    did you try running the engine without the belts,only for a minute,to make sure that the noise is coming from the belts?the belt tensioner mechanism may be worn out and isnt tensioning the belt like it used to,let me know

    Look on YOUTube there is a video for diagnosing the squealing EXACTLY. Pulley alignment was my problem

2001 escape squealing noise when engine is under presure


Use a mechanic's stethoscope to locate the culprit sqeal. Have a technician rev the engine, in order to produce the squeal. Lay the stethoscope tip utop the water pump, nearest the armature. Locate squeal in this fashion against the idler pulley(if applicable), the alternator, the air conditioner compressor, power steering pump (if applicable), the cam shafts (if applicable), and finally the crank. This will help isolate the location of the squeal.7_20_2012_9_07_34_pm.jpg

Without hearing the squealing the only things I could suggest would be the other rotating components in your system like the AC compressor/Water pump/ Power Steering pump. Could also be a bad tensioner. Hope this helps, good luck

My 2001 cavalier shuts off when i turn on the AC


it's probably a bad compressor, might be locked up and when the clutch engages, the pully stops spinning causing the squealing noise and extra resistance when trying to start -- you might be ruining your serpentine belt while this is going on, might want to check the condition of that as well

Squealing fan belt.


New belts tend to stretch after a week or two.Simply retighten the belt now that it has settled in & it will be fine.Was it the alternator belt?That is the most common one to sqeal after replacement.Hope this helps you.
