2000 Mitsubishi Galant 4 cyl ES underhood squeal on right side

I have a 2000 Mitsubishi Galant 4 cylinder es. I hear a loud squeal when I start the car that lasts for a short while and then stops. The noise comes from under the hood around the region near the right tire. It's loud and very irritating to those standing near the car. It started happening in winter and has continued to be like that for over 4 months. I thought it was because of the cold icy winter. But now the weather is warmer and the sound hasn't stopped. What could the problem be?

The probable causes are: 1. The drive belts are slipping. 2. The drive pulleys for some engine accessories are misaligned. 3. You have turned the steering wheel to the limits. 4. The drive belts are loose.5. Your brake drum backing plates are rubbing against the brake drum. The brakes also might be a problem. check the brake drums/discs. Finally check your wheel and wheel alignment.

Be gentle with my rating. I am a long ways away. It sounds like a fan belt. You should pop the hood next time and see how it sounds when you have the squeeling going on. Fan belts will squeel until the get warmed up and then stop because the heat makes them grab the way they are ment too. Let me know, Raz
