Cherping sound on 05 Sportivo when taking off and in low revs


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I've noticed that when taking off I am getting a cherping kinda sound when taking off and in low revs.

When my Sportivo was taken for it's Toyota service I mentioned it to them and the mechanic told me he lubricated the fan belt.

Im not much of a mechanic or techo but does this sound right?

Any help would be great.

Cheers

I've missed something... where do you thing the chirp is coming from?

Chirp and squeal

Chirp and thud

Chirp and knock

Simple, unidimensional chrip coming from <insert here>

Is your car still under warranty???

Take it to Toyota and get the belt and tensioner replaced under warranty...

If your warranty is over, ask for a Warranty authorisation request to be sent to Toyota in regards to these items and if that gets denied, expect to pay around the $500 - $600 mark...

tensioner is non adjustable but yeh if its a belt squeel itll be that

putting grease on the belt sometimes helps strangely enough but it rarely works for long

Sorry if this sounds like a silly question but where is the tensioner belt located???? :unsure:

superdave always goes one better lol!

you might actually wanna check out your water pump.

i just serviced my car and when i was checking out everything i noticed that my water pump has started to leak and my belt is chirping possibly due to coolant leaking onto it.

just a thought hate to see you stuck cause its overheated.

so i spose ill be putting up a how to thread when i get me a new water pump <_<

I always find it funny when people try and say that a FWD car has a fan belt.........

Do not spend money for belt tensioner and belt. The noise problem will come back after few hundreds of kilometers. This is one of the unsolvable little issues of this car.

I replaced them once under guarantee but I did not care to do it again after few weeks! The car is like this for 2 years w/o any serious problem.
