Screech when shifting
Just wondering if anyone has experienced the following?
My 5.4L is producing a screech sound at the shift points that I originally presumed was the belt, or at least it sounds exactly like a belt slip.
And b/c I thought it was the belt I didn't (haven't) really panicked, I just planned on replacing it whenever I got the chance.
It only tends to do this if I've got my foot into it and shifts at higher RPM's, generally through the first three gears.
Now before I go ahead and replace a belt that I just replaced last summer, I'm wondering if a serpentine belt would actually squawk like that???
I thought I would check here and see if anyone else has had this issue and or discovered its origin?
Or if anyone thinks it could be a tranny issue?
Also, my exhaust is a little too loud to really hear and pin point the location.
Thank you in advance for the heads up
