Customer Question

Hello, I have a 1984 dodge ramcharger and I don't know how to stop the squeaking when. I turn. I know it's not the pump but what do I do
JA: Have you checked the fluids? How many miles are on the car?
Customer: The fluids are fine and there is 99,545 miles on the truck
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Yes I am
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: I've tried to tighten the belt and I've had no luck getting the bolts loose. It is pretty rusty
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Dodge Mechanic should know about your Dodge?
Customer: It was a plow truck for the last 15 or so years, and it sat unused most summers
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Dodge Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello and thanks for using JustAnswer!

Does the squeaking noise sound like a belt squeal, or something in the suspension?

It is very possible for a loose belt to squeal when turning.

Or the ball joints could be making a squeaking noise when turning. i would try by using a grease gun a lubricating the ball joints.

If the belt feels loose it should be adjusted. I would soak the belt adjustment bolts in penetrating oil over night, then try to re adjust the belt tension.
