I have a chevy Malibu 08 and I recently had an oil change to it and also had the recall parts fixed too a couple weeks ago. But now whenever I brake there's a loud screeching sound to it and I'm not sure if it's the brakes or not. I would really rather not take it to the shop again unless I really need. But Hopefully someone could help me with this situation. Thank you!
My car has 254456 miles.
My car's transmission is unknown to me.

Hi and thank you for contacting YourMechanic. A loud screeching noise coming from your brakes is caused from a couple of issues. First - consider the last time the brake pads were changed. If it has been a while there is a good possibility that the pads are worn down to the rivet and what you are hearing is the metal rivet contacting your rotors.
If you have just recently had a brake job, brake dust will cause a screeching noise also. There is a paste that can be applied to the brake pads during installation to help quite this sound.
If you would consider, YourMechanic can send a certified technician to you and inspect your brake pads and perform any necessary repairs. Thank you!
