Default 2002 Toyota Camry V6-XLE


When I first start the car in the morning I hear a high pitch squeal from
under the hood. I have taken it to the dealer but by the time I get there
the squeal is gone. The dealer has checked under the hood but found
nothing. Any thoughts as to what would cause a squeal only when the engine
is cold?

Switch to Mobil 1 5W30 and see if it goes away. I used to get that on my
2002 LE V6, and Mobil 1 fixed that.

My Camry did that too, it seemed to come from the alternator pulley,
probably a worn bearing. Mine also went away after it got warm. It's one
of those things that doesn't matter but if it really annoys you, it'll cost
more than it's worth to fix.

I believe it is one or more of your drive belts squealing, most likely the
power steering belt.

Check the condition and tension adjustment of all these belts, and if OK,
lubricate the inner surface with some soap, dri-lube (which is a wax), or a
proprietary spray made for this purpose.

Try checking power steering belt for looseness.

My 2002 LE does that on cool mornings, when the humidity is just right. The
dealer replaced my serpentine belt at around 22k miles. I now have 55k
miles, and the squeal is back, but only on some mornings. The dealer told
me that it cannot be tightened, as there is a self-adjusting mechanism which
maintains the proper tension.
