2 things I'm worried about. 1st, every 10-20 minutes I will hear a single chirping sound (like the sound a chipmunk makes) while driving. It happens regardless of whether I'm idle or in motion..what the hell is it and should I be worried? 2nd, every once in a while in 1st gear I will get a squeaking noise the way some old beat up cars have, but not that loud and not long...and only in 1st gear. Any ideas and should I bring her in?

Ok, but should I be concerned about this or is it something that may just fix itself? What am I looking at? New belts? pulleys? anyone?

Does it only happen with a/c on? I had that problem. I was guessing my a/c belt. It hasnt happened since my a/c stopped working though....

Once I get it fixed, its time to see if its the belt

edit - Fix itself?? lol

Mine kinda makes a 'spit' sound whenever the cooling fans or AC compressor kick on.

Im guessing try tightening or loosening the belt. It could be slipping slightly when the compressor kicks on.

I think thats what mine was doing.
