Default Squeals upon starting

Hi all I'm new and I was looking on here because my 02 pt cruiser starting squealing real loud when I started it but then it stopped as I drove until I came to a light..... FYI my bro in law came and looked and my Alternator was so loose and after he tightened it ( quite simply ) the squealing stopped and I'm so relieved I didnt have to take it to the shop!!!

Welcome aboard, and good thing he found that before the belt slipped off. If it had, it would have done a lot of other damage. Good catch. So, post some pics of your PT, we always want to see all the newbies cars. Tell us about it, what kind of modifications, if any, things like that. Always good to meet new members!!!

So welcome from Lake Norman in Mooresville, NC!!!

Thank You,
I took a pic of my cruiser but I dont know how to make it an avatar???? So I put it in my album. I am buying it from JD Byrider to build my credit, so, I'm not allowed to modify it But I have so many ideas... I rather keep this than get a new car and have more payments lol... Thanks again for the welcome
See ya online Toni

I'll PM you some info, and you can send me your picture and I'll create an avatar for you, actually several so you can pick which one you want. Then I'll also explain the easy way to make it your avatar! Okay???

We just learned recently from another new member that there is a nationwide pandemic caused by a rogue flock?---herd?---congragation?---bunch?---gagle?---swarm?---s%*tload of chipmunks that are setting up house on the accessary belts of automobiles everywhere. The squeeling part comes into play when you start your car.------TRUE STORY------





JK That was an inside joke, so don't feel bad if you didn't get. Most people don't get my stuff.

and welcome from the okeefonokeevilletonburg swamp in sunny Florida. Home base for the aforementioned testy chipmunks.
