Check the tensioner and make sure it has the correct tension on the serpentine belt. Even with the proper tension, sometimes the belt will still squeal if it is older, after several years of use, especially if you live in a very hot climate, the belt can "glaze" and become slick. Hope it helps...JC
If the squeeling is coming from the tires, then the problem is most likely a misaligned front end. If the squealing is coming from the engine, then the problem would be in the power steering system.
Check your coolant level.
The speed sensor for a 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier is located on the side of the transmission. It has two wires coming out of it.
depending on how low it is, it is either the fan rubbing against the casing or the belt that turns the fan coming loose.
Have vehicle scanned to determine problem
Your question is vague, but since you used the words "squealing/grinding" I first start to look at the brakes. The squealing could be coming from your brake pads. Some brake pads come with a safety mechanism that alerts to when the brake pads are nearing replacement time. If you ignore that squealing then it turns to a grinding because there ain't no brake pad left. At this point, you're now looking at replacing the rotors as well as the pads. Rule of thumb is that if one side is bad then the other is just as bad or not far behind it.
rear differential got lube? rear wheel bearings?
Check for loose or worn serpentine or drive belts.
I know that squeals attract hogs if its coming from other hogs held a hog one time that was squealing and had about 8 come to it to help out
I had that issue with my Cavalier and it turned out to be a fuel pump problem. I would check with your local mechanic.
might be throtle postioning sensor
If the 2000 Cavalier has no lights an will not start, there is an electrical issue. Check the battery, alternator, and the wiring from the battery all the way to the starter to find the problem.
check the serpentine belt .also check all the pulley wheels especially the belt tensioner.one of the pulley wheel bearings may be badAnswercheck the serpentine belt .also check all the pulley wheels especially the belt tensioner.one of the pulley wheel bearings may be bad
Its probably the metal wear indicator on your brake pads squealing to let you know that your pads are almost worn out.
When it is time to change the brakes on your 2001 Mitsubishi Montero, they will make noises. There could be a grinding or squealing noise that you will hear.
If the noise is a squeaking sound, it could be coming from the bearings in the blower fan. It could also be coming from a worn bushing or bearing in the blower motor.
it comes on when you need gas
You need to replace the fluid in your rear differential. Use Honda Dual-Pump fluid, available from the stealership.
You have a serious problem with the front suspension and need to get it inspected by a professional "straight-away"!
There is probably a leak in the heater core which is under the dash on the firewall.
Leaking valve cover gasket.
If the squealing noise is coming from the drive belts, perhaps they need to be replaced or one of the accessories has bad bearings and is seizing up when it gets hot.
Yes, if the compressor's bearings are bad, usually accompanied by a roaring or squealing noise coming from the compressor's pulley.
why could there be black smoke coming out my 2000 calalier
If your vehicle has a mechanical speedometer it might be your cable rubbing against its casing
