Re: Screechin noise

How many miles are on the truck? Has the belt ever been replaced before? Look at the smooth side of the belt, not the grooved side. if there is some shininess or glaze, then I would replace it...The belts are not too expensive and are easy to do...

Re: Screechin noise

It does sound like a supercharger whine lol and no it has never been replaced before. Ill just check our local dealer just to be sure. I couldnt find anything wrong with the belt either.

Re: Screechin noise

would a loose belt screech for about 10-15 seconds? this seems to be too short of a noise for that. my 99 jeep used to screech at startup and jeep dealer told me to blame the cold and not the car. it was just some moisture in there that would freeze overnight.

Re: Screechin noise

Yes it's definately serpentine belt slip(trust me-i see it all the time and we regularily deal with temps in the -20 F range). Also can be power steering pump but only at really cold temps.

Re: Screechin noise

I am taking my Jeep into the dealer tomorrow for them to look at a squeaking noise coming from inside the engine bay. Does it warm or cold and usually louder on a cold start up. Jeep is only a few years old but it sounds like its 10 sometimes.

Re: Screechin noise

There is a TSB for 05-06 5.7L. Had this done on mine last year.

Re: Screechin noise

mine started making a squeaking noise. Mine was the water pump bearing. Got it replaced today under the warranty.

Yeah, it fixed it. The noise was awful. Nothing like a serpentine belt slipping. It was an extremely loud whine lasting anywhere from 2-10 seconds after start up. It only happened when it was in the 20's and colder. The colder it was the louder the whine was and the longer it would last after start up.
