Question about Cobra 18 WX ST II 40-Channels Base CB Radio
During cold starts, there's a squealing noise from under the hood. It only lasts until the car warms up. I'm thinking it's the fan belt, but I'm not really sure. Can't fix what I don't know.
It sounds like the serpentine (fan belt) is slipping and causing your squeal. If you haven't replaced it for a while you could be in need of a new one. When they get old the rubber gets hard and stretches.When you hear the squeal the belt is slipping and the friction from this causes heat and warms the belt and makes it stickier and it will then stop slipping. If your battery is being drained while the car is off or if you need to crank it for an extended period of time the extra strain from the alternator bringing the system back to proper voltage can also cause this as well.But replacing the belt is the first place to start.
hope this helps!
