the brakes? If your windows are open, is it coming from the (roughly) the front/middle/back of the car?

After it screeches to a halt, are the wheels/brakes unreasonably hot and or smelly? If the rears are hot, is the parking brake not releasing?

If you jack the rear of the car up and just let it idle along in Drive gear, do things spin smoothly? if you jack up the front, do the front wheels turn smoothly?

Did 89's have traction control? Could it be a malfunction of that system?

It screeches to a holt. The engine never cuts, you can feel the power of the engine but the darn thing will not move.
