Squeal on startup?

Question for you all

Upon ignition, I hear a distinct squeal, only lasts a sec and sounds like the main belt is sticking or loose. I have 33k miles

Happens either cold or after running, seems to have just started after the weather has turned cooler

I am sure turning that beast over is a strain... But think a new belt is in order or just tighten or something else?

It's your belt tensioner, especially noticeable as the weather gets colder.

It is a very common issue, your not the only one to experience it....... If your still under warrantee take it to the dealer and they will replace the tensioner for free. Just another example of Chrysler using cheap low quality OEM parts in our Grand Cherokees
