Question about 1984 Volvo 240 Series
High pitched whistle turns to screech when car starts and begins moving. Stops once traveled 10-30 meters. Any ideas???
This is a common problem on many cars. Have you checked the alternator belt tension? When starting a car, the alternators electromagnetic field (which is what provides electrical charge in the coils) provides a resistance to the belt that drives it. If the belt is loose or glazed, it will fly around the alternator, and then go away. Hope this helps you!
