If the sound is like a loud screeching. That comes on and off. Then one of your belts is rubbing and might be damaged. So i suggest that you inspect them.

Sounds like a loose or worn belt, alternator or fan tends to do that when they get worn or loose.

This sounds like you have a loose or worn drive belt. Check all the belts and their tension.This sounds like you have a loose or worn drive belt. Check all the belts and their tension.

It sounds like the fan belt is slipping. Try tightening up the fan belt, or try rubbing resin on the fan belt to give it more friction.

It is probably a belt noise. The belt is probably loose, have it tightened. If that does not fix it you can try some stuff called belt dressing, sold at auto parts stores.

if it was like my 99, then a belt was worn out, and will cause a chirping noise, if it is in the engine compartment, it is very likely to be a belt

Belts squeak because they are loose. First fix that. The boom noise is the loose belt slapping around and hitting something. Losing power happens because the lose belt causes your generator to stop working. When the electricity goes off, it tells your computer, "Something is drastically wrong." The computer then slows down the engine.

AnswerSounds like a loose or worn accessory drive belt. there are two belts, check the one going to the a/c compressor, you should be able to turn the belt about half way around, if it's too loose or tight, adjust it, if that doesn't work, replace the belt.

This sounds like a belt. Either it is loose or glazed over. Either have the belt adjusted or replaced, or you can try some belt dressing, commonly sold at auto parts stores.

Sounds like a loose accessory belt or a bad belt tensioner.

AnswerI think this engine uses a timing chain, but I am not 100% positive. Regardless, the noise you are hearing is either a timing chain that is loose or a belt. I would suspect that the timing chain is loose. Have this looked at ASAP.It could also be the timing tensioner also.

AnswerYour belt is probably loose. Your steering pump labors and stresses the belt and squeals when the belt is loose. You should have less than 3/4 inch play up and down on your belt when properly tightened. http://www.autozone.com/servlet/UiBroker?UseCase=S001&UserAction=viewSimpleDiagInfo&Parameters=infoanswer sounds to me like your power steering fluid is old and dirty or wrong viscosity oil thins out when hot hence the noise going awayI would also say it is the belt. to get more wear out of it and to stop the noise, rub the inside of the belt with a bar of soap.

The belt cover may have been installed incorrectly and either the belt or crank pulley could be hitting it, the belt may have been installed too tight or incorrectly also.

This sounds like a classic case of the belt tension being incorrect. The pump is loaded when turning to full lock in either direction and causes the belt to slip when to loose. Adjust the belt and the noise should go away. If it is excessively worn it may pay to replace the belt.

The town tune is the noise you hear when you talk to someone or the noise you hear when it's been an hour. If you don't like it then you can change it in the town hall.

check on www.nhsta.com and see if the front end has a recall problem. I own a 2001 LS and is currently experiencing the same problem. Does it sounds like loose bolts?

Check your anti sway bar linkage. There are small ball joints on either end and they will wear out making a noise like you are describing.
