I have a 99 a3 1.6 sport, the problem is some times it makes a screeching noise on start-up this happens whether its warm or cold or if its been sitting over night or turned off for a minute, also occasionaly fails to start and I have to floor the throttle to get any response,

any one encounted this type of problem before or know what might been causing it?

thanks in advance

A fan belt can make a funny screech, but wouldn't make it not start.
A good start would be to check the tightness of the belt,not totally sure but about 1cm. or so, of movement is about rght.
Also a spray of wd40 on the belt & pulley might help.
