Screaming heebie jeebies

Post by cobbydale1020 on Sat Nov 23, 2013 11:53 pm

Hi All

Hoping someone can identify a fault for me.
My 2002 dual fuel 1300 MPV Hi Jet has started screaming on take off!
It starts as I pull away in Ist dies a little and Then starts screaming again as I change into second gear , dies a little as I accelerate, then finally stops as I change into third gear.
It sound like a worn or loose fan belt used to but as it doesn`t have such a thing I`m thinking it may have something to do with the timing belt or the pulleys?
As it only occurs when driving it`s hard for me to check under the seats and listen to see where it might be coming from
Wondered if anyone has come across this one before.
Appreciate any ideas

Thanks in anticipation

You've got an alternator belt... Hopefully.
From alternator to crank & water pump pulleys. Sounds like its loose.

Or if it's wet, you have another problem

You posted in the wrong section? Laughing


Waterpump or alternator bearings?

Why are you sure its NOT the belt?

If you want to test the belt to some degree,

Put your rear heated windscreen, headlights, main beam, and fan blower on max.

This puts maximum load onto the alternator, and if the belt is lose, it will now me making noise.

If you want to shut it up, you could just tighten the belt a bit, using the alternator.

Or for a momentary test, if you squirt WD40 onto a belt they stop squeaking. (for about 30 seconds!)


If it is not the belt, then I would also suspect either the water-pump (which might mean you have no coolant in it either) or alternator or you might be on the verge of eating a camshaft maybe?

p.s. Moved the topic!
