Bear tracker squealing noise when trying to start after running it goes away help please it sat for a year before got rear end fixed


Joe, do you mean a bearing track?
If so, a bearing -or track - usually makes a grinding or knocking noise, not a squealing noise.

If a car stands for a long time the brake rotors can corrode a bit and the pads can stick. Sometimes, when the car is first used after standing, you may hear a rubbing or squealing noise from the wheel. That's the pads sticking to a rusty rotor. The noise may wear off after a few miles when the pads 'polish' the corrosion off the rotor.

The other thing that causes squealing from a wheel are the brake shims. Try cleaning things first.

My honda crv is making a squealing noise when i reverse my car. This noise stays a bit then it goes away. My brother was driving my car and said he things my bearing/bearings are going but he doesn


This is probably the wear indicators on the brake pads,pull the wheels and take a look.(Toyota also designs the pad wear indicators to work in reverse,so they will continue to squeal louder and louder as the wear increases.)

My 99 accord's wheel squeals while driving but stops as soon as i press the brakes. Sometimes the noise will stop after driving a few miles but other times it wont make the noise at all.


have your brake pads checked out, often they are so close to finnished that they make a noise when not applied, as soon as you apply them they press on the last bit of padding left and the noise goes away.

Brake Shoe Self-Over-Tightening?


Type of brake shoes there using, the more metallic compound on the shoe will make them Squeal and just takes time for the brake shoes and drums to wear there self to a point where they will not squeal any more. The high Metallic brake shoes will last longer but make more noise, I did a break up grade on my Jimmy with ceramic brake pads and vented rotors. At first before there were broken in, stopping distance was bad and brakes was loud, but now it's like dropping an anchor LOL. Keep me posted and give it a few miles of stop and go traffic.

Just replaced belt and alternator. Engine squeals very loud when started. What should I check next? belt tension seems good.


Sounds like the new alternator was run without first fully charging the battery (12.3 - 12.8 volts)
This will destroy an alternator every time -- the classic symptom is a squealing belt.

Squealing NOISE possibly from fan belt


Belts stretch from new. Try to tighten them again. Hopefully the are not glazed or this may stay with you.
