I have a question regarding a noise coming from my wife's 2005 Toyota Sienna. Specifically, the noise comes from the area (when you open the hood and look in) on the left where there are several belts spinning. This noise is the absolute worst when it gets wet or excessively humid, but is very temporarily silenced when I spray WD-40 on the gears and belts area. I've read on several websites that it's the belts (specifically that they aren't tight enough or the bolts that hold the gears&belts into place aren't tight enough). However, I tugged on the belts in this area and they are all very tight and as far as I could tell, the bolts are all tightened as well. Now, I'm taking my car in to get an oil change here in the next month or so, but I wanted to ask what you think the noise might be? I'm fairly certain I can't fix it on my own (if you think I can, that's great), but I'd like to have some idea of what I'm facing when I walk into Firestone this/next month and have them look at it. I took it into the dealership I bought it from (used) shortly after I bought it and they fixed a few things for free (mostly some panel lights and such), including this noise, but I'm betting they just sprayed a ton of WD-40 on the gears and gave it back to me. Any advice you could give would be much appreciated!
have the same problem?
