Common reasons for this to happen:
Failing Water Pump Pulley: The most common cause of squealing or squeaking from the timing belt cover is the water pump pulley. If the bearings in the pulley are beginning to fail, they will make noise.
The belt squeals because there is improper tension in the belt drive system. This is usually caused by a worn automatic tensioner, but other causes can include a contaminated belt (oil, belt dressing, etc.) or a belt that is too long or worn out.
The most common reasons a Hyundai Sonata makes noise when braking are bad brake pads, bad brake rotors, or bad brake caliper.
The most common causes of brake squealing are worn brake pads, dust or debris between the pads and rotors, overnight moisture, your personal braking style, metallic brake pads, and lack of lubrication on drum brakes.
A high-pitched squeal when accelerating.
If you notice a loud squeal when accelerating, especially if your car is just warming up, it could be that you have a loose or worn fan belt. Usually if your fan belts are worn, it could mean your timing belt needs to be replaced as well.
If lubrication is the main cause of squeaking it can be an easy and inexpensive fix to take on a DIY project with a grease gun and some spray-on lubricant; or even easier, take your vehicle to an express oil change and preventative maintenance supplier like Jiffy Lube of Southern California.
A grinding sound usually indicates that your brake pads are worn out and the rotors and drums maybe damaged. Later on, it can lead to brake failure if not detected in time. You Hear Squealing or Squeaking. If you hear squealing or squeaking, it means your brake linings are in trouble.
If your brakes are squeaking due to worn brake pads, you should replace them immediately. You shouldn`t drive the car for more than a day or two. The squealers warn the driver that the brakes need a service. If you neglect them, you will impose more damage, which will surge the repair expense.
Permatex Disc Brake Quiet stops brake squealing by dampening vibration at the caliper/brake pad interface. While providing a tighter fit and allowing for easier disassembly it also protects against corrosion.
Bad Bearing On An Engine Accessory Pulley
All the pulleys in this system have bearings that can go bad after many miles. When these bearings go bad, it`s common for them to squeal whenever the engine is running.
You need to replace your brake pads if they squeak while you`re driving but no brakes are applied. The brake wear indicator, a metal clamp that fastens to the brake pads, usually comes with your brake pads when you buy them. These pads deteriorate over time, which forces them to grind against the rotors.

Car sounds like golf cart when revving and braking; also leaking fluid; sound fades as car warms up
There are a number of things that could make an engine noisy when starting up. Depending on the specific type of sound you are referring to, this will determine how to properly diagnose. If there is a bit of a hissing sound, this may be a sign of a vacuum leak. If this is more of a shrieking sound, this may be a sign of a worn out or out of adjustment serpentine belt. If there is a bit of a howling or growling sound, this may be a sign of a worn out or low on fluid power steering pump. A rattling or pinging sound may be caused by an ignition problem. An engine can ping (or knock) due to an improper combustion process. A "spark knock" is the result of combustion occurring too early. Early combustion can occur from carbon buildup inside the combustion chamber, a lean air/fuel mixture, and advanced ignition timing (spark plug firing too soon). A clattering type sound may be a result of improper lubrication in the valve train which could be a more serious problem and should be addressed as soon as possible. I would suggest having an expert from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose and inspect your vehicle to ensure everything is in proper working order.
Can front wheel drive car engine power rear wheel drive
Anything is possible with enough engineering. The changes you are looking at would take major structural changes and would definitely not be an easy job. You could possibly consult a manufacturing engineer to get more details on how this could actually be carried out and whether it would be feasible.
Why does my ABS lights in dash come on after driving for a while on my 2011 Hyundai Sonata
Hello. If this issue has occurred ever since the work was done then I would suspect that there is something that was not installed correctly. If you are getting noise also then the ABS wheel speed sensor may be contacting the tone ring which will cause all of these issues. It may also be a bearing that is bad which will cause this. Prior to changing anything the computer needs to be scanned for codes to see what comes up. I would also make sure that all of the tires are the same size as one different tire will cause the readings to be off. If you are going to have this looked at, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to you to [diagnose why the ABS light is coming on] https://www.yourmechanic.com/services/abs-light-is-on-inspection
After 20-30 miles driving, squeaking sound begins
Hello there. This is a common fault with the Suzuki Vitara. The most likely causes for the squeaking noise would be the drive belt, axle, tensioner, or idler pulley. Any of these can increase in noise along with the engine speed. If you need further help, I would have a qualified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect the noise in person in order to have it corrected.
Hearing a knocking/popping sound somewhere in the front of the car when driving.
There could be multiple issues causing the mystery sound you’re hearing on your 2005 Mazda. My first inclination would be to check the steering stabilizer bar bushings, but if those were replaced, it could be an issue with your wheel bearings. In many cases, when wheel bearings are starting to wear out, they will cause a clunking or grinding sound to occur when you turn the wheel all the way to one side or the other. If you need further help with this, I recommend having a qualified professional from YourMechanic diagnose the noise and assist with repair.
My car makes a subtle squeak and minor clunk when driving over bumps slowly.
If you just had a shock replaced and the noise did not start until the shock was installed, then I suggest having the shock mounts checked to make sure they are seated properly when they were put in. If the noise was there before the shock, then have all the sway bar links and front end joints checked. A technician from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to diagnose the squeak and clunk noises and make the needed repairs.
When I turn on my AC the radiator fans do not turn on. The fans do come on when the car warms up so I know they are working and the fuses are good. The AC compressor does come on and the air blows ice cold when the car is moving. Car is a 2006 Chrysler Sebring Sedan 2.7l v6.
The control circuit for the fans needs to be checked. For example, there is usually a condenser fan relay in the A/C electrical controls. There could be a fault with that relay and/or wiring problems, perhaps even just a loose connection, blown or loose fuse, and so forth. To resolve something like this, the recommended service is an electrical component diagnostic. If you request that diagnostic service, the responding certified mechanic will get the problem pinpointed and resolved. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
A large clunking noise is coming from the front left of my car anytime I start my car, and anytime I go over a pothole/speedbump
Hi, thanks for writing in. If simply starting your car causes a clunk, then you may have another damaged motor or transmission mount (there are 4 total). You should replace all 4 mounts. When one mount fails, it allows excess motion of the engine/transmission, damaging the other mounts as well. It is false economy, generally speaking, with the age and mileage of your Honda, to do them one at a time. If you would like help with these replacements, consider having an expert automotive technician from YourMechanic come to your home or office to perform the engine mount replacements for you.
