It will drive you "nuts" eh? I know, with the junk I drive, it's the least of my worries- but- go to the parts store, and ask them for a can of belt dressing to quiet your drive belts. Just follow the directions on the can.
If it is a loud screeching noise it is because they are loose and need to be tightened up, and or they are old and worn out
A glazed belt can make that noise. Try rubbing a bar of soap on the belts and start it up. If the noise goes away temporarily, replace the belts.
Could be one of your belts.
All fans will make a "whooshing noise" If there is a squeaking or grinding noise the fan motor needs to be replaced/refurbished.
Your motor bearings will make noise when it gets cold if theya re trying to go out. The grease in the bearings get thick and the ball bearing tend to not turn as well. Normally the motor may get quieter as it gets warmer.
The bushing are bad.
Maybe a bad bearing in fan motor
No , according to the gates website ( they make timing belts etc. ) it is an interference motor in the Mercury Tracer
check motor mounts
different parts inside the gearbox will have driped dry and make more noise after starting from cold this noise should go away fairly quickly as the running gears move the oil around the gear box

When a timing belt is going bad it can make a high-pitched screeching sound. It can sound like a high-pitch whirring noise. Not all timing belts make a noise when they are worn or going bad.
Probibly your blend door motor is stripped out. Remove motor and check door operation manually
Most likely broken motor mounts.
Worn motor and/or tranny mount.
The belts generally don't make a whining noise. They squeak. The whine is probably the tensioner or the alternator. Listen closely you should be able to tell where the noise is coming from. You can also take off the belt and roll each component and feel for bearing crunching.
Metal expands in the heat and contracts in the cold, so the noise you are hearing is the metal growing/shrinking due to the changes in temperature.
many many things, Loose lug nuts which lets wheel make knocking noise. Engine will make a knocking noise if it is really low on oil. Some timing belts make a knocking, slapping noise just before they break.These are just a few examples . Have someone ride in car with you as you duplcate the noise and see if they can determine which part of the vehicle it is coming from.
No , it is NOT an interference engine ( according to the Gates website - they make timing belts etc . )
I just got a new power steering pump and my car is making a screeching sound, even after I changed the belts. What noise does yours make
