There's a loud chirping noise when I drive my 92 eagle summit, what would that be and how serious is it?
I think it may be the alternator belt, but I know almost nothing about cars.

You really do need to provide a little more information. Although if it is coming form the engine compartment, you might have some bad cam bearings or maybe bad alternator bearings. My advice would be take it to a repair shop asap, so it doesn't leave you stranded somewhere.

Probably brakes are low. They are designed to make that noise so you know they need replaced. Not serious at all, all brakes pads wear out eventually.

Could be the fan belt, if it is coming from the engine.
