screeching sound at start up

Whenever I turn on my car that mofo starts sreeching loud as hell like if a belt was loose. but that's not the problem. The belts are new and properly tightened, so what else could it be?

Re: screeching sound at start up

It's the belt, take a candle and while the car is running, run the candle on the inside of the belt. (not lit, rub the wax) The noise should go away.

sounds nut? try it.

Re: screeching sound at start up

Re: screeching sound at start up

If the car's fairly cool, you can also run it for a couple seconds while it screeches, then shut it off and feel the belts and/or pulleys. The really hot one is your culprit.
