    so, this has been going on for about a year now, but ive only gotten around to posting it today. whoops. anyway, sometimes when im climbing through the revs in first gear, a belt will squeal. it usually happens just before i shift and it sounds a whole lot like any 20 year old toyota or pontiac...
  2. Screaching Noise at 3200

    My 1.8t makes a screaching noise at 3200-3300, ALWAYS when the car is cold and I've heard it a few times when I think it was almost at 190. New steering belt, new timing belt. It's so consistant at exactly 3200-3300 rpm.. like clockwork... Sure sounds like a belt squeal or even a (loud!)...
