I would first try the pulleys by either spraying some lubrication on one and if the squealing stop I would replace that pulley if not try lubricating the other pulley. You can also use a stethoscope to listen and pinpoint which pulley it is. This is a common problem with the cabs I work on.

Makes loud noise


It sounds like one of your CV (constant-velocity) joints is going bad. This is common on front wheel drive vehicles. The CV joint allows the drive axle to pivot as you turn the wheels. Over time the protective boots crack, the grease leaks out and you end up with the knocking noise you describe when turning while accelerating. The dealership should easily be able to inspect the CV joint boot and diagnose the CV joint.

Jerky accelerating, late response to gas being pressed


Well for one, make sure you speed up slowly, dont HIT the accelerator. It may also be problems with your fuel filter. After you are stoped fuel stops running through the fuel pump/filter and then when you start going its starts to run through again and it cant keep up so it gets bubbles in it and doesnt move throught the filter easily hence the jerky accelerating. Good Luck
