I\'ve got the squeels Ah yes, it is a nice (EXTREMELY HOT) summer day in Houston. The wind is blowing pleasantly at 0mph and the mesquitos are bad enough to make you want to take a bath in Bug Spray (which doesn't work when there are as many as tehre are down here). Then i get in to start my K5 and low and behold the first sound as my 350 comes to life is an extremely loud squeel under the hood. First thing i think, belts. So i changed my belts (they were worn anyway). Then it isn't as loud. I played around with it and figured out that it only squeels when there is a heavy amp draw (for instance, having the a/c on high but it doesn't do it at the medium levels, or turning my stereo up loud with my amps pushing hard and trying to roll my windows down. I also listened under the hood with a pipe to try and locate it. It sounds like it is coming from the passenger side near the alternator. Could it be my alternator bearings going out? But if so, why would it stop after a few seconds. It also only squeels at start up and during accelleration. K5 just upgraded to rig status!
