Hey Folks!

This has been happening intermittently for a couple years now, but is recently occuring on a consistant basis. Every morning when I turn the key, the engine fires up, but it is accompanied by an annoying 1 second squeal! It basically happends on any cold start up.

I'm driving the 2001 GT1. Any ideas on what this is? How to fix it, "do-it-yourself" style?

Cheers!

Could it be a bad belt or something along those lines?

Belt tensioner? Had that on my GA

Thanks for your responses guys!

Belt huh? I'm not too mechanically inclined so I'm not sure what belt that would be. Is it because it is rubbing against a pully or some other object?

Cheers!

Hello again! I thought I'd bring this to the top again... Now that my car is running again, I'm getting this squeeling from the starter EVERYTIME now. Has anyone come accross this?

Cheers!

Its only when you have the key to start, or right after it catches?
