4 Answers

Tighten or change ur belts


Could be the belt, belt idler, belt tensioner or a bearing in one of the accessories the belt drives such as the A/C compressor or the alternator etc.


If you want to know which pulley or belt is making the noise, spray bottle of water. Spray the pulley, if it gets quiet, thats the one

Could just. Be a loose belt so most likely one is alternater belt so tighten it and if it's adjusted all the way spray some hair spray on the belt while running just a lil bit on belt while it spins just barely spray it and wait a min and see if it quits or quiets down if it quiets down spray a lil more if it quits that time that will last a lilbit but u will need a new belt but what the hair spray (or belt dressing) does is shrinks the belt making it tighter most likely if u crank it in morning and it squealing right away mash gas down a lil and let off and do it couple times and the squealing changes as u press and let off gas and or quits it's definitely you alternater belt god bless
