Hi and thanks for using 2CarPros.com. The noise you described sounds like an accessory belt noise. Here is what I want you to try. Start the engine and open the hood. Pour a small amount of water on the accessory belt. If the noise changes or goes away, the belt is the problem. It could just be dried out and need replaced or loose.

Here are general directions for replacing a noisy belt:

If you find the belt is the problem, here are specific directions for replacement. Note: You only listed the vehicle as a "Wagon". I assume you mean the Esteem Wagon.

I attached a few pictures which correlate with these directions as well as a belt routing diagram.
