The alternator flywheel? I believe, correct me if I'm wrong, that you are referring to the wheel on the alternator that the belt goes around. The screeching indicates a loose or possibly worn drive belt. As the belt slides instead of engaging, it screeches until the rubber gets hot enough to finally grip. Eventually, your battery will fail to charge. It could be a simple adjustment is needed via the alternator or a tensioner to tighten the belt. However, If there's any question about the age or condition of the belt, better to replace it before it breaks. This would be important so you can see how it wraps around the various components. The folks at an auto parts store should be able to assist you with this.

If the noise is coming from the area you say it could be loose torque converter bolts or a cracked flexplate. If you do not have one, a stethascope is available at the auto parts stores and that will help pinpoint the area where it is coming from.

SOURCE: Can a 2001 Subaru Outback take an aftermarket stock clutch or do you have to go with a Subaru clutch only? fighting clutch chatter two clutches in two months after orignal clutch lasted 130k miles?

Get a new clutch kit AND flywheel. Don't turn a flywheel more than once, just like with brake rotors. Any car can use an aftermarket clutch replacement (as long as they fit, of course). If you get a lightened flywheel, you'll enjoy better acceleration and mileage (city driving) as well.

Screeching metallic noise front wheel


Look for brake pads grinding the brake rotor. It could be the "screamer" which is a small metal part that contacts the brake rotor telling you the pads are worn. Hopefully it hasn't ruined the brake rotor.

Car makes loud noise starting


sounds like your starter needs shimmed and/or replaced or you have a flat spot on your flywheel. the sound your hearing is from the starter motor gears not properly aligning with the flywheel gears and quite literally grinding material off of one or the other. if you continue to force it your flywheel will need replaced if not already

When starting car starter makes a screeching noise, starter is new


On GM starters,you have to check the clearance between the starter pinion and the flywheel.The usual tool used to determine the clearance is a large paper clip,bend the end out,use a screwdriver to engage the pinion to the flywheel,and see if the paper clip will fit in the valley of the flywheel teeth.Or, just get a couple of shims,and try adding shims until the screech goes away.

Subaru Outback - '03 boxer 2.5L engine sounds like a diesel


heavier oil if you are not in a cold climate. but before you do that have the oil pressure checked. We used to use a can of STP every once in a while on a motor in a dodge we had... nothing wrong with it... was just noisy.
