How are your brakes? The pads may be worn to the point where the pins have popped out which can result in internittent or constant squeeling/grinding sound kind of like fingernails on a chalkboard.

Well if the boot is busted that needs to be fixed, but I would agree with 2Rusty that it might just be worn out brake pads. I live in Louisville so maybe I could pop down and take a look at it. :shrug:

change the timing belt lately??? if you didn't, i get it checked asap, my friend luke didn't change his, and all 24 valves were greatly damaged
Actually, this is one thing you can do, use a scan tool, if you don't have one, buy one, they are only a few hundred bucks, haha.
Sry i'm not much help, the story about my friend luke is true. he sold the 6 the way it was and bought a probe, then he sold the probe now owns a eclipse, but get this, his winter car is a automoatic sundance, haha, man, i have no clue what the hell i'm talking about, i guess i had a bit to many :drinkup: i guess i should stop writing and start :smokin:

the v6 in the mx6 is a non interference engine, ie if your timing belt snaps the valves will not hit the cylinders.

The F2t, F2, and FE-DOHC in the first gen mx6's are non interference as well.

However, shady mechanics will jump on the oppertuninty to charge a clueless person for "Head repair" after a broken timing belt.
