Squeal during startup using auto start/stop.


Recommended Posts

I have a 2019 Sierra 1500 6.2L.  The truck started making a very annoying sound when it starts during auto start/stop.  The sound is hard to explain but I would call it a squeal. It is kind of high pitch.  At first I thought it was a belt but I don’t believe that is the case.   It only does it when the auto start/stop starts it.  During a normal start it doesn’t do it.  I also think the truck is slow to start and a lot of times jerks as I hit the gas because it is still not 100% started.

 

I had the dealer check it while in for another issue and they said it is normal??      I try to remember to turn off the auto start/stop anyway, but is this normal?  Anyone else have this?

You should look at this thread, could be related. It seems to be happening with the 6.2 w/10 speed. No one is quite sure what is going on. I'm having the same issue but I've chosen to ignore it since they can't figure it out. I don't use auto start/stop anymore and now i only hear it sometimes when i start my truck. It's not the flappers. I thought mine was coming from the flappers too.

My 19 Silverado 5.3 is at the dealer right now for this. Even during idle there is a squealing when slowing to a stop at a red light, starting and stopping the truck it also happens. The service engine light came on when this started happening. When I shut it off the is a noise seconds after with nothing moving.

It's the serpentine belt.  There is a pulley that is very slightly out of alignment with the others.  It came that way from the factory.  It'll go away with a little wear on the belt.
