squeaking belt when first started
I have an issue that is more an annoyance than a real problem, so I think...
Every time I start my car, whether it be cold or warm outside, I get a squealing/squeaking sound that is coming from what I believe is the belt. I have changed the belt once already about 20,000km ago and it still squeaks. The problem goes away with driving the car for a couple minutes and it only happens basically at idle when I first start it. Could this be a tensioner or belt problem?
While I am at it, I might as well ask about my engine crank. I feel that the engine cranks excessively before the engine turns over. Does anyone else have this issue? It just seems weird to me. No other vehicle that I have driven does this?
