I'd be looking at rear u-joints and or driveshaft hangar bearing (support that hangs from frame that supports driveshaft) Both can make some strange sounds prior to failing.

ACCELERATING ISSUES & SQUEALING/LOUD SQUEAKING SOUND UNDER HOOD WHEN I TURN ON CAR


take it back to the guy who did the job and have him adjust the drive belt for the alternator and power steering as that will be the most likely cause of the squealing . If it is an automatic have the fluid level checked . Have the fault codes read and have him fix any sensor problems.

Loud squeaking/ squealing noise when turning wheel


Have you had your wheel bearings checked. With the front wheels straight, back up about 50 feet then pull forward about 50 feet. You will need to do this on level ground. Then from about 25 feet in front of and behind see if any of your wheels look like they are tilting in at the top. If so jack that wheel off the ground and see if it moves in and out at the top. If so its likley the wheel rubbing aginst the backing plate of your disk brakes. Let me know what you find

Squeaks or Squeals. If it squeals then you should check all of the drive belts on the engine for tension.

Toyota Tercel belts are squealing


I have been having the same problem with the alternator belt squealing, most noticeably, when using the heater fan , accelerating, turning the headlights on. I have a 1997 Toyota Tercel CE 1.5L 4cyl with no A/C. I just tightened the belt tight enough that there is no give to the belt and it does not squeal anymore.

I also used a Goodyear Gatorback from Napa belt which seems to be nice and quiet when tight enough.

Hi, My name is Hunter, Got in my truck its a 1997 chevy k1500. Its been sitting for a week in a parking lot. When I accelerate I hear a noise. It comes in around 13-15mph and is very random after...


Possible that it can be due to belt slippage , mainly the fan belt. Stop the engine and check the belt PLAY, if this is more remove the fitting bolts of the tensioner and adjust the tension of tehbelt to tighten it further.
Now if there is still noise coming out while it accelerates then the clutch, brakes or wheel bearings need to checked.

1997 Saturn SC2 squeals very loud the first 3-5miles


Try replacing the belt tensioner. Comes out easily, once you figure out access to it. Remove inspection panel inside front passenger side wheel well. Tensioner is right there, two bolts. If the spring gets weak, the belt will squeak.

Squeak in low gear.


Try spraying the belt with a "dressing" spray. With the engine not running of course. If it stops, then your belts may need adjustment or replacement.

1997 s10 2 wheel drive truck. 4.3L v6 makes a loud noise as the car accelerates fast or under load. When running 55 I can release the gas pedal and the noise is not audible. I can put the truck in neutral...


Your noise sounds like it is power train related,If you have eliminated the engine,Since it doesn't make the noise while moving and in neutral.
It sounds like a universal joint in the drive shaft.Do you notice a vibration
along with the noise?
