Heating / Cooling System Making Noise When starting When cold
Q: The belt squeals loudly when first started and the air conditioner is on, or when the air conditioner is first turned on. It will go away after a short period but it seems to be lasting longer.

Ignition System Malfunction When driving When warm
Q: My car will not idle when the temperture outside is abve 70degrees F. I will run fine up until approximately traveling 10 miles. When stopping at stop lights with foot on brake it will lose rpm and cut off. I can sometimes cheat and shift to neutral and it will maintain a very weak idle. It may cut of when the weather is extremely warm such as 80 degrees F, (even in neutral) and give me a hard time when attempting to restart. It runs fine in temperatures below forty degrees. At warmer temperatures such as 50 to 60 degrees the problem becomes present when a lot of starting and stopping is done or for a long period of time ie. when running three or more errands back to back with out much engine cool down time, between trips.
