Re: Screechy noise when starting 2001 Impala
Does this noise occur as the engine is cranking over to start, and as it just start up? It's probably the belt slipping on the pulleys. If the belt is original, or showing any cracks and splits, replace it. Keep the starter. countrycurt0

I need more info. But if you turn the key to start and you are getting a clicking sound and smoke from the starter area then might be a loose connection at the starter or battery. It could also be a short in the starter. send more info for a better responce
Sounds like the serpentine belt is slipping and perhaps struggling to turn pullies.. this would result in horrid squealling noises especially in cold damp weather and loss of power steering ability when A/C is on
(A/C on equals extra strain on the belts grip, when turned off the A/C pulley spins freely hence less strain)
sounds like the starter is not disengaging the fly wheel quickly like it should when you turn the key the starter cog connects upto a fly wheel that has teeth all around it when the teeth of starter cog connect between teen on wheel it spins it to crank your car then goes back to starter if you hold your key on after starting the noise you hear is the starter cog(teeth ) still engaged in wheel if this is the sound it needs to be serviced not neccassarily replaced
