Question about 1997 Toyota Corolla
It started when i was just going down the road, but now only does it when i start it.
It could be due to a belt loose or some pulley and once the bearing heats up the squeeling stops.

SOURCE: timing belt/water pump
it sounds like who-ever put it back together again never tensioned your alternator belt properly and thus when its cold you hear squealing. The hum could be the belt rubbing off of the timing belt cover if that was also put on incorrectly i would think.
It would be beneficial to have it all rechecked before driving it again just to be on the safe side.

You need to isolate the problem. If it starts when you spray carb cleaner into the throttle body while cranking then problem is in fuel system.(pump, pump relay, filter or fuse) If not, then look into ignition system. Use any manual to get specific testing instructions and do not buy anything till you verify by testing that you really need that part or it can get unnecessarily expensive.
If you need more info on anything, just ask, but at the point you are at, careful testing will tell you far more than anyone here can tell you.

hello gwolfson...from your explanation it sounds like the starter motor is turning but the bendix is not engaged. This happens over time and is caused by normal wear. A click or clicking noise would point to the starter solenoid. Don't wait until you hear a grinding noise to replace it, thats hard on the ring gear and flywheel. A NEW starter is recommended if you plan on keeping the car. If not, you can go with a rebuilt starter for around 65 dollars. Of course make sure the battery terminals are clean and secure as well as the solenoid terminals.
Good luck...i hope this helps and will fixya up.

Your noise is called over-run and its in the gearbox which is also the diff and thats the noise you are getting .
Its the meshing up of the crown wheel and pinion and the only way out of it is to replace the GEAR BOX ASSY with a S/Hand one as you dont get to many doing that noise.
Let me know how you get on. RON
