By squeak do you mean right after it starts or does it have random little squeals?

Is this the tensioner pulley? If so the bearings in it may be dry

Default squeaky puilley

Hi. I had the same issue and it turned out to be my tensioner pulley. Instead of buying a new one--which is too easy-- I removed it and repacked the bearings in it. You can remove one of the outer races and snap it back in when you are done packing the grease. Just be careful when you remove the race, since it can be ruined very easily. (plastic)... Use wheel bearing grease and the noise will be gone instantly. Don't use too much since it will just spray onto your hood insulation and nearby accessories--messy!

Let me know if that helped.

Todd
