The sqeeking could be caused by your idler pulley or you belt adjustment pulley. these are free spinning pulleys that your belts go around, take your belt off and check these other pulleys by spinning them by hand, check for loose or noise when you spin them by your hand..if they are making noise now, it is a warning to get them fixed before thay freeze up. Because when they freeze up they can cause alot of problems, the belt will burn off the pulleys and you will be stuck and not able to do anything until you fix it. You will have no water pump,power steering,and alternator if it goes out on you on the road in the middle of nowhere..So check it out right away..

My ford freestar keeps cutting off when starting.

It sounds like what mine does. After it dries out it will run again. Idols at over 2000 in nuetral, when nuetral idol goes back to normal everything should work again.Pretty sure its in the PCM. There is a safety bulletin out on it, not a recall. I blow heat on mine for a couple of days and it will do fine for a while. Did it today and hasn't rained for more than a week?

Why does my fan belt on my 2002 ford taurus keep coming off

You may have a idler or pulley that is getting a bad bearing and throwing the belt. The belt can stretch some but if they do most will squeak or not cool the engine and you will see the engine temp go up when it is slipping and then when it catches the temp will go back down.

Sounds like maybe a belt is loose, but they are all tight. Sound goes away after the yukon warms up

Try putting a new belt on, maybe better brand of belt, they do make belt stop sqeek but its not worth buying. Belts can make noise when cold, check to see if maybe your belt skipped a notch.

Why has the timing belt jumped again less than 3 weeks after being replaced?

My belt did the same. The problem was, the tension pulley was damaged on the first belt change.
Hope this helps.

1997 f150 4.6ltr engine has just been rebuilt. I drove it for a week everything was fine. engine began hesitating at idle and stumbles upon acceleration. oil pressure gauge fluctuating at idle. missfire...

Check for a vaccum leak at the intake. Spray a bit of starting fluid in this area with the engine at idle. This engine will speed up a bit when you hit the spot! Replace the gasket or put the hose back on. Way you go! Frankster016
