One or all three of your belts (A/C compressor, power steering, or generator/water pump) is worn or really, really dry. They are easy to replace... direct access, no prep. Cheap too, under $10 a belt on rockauto. You can also buy some belt dressing and spray them if they are still usable (visually inspect per the manual).

I had the exact same sound on every start up around 110,000, belt dressing would get rid of the squeal for like 2 days, so I replaced them. They were really worn out. Haven't squealed in 40,000 miles.

I put some wd40 on then well see how well it works. If it continues I'll replace them and my power steering hose that's leaking all at once

I have the exact same squeal with my 02 thats at 105,000. Its on and off though. Like 1 out of 4 starts. Its just a belt replacement?

Kind of annoying. Not even that. The hardest part really is getting the belt to stretch that tiny tiny bit over the pulley.

I meant is the idler bearing a critical replacement or is it just to remedy the squeal cause cash is a little tight right now with school starting and all.

first clean out the engine bay and check those belts for tightness

if its still there...

remove all belts one at a time and isolate it. inspect the belts, if they pass inspection probably time to replace some tensioner bearings.
