A squeal is different from a squeak. If you have a squeal, look under the hood. Could be a belt or pulley bearing. If it is a squeak from under the car, could be an exhaust heat shield or broken hanger. Is the squeak accompanied by a rattle?

Pull up next to a wall on the drivers side. Let the car idle. Listen for your "Squeak". Now move the gear selector from park to first. Listen for a difference in the sound. Now move the gear selector from first to second. Listen for a change in the sound. If your "squeak" changes when you shift it from first to second ,,,, it's a bad engine mount.
