Hey Greg==Need a bunch more information. What kind of car, what engine and where the squeeks seem to come from and when does it squeek. It is just too general to try to diagnoise.GoodluckJoe answer squeeking is most likely to be caused by dry bushings in your suspesion also dry rubber mounts on shck absorbers, and dirt on shock absorber shaft try spraying wd40 into all the rubber bushings etc that you can see. might try giving car a complete lube job,as dry balljoints etc will squeek

Usually it is the brakes that needs servicing.

Most people will tap the brakes of a car when their car is going downhill, usually to keep the car under the speed limit. The squeaking noise could be the brake rotors or the brake pads.Ê

Dirty brake pads could cause a car to make a squeaking noise when putting the car in gear or when releasing the brakes. Cleaning, sanding, or replacing the brake pads should make the sound stop.

When break pads begin to wear out they are designed to squeek to let the driver know that they are on their way out. When you hear squeeking during regular use of your brakes, it is time to think about having them inspected and/or replaced.
