My 2004 pt cruiser started making a screeching noise. It now has 62000 miles on it. It will do it for a minute and then stop and then start in again 5 min later. Water pump? Bearings? Air conditioner?
I just went out and started the car, it will start screeching on it's own and then quit. If I turn the air conditioning on, it seems to start screeching louder and then go down to a lower pitch. It does the same thing with the heater but not as loud. In the off position it will quit, but will start in on it's own.
I had a problem with a part in the air conditioner this summer when I was out of state and the mechanic I talked to could not get the part and we had a medical emergency and had to leave before he could order it. He cleaned the valve and it worked fine, that was three months ago. Could this be the problem?
