When was the last time the transmission was serviced or the fluid checked? That would be the first thing I would check.

Where is the screeching coming from? The noise might be a fan belt but be sure and have your transmission checked out.

I should have asked if you have a manual transmission. If so the noise might be a bad throw out bearing.
