Question about 1993 Pontiac Bonneville
I try starting it after I put in a new starter. Now it just makes a loud screeching noise.
Is it possible you installed the wrong starter? Parts stores are not always accurate on replacements. Different engine size and year can make a huge difference even though the new part may look very similar. Double check the part numbers, year, and size of your motor before install. Double check proper seating of the starter on install and reuse the original shims if any.

You need shims on the start. some of the older gm cars need shims when a new starter is installed

One of the belt pulleys likely has a bad bearing. watch the pulleys for binding while it's running or remove the belt and check each pulley by hand. AC puts more strain on the belt...if the belt is not new and pulleys check out, (and tensioner is working properly) change the belt.

check your belt tension. Tighten it up and the noise should go away. if not, replace the belt and tension it accordingly.

Have you cleaned the corrosion off the battery terminals and battery cable? Corrosion lowers the amount of amperage that can be pasted from the battery to the starter.
