Saturn Other Repair Question
Asked on March 27, 2006
I have a 2000 Saturn LS1 with a 5 speed. Sometimes when the car first begins to move, a loud constant squeal is heard that resembles a bad pully bearing. As soon as the brake pedal is depressed the noise stops and does not return until days later. I checked the brake pads and fluid and they are okay. As the noise is so intermittent, I don't want to take the car in to the shop. Is there anything I could check?

Sometimes a brake sensor/squealer can be out of place and cause the squeal. Check it if you did not when you looked @ the brakes.
Check the serp belt for cracks on the ribbed side. Remove the belt and try spinning the pulleys by hand.
How many miles?
Good hunting and let us know. :)
