We need more info on the screech.
I tried to pin point it but its just a broad, loud noise. It sounds the same on the left of the engine as it does in front and on the right side. It's not fresh oil in the car. It's newly bought but after a week of having it was when I had to do some work on it; starter, solenoid, ignition, etc so I haven't drove it in a couple weeks.

So should I go ahead and drain the old oil and put the new 10-30 in it? My first guess is for the screech is lack of oil and possibly the oil is bad and not lubricating all the parts properly

Usually would have something more than screeching with lack of oil in my experience. It couldn't hurt but it makes me wonder if it was a pulley. Was the ac on? Could be the compressor. Can u take a video and post a link?

No ac in the car. Ill go ahead and change the oil just because it needs it and for peace of mind. If its still screeching after that, then ill go ahead a shoot a video of it and then it may be a little easier for you or someone else to diagnose what else could be going wrong

Yeah. Sorry brother, it could be a hundred things. It's all guessing until we can hear it for sure.

No problem, just glad people on forums are helpful and knowledgable. Helps a lot and keeps me from having to keep bringing it to a shop

Yeah, belts right. Looks like it needs replacing soon but it has good tension. No slack anywhere

I hate say this but I think that was a dowel pin wedged in your starter. Probably another one is still floating around your flywheel. If after the oil change and pulley checks, you still hear screech, you may have to check the flywheel.

I'm hoping for the best and hope that's not the issue but when I should that little piece to a friend, he was saying the same thing.

Does it make my situation worse to keep starting the car? Just asking because I wouldn't want to make it worse by doing the oil change and then start it, loosen the belt and check pulleys and then start again

Is the pin tapered, or straight?

Hard to say without seeing it, they more than likely came from around the main shaft. You won't know till you get into it, what ever it is, it'll be obvious.

You can do it, but a lift will be much easier. Get a 30" extension and remove all the bolts from the bale housing , lot easier than trying to get your hands in there.

Should be able to separate the tranny easily and push it back enough to get to the flywheel. You'll need a jack for the tranny and the car on jack stands or ramps. I feel better under ramps. Good time to check u joints and replace if needed.

It's not the flywheel, the piece he has is a bearing, the squealing is just more evidence.
