Noise like a twitter like a fan belt - 2001 Toyota Celica

Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Answers :

Take a pint of brake fluid and by the cap full, pour the fluid on each acsessible pulley and on the back of the belt/belts. This should stop the noise. Make very certain NOT to start the engine until the hood is fully latched closed. Brake fluid is a very powerful paint stripper. I found out the hard way, don't do the same!!! Good luck. Dana

Got into the truck yesterday and it was making some noises LIKE a squeeling fan belt, but it wouldn't subside with time as squeely belt typically does. Got out, popped the hood (engine still running).....noise DOESN'T quite sound like a sqeely fanbelt (as I would expect w/ hodd up, etc.) There is a tiny bit of rattle in the fan......way back when I had a '77 Toyota P/U, when the water pump went out, the fan had a lot rattle in it. Would the '03 rattling fan be indicative of a failing water pu

2000 toyota celica is making a grinding noise by the belt like theree is a bearing going bad but if I spray some belt dressing on it it will go away for couple hours..

We replaced the fan belt in a 1994 Toyota 4Runner and there was still a loud screeching noise and it doesn't seem like the top pulley is turning.


Sounds like the pulley bearing is bad and has failed -- remove the belt and try and turn the pulley by hand. if it does not turn ' freely ' and smooth, then replace the pulley.\015\012\015\012c... ... Toyota 4Runner

I have 2003 Passat with 140K on the clock, 8 months ago it developed a screeching noise turning the wheel left and right when stationary like the belt was screeching. The garage could not see a problem, until 3 months later when my Fan belt snapped and nearly wrecked my engine. I had a new Fan Belt, Cam belt etc.. sorted by mechanic, but the problem has reared its ugly head again recently, i am worried it is going to snap the fan belt again...anybody know what the problem is? Thanks in advance!


The screeching noise could be rubber deposits on the belt pulley or pulley bearings for the power steering pump BUT its also a big clue that the timing belt tensioner is about to give up...CHECK BOTH please..... ... 2003 Volkswagen Passat

Sounds like fan belt noise but, the fan belt looks solid..no cracks etc...doesn't scream on start up..it seams to be a steady sqweak emitting from the fan belt area. Bearing problem?


If your belts are in good shape and tension is proper, you should take off the belts and srin each pulley or tensioner that turns with the belt. I think that you will find that a bearing is going bad. Try to do this when the engine is cold for that ... 2001 Ford Taurus

2005 elantra gt - I live in Philly and the temp is about 20. I was out driving and a noise started. It sounded like a belt or the fan. I turned off the fan and the sound stopped. 5 minutes later I turned the fan on and the engine cut off. I drove it home, looked under the hood and the belt seemed fine. I turned on the fan and the engine shut down right away. What's going on ???


Sounds like the altenator failed and you just made it home on the power in the battery. Check or have the altenator checked. ... 2005 Hyundai Elantra

My 96 Isuzu Rodeo does not indicate that it is overheating but the hoses connecting to the radiator swell up and look like they are ready to pop. Now, there is a really loud noise like a metal fan hitting something. I removed the timing belt cover because it sounded like the noise was coming from that general area. Could the thermostat or water pump be bad?This is my primary vehicle and I'm no mechanic. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!


Sounds like you might have a head or head gasket problem, combustion pressure leaking into radiator/cooling system causing pressure build up (hose swelling) the noise could also be from this failure.\015\012get engine warm so hoses swell, turn ... 1996 Isuzu Rodeo

Need to replace the belts on my Toyota T100 1997. How do I go about doing this? The belt randomly squeaks when I accelerate or start the vehicle. I think that it is the alternator belt because this belt looks slightly worn with a few frays. I will probably just replace all the belts in the front of the engine while I have this belt off. How do I get to these belts? The fan blades cover up any access that I can see and this also looks like it will be hard to remove if necessary.

My 1999 1.6i Focus makes a horrible squeaking sound when started. I almost certain it's the fan belt, as friends have also advised me. Had a pal check for a loose pulley but apparently it's all tight, I'd really like to know how to tighten then fan belt or how else I can stop the noise?


