Exclamation Squealing noise when I start my car.

I have a 72 Camaro. I put a 383 stroker motor in it. I just recently changed my alternator, water pump, and power steering pump along with all the pullys. I started the motor up the other day and it ran good. Then I hit up to about 3500 rpm and it started squealing. Sounded just like a belt squeal. So after looking I found it isn't a belt squeal. I took all the belts off and it steal squeals bad. Somebody said I might have spun a bearing. I took the oil filter off and checked it for metal shavings and it was clean very clean. So that ruled that out thank god. Then somebody said the starter sounds like its not disengaging but I checked that and it is. Then somebody said maybe the Transmission is low on fluid so I put some in it and its still making the same noise. It sounds just like a belt squeal but 10 times louder. If anybody has had this problem or knows how to pin point I would sure appreciate it.


Thank You, Dustin

Have you checked for a vacuum leak ?
Had this before and found the carb gasket was the culprit.

Re: Squealing noise when I start my car.

Have isolated the area where it is squealing from, engine, rear end, wheels, etc? Does it do it only when car is moving or at idle as well?

Re: Squealing noise when I start my car.

invest in a elcheapo mechanics stethoscope and have a play...
Covers all the posts above.
u would have found it without having to even remove a belt...
And instead of removing a belt... wipe a little candle wax on each , one at time... or simpler still, pour a little water on each.. see when the sound disappears.
