Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, and welcome to just answer. If you have to pump the pedal, then there is a problem with the choke on the carburetor. Have a shop or dealer check and adjust the choke. As far as the squealing noise, it probably is a loose or worn belt(s), so have them check and adjust it if needed.
I hope this helps, and if you need further assistance, then please let me know!
