On really cold, or wet days - when i first start the car, i hear an incredibly loud shrieking noise coming from the front of the car. Sounds like its coming from the belts, but i really dont think the belts can make a noise this loud. It can be heard at the end of the street or inside the house even. The noise can be as short as 1 second, or as long as 15 seconds. Then its gone and wont come back until later after it has been sitting cold and / or wet again. Someone mentioned my power steering pump - is this a likely issue??
on really cold days my power steering pump squeals then stops after it warms up a little, never experianced it on wet days
