Squeal only when Cold

Recommended Posts

Hi...I have this annoying squeal when I start my car and the engine is cold.  It lasts only for a few minutes (when the engine is revving high to warm up, and when I press on the gas).  After that, it goes away and never happens when the engine is warm.  I'm assuming belt or tensioner?  It's a 2014 DJ Ltd. with about 74,500 miles.  Seems a little early to need a new belt IMO, but perhaps this is a common issue?

I've been having this same common issue in my 2016, which is not listed in the TSB. It only shows up in this sub-zero weather. Fortunately, if it poses a problem, I am covered under warranty.
