How do you silence a squealing belt on a 1996 Saturn and should the belt be replaced before repairing the crank seal?

replace the belt

they should be done at the same time

oil from the crank may be getting onto the belt which will trash it quick

Your belts just may need tightened.... more than likely that is the problem. If the belts were just replaced within a reasonable time that should be it. If you don't know how to do it yourself, go buy a Chiltons manual at Auto Zone or any other auto parts store, they cost about 25 dollars but for most repairs on your car you can do it yourself. The manual will definitly tell you how tighten your belt. If you don't want to go that route pull up to a mechanic, be real with them and ask them if they could take one minute to tighten your belt or if they will show you how to.. If they are a human being they will probably show you. And also if oil gets on the belt that gets bad, so make sure there are no oil or fluids getting on the belt.

the Saturn has an automatic belt tensioner if your belt is slipping you need to change the tensioner in Canada i paid 185.00 for a new one good luck

The Saturn S series is an old automobile. Commercials for them were first broadcast in 1992. The line was discontinued in 2003 and replaced by the Saturn Ion.

Gas is not getting into the carburetor because no Saturn made ever had one.

As Sailor Saturn, Hotaru Tomei can destroy a planet . ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Hotaru Tomoe (not Tomei, just a heads-up), as Sailor Saturn, possesses the power of death and rebirth. Her two main titles are the soldier of silence or the soldier of death and rebirth. And yes, Sailor Saturn has the power to destroy an entire planet by simply lowering her Silence Glaive. However, the powers of death is a double-edged sword; if she uses all of her power, she dies as well.

Could be a worn belt, failing power steering pump or low power steering fluid.

iwhat does the noise sound like. most likely a worn belt or belt tensioner if its a high pitched squealing noise.

It should be replaced when it begins making a noticeable noise.

Someone who owns a Saturn SUV should take their vehicle when it is need of repairing to either a dealership which sells Saturn vehicles and has a repair garage. Also one could take it to a mechanic that knows how to work on Saturn vehicles and is able to tell the owner what repairs need to be fixed and knows how to fix the repairs as well.

Cost me $50 for both sides. Bought the bearings off eBay and replaced them myself.

You do not need to change the transmission fluid in the Saturn vue. It is a sealed system and only needs to be replaced when the trans needs rebuilding.

They make kits that are sold in most autoparts stores for repairing the broken wires on the rear defogger. Pretty inexpensive.

The clutch hydraulic unit cannot be bled properly It should be replaced as a unit You can try (with) an adapter to put vacuum on the reservoir but it most likely won't work The Saturn manual says it cannot be bled and must be replaced as a unit.

Not Applicable The Saturn 4 cylinder, both the SOHC and DOHC used a chain, and it doesn't need to be replaced unless the engine has OTHER problems.
