Hello All,

Sometimes when turning on the engine and on neutral , the engine revs at 1.5 and gives an extra screeching noise. The steering also feels a little harder and when I turn it , I hear the same noise . When I start driving revs come back to normal but still makes that noise. Doesnt happen all the time though.

Is it anything to do with steering system or engine itself?? My car has 130k miles and 14 year old.

Probably a slipping serpentine belt. Could be a bad bearing in a pulley.

When was the last time the belt was replaced?
