Mitsubishi Lancer 2005: Squeaky fan belt

Answered by CarsGuide 6 May 2010

In the old days mechanics would probably apply a little grease like Vaseline to the belt and send you on your way, and you could try the same, but I reckon yours might need to be re-tensioned or it might even need a new belt.

Or the problem could be caused by incorrect oil used at service or, in the worst case, a lack of proper servicing.
