WD-40?

9 posts in this topic

Did I read on here awhile back that WD-40 would work for a belt dressing?

You may have read it, but its not a good idea. It will make your belts chatter and be more noisy.

I thought this was a secret that was revealed by someone in the know on this site? Maybe I'm dreaming? crazy

I think you may be referring to the tip that shackbash gave us a while back which was using di-electric grease for squeaky belts. I have been doing this at the shop since he mentioned it and it has worked well. Especially after coolant flushes whenthe belts get wet and start to make noise. I haven't had any complaints so far!!

I may be mistaken but I thought I heard one time that dripping a little dishsoap on a belt works well to stop the squeeling. Anyone else heard that one?

Hey, I thought that was me grin

It was in Chrysler TSB's from the mid to late 90's to help with coolant getting on the belt during repairs and I have it since on any type of belt.

I have not tried dish soap for squeaky belts but I do use liquid cascade to flush out oily cooling systems!
