Why Is Your Truck Squealing?
If you drive a dodge, Chevy, or Ford diesel pickup, there will come a day when you start the engine, only to be met with a sound of high pitched squeals. Fortunately Camarillo Independent in Camarillo, CA has the solution you’re looking for.
Belt squeals are extremely annoying, and a symptom of an issue that’s about to get worse. Fortunately, our technicians have you covered. Belt squeals are caused by the drive belt, which runs things like your AC, alternator, water pump, and so on. When they get old, stretched, dry, or there’s another issue at play, they squeal loudly. Sometimes it’ll only do it once a day the first time you start your truck, but eventually, it’ll get to a point where it does it continuously, with no relief.
Most of the time, all you need is a new belt. However, we’ll also check to make sure there aren’t other factors causing the issue, like a bad tensioner, damaged or locked up pulley, or fluid contamination. That’ll keep the issue from resurfacing again in the near future, forcing you to relive the trauma of a squealing belt a second time. Just make sure you get it taken care of before the belt breaks and leaves you stranded out on the road.
No matter your repair or maintenance needs, we’ve got your back. For the best diesel service shop in Camarillo, CA, call or stop by Camarillo Independent today.
