Question about Mazda 626
When I accelerate, the car makes a siren sound that gets louder as well. Been also having issues with power...while driving, the lights, radio etc will just go out for a second or two. Not sure if related.
Truth is it could be any pulley on the serpentine belt configuration. Basically the squeal is caused by a bad bearing on anyone of those . You might want to put your ear (be careful) as close as possible while revving to see if you can locate it. If that doesn't work take off te belt and check and see if any one of the pulleys wiggle ( indicting a bad bearing) . If you don't feel comfortable locating it take it to a pro.

It sounds like your alternator is about to go out.

Could be carbon build-up on the pistons, causing erratic flame travel in the combustion chamber... 'pinging'...... Decarbon the engine and use a high grade fuel for a few tanks.... also an octane booster can help

I believe the bearings in the front wheel are about to come to the end.
Have it checked in a garage.... NOW! otherwise you will be driving on 3 wheels... sooon.
