Re: My 1997 seabring had a high pitched noise while
From your discription, sounds to me something vital in your transmission has went out. Pull the dip stick and smell the trans. oil if it smells burnt chanses are you need a rebuild or replacement. Even if the oil dosent smell burnt, with that kind of millage and the shuddering when it shifted leads me to that conclusion.

Oct 2, 2013 - I recently had new fan belts installed after hearing a high-pitched, ... Do you hear the noise when the engine is running and the vehicle ... Just replaced water pump (and timing belt) yesterday and squeal ... When driving it make a noise but change out and caught speed the noise is coming from driver side.Missing: 1999 plymouth breeze
at night, it is cold, your drive belt gets worn other time, when it's cold at night it doesn't get much grip, so it squeaks, what you can do is tighten it up, find which one is loose by pressing on them. The concept of belt tensioning is simple, look it up, on all cars work the same.
Run 12V directly to the motor and see if it will run, if it dosent than the motor is bad, if it does than the resister is bad, the resister makes the blower run and also regulates the speeds for the blower, but chanses are if it was making a high pitch squeel before it quit the motor went out.
Check your battery first. Cold weather does horrible things to car batteries... if it's more of a grinding sound I would say that your starter gear is bad. I believe they call it a ring gear? I had a similar problem with a kushman scooter that I use to deliver snowcones through the neighborhoods. It has teeth that need to engage and if those teeth have been grinded down it will have a hard time engaging....
Did you get the right starter? Did you put the starter straight? Did you lock the screw evenly? where this noise from?You mentioned the noise like high pitch grinding noise, is it from the starter area or flying wheel?
