SMOKING AND SQUEALING

2000 Dodge Intrepid • 150,000 miles

I just turned on my 2000 Dodge Intrepid RT 3.5 and a bad squeal came from the engine followed by smoke. I checked the A/C belt and it was fine, all other belts were replaced early this year. Is it my Camshaft or something else?

Make sure the all the belt pully are not bad and turn freely

Yeah, I checked all the belts. Even when I remove them something is squealing. I'm going to pull the harmonic balancer.

I would suspect a water pump locking up.

Or the a/c compressor. Dont remove the balancer. Use a long screwdriver put on each componite and put it to your ear. Youll find where fast this way.
