I have an 04 CTS-V. Over this winter when it was very cold (<25F) and sitting in the open garage during the day, I would noticed a screeching noise when the car was started that lasted for a few seconds. When it was warmer outside and/or in the garage at home the noise did not occur. Now it seems to occur on every start. I suspect it is the starter. Am I correct? Could it be that it is not disengaging properly? How long before it fails and I need to replace it? Could it be something else?
