Removed the EGR valve and tried to start. Engine still will not start. Tried to start this morning, engined fired for a split second but then died. Squeeking sounds like its coming from the upper front part of the engine but not certain, working by myself. Tried diagnostic reader again but no codes are being displayed.
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I took the belt off, recharged the battery and sprayed stater fluid in the intake. The vehicle still will not start and the squeeking is still there and tends to be louder after the car has sat for awhile. While cranking the turnover is not smooth but rough and irratic. After multiple attempts at starting the squeeking is not as loud but is still there. I also found out the altenator light had been coming on but not staying on before this happened, don't know if its relevant to the currnet problem.
Yes it still makes a loud squeeking noise
The car still makes the squeeking noise with the belt off the altenator. Cranking is not smooth but irratic while attempting to start. Vehicle still will not start.
