Car squeaking/squealing

So my car just started squeaking today. It's not brakes because it does it when just idling. You can hear it when the car is running, driving. Could it be the serpentine belt? I know it needs to be changed out and I already have one, I just haven't gotten around to changing it. It sounds sort of like those old minivans that you hear going down the road sort of squealing. I know what the power steering pump sounds like, it's not it I don't think. Thanks

Since you already have the belt, switch it out. Takes less than 5 minutes and you'll know right away if that is the culprit

My Car recently started squeaking and groaning as the front suspension moved. I have sprayed silicone on all the bushings and so far no luck. Anyone else have this issue?

Its the belt or the idler/tensioner. I'd replace everything honestly if the car is older. At higher miles the bearings in the pullies just wear out and they aren't expensive on Rockauto or Amazon.


For the person who does it when the car is moving, probably balljoints.

Good to hear that your issue is fixed. The other member with the squeaking from suspension could be ball joints. I lubed mine with silicone thru the boot etc this worked for a couple weeks but didnt go away until they were changed.
