Yes, any belt dressing only lasts for a little while. You need to resolve the issue(s). First, consider replacing the belt, eventually they get shiny and make squeaks. Look carefully for pulley alignment, if off jsut slightly, the belt does not lay correctly and causes noise. Sometimes you can rough up the offending pulley and keep the noise away for a longer while, use coarse sandpaper.

How do i replace the AC? and what do i have to have to replace it?


If your car has an adjustment for the belt, I would suggest you tension the belt a little more first. A slack or loose belt would also cause that problem

Engine screeches when running. revving the motor makes it stop momentarily


Could be a belt screeching. Fan belt, A/C belt, Serpentine Belt, alternator belt, etc. Easiest way to isolate which belt is to open the hood and use your ears to see where the screeching is coming from. Left, right, front, behind the engine? Spray some WD-40 on the belt you think is making noise and if it quiets right away, then that is the belt making the noise. Either the tensioner needs adjusting or the belt needs replacing. The WD-40 does not hurt the car, it'll start screeching again in a few days when it wears off.

2006 ford tauras i replaced batterie,alternator,and belt i have a noise coming for the bottom pulley while i spray wd40 around the bottom pulley only the noise stops what makes this pulley go out and how...


First, if you have sprayed WD-40 on your belt, your belt has been wrecked and needs to be replaced again. WD-40 will only soak into the belt and CAUSE it to slip and make noise.

Then you need to check the alignment of all the belt pullies. The tensioner pullies on many Fords can wear and sit a little out of alignment and cause the belt to rub sideways against the other pullies. Replacing the belt tensioner usually fixes it.

A/c clutch squealing bad. goes away when water is sprayed on it until water dries then comes back.


Hi,
With engine off, try spraying a little WD-40 between the clutch and pully. See if that helps. Ultimately, I would say the clutch bearing is going out. Mike

Getting a 'squealing' noise from the engine all the time. What is the cause likely to be??


Depending on the model it could be a belt alignment problem, loose belt or bad bearing in a pulley. If the squeal gets louder if you spray water in the area of the pulley it is most likely a loose belt. I would start by looking at the belt itself first then spray WD-40 in the bearing area of the Idler pulley and tensioning pulley. If the WD-40 works the problem is a bad bearing. Otherwise it is again, most likely, a loose belt. As a final check you can spray belt dressing on the belt and if the squeal goes away then it is your belt being loose. This could be caused by a belt being stretched over time or a tensioner not working correctly due to a weak spring, if equipped with spring loaded tensioner. If it doesn't have a spring loaded tensioner then you may just need to tighten the belt by adjusting it.

With the car running, spray WD-40 or equivilqant , one belt at a time when the noise goes away after spraying THAT belt is the culprit.....do first thing when starting car fo first time.

2006 kia sorento makes a squealing sound under


It is either the tesnioner or the belt....easy way to find out is to spray the pulley that has no grooves....that's the tensioner. Spray it with WD-40 or equivalent, in the middle of the pulley. That is the bearing housing. Spray only that first. Start the motor...if it goes away, then you have found your problem. Try not to spray the belt.

If it still squeals, spray the belt with the engine running. If it squeals, replace the belt.

Has anything been done to the motor recenlty? If so, one of the pulleys may be a little off-centered.

Let me know what you find.

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee squeaking and power steering


It very well could be the pawer steering pump. But to isolate the squeking sound, take that can of wd-40 and find the idler pully and tensior pully. Spray the bearing area of both pulleys. If your bearing in those pulleys are going bad then it will make that noise. If the wd-40 quits the noise at one of those tow pulleys then you know which one to replace. If its does not, then start looking to replace the powersteering pump. I take it you have checked the power steering fluid levels and they are ok?? Also, you stated that the noise started after you bought the alternator, then try a new alternator. It might of just been a faulty alternator. Happens all the time. One last inexpensive tip is replacing all belts with new. Belts get glazed over and dirty and cause noise too. One last question. Did you make sure the belts were tight enough? Just a little variance in the belt tension can make the difference.
