Having problems with your 1996 Oldsmobile Bravada ?
Squeaky noises under the hood
\015 My car has had a squeaking noise that we believe is coming from the serpentine belt or one of the pulleys, we lubricating oil on everything & it actually made the squeak worse. Anyone have any ideas???\015
IT COULD BE AN IDLER, TENSIONER, OR THE BELT SLIPPING, THESE ARE SEALED YOU CAN'T LUBE THEM. IT SOUNDS LIKE THE BELT IS SLIPPING, BUT IT COULD BE SLIPPING BECAUSE OF A FAULTY IDLER\\TENSIONER. REMOVE THE BELT, MAKE SURE ENGINE IS SHUT OFF, AND YOU HAVE THE KEYS, ROTATE ALL THE PULLEY'S AND THE ALTERNATOR PULLEY THEY SHOULD ROTATE FREELY AND RUN TRUE, AND NO ROUGH FEEL TO THEM, OR THE TENSION COULD BE TOO WEEK TO KEEP THE BELT TIGHT.
