Why Your Car Squeals When You Start It

One of the most annoying sounds known to man is a loud squeal every time you start your car, truck, or SUV. What causes this, and what can you do to fix it? Kwik Kar Vista Ridge in Lewisville, TX has the answer.


If you’ve ever experienced a belt squealing, you know how irritating it can be. Every time you start your car, you have to listen to the engine scream for several seconds while everyone in the parking lot stares at you. No fun. So what do you do?

The noise is coming from the drive belt up front, one or more of which run your alternator, AC, water pump, etc. It may squeal only when cold, only the first time you start it for the day, only for a second, or it may never seem to stop. Any amount is too much, however, and it’s something that’s a quick and easy fix - not to mention it’ll save you from getting stranded with a broken belt.

In most cases, the belt simply needs to be replaced and tightened to the right specification. In some instances, other issues are at fault. Your tensioner may be bad, a pulley may be locked up or bent, or fluids could be leaking onto the belt. If that’s the case, your technicians will know exactly what to do; don’t worry.

No matter your repair or maintenance needs, we’ve got you covered. If you have a noisy belt that’s driving you crazy, let us take care of it for you...it’s a quick and easy job, and it’ll save you the stress of listening to it every time you start your engine.
