Default high pitched squeal at 2000 rpm

just replaced power steering pump and now have a heckuva loud squeal that starts around 2000 rpm .. keeps getting louder as i step into it, but pitch does not change .. also had a BD "black" flexplate put on, if the sound could be transmission, as has been suggested .. any help, much appreciated [img]/forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/Brick.gif[/img]

Sounds like the new pump or maybe the tension pulley bearing?

i just put a new belt on .. noise still there, but doesn't start untill 2500 now .. only in drive .. held brake on and brought her up to about 3000 before the sound came in .. also tried without the belt and got up to 3500 with no sound .. checked alternator pully, rolls smooth .. any way it could be transmission or turbo? .. thanks for your chiming in ..

Check the belt tension regulator (it's down by the A/C compressor). If the sound goes away with the belt off, then that's probably where the problem is. It could also be something else inline.

My original tension regulator died at around 105K on the odo.

Yes, it made a loud annoying chirp from idle to about 1500ish RPM from what I recall.
