The engine in your particular model was equipped with a timing chain, not a belt. The screeching noise that you are describing could be due to a faulty bearing in a pulley that is in the "circuit" of components driven by the serpentine belt. Other causes of such noise are the belt itself (improper tension) and there is also a possibility that the belt driven components are not rotating in the same plane. If you request a vehicle noise diagnostic, the responding certified mechanic will definitely find the origin of the noise and get this resolved promptly. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
