2003 Saturn ion. Auto started cherping when radio is on, why?

does the chirping sound seem to come from the engine compartment? if so, turning on the radio may put a larger strain on the alternator. if your belt is old or the tensioner is going bad that extra strain could be enough to make the belt chirp.

I recently changed my oil and a couple of days later a tapping (Cherping) sound is continously sounding. It isn't the belt. what can it be

Check your oil level. Sometimes dry pushrods will squeek before they break. The noise comes from where the rocker arm meets the pushrod. Or if you are lucky, the PCV valve is not tight into the valvecover. The PCV valve can also make this sound on its own.

Check your oil filler cap for tightness. When checking your dipstick, start the car without the dipstick in place and see if the noise disappears.

Screeching noise coming from the drive belt is this common

When your drive belt becomes old and stretches so it is no longer tight enough the belt will make a loud squealing noise and will need to be replaced. While the drive belt is off during replacement, you or the mechanic replacing the belt will need to turn each pulley in the system that can be turned by hand to see if any of those are making a metallic noise also. If they make a metallic noise, they are worn out. It is common for a drive belt to wear out and cause this noise.

A cherping noise in the front of the engine

does it do it the cold and usually on the first start up and quick accelleration, if so its probably your fan belt needs tightening or better to replace, you can quite it down in the meen time by sprinkling some chaulk dust on it.

Rear end squeak

Noise is coming from a dry u-joint and or the carrier bearing if equiped. Usually a u-joint "cherps" in reverse first then only gets worse with time. If it starts vibrating at highway speeds replace them immediately.
