Q: When I am accelerating, my car makes a squealing noise

asked by on

I have a 2001 Honda Accord V6 with 143K miles with an auto transmission. When accelerating it makes a squealing noise but it only does this when I have been traveling for longer than half an hour.

You should have the serpentine belt checked to see if belt is in need to be replaced or tensioner is causing slipping of belt. If it is replace tensioner and belt.
