SCREACHING WHEN PUSH ON THE GAS PEDAL

I have a 1998 Dodge Intrepid that I've put ALOT of money into (new engine in 2006 & lots of repairs) Just had the heating/cooling unit fixed and now after the car has been running for a while when I push on the gas it makes a short screaching noise and stops, also does this when I turn left?? Whats wrong with it now?

Slipping serpentine belt.
Have the belt tightened/replaced by a mechanic.

When you steer either direction, the power steering pump is harder to turn by the engine as its now pumping fluid hard to help you steer easy, but causing the belt to slip and you hear screaaaatch....

Try tightening all the belts first; tighten them where they have only a half-inch play when pressing your thumb on the center of the belt between the longest point between to pulleys. Then try it also check power steering fluid level and oil levels. Also try wiggling the fan and see if it has any free play and then get back to me to help you some more.

MY truck is fuel injected what would make it so i have to hold down gas pedal to finally get it to start then die


Sounds like you have some injector problems or the fuel pressure regulator. If the check engine light is not on, I would look for something allowing extra fuel into the engine.

Reach in under the dash, under the steering wheel and pull the cable end off the gas peddle. Open the hood, disconnect the cable end off the throttle body, then haul the cable through the firewall from the engine side. Replace by doing the reverse.
