squealy noise

not a big deal but when im driving and when the rpms get to about 2500 it makes this squealy noise. maybe a loose belt? but i dunno really.

totally different probelm-not every time but pretty often i will turn the ignition and it will take anywhere between 10-15 seconds of clicking to turn over.it has always started-thankfully-but it shudnt take that long.and other times it starts right up.one thing i noticed is if i get right in and start it, it does it more often rather than turning the key half way for a few seconds then it starts fine.

It could also be your tensioner. When was the last time anything was replaced?

Belts are cheap. Look for the Goodyear Gatorback belt. Also try and see where the noise is coming from. It could be anything.

your staring problem sounds like a battery getting ready to fail totally.
By turning the key and waiting before you go to crank, your letting the battery recover alittle. Have someone load test your battery, if it checks ok, going after starter solnoid and/or the starter.

Just my 2 cents
