Strange Squeal

Hey Peeps...

I have finally joined the fraternity of Bravo Owners!!!
Had a quick peek on the forums earlier but couldn't find anything quite in respect of my problemo..

Car fires up no probs, but just as the revs come down there is a very noisy and ear piercing squeal coming from under the hood...
Have no idea what it is, but don't sound good...

Car does not do it again.. only on start up..

any ideas????

BravoJonny...

Re: Strange Squeal

does it squeel higher if you accelerate more and then just stop or is it when you turn the key?

it may be the starter motor or the belts as mentioned.

Re: Strange Squeal

do you have aircon?

check the condition if your belts and tensioners firstly as mine does this, but only after having removed the aircon pump to replace the manifold, have got to ponse aropund re tensioning the belt accordingly (and annoyingly as the aircons fubared anyway...)
