Weird squeaking noise (only when I push the gas)

I have a 2004 Rubicon, when I hit the gas in 2nd to 5th gear it squeaks. It only squeaks right when I push the gas in and only does it when I push the gas at the beginning, but once I push the gas to ¼ to ½ of the way in it stops. Any ideas on what this could be?
Thanks

Where does the squeaking come from? Is it squeaking or squeeling? It might just be your belt.

At first I thought it was a belt (the noise is more like a belt than say metal to metal rubbing or grinding), but someone told me that the belt would squeak when im idol too, but it doesn't. It only squeak when in gear 2-5, and it only does it every once in a while. It seems I can control the noise by how far I push the gas pedal in, it only squeaks when I have the pedal in between 0 and maybe 15 or 20%.

Squeeking noise on Brand New Jeep Wrangler Sahara 2009

I have a squeeking noise and is mostly heard with top and doors off or if you stand beside the vehicle or the side of it. It is a 2009 Sahara 2 door and the guys at the dealership have no idea what it is....it sounds like a bird is living under there. The thing is the minute I tap on the clutch or put the clutch in it sqeeks. The faster I go the more it squeeks as well. Chrysler seems to have no clue, they couldnt even hear it until I showed them where it was. Any Ideas? I think it might be same thing as you

More than likely it's either the idler pulley or the tensioner pulley going bad.
