That means the fanbelt on the alternator is not tight enough or needs to be changed, if the belt on powersteering goes via A/C than it might be too tight on the powersteering pulley.

Squeeling noise in 2004 Pontiac Aztek


Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop . Without hearing the noise we'd only be guessing . Normally high pitch squealing nosies are associated with belt slipping problem's (serpentine belt ) . The serpentine belt turns the alternator , which if slipping could cause electrical issue's .

Squeeling noise, very rough idle (sometimes stalling), no engine code


Rough idle / stall at idle Check for vacume leaks & split intake tube or loose clamps on intake. Noise put spot of grease on drive belts if noise goes you may need new belts or a tighten up.

We have a 2008 GMC Envoy. It started making a high pitch squeel as soon as we started the car and only stops when the car is turned off. We changed the serpentine belt and both bearing. But the squeeling...


Its vary likely a bearing noise . Eighter the altenator power steering pump air pump or water pump . Although it could also be the belt tenisinor its a big time ware part . Thats what i would look at first .The water pump would be leaking from the bottom . The altenator would be giveing you battery problems charging . The air pump if you have one would show signs in engine porformance . The power steering pump you may not notcce a porformance issue .Its likely the belt tenisioner

High pitch noise like a powerstering pump


When does this happen? When you're turning? When the car is cold? Under acceleration? I need more info before I can make any suggestions.

2004 Chrysler 300m has high pitched squeeling noise during low-speed turns. (parking lots, driveways). Had a power steering flush and had serpentine belt replaced with no improvement. 103,000 miles...


Sounds like the serpentine belt is slipping . Most likely you have a bad belt tensioner. Another possibility is your steering pump could be going out. Ball joints and tie rods make clunking or knocking sounds when they are bad.

Very hot alternator after just replacing and a high pitch squeel


THE ALTERNATOR CAN GO OUT DUE TO A WEAK OR BAD BATTERY CAUSING IT TO OVERCHARGE TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH DEMAND ON THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM. IT WILL HAVE A HIGH PITCH NOISE WHILE CHARGING AT A HIGH RATE AND FINALLY IT TO WILL GO BAD.

HAVE THE BATTERY TESTED AND CHECK THE CHARGE RATE AT THE ALTERNATOR AND AT THE BATTERY.

My car is a 03 mazdaspeed protege. After about a twenty minute drive it starts making a high pitched whistle sound. When i give it some gas it stops but when i let off it comes back.


This could be caused the idle speed control valve as air passes through it, have seen this issue on other models many times, clean the valve first, if the noise persists replace it.
