Squeak on Start

When I went to start the truck at lunch time there was a really high pitched squeal for about 5 seconds. It reminds me of those ricers you see going down the street with squealing cams (I think they are cams). Anyways, it went away in 5 seconds. I got out of the truck and checked around, couldn't hear anything.

I have a 5 speed manual & I started the truck on a hill with the parking brake on & the shifter in H2 & Reverse (clutch in). The noise seemed to go away at the same time I moved the shifter from reverse to neutral. It did not come back when I put it back in reverse or first or let out the clutch 1/2 way for a split second with the brakes still engaged.

Has this happened to anyone? First time I've heard it. Recommendations? Should I start leaving my truck out of gear in the winter? (i know the manual says not to use the parking brake below 32F, but I do anyway).

Edit:
my guess is something to do with oil pressure. Could the angle of the hill (nose down) have limited the oil going to the oil pump on start? Should a pump primer be installed? or an oilpan heater, or should I turn the ignition on and wait 10 seconds to twist to start?

Check your fan belt and serpentine belt. And never use cheep belts, because they squeal like hell.

squeaks like that are usually either belts or pulleys...

+2 with above. Check the belt and pulleys-especially on the water pump and alternator. Usually it's a sign they are failing.

BELT--check and replace--saw somewhere to put "bar soap" on the squeaky belt.
have not tried it--sounds logical. The cheaper belts squeak sometimes.
They also stretch sometimes--especially when new.
BTW--NICE TRUCK!!!!!!!!!!!

Check your belts, check tension...could be the belts but your pulleys could be grooving from not tensioned within spec.
