Just had my serpentine and auxiliary belts replaced, but there is still a (low pitched) screeching coming from the engine when revving (pulling away) in first or reverse, especially from cold. Any ideas what this could be?

Low pitched screeching? do you mean high pitched?

Loose belts, dodgy bearings?

Wouldnt say its high pitched, its medium pitched maybe! It doesnt sound healthy thats for sure.

As i say, belts have just been replaced, and the sound hasnt gone (as i thought it would).
