Question about Nissan 200SX

1 Answer

When I start the car there is a loud noise as if a belt is turning and it needs to be lublicated. However, after the car has ran for a while the loud noise goes away but when I turn the wheel there is a looseness in the wheel. I hope that I am explaining it correctly. Someone told me that it sounded like my power steering belt needed to be changed.

Yes it sounds like your power steering belt needs changed also you need to check the power steering fluid and the tension of the belt whereas the belt might be loose. If this is accomplished via a belt tensioner then the tensioner probably needs replaced also.

    Most power steering belts are now run from the same as the main belt called a serpentine belt get the 3 year belt otherwise you need to replace it yearly... follow the diagram under the hood should be located near the front top in plain view...

Loud screeching noise when I turn on a/c


Likely just to be the A/C belt. It may need an adjustment or replacement. With key out of car just smear a little bit of grease (not much) on the belt. Start the vehicle & turn on A/C. If noise gone or quieter the belt is the problem.

Loud knocking in motor and battery will not stay charged on 97 grand Jeep


Loud knocking noise like metal clashing,ran car with no oil,Big hole on the side of the block,all these come to mind.But maybe its just the drive belt that turns the alternator to charge the battery or the water pump bearing not allowing the drive belt to turn appropriately to charge the battery. Inspect the drive belt.

Loud noise coming from the engine check gauges light on ran hot would not start until last night started up but still has a loud noise like something is lose


If the engine ran hot [overheated] long enough then there may be some internal engine damage such as a scored piston or damaged cylinder head. If the engine was hot enough when it was shut off or stalled it may have had to cool down for a while before it would restart. You might get lucky and the noise is being caused by something simpler such as a water pump bearing or drive belt pulley. I'd start by checking both the oil and coolant levels then inspecting the water pump and drive belt for any faults. If the noise is coming from inside the engine then you'll most likely need to have a service facility take a look at it to see where the noise is coming from. Good luck, hope this helps!

Just replaced Serptine Belt now car making loud


It's not uncommon for a new belt to require re-tightening soon after it's been replaced. Check the belt for any excessive slack (shouldn't have more than 1/2 -3/4" ). A loose belt would be one possible cause for the loud noise you describe.
