Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee
When i accelerate something in the engine bay squeals, Usually its when the air conditioning is on? Anyone else have this problem? and Thanks for the help if anyone can =]
Agree with first post (I just bought 99) with some minor squealing; replaced (more from a preventative standpoint as 99,000 miles on this vehicle I bought - two aftermarket (but reputable belts) made noises. I would note that though each of these two belts put on by Sullivan Tire (well known shop in Maine); and they suggested my ac compressor among other things, I took it to the Ford dealership who works on my Ford vehicle (and within minutes (and thankfull no charge) told me that this vehicle does not have an automatic tensioner but a mechancial one - and simply put when they put on my new belt (they did not tighten it as they obviously thought it was self tightening.
Once Ford tightened it squeak went a way (it was violently noisy); when you have AC it puts more of a load on your belt.
In short (it could simply be it needs to be tightended; if not then do get a new belt (but even Ford told me they would recommend a OEM (original equipment ... one ) for my next one for exact fit. Good luck.

I think you have a engine accessory drive belt problem, check the belt, is it cracked or shiny looking? if so replace it with a factory belt, they aftermarket belts many times fit poorly and make noise again very quickly.

I had this same problem, it was a faulty serpentine belt I had just replaced recently. The mechanic replaced it and now no problems!
