Loud squealing makes me think it is probably a bearing somewhere. Try to isolate the sound more. If it is under the hood it could be something like a fan clutch bearing or idler pulley, if its from the trany its probably your throwout bearing.

Why is there a smiley smoking a blunt?

had a pig squeel when i 1st started on cool mornings and turned on the heater. once warmed up it was fine. tightened the belt and it's gone

note-when getting new serpentine belt, take the number off the old one-good chance you'll get the wrong one if you let them look it up. read it here alot and just happened to me. put the old one back on to take belt back and tightened the old one good-new one still in the package and squeel gone.
