Please advise me on a problem that has just happen lately to my Kia Sorento, a week ago I had all the fan belts changed by my mechanic, and everything was running smoothly when suddenly in the last few days I hear a " Sreeching" sound when I first start up the engine in the mornings, and does not show up anymore until I re-start the engine again after I have stopped somewhere.
Could it be a defective fan belt or because its not tight enough or other problems elsewhere ?.
Very many thanks for any help in detecting this problem I have experienced lately. Yours sincerely,

Most likely the belt is just loose. This can happen with a new belt sometimes.
Take it back to the shop and they should take care of it. Don't leave it like that too long, you don't want to damage the belt or the pulley.
