There are several things that could cause your car to make a squeal when you start it. The most common is a loose or maladjusted fan belt. Fan belts are key components of the cooling system and charging system. So, worn fan belts can lead to heat-related damage and issues with the battery and alternator systems. To keep your car running safely, please bring it to a Tuffy Tire and Auto service center for inspection.
