    Red face 95 Impreza WRX Making Squealing/screeching noise under hard acceleration

    Hi guys

    Im new to this site thought id see if any of you could help me out with this irratating problem?....

    At high rpm, my wrx seems to squeal/screech intermittently. sounds like a loose bolt or something grinding. thats the only way i can explain it. It comes and goes.

    I have thought it might be a boost leak, but it doesnt feel like its loosing boost.

    maybe its a loose alternator belt?...

    The car has recently had: new cambelt, tentioners idlers, water pump, hoses, head gasket replaced, fuel pump and a new clutch. Mielage is 163,000km

    help would be appreciated thanks

    Alternator/AC or steering belt (the crow external belts) are possible as are their rollers and tensioners.

    If the belts were recently replaced, it's common for them to stretch a little bit shortly after install. I'm guessing they just need to be tightened a little bit more, but also check that the idlers and pulleys are properly adjusted and torqued.
