Squealing Tires?

Is it a tire squeal or brake squeal?If it is brake squeal put high temp synthetic brake lube grease behind the brake pads to reduce/remove the brake squeal.This allows the pads to sit on a bed of grease and will not vibrate at the frequency which produces the squeal.

96 monte carlo was driving today with no problem after I got home and was parking the car and it shook,then shut off. I tried to crank it but nothing happened,and tried numerous,it doesn't even...

Yes it saounds like it so 1st thing to do is to check radiator coolant 2nd check engine oil (is it full) 3rd check gear box fluid if all ok then you have either the startes is jamed or a dead short
If any 1/2/3 have a no instead of a ok then let me know and we can sort it out from there
