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

Troubleshoot squealing and grinding noise from 1995 Nissan Maximum?

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.
