Hi, just got alternator, all belts and airflow meter changed at my Grand Vitara xl-7,2004, 2.0td. Still a squealing noise from the engine. just when i am changing gears and the revolutions going down to 1000rpm for a moment ( driving slow). At the moment only when the engine is cold. Any idea what it could be? Thanks for help.

Did you spin everything by hand when the belts were off??

Can you replicate the noise when sitting parked...

It might be a case of the belts needing re-tensioning? They're notorious for squealing if not tight enough- and new belts do tend to stretch after a bit of driving.

Thanks David, what I thought there is an automatic one, like a spring tensioner, i will have a look at, cheers Kurt

I don't see why a gear shift would make any difference to belt noise, however, increased vacuum resulting from the throttle plate closing can produce a high pitched whistle if a joint in the intake is leaking (this used to be a fairly common problem in the days or carburetors), so check the joints around that air flow meter, especially if it's one that's close to, or a part of, the throttle body.

IF the noise presents in conjunction with higher engine RPM (at the end of each gear change), then it sounds like belt looseness / squeal to me. ;) Can you rev the engine while parked and simulate the same noise?

Bad tensioner, wrong belt, contaminated (oil? coolant?) belt, or an accesory gone bad (bound / dragging). Maybe even a pulley alignment issue.
