k when i start it i gotta keep my foot on the gas so it stays on...after like 20-30 sec i can let go and drive it..but if i just try to start it it will turn on but then turn off.

second it makes a fucked up noise when it turns...like in the beginin when starting the turn sounds like something hittin something ....not sure like REEEEEEEEEEEEE and then it calms down....and now i think the fan is hittin something cuz it sounds like its hittin something lol...

The having to wait for the 20-30 before you can drive, might be something to do with the choke, not sure and really hard to tell without being there.

The noise sounds to me like it is out of power steering fluid, which would make the loud REEEEEEEEEEEEE sound you describe.

And lastly, Just start the thing and when it will sit and idle, get out and watch the fan to see if it wobbles enough to hit something.

The keeping your foot on during the first starting, sounds like a carb problem and or the choke. Is it a carb or EFI? The bad noise during starting sounds like the starter is sticking or something, but its hard to tell on here.

my car is doing the same thing with the squeeking noise when you turn the wheel when starting out...my buddy(who is a mechanic) said that its either outta power steering fluid or the pump is bad..could be a belt too.. ;)
