HI,

My 99 Protege makes a loud squealing noise on when it is started after it has been parked for two or three hours.

A mechanic attributed it to loose belts (not sure which ones) and tightened them but that hasnt helped at all.

Any ideas / help will be appreciated.

Thanks.

Most likely you need new belts. Alot of times even tightening old belts will still end up with a squeal. Also using a low quality belt will have the same effect. You best off to use a good Mazda belt. Or a gates belt. Steer clean of poly cog, they tend to stretch
