Question about 1999 Plymouth Voyager
There are many possibilities for this noise. The pulley can be bad or the belt can be worn or its over tight or got bit loose or the belt and the pulley got dried up.-----
First thing you can try is spray bit water around the belt and pulley area,with hairspray and let it remain for few minutes then start/ run the vehicle and see if the noise is there.If the noise is still there then, --
I would suspect one of the idler pulleys, alternator bearings, water pump baring, you can isolate the location of the sound by using a short piece of hose, hold one end at your ear and with the engine running and the squealing noise evident carefully aim the other end of the hose at the deferment pulley locations, as you get closer to the noise source you will hear a marketable rise in noise you hear through the hose, careful not to get the hose caught up in the belt.-------- Other thing you can try is drop down the belt, and check each pulley, especially the steering pump.
To see if it is the belt or the bearing or tensioner, use a squirt bottle to squirt water on the pulley surface you suspect. If it quiets it momentarily, it is the belt. If it makes no difference, it is the pulley or more likely the tensioner. Watch the tensioner, that is 4" inch diameter pulley that is up top that goes to nothing but an arm, and gun the engine with your hand on the accelerator cable. You should see the arm flex that the pulley is on if it is working, if not it will squeal. You can replace it from the bottom with a 15mm wrench.---------- If the squeaking pulley pr pother part not replaced, the problem with increase and belt will get cracked and it needs to be replaced.
