-I hear the noise sporitically at speeds from 0 to maybe 40 mph. Not sure if road noise masks it at higher speeds.
-Letting up on the gas will make it stop instantly.
-Earlier, there seemed to be some relationship to making a left turn, but now, it happens whether or not turning.
-Occasionally, now that it has gotten so frequent, it will make one last screetch after stopping and turning the car off.
-I have not been able to get it to happen while stopped and idling so that I can figure out where it is coming from.
-It almost seems like some sort of a pressure bleed off or something.
-The car runs perfect, idles perfect. Just makes this wierd noise.
I can send a recording of the noise.
What is an appropriate donation amount?
Thanks for your quick response. I think the problem must be something else. A couple of reasons:
1) I checked the serpentine belt tension, (seemed very good). The belt has no cracks that I could see while still on the car. It was replaced about 40,000 miles ago. However, I forgot to try the water sprinkle trick.
2) It frequently makes the noise one final time after shutdown. I have a recording on which I can hear myself turning off the key, and a full two seconds after shutdown, it makes one last squeel. I was going to upload, but your site doesn't accept mp3.
I did notice that while letting off of the gas usually makes the noise stop, it sometimes makes noise while coasting (foot on the brake).
If I park for a while (twenty minutes?) It doesn't make the noise until I travel another 10-15 miles.
have the same problem?
