Is Your Mercedes-Benz Making a Screeching Sound from Under The Hood?
There are a few different causes that can be causing this high-pitched sound. One thing it could be is a misaligned or old belt that needs to be replaced. If the sound you are hearing continues after you turn your Mercedes-Benz off, it could be your radiator or pressure cap.

I am so glad you stated that if the noise continues after turning my car off, it could be the radiator or pressure cap. My wife told me that there was a high-pitched noise coming from the engine. When she gets home, I will take the cat to a mechanic to inspect it.
