This is the first time thos has happened. Ive have several vehicles but never heard the weird chirp squeaking sound. It sounds like its coming straight from the engine. I dont think it really is but maybe from a pully? The a/c unit is making noise and im getting it replaced but the new noise is totally different. Should i drive my car or park it till i get someone to look at it.
My car has 208000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
The type of sound you're describing is commonly associated with a loose drive or serpentine belt or one of the pulley's that is connected to these belts. The best way to know for certain is to have a mobile mechanic complete an engine is making a noise inspection; so they can pinpoint the source of this noise and recommend the right repairs.
