Asked by Jul 21, 2013 at 04:48 PM about the 2005 Buick LeSabre Custom Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I asked a question last week about my Buick and I replied to David who answered but he never got back with me so I'll start over. First, the belts are fine, no fraying or cracking, the front end squeals all the time now, it also makes a flupping sound from left side and the water is just pouring into the front passenger floorboard when vent or ac are on. Can someone please help me. Thank you. Virginia

Seem like you have 2 different issues. The squeeling is probably the tensioner pulley, replace that ASAP. The water issue is a AC evaporator drain clog. I'm sure David will chime in as well to help if I missed something.

the squealing may be the a c pump resisting smooth operation, does it stop when cold is turned off? if so don't use air cond , until looked at,
