Hey folks, my SXP recently had screeching noise from the engine when I start the engine first thing in the morning, it lasts about 10 seconds then fades away (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-68J5bocqVxzPLIDpabmgd_St6CMoxky/view?usp=sharing). It happens more frequently when it’s freezing cold, have you heard similar thing? My Telly's been in dealership for a week, but they could only duplicate the noise for about 1-2 s which is not long enough for them to find the source, the past week in my area was not cold enough though. They also shared the video with Kia regional engineering and they had no idea about this, just ask the dealership to replicate the problem... Dealer will try it one more time tomorrow morning (will be below 30F). BTW, dealership says that belt, tensioner are in good shape.
