    It's weird that your car is making a screeching sound even though the transmission and radiator have been replaced recently. Neither of those things has been replaced in my Subaru Impreza, but it's still making a similar sound. It gets worse when it's cold outside. I'm going to take my Subaru to an automotive repair service to see if they can get rid of the noise. Maybe that would work for you too.

My ford transmission is slipping. was rebuilt 5 years ago.

5 years is a long time and you don't mention how many kilometres you drove since the rebuild. These transmissions, like any other automatic, need the oil and filter changed on a regular basis to avoid untimely demise.

Well if your lucky, drop the tank and have it cleaned, put a new fuel pump strainer on and a fuel filter, maybe there is no other damage, don't run it any more till all is repaired

Just had new clutch fitted on 02 ford focus 1.6 now making noise but stops when i press clutch down

A couple of things comes to mind, when you press the clutch you disengage the transmission. When the clutch is not pressed the transmission still spins inside even when it is in neutral. Sounds like a bearing inside the transmission is making noise, did they put fluid back in the transmission? Also another common source of noise is the throw out bearing, it is on the input shaft, it is the actual part that presses against the clutch pressure plate, usually though they make noise when the clutch is pressed and quiet down when released.

Why won't my 1992 Ford Econoline van start

I suspect the fuel pump has stopped working, check the fuel pressure or listen to the noise it makes by taking off the gas cap and listening for a humming noise when the key is turned on, this will stop after a few seconds.

Engine runs loud at certain speeds

It sounds like someone has been rough on the car. Your transmission may almost be shot, or you need a flywheel repair kit. If you get a flywheel repair kit, you can save your transmission. A flywheel repair kit is cheap. But a transmission aint cheap at all.
