    Unhappy worst sound in the world!

    i need help to figure out a nasty sound. its a 95 trans am, automatic, 113,000 miles, ram air, LT1, stock. when i start the car in the morning (or whenever its cold) it makes a nasty loud metallic whiny sound (almost like a centrifugal supercharger), then it gets louder and sounds more like a metal to metal screeching noise. then it goes away. if i tap the gas while its doing this, something makes a grinding noise and the screeching sound goes away. any help would be appreciated. thanks.

    Put more tension on the belt. It sounds like there is too much slack in it. Take up the slack and that might fix the problem.

    pull off the belt and start the car and see if the noise is still there. if it stops just replace the tensioner.
