I guess right after the screech it engages and starts. If so the be six is going bad or the solenoid.

It has a solenoid that drives the gear forward to engage the teeth on the ring gear. It is sticky stalling or getting lazy.

Yes a new starter is probably in order and soon because you can wear the teeth down on the ring gear and then you will need to replace the flywheel which means a trans drop. Not fun.

Are you sure the screech is coming from the starter and not a belt? I know it's a rookie mistake but nonetheless one I made:banghead:

if your getting a screeching noise then that is going to be the bendix going bad. pull it and take it to the local auto parts store and have them test it.
