Default Screeching noise on start up???

I am assuming its the belt or a pulley but give me your opinion.

After I start it it makes a screaching sound for about 3 seconds. Belt doesn't show any cracks. Sounds like the belts slipping, but I don't know what else it could be.

This might help, when I sprayed it with water to get it wet and then started it, it didn't make the screaching sound. What would that help/why would that make it go away. Whats your opinions???

Hamsters are getting old. You'll need 5 new young ones, and some croutons. Should fix it right up.

Change your accessory drive belt, it's slipping. That is usually the culprit. Also, it is cheap and you can do it yourself in 15 mins.
