Screaming engine noise 04' V70R wagon

great car, but in very wet conditions, water on the roads or slush, a load screaming sound comes from the engine. If I slow down, it lessens and goes away for a while. Or if the conditions become dry, it stops.

The likely culprit is a slipping drive or accessory belt due to moisture. Have your belts checked out.

thanks Andrerw, I’ll give that a try

I’m going to agree with Andrew. A slipping belt is the most likely source of the noise.

If the belts are original it’s time to replace them.

Belt/s ordered. I let you know how it works out.
