Its still squeaks and smells

Hey Guys

So my 99 V6 Firebird was at the garage. New pulleys, new water pump and most of all it is silent. Yesterday I drove a longer trip about 20 minutes and again there it was, this time not so loud but it sings in a high tone. And it also has that little burned smell to it. I do not know what the heck it is, it drives me nuts Waterpump is new, all pulleys are new and all else I have no Idea

Hey Guys

AC runs fine, we first thought it was the bearing, but all of that is takin care of a long time ago. Everything what has to do with Clutch and Transmission is brandnew....

I had a similar problem and it was my A/C but mine wasnt working at all. It could be going out slowly. get a tube of some sort and put one end to your ear and the other to various parts and see where it the loudest

Hey

A/C sounds interesting, is that what make other people thing it could be a bearing noise? I will let that check out, does this cost a smell like burning ?

if its still working that could be a sign that its going out. the clutch in the ac could be making the noise and causing the smell

So my friend came over and he found it...the smell is from the AC, that was this part and that other noise comes from the Power Steering...he is very good with cars, and he told me I need to keep an eye on it...it will go louder and yes the AC will go out soon as well..
