It is possible that my EVAP emission carburetor air vent control valve on Honda VT 600 1998 published a squeaking sound? Thanks for the answers

If it is making a squeaking sound then the sound would be constant, more of a whistle. If there is a squeaky noise coming from the unit it is likely to be either a loose bolt or a perished seal or rubber in the valve.

2002 Mercury Cougar Squeal

Just for testing, a few seconds, will the vehicle start and run w/o the belt? Have a helper work the throttle, is the sound gone? If problem not the belt, check the belt driven accessory. Sometimes you can use a long metal rod of some kind, with belt on, one end of the rod touches accessory housing, the other end goes on that bone behind your ear, helps to magnify the sound. I guess you could use a mechanics stethoscope to do the same thing. Have helper work the throttle while you listen to each. Don't get tool or anything caught in belt. This is a serpentine belt, I haven't looked?
Maybe an accessory trying to freeze up or bad bearing? I can't think of anything else at the moment?

My 92 Honda vt 600 shadow has started to make a squealing sound

By tick over I am assuming you mean when you engage the starter to start the bike.
This sounds like your starter sprag clutch is slipping.
The starter clutch is located behind the flywheel on the left side of the motor.
Hope this helps.

My cbr250rr mc22 is slow to responed.

Im not sure, and i would only be able to diagnose if i could hear it myself. Was that a full clutch replacement, or just friction plates. Did they replace the clutch basket and install new clutch plates and springs. its possible that maybe the clutch bearing is going bad but thats a long shot at best. You should be able to tell if it is a clutch problem when its running good, giver all shes got all the way to red line and see if she slips or starts to make a noise, please do it safely, if that all checks out good then i would say you probably do have a fuel problem. Just need to put some Seafoam fuel cleaner/stabilizer in the tank 1/3 can two gallons fuel and since your going to change the filter just fill up the filter with the cleaner and drive bike around for at least 10 miles that should remove anything cloggling up the jets, get the fuel problem taken care of first, and then you can start to try and locate the squeal. make sure you got plenty of oil too. Hope you get her running right!

1994 Honda Accord- squeaky brakes

Could just be cheap brake pads. If you don't want to squeal, get a good quaility brake pad, and make sure the rotors are smooth.
