Q: Everytime i accelerate my car makes a squealing noise

asked by on January 30, 2018

When i drive my car it gives a little hesitation when I accelerate at about 60 and try to come down to normal speed or when i come to a complete stop and accelerate i can hear the squealing sound and the car hesitates a bit and goes back to driving regularly

My car has 100000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You may have one of your serpentine belt pulleys locking up or the belt tensioner is bad. Check these out to see what one is causing the problem. It may be the water pump also going bad and should have all this checked by a mechanic like one from YourMechanic.
