    I also have a chirping noise around the pulley for the power steering unit. Is it the power steering unit or just the belt/tensioner?

No don't give your money to the dealer. Many parts stores sell the tensioner . Most likely your tensioner is worn out and not tensioning the belt properly.

I have a 2003 Dodge Neon SXT. We just had the oil changed and now it makes an intermittent chirping noise when underway. It did this once before after an oil change, but the noise eventually went away. ...


Odds are it could be your engine belts slipping. If it is only intermittent then it is really nothing to worry about, but it is slightly annoying. Make sure your belts have enough tension, if not tighten them. If so, you may pick up a can of belt dressing at an auto parts store an follow the directions on it. Basically you spray it on the belt to quiet the chirp.

Fan belt is making noise.


If your fan belt is squealing and changes pitch when you accelerate or let off the gas or squeals at first then tapers off, then it is slipping. If it is slipping you could replace the belt (probably a good idea considering the age of the car), or as a temporary fix you can spray the belt with belt dressing. Belt dressing is only a few bucks at any local auto parts store and comes in a spray can. Follow directions on the can.

If it is a different type of noise like a grinding or rattling noise, it could actually be a pulley or any of the devices the belt is used to drive, these can include power steering, AC compressor, idler pulley or water pump to name a few.

My best advice is to replace the belt, and toss the old one in the trunk as an emergency spare. The belt should cost under $20.00 and is money well spent as it is cheaper then being stranded and needing to be towed.

Squeaky noise from my belt area. I sprayed dressing on it and I believe its worse. I understand that you can't tighten belt?


It may not be the belt, but it could be a bad bearing on the Alternator. If the belt is loose, it could be a bad Belt Tensioner. The Tensioner is what keeps the belt tight.

How can i stop my AC belt from making noises when my AC is on


The reason your belt is making a noise is either your belt is worn and needs replacing or the belt tension is out of adjustment and needs checking and adjusting.
It is a good idea to replace it anyway specially if the belt has small cracks on the inside.

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.

U must clean all that belt dressing off (use a product called Brake Clean) and then replace the belt, also make sure none of the pulleys have bad bearings and the automatic belt tensioner is working right, this will correct your noise. Belt dressing is NEVER to be used on serpintine belts like the one used in your truck.

Squealing noise under the hood


No, The fan clutch will not make a Noise it will just not catch the Fan to Cool. It is the Belt. Make sure that it is Tight. You may have a Bad Belt Tensioner if it is not.

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.
