If your final drive belt is making a "sqeaking" noise when you accellerate or shift gears, it's not tensioned correctly. It's too loose.

Good Luck

Noise when accelerating


a drive belt may be loose or going bad! you can buy a can of belt dressing at any auto parts store. just spray on drive side of pulleys while running. if belt is slipping on pulley, it will calm down. but if it does not stop making noise, replace belt or tighten it. be very carefull when car is running. good-day!

When I start the car there's a loud sqeeking noise that goes away after 1 minute 2003 es 330


if it was mine, I would buy some "fan belt dressing spray" and spray my fan belts or have them adjusted. first spray them once, if sound stops a few days, have the tension adjusted. if spray does not work the first time, this is not the problem.

Was driving down the road heard a high pitch squil engine staled 2002 Ford Escort ginding noise tuns over but won't start


This could possibly be a timing belt issue. In some cases the water pump will lock up, which is driven by timing belt on Escorts, and strips or breaks timing belt. This can be determined by removing the top center cover at front of engine and checking the belt.

Fan belt is making noise.


If your fan belt is squealing and changes pitch when you accelerate or let off the gas or squeals at first then tapers off, then it is slipping. If it is slipping you could replace the belt (probably a good idea considering the age of the car), or as a temporary fix you can spray the belt with belt dressing. Belt dressing is only a few bucks at any local auto parts store and comes in a spray can. Follow directions on the can.

If it is a different type of noise like a grinding or rattling noise, it could actually be a pulley or any of the devices the belt is used to drive, these can include power steering, AC compressor, idler pulley or water pump to name a few.

My best advice is to replace the belt, and toss the old one in the trunk as an emergency spare. The belt should cost under $20.00 and is money well spent as it is cheaper then being stranded and needing to be towed.

My car is making this squeaking noise wen i start it. then wen i drive it for 20 min it gose away? people have told me that its my pulley or my elt idk which one it is??????


With the car running, spray WD-40 or equivilqant , one belt at a time when the noise goes away after spraying THAT belt is the culprit.....do first thing when starting car fo first time.

A whining noise coming from the pulley system


Whines and squeaks are usually from worn belts. Spray belt dressing on power steering, a/c compressor, and alternator belts When belt noise goes away on particular belt check for fraying and cracks. Relace belt and adjust belt tension as noted.

Be carefule of hot parts and rotating/moving belts and pulleys.

If its a whine, most likely the bearings on the idler pulley or the bearings on the ac compressor clutch.
-To trouble shoot with engine running and ac on spray wd40 on bearing area of clutch then wait a few seconds to see if sound goes away. If not then try bearing area(behind bolt of pulley) of idler. This will work as temporay fix, but ultimatly you must replace bad bearing.Do NOT spray on belt or pulley surface.

If its a squeal could be the belt is loose and needs to be replaced or dressed.
-Belt dressing can be spray directly on belt while engine is running and ac is on.
