Q: Q: What is wrong with my car?

asked by on

So I got a car not to long ago and I went to drive it to work and halfway thru the trip the car sputtered out and died. The car has a squealing noise when it starts and is sitting at idle but the noise lowers but is still there when I am driving. I am pretty sure it isn't the alternator because that was replaced about six months ago. So I have no idea what is wrong with the car
My car has an automatic transmission.
