CAR NOT STARTING THE FIRST TIME. WILL START ON SECOND OR THIRD ATTEMPT AND WHEN IT DOES THERE IS A LOUD SQUEALING SOUND.

2000 Infiniti I30 • 131,000 miles

I took my car in approximately 2 wks ago for an oil change and they said that I had a rear main seal leak & a power steering hose leak but no mention of worn belts. My car has only had issues starting the last 5 days or so.

Another issue is when my car has been sitting for several hours or more I hear sputtering sounds everytime I hit the accelerator but once I drive for a little while it stops.

CEL light on? Squeal sounds like alternator belt slipping under load. Could be worn or too loose belt.
