1991 Dodge Spirit Q&A
1991 Dodge Spirit Question: Cant stop belt squealing noise?
Yes i did everything one can think of doing, cleaned pulleys, checked idler bearing, tightened up so tight noise went away and belt blew after 25 miles...lol. I even sandblasted pulleys, wire brushed, sand paper, you name it i have done it. (belt dressing, candle wax,even a master mech.said spray WD 40 on it) WD40 made it quite for a couple of days and thought he was on to some thing. Going to take to dealership and look for the oldest service man their and see what he says to try? - dodgeman12345
spray water on it.if it quits squealing briefly then change the belt. - joelburke26
Did you replace all 3 belts with a top quaility brand? That should fix it right up. If the correct tension is applied!! Never put 'anything' on a belt but the proper tension! Maybe water would be ok to quiet squeal for testing. That other CRAP just makes matters worse once it wears off! Oh, i have been doing this for 40 + years myself. Hope that is old enough! - pushrod
poss idler or tensioner bearing is bad - globalhelper
