Short time belt squeal


hi

the squeal on a belt when the engine is started is a indication that it is loose and slipping

it needs to be tighten or at least changed, sometimes people squirt a little oil on it to lubricate it so it stops making that noise but it wont stop until tightened or changed

My 2004 kia sedona squeals when the heat or ac is on?

Can't find the source of the squeal


Year make and model ??
The belt could be glazed and slipping even if it is tight.
You could have a weak belt tensioner too.
The noise when the ac or heat is turned on can be the extra load from the ac compressor or the alternator. The compressor cycles on and off especially in defrost mode.
The load from the alternator is the first noise of the day. As the belt warms up it becomes better at handling the load of the accessories.
Even tho the belt looks fine, you may have to replace it to get rid of the noise.

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.

2001 kia spectra belt use to squeak and a/c worked (most of the time ) but now the belt isnt squeaking and the a/c or heater will blow? the a/c would come on sometimes if you hit a bump or reved the engine


sounds like you may need to look at the compressor under the hood and see if the wire on it is plugged in and make sure its not cut or broken. the squeak could be due to a loose belt try tightening it if it is possible
