buzzing or squealing noise

The last two days when i start 1999 wrangler 4.0 sport i get a buzzing or squeaking nise kind of like a belt squeaking but it doesn't change loudness when i give it some gas. after a short drive, maybe 1/2 mile it doesn't happen after it's warm stopping and starting running errands. thanks for any help or ideas. tom

I had the EXACT same thing happening with mine when it was extremely cold last week. It sounded like it was coming from the front end. I shut my engine off as I was traveling about 40mph (5 speed)to see if the noise was still there and to let me know it wasn't the engine, and it did keep doing it. The weather here is in the 40's, 50's and 60's now, and it doesn't make the noise. Only when it was well below freezing. 20's and even teens.

At some point during jeep ownership, you will BUST A NUT!!!

same thing here...My jeep is 6 years old, never had this happen in previous winters, like you other guys, when it is warm (weather-wise or driving wise) it stops....I didn't perceive it as a belt problem b/c in idle there was nothing...started at about 30 mph...ideas? It seemed to start after a pretty good snow, and yes, i went out to play...thought it might be some type of it just allergic to the cold?
