My dads car makes a screeching noise when its cold. The noise stops once the engine has warmed up. I assumed it would be the fan belt but apparently it is coming from the cambelt area, even though it is making a similar noise. Any ideas what it could be?
Water pump is a good bet yeh, but 99% of the time when theyre making this noise they are pissing water out like your running a bath. I would have said the altenator belt slipping. Could also be the bearings on the altenator. Mine gives out a few squeeks when i start up, it still charges fine though.