Try spraying some preferably graphite on belt or wd40 ... 2000 Ford Focus

Hello hell, I have a strange noise coming from the front part of the engine. I have a 98 2.8 audi a4, timing belt was done. The electric fan works fine. The regular fan can easily be stopped by hand.The noise seems to come from the right top side of the engine. Anybody heard of something like this?

I have a 2006 toyota tacoma, FWD, SBDC with the towing package. The truck has been sitting in my garage for about 4 hours and when I just went outside, I heard what seemed to me a small motor running. Almost like when the cooling fan is going after the car turns off. I narrowed it down to what looks like a small box underneath the truck, in between the gas tank and the bed. Any clue what this noise would've been and is it concerning? When I started the truck and stopped it again, the noise


If you have air suspension on the rear axle then that could be an air pump which is restoring pressure to the reservoir. Normally this would not take very long so it is possible that you may have a leak or loose connection in the air suspension lines ... 2006 Toyota Tacoma

This morning, when i started my vauxhall corsa (S REG, DIESEL), black smoke came out of the air vents. The car was making a funny noise like a fan belt slipping, the battary light was flashing on and off. I must admit that the weather was rather cold and before hand the raditor was leaking and i forgot to put anti-freeze in. I've now taken the vehicle out for a test run and the car seems fine, the fan belt is on and working correctly. ANY CLUES ANYONE ????? THANK YOU


Sounds like your waterpump was frozen causing the belt to slip on the pulley.Fit a new belt[check it for glazing and cracks] and fit 2 litres of antifreeze in to a flushed cooling system. ... Volkswagen agon

When i turn the fan on, i get a loud noise, almost sounds like a pressure release or fan belt however, can't find where the noise is comming from. Too cheap to take it in for diagnoses, anyone else had that problem?

Loud noise! 0 Jeep Grand Cherokee after about 5 min starts a very loud high pitch whinning.It used to eventually go away but now it is always whinning and even louder!Seems like it's coming from drivers side engine compartment near the intake manifold. I thought it was a belt because when you step on the gas the rpms go up and the noise quits until you slow down or come to a stop then it starts again!! Is it a vacuum leak? A bearing seizing somewhere? Belt tensioner?


I would say a bad pulley also. Try to open the hood at idle and see if you can hear where it's coming from. Possibly a bad idle pulley or even the fan belf if yours is a mechanical fan. ... 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Whirring noise I have a 2001 S60. It is making a whirring, pulsing, squeaking noise under the engine. Sounds kind of like an old sci fi flying saucer. It takes the noise 5-15 minutes driving time to begin from a cold start. My mechanic friend (doesn?t do Volvos) put his long screwdriver to his ear in various locations to try and localize the noise, but to no avail. My first guess was a water pump, pulley, or fan belt, but the noise isn?t specific to those areas.Once it is warmed up, the idle chu


HELLO, I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. I WENT TO THE DEALER AND WHEN THE CAR WAS MAKING THAT WHIRLING SOUND, HE UNSCREWED THE OIL CAP AT THAT MOMENT AND THE NOISE WAS GONE. IT WAS THE PCV VALVE AND THE HOUSING(DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT IS) THAT NEEDED REPLACING. ... 2001 Volvo S60

Where is pcv valve on 2006 audi a4 2.0T?? My car started making a whiste noise when I started the car the other day and it sounded like the fan belt. But today it didn't do it at start up but when I got home it was noticed that it was whistling in idle and continued for several seconds after the engine was turned off. It almost sounded like it got lounder then shut off like a balloon you let the air out of and it kind of peaks then stops. I bought this car used, it has 70K and it's had a lot of

It sounds like a belt is frayed and slapping against something, but the belt is fine and the noise is coming from nowhere near the belt. the check engine light just came on. I recently had the clock spring replaced, i changed the radiator fan relay blower motor and blower motor resistor. I've never had the check engine light come on before!!!

1994 Dodge Caravan Serpentine fan belt will slip off pulleys if a little water is applied. All pulleys have been tested without noise. At start up and while driving a grinding noise is heard-like ball bearings without lubrication. As speed increases so does noise.


Take a good look at the tensioner pulley (the one with the spring) when the van isn't running. You'll notice that the belt is on the very outside edge of the pulley. Once you add water (or hit a puddle) the belt will slip off that pulley. The tens ... 1992 Dodge Caravan
