My 1998 Ford Explorer Sport S-belt makes a continuous squeaking noise that gets worse with acceleration. The alternator and the belt are both working, the belt just squeaks horribly. I've put silicon on the belt and that stops the squeaking for a time, but it always comes back.
It is likely one of the pullies failing. the most likely one is the tensioner pulley. only way to fix that is to replace it. also examine the front of your water pump. if there is any fluid "weeping" from the casting hole(s) at the front that wo ... 1998 Ford Explorer
I have a continual chirping squeal , my steering is affected the most, it is intermittent between power ,and non. the chirping gets worse while turning a corner. someone said power steering pump, another said loose belt. which is it? if its the belt why does it feel tight, looks good, and hasnt come off. this has been going on for some months now. if its the belt, can it just be tightened ? and if so, which one?
Does the problem accure (1) when making a right turn only, or making a left turn only or (2) when turning in either direction. (1) sounds like rack and pinon while (2) sounds like power steering pump. (1) Rebuilt $125.00 and (2) Rebuilt $60.00 ... 2001 Chrysler Sebring
Approximately a month and a half, two months ago the water pump on my 1991 Jeep Cherokee Sport failed, tore up my serpentine belt, and destroyed my heater core. I dealt with that and my car was running great. About three weeks ago, I went to start my car and the engine wouldn't even turn. My meters on my dash would move but nada. A few times trying to start it and it worked, but my right headlight went out. I replaced it and it was fine. A week ago, my car wouldn't start exactly like before. Whe

2005 Ford Freestar that is making a squealing noise on the left side when you are facing the vehicle. When I stop the vehicle dies, but I can crank it right back up. The noise is not continuous & doesn't seem to be dependent on the weather (rain/sunny). We have had to replace the AC in the van 5 months ago & it seems to be a belt or pulley maybe causing the problem - any suggestions would be appreciated.

2005 Honda Civic LX, had the timing belt and water pump replaced, about 1 month after the temp started to heat up when idling, never while moving. Found the overflow container full, I replaced the thermostat and the radiator cap. The problem continues, I have noticed that if I keep the rpm under 3000 it will be ok, but if I go over the overflow will start to fill up. Please can someone advise me what to do? Thanks
Are your fans working? If not thats your problem.. I would check your coolant flow make sure your radiator is not clogged and pump is working... ... 2005 Honda Civic

2004 kia optima. After a 5 minute stop at a store, I got into my car and it started jerking and died. It continues to do this whenever I slow down or stop. It had been running fine up to this point. No check engine light for code. Had timing belt and crank sensor changed 1 month ago, at that time alternator checked ok. Looking for possible issues and solutions.
Have check to see if your maf sensor might be dirty this sensor is located in the air intake it has two screws that hold it in place (make sure you scratch a little indentation to see which way it went )take it off wash it in alcohol scrub in the l ... 2004 Kia Optima
I replaced my timing chain and all my gaskets plus my water pump and thermostats in my 97 Nissan sentra gxe sport and has a recent oil change and tire alignment. I now hear a clinking clank noise. It started about two months ago but only when I was turning. Now its when I drive and turn but not always continuous. I have been in a bad habit lately by forgetting to take my e break off right away before driving. I never get more than half a block but I just moved onto a hilly area.
The problem is a faulty CV Joint. Has nothing to do with the engine unless it is low on oil or the oil pump has gone bad. My money is on the CV joint problem. Check for tears in the Covers or looseness in the joints and replace or repair as neede ... 1997 Nissan Sentra

Serpintine belt The serpintine belt continually falls off. We thought it was only in the rain when it gets wet but it fell off today. Dry as a bone outside. We are thinking it may be a bad pulley. I have fixed this many, many times and it continues to fall off. I did put a new power steering pump and pulley on thinking this was the problem but belt continues to fall off. I am at a lose at this point.
It sounds to me like the belt tensioner pulley is bad.Its spring loaded and this pulley is what keeps the belt in place. ... 1998 Chrysler Town & Country

After couple months, got worse when electrical load put on it, then, ran choppy one day, and died. 2 months, 6-7 trips to shop, and 5 tows later, I've changed battery, alternator, broken alternator (bracket) bolt, timing belt, broken balancer belt, water pump, and spark plug wires.

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

I have a 1999 Mercury Sable. The only problem I have had with the car is the serpentine belt. It started 3 months ago . . . the engine was overheating and the belt was shredding. I bought a belt tensioner and a new serpentine belt -- but that did not fix the problem (the belt shredded 5 days later). Then I bought an idler pulley and another new serpentine belt -- but that did not fix the problem and the belt shredded again within a day. Finally I bought a new water pump and that fixed the proble

2004 Pontiac Montana with less than 98,000 miles. It drives fine (not hot) & starts fine. We replaced the battery less than 2 months ago. We have been refilling the power steering fluid once every 3 months. Yesterday the battery warning light came on & there was a strained groan-sound & some smoke. Under the hood, we could see that some kind of fluid had leaked on the alternator belt. That was the source of the smoke. Cleaned the belt with brake cleaner. That helped for a while. After that, the

I have a 95 Corolla wagon with 117,547 miles on it. I changed the timing belt at 61,577 K. this means I have 4030 miles before I hit the 60K 'scheduled maintenance' of the timing belt again. but I will be driving my car 350 miles away, for work, and keeping it there for the next six months, and I REALLY don't want to have anything go wrong then. There, I'll be commuting about 30 miles 6 times a week, over 20 weeks. Is it safe to wait until I return, in six months, to replace the b

I recently had an a/c belt break on my 2000 Sienna Van.It was replaced and the new belt continues to squeal.It has been adjusted several times and then replaced but squealing continues. I have discovered that the squealing does not occur when the rear a/c is running, just the front unit. I have stumped my shade tree mechanic. - Any advice will be appreciated. Sandra
Get away from the shade tree. have your a/c pressures checked. the compressor may be on its way out. make sure the cooling fan or fans are working. did you use a quality belt, or some cheap brand from otto zown? if the rear a/c is running but not th ... 2004 Toyota Sienna
I own a 2003 Elantra. When my car is cold the belts squel loudly and the steering is hard till it warms up. The other part is that the belt keeps breaking that is around the alternator. I am not a mechanic but I am pretty sure there is something wrong with either the way the belt is installed or the alignment of the belt or maybe the alternator itself. The pulley on the alternator turns freely. I have to replace the belt a third time in three months.

I have a Kia Sportage 4wd 2002 with under 60000 miles. I lost power steering and when I took to mechanic they said I threw a belt(which they replaced with great difficulty) due to a bent or warped harmonic balancer. The dealer replaced my timing belt 10 months ago so they were the last to take off this belt. Either they bent the harmonic balancer removing the belt or it is defective. Shouldn't the harmonic balancer be covereed under the 100000 mile 10 yr warranty or their mistake? As I understan
