    Squealing Noise Coming From My Engine ... HELP!

    Has anyone else had this problem???

    The other day when i was driving my bf told me that he could hear a high pitched squealing sound coming from my engine, he said its been like that for a while (but forgot to tell me ) does anyone know what this could be?

    Prob either a lose fan belt or aux belt, any garage can fix this quite easily, might even just need retensioning.

    Should be a fairly cheap job to fix, basically either your fan belt or aux belt is too slack, sometimes they can be retensioned but in the past I have always had them changed as soon as I hear them squealing

    If it is squealing then it isnt fine, at the very least it needs adjusting.

    Just be aware that belts wont be covered under warrenty so is likely to be cheaper to look at a smaller independant garage to replace the belt, its not a big job.

    You know Vauxhall... They'll tell you anything to make you happy.

    If it needs replacing or adjusting then get it done. Loose belts can cause massive damage.
