Squeaky noises under the hood


IT COULD BE AN IDLER, TENSIONER, OR THE BELT SLIPPING, THESE ARE SEALED YOU CAN'T LUBE THEM. IT SOUNDS LIKE THE BELT IS SLIPPING, BUT IT COULD BE SLIPPING BECAUSE OF A FAULTY IDLER\TENSIONER. REMOVE THE BELT, MAKE SURE ENGINE IS SHUT OFF, AND YOU HAVE THE KEYS, ROTATE ALL THE PULLEY'S AND THE ALTERNATOR PULLEY THEY SHOULD ROTATE FREELY AND RUN TRUE, AND NO ROUGH FEEL TO THEM, OR THE TENSION COULD BE TOO WEEK TO KEEP THE BELT TIGHT.

Chirping noise coming from engine compartment in my 2006 ford expedition 120k, chirps are 2 to 5 minutes apart


Chirping noise under the hood is a classic symptom of a loose or bad belt. Has the serpentine belt been replaced? At 120k miles, I'm sure it is glazed and/or brittle. Check also if there are any other belts, note their condition and replace if necessary.

(1999 pontiac grand prix 3100 v6) how do I remove and replace my serpentine belt successfully?


Instructions Things You'll Need
  • 3/8-inch drive breaker bar
  • Metric socket kit
  • New serpentine belt
    • 1

      Park the Pontiac in a safe work area and open the hood.

    • 2

      Inspect the top of the black plastic cover that surrounds the fan for the serpentine belt routing diagram. This diagram has the instructions for installing the new serpentine belt around the accessory pulleys.

    • 3

      Inspect the front of the engine and locate the automatic belt tensioner. The tensioner on the 1999 Pontiac model vehicles is located between the alternator and the crankshaft pulley. The tensioner has a pulley on one end with a bolt head in the center of the pulley. Use the bolt head to rotate the tensioner.

    • 4

      Turn the tensioner counterclockwise with the breaker bar and a metric socket. Pull the belt out from under the tensioner pulley with your other hand. Then, slowly let the tensioner retract until it stops.

    • 5

      Pull the belt out of the other remaining pulleys. Then, pull the belt out of the engine bay and lay it on the ground.

    • 6

      Route the new belt around the crankshaft pulley. Then, route the new belt around the other remaining pullleys by using the serpentine belt routing diagram for instructions.

    • 7

      Rotate the tensioner pulley counterclockwise with the breaker bar and socket. Then, slide the new belt under the tensioner pulley. Slowly let the tensioner retract until it stops. The tensioner pulls all of the slack out of the belt and brings the new belt to the proper tension. Remove the breaker bar and socket from the tensioner pulley.

    • 8

      Inspect the new belt to ensure that it is seated inside of all the accessory pulleys as directed by the diagram. Then, crank the engine and allow it to run for about 15 seconds. Turn the engine off. Inspect the belt again once more to ensure that
      the belt is still around each pulley. Close the hood.

Serpentine belt routing


Hi,

The detailed solution provided below will be of great help to you,just follow the steps carefully;

1.Raise the hood of your Subaru and support it with the prop rod. Locate the negative battery cable at the negative battery terminal. Remove the retaining bolt from the battery cable end with a wrench and separate the cable from the terminal.
2.
Find the serpentine belt tensioner on the front of the engine and place a socket on the apex bolt in the center of the idler pulley. Attach a breaker bar to the socket and rotate the tensioner clockwise until the belt is loose, then remove it from the pulleys. Rotate the tensioner back to the home position and let it sit there for now.

3.
Install the new serpentine belt over all the pulleys except the tensioner pulley. It is important that the belt follow the correct path over the pulleys. If you are unsure of the path, look for the sticker under the hood with the belt-path diagram on it.

4.
Rotate the tensioner clockwise far enough to install the belt around the pulley on the tensioner, then slowly rotate the tensioner back to the home position. The tensioner will tighten the belt correctly and no adjustment is required.

5.
Install the negative battery cable back on the negative battery terminal and install the retaining bolt. Tighten the bolt with a wrench, then close the hood.

Problem solved,

Good luck!!

Rubber smell chirping sound smoke


I am assuming that the smell, smoke and chirp are from under the hood.
That would be a pulley locked up, most likely the serpentine belt tensioner.

Change serpentine belt and tension pulley and idle pulley and


could be the alternator, water pump
take the belt and spin all the pulleys and listen for noise and make sure they turn smoothly
another trick is to take a can of wd40 or equivalent and spray the bearings 1 at a time till the noise goes away or quiets down

Can a alternator PULLEY make a chirping noise?


It's possible that the alternator is making the chirp noise (bearing) but I would try this first. Start the engine and allow the engine to idle and open the hood and take a spray can of WD40 and shoot a short burst onto the bottom side of the belt and pulley. Dont spray allot as this will cause the belt to slip. The WD40 is to lube the pulley grooves and belt a slight bit. Hope this works!
