Loose fan belt?

Put the car in neutral, set the parking brake, open the hood, get someone to listen/see where the sound is coming from, as you press on the accelerator.

    Sorry, meant the "drive belt" which operates the power steering pump, air conditioning compressor, and generator.

    Other comments still apply.

Car is making a high pitch squeal some times when driving,noise gets worse when I take foot off the gas pedal. Also has odor of boiled eggs at times. Is this a tranny problem or emission system failure or...


The high pitch squeal ia most likely the serpentine belt on the front of the engine you can buy some belt dressing from the part store and put it on there and fix that or some soap will work also, the belt may also need to be tightened. As for the egg smell if it smells like eggs it's the catylitic converter doing it's job and is normal, although you should not be able to smell it inside the car when driving you may have an exhaust leak and could be very dangerous carbon monoxide exposure.

1995 dodge neon below 10mph foot on the brakes the abs noise no light it sounds like a drinding noise


Brake pads are worn out. The ABS light would not come on because there is nothing wrong with the ABS. The grinding you are hearing are the brake pad backing plates rubbing against the rotor. You should have heard a high pitched squeal long before this happened. More than likely the rotors are now destroyed and will need replacing or at the very least turned in a machine shop. Fix this yesterday.
