Readjust the Serpentine belt as the solution for the chirping sound. The check engine light could be a lot of things. Take it to the local Auto parts store and ask them to read the fault code for you. It is most likely the O2 sensor needing replaced and is an easy fix.

When i hit the accelerator there's a loud whinning or scretching noise coming from under the hood


hard to tell without actually hearing it..but could be a worn/ stretched serpentine belt, or a tensioner pulley. these vans are know when they get wet from puddles the belt slips off. theres an aftermarket fix for this which includes a double sided serpentine belt. ask your parts store for more information on this fix.

Misalignment of the belt, incorrect belt, worn or loose tensioner, Too tight of an adjustment (many service centers do this on purpose so when the belt breaks in it becomes properly adjusted, I do not believe in this philosophy), The belt is actually one long belt called a serpentine belt.....

It sounds like an idler pully needs replaced. The bearings are going bad. It is not hard to do this, but more than likely that is what it is. You should also replace the belt.

Whining sound from under van only when i push the gas.


The serpentine belt is the most common cause for whining sound when accelerating, try to understand if noise is coming from serpentine belt.

Also check power steering belt under steering column, and also the rotor and chain, thei do not make whining noise , but can make noise when accelerating.

The belt is first suspect.

Whinning sound


if the van has over 40,000 miles on it i would change the drive belt and make sure it has enough power steering fluld in it and check the transmission fluid as well
