|Baby steps. Start off just taking him near the car, playing around it, giving him treats, ect. Then open the car doors and repeat. When he's comfortable with that, try taking him in the car, leaving the doors open, and playing/treating him there. Then turn the car on, ect. ect. If at any point he starts screaming, you've moved too quickly. Go back a step, or as many as needed to relax him, and begin again. Don't rush this process or try to do all the steps in one session, it may take several days or even weeks.
Once you get to the point where he can ride in the car, keep all trips very short at first, and try to go places he enjoys so he associates car rides with going someplace fun.
