Chirping noise when accelerating

If it is a belt noise, sprinkling baby powder on the belt will make the noise go away. Apply liberaly with engine off onto the belt and start the vehicle. The belt may have gotten coolant on it and this will cause the chirp. Also a defective belt tensioner will cause the belt to chirp

The a/c compressor has a slight squeak to it every time it rotates and it spins intermitently. Like one or two seconds apart. I've added sum refrigerant but nothing's changed. Sometimes it'll work fine...

When you put Freon in, there should be oil in the freon also. Usually says it on the bottles. Make sure it is not the belt making chirp sounds either. Loose belt can make them chirps or squeaks.

These rarely go out, you can find them all over the wrecking yards also if you need one.

I have a 2004 trailblazer and i am having a bad chirping noise from the belt and pulley area.I poured some water on the chirping stopped. is this a sign that the belt is the problem

Replacing the belt is the least expensive thing you can do to fix a belt chirp. I think the belt is around $30-$40 if I recall and takes just 5-10 minutes to swap out. Otherwise, you're looking at a pulley problem, or waterpump starting to go out, or the belt tensioner and so on....

1999 ford expedition make noise when idle but stop when pickup speed. make a chirping sound when idle .i check pulleys & belt (ok) disconnect belt but still make chirping sound

Might be your water pump. Check for drips of antifreeze
Usually the bottom of the pump has a weep hole and the 1st sign besides the noise is antifreeze dripping from the weep hole

I just got an estimate for $575 (+$50 parts) for

why are they changing that. If you are losing antifreeze, it should be the water pump they are changing. If it is the water pump, have the them change the timing belt if it has one(they are in there anyway). If it has a timing CHAIN, IT DOESNT need to be changed,ever. Dont be fooled by a dealer. Ask to see the bad parts. A water pump is circular shaped and looks like it has fins. A timing belt a just a long belt, like a fan belt. Hope this helps!

There's a chirping birdlime noise when the car is

Sounds like your serpentine belt is dried out.Replace your belt make sure belt tensioner is ok,or you can make sure that it is your belt by using a old candle or belt dressing that you can purchase from your local parts store.While engine is running VERY carefully touch the candle to the ribbed side of the belt and let the wax rub off onto the belt the squeak or chirp should change or go away.Or just spray the belt dressing on per the directions on the can.

Loud chirping sound

spray some wd40 on the pulley or you can spray belt dressing on the belt. It may be another pulley that needs a lubrication job

Chirping noise from engine compartment on 1993 Camry

Sounds like a drive belt. With the car off, rub each belt on the underside of the belt, one at a time, with wax from a candle or crayon.Cover the entire width of the belt and 10 to 12 inches of it's length then start the car. If it is the noisy belt it will change or eliminate the noise.Do this for each belt shutting off the engine each time.Change all the belts even if you find just one bad one as the others won't be far behind.

Chirp when starting

You probably have the same issue as many Sentra owners- bleed off of fuel pressure. This would cause a hard starting condition when the vehicle sits overnight. See TSB# NTB05-052a for the procedure. This is a dealer-only repair (parts are not available aftermarket).

As for the squeal, I've seen a LOT of this- the belts on these vehicles are less than excellent quality. The belts might look fine and some mechanics will say that they don't need to be replaced, but they are noisy and they can't be quieted up even by overtensioning them. Replacement is the only repair. Aftermarket belts can also be very noisy, so I would suggest Original Equipment (Nissan) belts.

Hope this is helpful!!!
