Q: After a loud metalic squeal, truck will start but won't run.

asked by on

2000 Ford Ranger XLT 3.0 V6. Serpentine belt's been squealing but wasn't appearing to slip. Two days ago truck started making noise like a plastic ticking sound. Parked it and when starting it this morning, it made a metallic squeal. I turned it off, then tried to restart it and it starts, but won't run. The fan and serpentine belt seem to be in place.

My car has 158000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
