My car makes a loud squealing sound when i start it


Mary,

This type of problem is best checked by a trusted mechanic. I doubt you'd hear squealing noises from the crankshaft or harmonic balancer; but it is likely to be heard from a belt tensioner pulley, water pump (or other belt-driven devices under the hood - such as the alternator, power steering pump, etc.). A loose or slipping belt can also cause this noise.

Spraying WD-40 on the source of the squeal may quiet the sound - but not solve the problem that is causing it. By simply masking the problem with WD-40 instead of fixing it - you run the risk of the squealing part failing catastrophically - probably at the least desirable place and time.

For your own safety and convenience, have this problem checked and repaired properly.

Good luck!

What all has to be replaced when the crankshaft pulley? falls off


Did the crankshaft pulley separate from the harmonic balancer? No bolts missing? This happens once in a while. Just replace the harmonic balancer assembly (and probably the belt).

I have a Kia Sportage 4wd 2002 with under 60000 miles. I lost power steering and when I took to mechanic they said I threw a belt(which they replaced with great difficulty) due to a bent or warped harmonic...


I got stuck paying dealer for new crank pulley not harmonic balancer as mechanic said. I am driving as little as possible until part comes in and can br put on. Hopefully, I will not damage the crank shaft or throw a belt.

2001 chrysler Sebring.....loud Humming or squealing coming from underneath....brought to a mechanic, who first thought it was the tranny...Now says it is the rear differential..Anything else it could be?...


i HAVE A CHRYSLER SEBRING 2001 LXI LIMITED 3.O. MY CAR WAS MAKING A LOUD HUMMING OR SQUEALING WHICH TURNED OUT TO BE THE HARMONIC BALANCER AND A NEW POWER STEERING BELT HOWEVER IT COULD BE THE FLEX PIPE AS WELL OR THE SHIELDS THEY PUT AROUND THE FLEX PIPE THEY RATTLE AND SQUEAL... WHEN THE GET OLD OR DUE TO THE WEATHER CHANGES IF YOU LIVE IN CHI-TOWN BIG POSSIBLITIES THAT IT'S ONE OF THESE. THE HARMONIC BALANCER WILL COST ABOUT $130 AND FLEX PIPE REPAIR NO MORE THAT $80 LET ME KNOW IS THIS WORKS OUT FOR YOU.

GOOD LUCK! FOXY-KIM@HOTMAIL.COM
