Noise after starting car

Asked by Nov 11, 2016 at 06:33 PM about the 2011 Kia Forte

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

For a couple days now my car makes a high pitch
noise when I take off after starting the car.. It last
only a couple minutes. I notice the noise stops
when I break and starts back when I take my foot
off the break.. Again it only does this right after I
start the car and last a couple minutes after that, I
don't hear it again until I start the car again... Last
ninth I had belt and AC compressor changed BTW

Have it checked out by your mechanic, hard for us to diagnose over the internet without hearing it. Could be a vacuum leak to a squealing pulley or bearing.
