ok, when accelerating, if i suddenly let off (around 4000rpm and up) i get this squeel.... 1st gear doing a burnout, but not standing still, rolling forwards
it has also done this on the 2-3 shift (3000-4000rpm range)
and just now on the way home it did a much longer version of the same squeel, but i was just idling (well just a tiny bit of throttle) away from a stop sign
it sounds like the belt, but it only does it when there is a load on the engine...which leads me to believe it may be the tranny
:confused:
anyone experienced this?

Yup,
I had the same thing happen to me...It will also do it when the AC is on in park If I would rev the engine...Like The great obucina said, replace that thang!

Mine made a noise like that when the idler was going out.

It was slipping across the stuck idler.

It was smoking when I finally saw it while it was making noise. That'll get your attention!
