I just bought a 1996 base auto 3000 GT, and I have only owned it for a couple
days, and I just got this we really really really loud squealing under the hood
on the driver side not ticking it's a really loud squealing. Sometimes it goes
away for a few seconds like when I stop at a stop sign and make a turn and
then when I'm going on the road it will come back. Can somebody please

Check your surpintine belt,and the idlers,if idlers are good check the power steering pump.


Agreed. Also check harmonic balancer. They are known for making this sort of sound too. Replace it if it's the issue. Also could be timing belt issue. Use caution driving like this till you figure out just what is making the sound. A piece of PVC pipe or hard vacuum hose will give you the ability to listen more closely around the belts.
