Q: Q: Belt making noise.

asked by on

The car was making a noise. I opened the hood and heard one of the belts making the noise.

The noise in this engine belt is most likely the belt tensioner is weak and will make a knocking noise mostly at low engine speeds is is noticed. I would recommend having it checked and replace the tensioner and the belt as a set.
