    Did you make sure you had the correct Pinion depth? what about your Carrier Bearings end play, correctly shimmed?

WHAT IS CAUSING THIS SQUEALING NOISE IN MY CAR?


Sounds like a dragging brake pad. There is an adhesive that can be applied between the calipers and the pads. Or it may be time for a rear end brake change.

WHAT IS THE LIKELY CAUSED OF A LOUD SQUEALING NOISE COMING FROM THE ALTERNATOR SERPENTINE DRIVE BELT SYSTEM ? IS IT THE ALTERNATOR OR SERPENTINE BELT?


serpentine belt is getting old and hard and the cold weather was causing it to slip
check belt condition ( small cracks across the grooves = scrap and get a new one) and check tension

Cold weather squeal


Check your belts and pulleys. Belts should not be cracked and pulleys should turn freely with no noise.

My 1999 ford explorer makes a squealing noise when I start it up until I push on gas or proceed to move...it will also occassionally make this squealing noise as I am driving..any Idea what this could


The squealing noise you describe is usually from a slipping belt. The belt tensioner may be faulty and not keeping the belt tight enough, the alternator is charging and putting a load on the belt when you first start the engine. If the belt squeaked constantly I would say the belt is glazed.

High squeal from engine area


i would suspect one of the idler pulleys, alternator bearings, water pump baring, you can isolate the location of the sound by using a short piece of hose, hold one end at your ear and with the engine running and the squealing noise evident carefully aim the other end of the hose at the deferment pulley locations, as you get closer to the noise source you will hear a marketable rise in noise you hear through the hose, careful not to get the hose caught up in the belt

While driving a squealing noise comes from the front glove box area, thought at first it was the blower motor but turned that off and it still persists, the squeal or wine gets higher pitched as the the...


you need to check the front brake pads to see if the warning tab is touching the rotor ,this will squeal if the pads get worn out before it goes metal to metal, and if that is ok the only thing i would think of is the wheel bearing,

My truck makes a banging noise going into second other than that it runs great.its a 1993 blazer


May want to check u-joints, if it is a ujoint or rearend if you pay close attention you should probably hear it clunk in other gears or maybe a squealing noise. The next places to look would be the transmission. Does it do this all the time or warm or cold?
