First you have to locate the source of the noise. If the there is any noise during idling you can locate the noise source using a long screw driver touching the engine with the tip, and listening at the holder of screw driver. A needle stethoscope can do a better job, and cost you less than $10. If the squealing noise comes from the engine compartment for one minute or so, when you start engine, might be the loose belt which has to be replaced. If this is right then you have to replace the timing chain too.
Might be anything, a bad bearing at belt tensioner, at AC compressor or anything else. It is a good idea to locate the source of the noise first. Hope this will help to narrow the problem.

SOURCE: 2000 Chevy Malibu making knocking sound when AC is on

Is it noisy with only the blower fan on or does the A/C have to be on to get the noise.
Try using the heater only and see if the noise is present.
Let me know.
Regards,

My 92 chevy blazer is making a loud squealing noise sounds like my belts but its not that I've replaced the belt and the tensioner what else could it be?


Bearings in Alternator, water pump, power steering pump or even a squeal from Vacuum line, EGR diaphram or similar. Check power steering fluid level.



Now when you replaced the tensioner, did you notice more pulleys that were just "there" and not connected to anything? These are idler pulleys and are helpful in routing the belt. They have bearings too!

Pleae rate my info.

99 Chevy Malibu belt chirping noise problem.


one or more of the pulley's is defective, most likely the tensioner pulley, but check them all for wear and side to side movement which indicates a worn bearing, this causes the belt to not run true and chirp.
