Buick lucerne squealing engine

Unread post by Klein00 » Wed Oct 13, 2021 2:24 pm

My 2008 v6 Buick lucerne makes a very loud squealing sound when running and gets louder with acceleration. I removed drive belt completely and started car without it and still same sound. What's causing this?

can you tell where on the engine the sound is coming from? Front? Rear? left? Right? Is it a squeal like metal rubbing on metal? Or, is it more like a whistle? If it gets louder on acceleration does it go away on deceleration? Is your engine normally aspirated?

It is very difficult to diagnose a noise with hearing it and hear where it is coming from.

If it does sound like some thing squealing in the engine because it's not getting oil or something I would have a shop listen to it and have them give you their opinion.
