remove the belt and check all the pulleys for noise and rough turning, replace the belt and re-tighten.

Could be the bearings in the alternator, power steering pump, or a/c compressor. Try spraying penetraing oil in between the pulley and the alternator, power steering pump, and compressor one by one. If the squeaking stops. Replace that part.

Trying to change the serpentine belt and cannot loosen the tensioner. Tried to place a 1/2 drive in it but it just wouldn't fit. What to do next??


sounds like a frozen tensioner which causes horrible belt squeek.replace the tensioner as they will sometimes blow apart in the middle of nowhere.

It may be the water pump that is making the noise if the noise is constant.

Major friction/squeeking from serpentine belt!!!!


Keith,it sounds like you may need to clean the grooved surfaces on your pulleys,you could remove the belt and use some aerosol brake cleaner and a stiff brush to remove any build-up on the pulleys.you could also try spraying the same on the pulleys while the car is running,just be sure and wear eye protection and don't get to close to any moving parts.

Squeeking noise when i start the engine, with the engine cold


Probably serpentine belt to loose.
It is common. Have it checked.
Also can be water or oil getting on belt and it starts slippering and makes the noise.
Good Luck

Skeaky serpentine belt


are you positive the squeek is coming form the belt area?

the squeek can be from several other places, fan clutches can cause a high speed squeek, take the fan off and see if that cures it, the water pump front bearing can also be the culprit but that is hard to figure out without swapping in a new water pump, and lastly look at the AC compressor clutch, see if the squeek changes when you turn on and off the AC

hope this helps,

Power steering pump


your serpentine drive belt could be slipping over your power steering pump. Sounds like a premature failure from your pump. This is not an easy fix depending on the location of the pump itself. Remove your serpentine belt, locate the pump and pulley. Try to spin the pulley by hand. If there is alot of tension, your pump may need replacing. If not, try replacing the belt and check your belt tensioner for looseness.
