timing belt squeal on startup.. belt too tight?

My car was making a squealing noise while driving the past few days between 1500 and 3000 Rpms. And when I went to start it today it sqealed then went away immediately. I didn't drive it. I shut it off. there is no t belt cover on and the belt doesn't seem loose it actually seems to tight and when I let it sit there at idle there is a weird noise coming from the cam gear area.. Idk what's wrong but I'm scared to drive it.

My car has a jdm h22 with the red valve cover
Please help

Re: timing belt squeal on startup.. belt too tight?

it sounds more than likely that it's your alternator or PS belt thats squeeling, not the timing belt, which is good.

check to see that they're tight enough, cuz it sounds like one (or both) need to be tightened.

lolzercopter, if your timing belt is squealing, your probably FUKKKERZED!

like all mighty above said, check both belts, the belts might also be bad, or something is leaking/leaked on them..

its probubly your accessory belt. mine does it on startup sometimes. probably the belt is getting old. give it some more tension.

Re: timing belt squeal on startup.. belt too tight?

You know I have replaced my alternator belt twice in the past 6 months, I am wondering if they keep ordering one that is just one size too large because as soon as it is on for a little bit I guess it stretches a bit then starts squealing. I try to tighten it but hardly any adjustment left. I'd say its too big or my adjustment screws are toast.

Re: timing belt squeal on startup.. belt too tight?

ok listen i read this post yesterday .. well just really glanced over it but i was thinkin of something last night hope this helps...
check your crank shaft pulley... make sure the screw in there is tight... mine came loose and i heard a squeling sound.. thought it was my ps pump belt, thought it needed some dressing 3 days later my pulley was wobling and all my belts came off and the pulley got fkked....

Re: timing belt squeal on startup.. belt too tight?

Check your crank pulley while the car is running. If like stated above and it's wobbling then shut the car off ASAP and get it towed to get the bolt tightened up quick!!! Mine was wobbling awhile back but luckily caught it in time to bolt that sukka back up tight!!!

Check to see if the problem is coming from the t-belt by leaning closely to the cam gears and t-belt. If it rips your ear off then you've gotten too close!!!

If you've taken the PS out then you've at this point narrowed it down to just the ALT belt which all you need to do is slightly loosen the bolt underneath it to let your alt adjust. You then find someone with a crowbar and jab it btwn the left side of the alt and the motor and apply pressure leaning towards the motor to force the alt to move in a upwards direction. (try to have somone hold the crowbar to keep the pressure on the alt constant) so that you can then tighten up that bolt underneath it. You should be good at this point!!!

^OMFG!!! Make sure you double check your crank pulley the next few days to make sure it dont get loose again. Bc I had mine bolted up tight and a few days later it was wobbling so I got the crank pulley bolted back up tight but before doing so some LOCTITE glue was put onto the crank shaft and then putting on the crank pulley!!! It's to make sure the incident dont happen again!!! Cant hurt to be safe and make sure the pulley dont loosen up again!!!

Re: timing belt squeal on startup.. belt too tight?

make sure, those need to be tightened to 159 lb-ft, your impact driver may or may not be that strong. that bolt is one of the tightest on the car! besides the axle nut at 180, and you remember how hard those are to loosten??
