    Before you start your truck, get a small cup of water and open your hood. Start the truck and when you hear the squeal, pour a little water on the belt. The noise should go away if it is the belt.

    I have this problem too, belts replaced 3 months ago. Thought about the water spray, but the squeal lasts about 2-3 seconds then goes away. Even after running for a while, engine hot, turn the truck off, then back on, it will still squeal for a few seconds, then goes away. This only happens during when starting.
