Q: Squeak sound...it sounds like a belt

asked by on

Hi sometimes when I start my car it tends to squeak...also while I'm driving it'll squeak..is it the serpentine belt ?

My car has 61000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. A squeaking noise could possible be caused by a loose serpentine belt or pulley which drives the belt. However, this type of noise can also be caused by a power steering pump or other component. In order to accurately diagnose this problem, you might want to have a professional mobile mechanic complete a car is making a noise inspection.
