    engine squeel

    When the engine is cold there is a squeek- squeel . doesn't sound like the belt, it sounds more like a bearing....it does go away when the engine warms up. is there an idler tention pully or another item that is common to fail that would make that sound?

    Any of the engine mounted accessories (that is spun over by the serp belt) could likely make that sound. Locate the sound with a mechanic's stethascope.
