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?

Replaced pressure line on power steering. now battery light comes on. belt squeeled when started, then stopped. Did power steering fluid get on belt and caused it to squeal and slip?


If you have a 4cyl then the belts for PS and alternator are separate. Taking a peek under the hood when the engine is running should give you a better idea if a belt is slipping, broken, etc. A common source of squealing is an alternator belt that is too loose and slips under heavy load charging the battery after startup. It's possible that some sort of problem happened due to replacing alternator belt but that belt slipping should be pretty easy to see. (again ... speaking of the 4cyl / 22RE enging)

Power steering squeel


This is not an unusual problem with power steering and is most frequently caused by a worn belt on the power steering pump. Check the belt and replace if needed. Also check the power steering fluid level and top it off.

How do i change an alternator belt on 1986 chey celebrity


You shouldn't have to... There is a large bolt on the front of the main pully. When you put the wrench on it, it will move that pully allowing you to put the belt on.

Squeeking noise


Hi ncharron,

The first thing I'd check would be the belt(s) (tension, fraying, damage).
Second and most likely source of the problem is the alternator.

If you have someone to recruit as a helper, have them start the engine while you listen for the source of the squeel.
If you have a meter available, check the output voltage. From the Alternator.

The dropping voltage on the gauge is the key pointer here. It should maintain above +13.5VDC with the engine running.

The Squeeling is not a happy noise. Luckily an Alternator is easily checked and if necessary, replaced.

Let me know what you find out. That will tell us how to proceed.
