The car usually has trouble starting on the first try. It'll start and immediately stall. If it's warm out, I can pump the gas pedal once and it starts up fine. Otherwise, it might take a couple more tries and I have to let it warm up for 30 sec. to a minute before I can drive off (otherwise it stalls as soon as I put it in gear and push on the ...

Your rubber is grinding against the front wheel well liner - there is a plastic area there your tire grinds against on full lock because you upsized your wheels. Solution - take a heat gun and warm up the area where the tire grinds, then push it out a bit. Don't overheat as it easily melts. Here:

Sounds a bit like alternator whine. A noise suppression filter capacitor may be bad. A unfiltered alternator would send pulsating DC ripple into the radio creating a whine that varies in frequency. It is usually located on the back of the alternator(or at least it used to be). Alternators generate AC (Alternating Current) which is then converted into ...

Next time you hear it click, come to a full stop, back up a bit, apply the brakes again to come to a stop, and try it forward again, listening for another click. If it clicks again, I'd say either the pads are loose enough to slide a bit or possibly the caliper slide pins. I wouldn't worry about safety in either case.

So I retightened it twice until finally it stopped squealing the third time I tightened it. I had been afraid of over-tightening it, but had under-tightened it repeatedly.

It sounds like you have a drag in the front end accessory drive (FEAD) system. Generally screeching noises occur when the FEAD belt slips. --Could be a dirty or worn belt. You said the car has 97K miles on it, you said "The belts look pretty new, no cracking." Is that a new belt or is that the original belt with 97K miles on it? If the belt is dirty or ...

Doesn't sound like a belt The sounds in the video you posted don't sound like a squealing belt. If your researched has revealed concerns regarding the vehicle I suggest you abandon your desire to own it. The low hum that seems to change frequency without the car changing in speed is concerning. It makes me think transmission but there is too little ...

The oil was low as fk. No lubrication meant the cam would not glide, but result in more of an impact, resulting in tapping sounds.
