If the screech varies when the throttle is applied it could be the bearing of a tensioner or idler pulley for the serpentine belts. If it is a high pitched whine it could be a water pump. Take it to someone with some automotive experience and have it diagnosed. Then have the worn out part replaced. Hope this helps. "G" You might want to check your belt also. My car was screeching too and it was the belt, even though the belt didn't look bad at all. I was kind of shocked that that's all it was. Simple fix. R1-guy
