stop doin burnouts haha

need a bit more info, is there a squeel when its running? could be a loose belt,
check around the exhaust manifold, maybe theres a hose touching it, if it happens again, pop the hood, and sniff around, see if u can find a general area where its comin from, that'll narrow it down some
