SOURCE: Loud screaching sound when Starting

It sounds like the belt is slipping,and as it does, it warms up, grips better, and the noise stops. Check the serpentine belt tensioner, it should have a scale (range) that shows if your belt is stretched beyond it's serviceable use, which could be the problem, and an easy fix. Let me know how u make out.

SOURCE: while driving car mad a loud screeching sound,

The belt is worn out,and something may have done this.Remove the belt .and turn all the pulleys,see if one of them is trying to lock up,or will not turn.If all the pulleys check out o k,then install a new belt,and start the vehicle,see if the problem is still there,if it is,the alternator maybe the problem,when loaded,the alternator maybe locking up.I think the belt is worn out,and streched out,and,or the tensioner is bad,but most likely the belt is worn out.

SOURCE: 2008 dodge nitro change oil light how to turn off ...

Directions are in the book, but you would put the key in and turn it all the way, just don't start engine. Pump gas pedal all the way to the floor 3 times slowly, but it has to be with 10 seconds. Turn key off and when you start again, oil changed chime and warning should not be on. If it is, try again.

Loud screaching sound when Starting


fan belt or drive belt loose or worn. If it has tensioner, try replacing belt, if it has an adjustment to tighten, Inspect belt and if o.k. just tighten it, but I suspect belt worn too.
