Noises problem
2000 Other Kia Models 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 105000 miles

Hi there! I've had a 2000 Kia Sophia for about 2 1/2 yrs. Now. It's UNEXPECTANTLY been a rough car from basically the start (it was bought from a new and used car dealership), though I've always had regular check ups and oil changes (of course spending a lot of money).

When I start the car it will sometimes squeal. It doesn't depend on the weather either. It doesn't happen everytime I start it. It's driving me NUTS because it's a loud and obnoxious sound that lasts for about 40 seconds, and I never know when it's going to happen. Do you have a good idea of what needs to be done? I don't want to get " something" fixed and then done the road it starts up again. Thank you SO MUCH for your help!
