A loose belt is the most likely culprit, when you press on the gas all of a sudden the engine will respond quickly but a belt driven component like the alternator will give resistance thus causing the squeal.

Sounds like it is time for new brake pads, you should take it in and and have them replaced before you damage your rotors. I think --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Most likely you have a caliper that is not releasing.

I drove it this way for 6 mos. till the pads were gone.
