On 3 occasions in the last 6 months, my car made a loud siren like sound until it warmed up.
What could it be?
My nephew thinks it is the harmonic balancer which is a little wobbly. I do not notice a lot of vibration.
Is this a costly repair?
Do you
have the same problem?

Maybe the belt, when was it last replaced? Does sound go along with RPM? Louder on cool damp mornings? If yes then belt

Twice it was on extremely cold days. Latest was less than 3 days after I had the serpentine belt replaced

Hard to say without being able to hear and see. Have you had a Tech listen?
