  • Help with diagnosis

    Help me out guys, this screeching sound comes from the front of the engine between 2-2500rpm and lasts anywhere from 3-15 seconds. All belts that I can see are in great shape. Car idles fine as well. I am terrible at diagnosing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Belt shape is irrelevant if they're not tight enough. They could be perfect and still slip on the pulleys.

        pull the belt and bend it over 2 fingers. No more than 1 crack per inch.

        How old is the belt?

        Couple of K5's. Lifted.

            Does the car have an auto-tensioner or do you have to manually adjust it?

              it sounds like your blinker fluid is a bit low from leaking on the muffler bearings
