Question about Saturn SC2
The most likely problem is a failed valve seal. This is common for the1.9 , and I bet you've got a lot of miles on it. I picked up a 2002 SL last year cheap, making the identical noise that disappeared upon acceleration, but returned at idle....one of the valve seals exhaust side failed. The best course if action is to put a replacement cylinder head on it, but it's not going to be cheap. The price will be about half of what the car is worth.

A door-closed switch is failing 'open', I suppose. Most likely the drivers' side one (which gets the most use?), but it could be any. Replace that ******! (Ask for details at the Saturn Parts counter.)

Sometimes pens, coins, etc... fall down through the shifter seal and get lodged in the park lock cable not allowing it to release the shifter. When you step on the brake pedal the cable unlocks the shifter allowing it to move (safety thing). Remove the shifter console and inspect for foreign objects in the shift linkage. While inspecting with the key on (not running) keep stepping on the brake pedal to see the action of the cables under the shifter. Then remove object causing the cable not to function. If this turns out not to be the problem, then pop your hood and locate the top of the transmission. Find the shift linkage and see if the jamb is there. I sincerely hope that this suggestion helps you to locate the problem. Best wishes.

You will need to Change the Fuel Pump and Fuel Filter and Also Check the Belt Tension. If it is even a little loose it will not Charge the Battery and could cause this problem also. Let me know what you find.

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