Not sure what engine, but belt may be adjustable, if so , have it tightened, or replaced if needed.

AC belt squealing. Lost it on the road. Replaced it and tension pulley. Still squeals.


Sounds like the compressor is seizing up or a idler pulley bearing has failed.

My ac is only cold when I am driving, my heat is only hot when I am driving, not getting cold air or hot air in idle position?


So many mechanics, so little consensus. Sounds pretty common.
I can't say as to why hot and cold only when moving, but it sounds like a weak performing system.
As for the squealing, I would suggest removing one belt at a time, and see if one eliminates the squeal. That would be the problem belt or pulley or component. Also, if you have any idler pulleys (a stand-alone pulley) on the belt system, be sure and check them as well. Spin them without the belt on, and see if they make any noise.
It would seem you need a mechanic who is willing to spend some time with you on this to find the problem. When you find a good one, you will know it by his output, and make yourself a regular customer. Good luck.

At start up I have a loud squeal on my 99 Mazda 626. Both belts are new and so is the alternator. The squeal only last for about 10 secs or so and goes away. I have started it in neutral and the squeal is...


Does your car have air conditioning.? Most cars use the A/C compressor to dry the air for the defrost. It will also come on for a short time when you first start the car. With the engine running after the squeel has stopped , try turning the A/C on , If the squeel starts again , then I would think your A/C compressor is seized. Also . are you sure the 2 new belts are tight enough?

Hello, My 95 Isuzu 3.2L V6 has a fan belt squeal on start up. It happens in hot and cold weather and quietens down as a blower or something in the engine catches up and comes on line. I cannot find a...


Hi:
I would suspect that the problem is your alternator belt is not tight enough. You can't judge it by just eyeballing it, as when the alternator needs to charge the battery or when you initially start the car, it has quite a load on it, and often slips for a bit if the belt isn't tightened to the proper amount. there is a tension guage that shops use, but you could tighten it up a bit and see if it helps, and go from there. too tight is bad too, as it can cause premature wear on the tensioner and alternator bearings.

Loud squealing noise


The noise is most likely the serpentine belt. Check it's condition and that of the belt tensioner. It sounds like the belt is slipping, causing the squealing noise u describe. As the belt warms up, it's getting a better 'grip' and the noise stops. Turning on the heat also turns on the a/c in newer cars, this added drag on the belt (one more component to turn, the a/c compressor) would explain why it happens when u turn on the heat. Is the belt original? If yes, it's time to change it, and check the belt tensioner to make sure it's doing it's job of keeping the belt snug on all the pulleys. Let me know how u make out.

The high side psi. should be at least around 100# ps more than the low side psi. The low side psi sounds ok, but the high side tells you the problem is the outside condenser is plugging up! Go to an ac supply house,and buy a gallon of coil cleanner and dilute it and fully clean the outside condenser coils ,after it's cleaned ,check the charge now!
