Question about 1990 Ford Tempo

1 Answer

Loud screeching noise coming from car after stops.

This loud screeching noise happens for about 4-5 seconds after I make a stop and then continue accelerating.

Example: I stop at stop light and when the light turns green and I hit the accelator, the car starts screeching loudly for about 5 seconds and then stops.

The weird thing is, it will happen for like 4 days and then for a month, it won't. And then it will have a 4 day streak again. A friend suggested a brake issue, but not only have I just gotten new brakes, it doesn't happen while i'm breaking..only afterward as i'm accelerating.

Also..the car often will not change gears and I have to park, turn it off and then restart it and it does better.

Is something wrong with the transmission or..whats happening?

The screeching noise is most likely caused by a slipping belt or pully. transmission probably needs fluid and filter changed.

For a manual transmission, this means your clutch has completely failed. The loud noise was likely not a belt, but the cluch release bearing. I'll bet this was a screeching noise that reduced or stopped when the clutch pedal was depressed.

You'll need a new replacement pressure plate, driven plate, release bearing and anything else that is found to be worn out when the the transmission is removed to do the job. A garage would need 4-6 hours labour to do this.

Screeching noise coming from driver side tire


The high pitch sound may come from the brake pads as metal parts hit the disc to signal the owner that it needs change. The metal parts gets exposed when the pads have worn out. The brake also has a hub to cover the disc. See if the metal plate is hitting it but this issue would appear when the wheels are in motion. Check if it is the belts, have the tension checked out. Other than that the bearings are the other items on your wheel that could cause a high pitched sound when you car is in motion.

98 gs300 loud screeching noise that last for about 5-10 seconds


The only four rotating items under the hood are
engine
power steering pump
A/C compressor
and smog emission pump.
==== I would check the fluid level on the power steering first. Check for pink fluid leak on the ground,
==== Check the A/C system with the wheel turn to one side and APPLY ALL LOADS.
Example: high beam on,A/C max,radio on and deforster on.
This will give you system a stress test.
All eyes on the pully and locate to part that generate the loud screeching noise.
My bet is on the power steering pump.

Please post more info on the comment window.
I will follow up on it.
