Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier
I was going down the interstate today and started smelling rubber burning, thought it wasnt me til I started to get off on my exit and then my 97 Cavaliar 2.2L starting making a really loud squilling noise coming from the driver side front. I pulled off onto the shoulder, turned off the car, looked under the car to see if anything was dragging, nothing was. I started the car back up, it cranked fine, it is a manual, and it shifts fine. It made that sound all the way to my destination about 2 miles from the interstate. It feels like something to do with my brakes being it grinds a lot and I could barely stop. What could this be? I havent changed the brakes since I got the car over a year and a half ago, but it wasnt driven for 7 months but to crank and drive around the yard to not mess it up from sitting too long. If anyone can help!! I would really appreciate it!!!!! Thanks!!
I would strongly suggest having your wheel bearings checked out on both front hubs. If you smelled rubber burning...this points to a possible severe front end problem and should be checked out ASAP! How long since it has had a frontend alignment? Also sounds like your brake pads are metal to metal, which would mean having new pads and rotors installed.

Sounds like a belt or pulley bad
