I assume that the noise is there even when the engine is idling, check the idler pulleys and drive belt tensionor.

Car Makes Screeching Noise When Turned On With Ac On


This is very typical of a slipping A/C compressor drive belt. Inspect the belt for fraying and cracking and renew it if needed. Check the tension and make sure it is correct, and in a new one recheck after about 4 wks. It should deflect about 1 cm in the middle of the longest span with a firm push.

You can put some soap or drylube wax on the contact surfaces of the belt but that is temporary. Do not use petroleum products like WD40.

Screeching sound remains


Your AC pump is starting to faiL. It's starting to bind and putting heavy back pressure on the belt causing it slip and screech. After the car cools off inside, the load on the AC compressor is lower and the sound will die down. Also when the belt gets hot it gets a little more flexible and grippy which also lowers sound.

Take it to an auto AC repair place and have it checked.

Belt problem?


sounds like the AC compressor may be defective and pulling an excessive load on the engine. You should also have the automatic belt tensioner checked

My serpintine belt started making a loud screeching noise, and eventually slipped off. I got it put back on but its still making a screeching noise. All of this started after i got the AC compressor fixed....


One of the belt pulleys likely has a bad bearing. watch the pulleys for binding while it's running or remove the belt and check each pulley by hand. AC puts more strain on the belt...if the belt is not new and pulleys check out, (and tensioner is working properly) change the belt.

I have a very loud squealing noise in my 2003 mazda mvp engine when i accelerate. We removed the belts which would eliminate belts as the problem. And that's that it. If anyone has any info please let me know.
Thank you
