Re: Screeching sound and over heating
Without being able to see your vehicle in person, it sounds highly likely that your water pump is the cause of your problems. It is turned by your engine belt. The belt could be loose, or the squeal could be the belt rubbing around the pump pulley, if the pump is seized.

The coolant sensor is reporting to the comp. that it is running a little warmer than it should. When the gauge goes up is where our concern lies that could be a worn thermostat, low coolant, coolant sensor,, fan switch , clogged rad etc. It sounds like the fans are working when the gauge drops. Get that checked before it advances to something serious. Now its just maintenance. Good luck Frank M
does the screeching noise only happen when you put your foot on the brake-if so then you need to replace the brake pads-when you step on the brakes with a warped rotor you can feel the brakes pulsating-if you had a lower ball joint going bad it would make a rusty hinge sound-you should check at a shop that does front end alignments they can tell you for sure if its a ball joint-I would have them replace both sides and get an alignment done-cheers Denny p s they could check your brake pads too-
as for noise will have to inspect under hood,could be fan or belt or pulley ,water pump .these are some things it could...My suggestion for overheating is replace thermostat. If your car has electric cooling fan then it may not be working..turn defrost on and if fan kicks on then fan motor is good..Now this does not mean that fan is working properly because fan is controlled by heat sensor switch that kicks fan on when motor reaches heat range......Things i would have checked....hope this information helps and good luck and Please rate my post...
well check the coolant level. it sounds like you had a vapor lock and that would cause steam to escape and cause connections to get wet. this may have cause your battery to read dead. if you aren't low on coolant then i would start with the thermostat. that is easy to change and cheap. if you have low coolant then you may have vapor lock. to fix that you need to let the engine cool down and if you have a radiator cap remove it. look inside you should see coolant. if you don't fill up the radiator with coolant. with the cap off start the jeep and turn the heater on. let the engine warm up. watch the temp gauge and keep looking in the radiator. if you don't see coolant keep add it. at times it will bubble and burp this is normal. keep checking the temp gauge. now see if you feel heat coming out of the heater. if your feeling good heat then the system is circulating. (this mean your not in vapor lock anymore) let it keep running and keep adding coolant till it is full in the radiator. once full put the cap back on and fill the coolant tank to the full point. keep running it but keep checking the temp to be on the safe side. if the temp stay steady you should be good. hope this helps. please rate.
Sorry for the bad news but it sound like what you described as a failed head gasket and your looking at another rebuilt engine. Inspect your oil level and condition for any signs of coolant in it and inspect your coolant level and see if it's low or contaminated with oil too.
Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.
Hello senior, whenever the coolant system is opened up there's a possibility you could get air in your system, only way to get it out is by using the bleeder valve, check the coolant temperature sensor it may not be working properly, it tell's the cooling fan when to kick on and off, the condition of the drive belt is also another factor, along with the tensioner and tensioner pulley. it sounds like a problem with the water pump, the cooling fan, or air in your cooling system, to get a good inspection of the water pump fin's you have to remove it.
check your power steering fluid level if it's low refill it and see if you still hear the noise then take it to honda and have them find and repair the leak. the brakes are screeching like that cuz you may have had to make a quick stop in the past and it glazed the pads by over heating them, it should go away but if you are concerned you can always get a brake inspection
