Engine Mechanical problem
2002 Kia Spectra 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 62000 miles

When the car is started there is a loud squealing from the engine. I'm assuming it's a belt. That will last for about 45 seconds. It also squeals when the heat/rear defrost/AC is turned on and when I press on the accelerator. Acts up more so when it's cold. Please help.

First of all thank you so much for your donation. It sound's like you have a weak belt tensioner. You need to have someone go over by the belt while it's started and see if the noise is coming from the belt. Let me know what you find.
