    how many miles on car? squealing noise is probably belt, is it constant or does it ever stop squealing? to test if it is belt take some liquid soap in a squirt bottle and spray a little on the inside of the belt grooves and let the car run a while if it is a belt it will quieten down. if it gets quiet you will probably need to change the belt., has the fuel filter ever been changed and the air filter?

2005 toyota corolla sometimes will not start

When it doesn't start does the engine turn over but not fire up or does the engine do nothing and there is a clicking noise? I assume that the battery has already been checked and is good.

2005 corolla makes a very loud noise -squealing type - when first started, as it warms up the noise is barely noticable.

Sounds like you have a loose belt. A cold belt is stiff and slippery, but gets softer and more tacky when it is warm. The belt may either be worn, or just loose. If just loose, there may be a way to tension it, but in most cases, the belt is worn and needs replacement.

Toyota 2005 Corolla Squeaking belts and belts have already been replaced 2 yrs ago

Probably the belts just need to be tightened, and this should eliminate the squealing. However, you should check them thoroughly for signs of wear or cracking.

Toyota Corolla, manual 1991, Squeaking sound when turn the steeri

This is normal for a 210K Toyota Corolla. What you are hearing is the sound made by the power steering pump. Check fluid level and fill as needed. Some noise in the instances you are mentioning is normal.

1991 Toyota Corolla loud and sluggish

You need to do a compression test on the engine cylinders. It appears one of the cylinders is not firing and dragging the rest of the engine down in power. The compression test will show if one of the cylinders has a problem.

Squealing engine

My guess without hearing it, is that you have a loose or worn belt causing the screeching, or squeeling noise your hearing, but as far as sluggish goes, that may be another thing all together. I'd suggest having your belts looked at and adjusted or replaced as necessary. Once it's confirmed or not that your noise was from that or maybe even a tensioner, then we can go from there. In the meantime, chek your oil level just as a precaution, if you haven't lately, and top it up as needed. They are usually a pretty reliable car, so I wouldn't hit the panic button on it being an engine problem yet.
