    Yes, belt has been replaced, tension good. It is a 2000 Plymouth Voyager, 6 cyl, 3.0

    Remove the belt and spray clean the pulleys with brake clean, and give a little extra on AC compressor. Look real close for any coolant or oil that may be dripping on belt or pulleys. I'd wash the belt down in water and dish soap before putting it back on in case it has already become coated with something. If it squealed even right after new belt, then I'd double check that tensioner, have AC compressor checked for starting to seize possibly. I've also had bad luck with those Gator belts with notches, I always replace it with full ribs.

Does the a/c pulley turn when u turn on engine or when you turn on a/c?


the ac compressor has an electric clutch mounted on it , the outside of it the one the belt touches turns with the fan belt and everything else when ever the engine is running , the inside part the one that drives the shaft of the compressor moves only when it receives the electric signal from the dash switch for ac to run (there are a few other switches in the same pathway that could prevent it from receiving power too ) if your fan belt skids or squeals with engine running turn off your defrost/ac switch if it goes away then your ac compressor is most likely bad , if belt just continues to squeal then your belt and/or tensioner needs replaced

2004 Chrysler Voyager, had an acrid burning smell and a lot of smoke when heater is turned on, also a rattling/squealing noise, all stops when heater turned off?


you more than likely have a sciezed air con compressor. most modern cars have climate control which uses air con even when demisting and when engaged the electric clutch tries to engage but the pump itself will not turn, clutch will get red hot and burn your belts

Bad sqeel or screech w/defrost mode, when compresser is engaged. turned it to just heat it stoped


There are a couple of things that could cause this.

First, a worn belt can result n slippage and squealing when the compressor load is applied.

Second, a worn out compressor clutch can result in a metal-to-metal contact when the clutch engages. This will cause slipping and squealing.

Third, the compressor shaft could be locked up, so that when the clutch engages, the belt slips over the pulley and squeals.

Air conditioner


The squeeling is the belt because the air compresor is likely seizing. At idle it can't turn the compressor, in motionthe compressor probably turns and cools the air. Most air conditioners come on when the defroster is on.

When I turn on the rear defoster the engine squeals


This is your alternator belt squealing. The belt needs to be tightened or replaced. When the defroster comes on, it puts more load on the alternator causing the belt to slip.

I think the air compressor is bad in the truck


If your refrigerant level is OK and the truck blows cold air your compressor should be fine, in which case the noise is probably coming from the AC clutch which isn't too expensive or difficult to replace. If it doesn't blow cold air, switch the AC on and watch the compressor. If the clutch engages, but the compressor doesn't turn, the drive belt will squeal loudly and probably start to smoke. In that case it is the compressor which is expensive to replace. Most vehicles have an AC bypass that will temporarily cut out the compressor clutch under heavy load. If you are going uphill with the AC on or accelerating heavily you might notice warm air coming out of the vents for a short period until you let off the gas.
