SQUEALING NOISE WHEN I START MY TRUCK COLD

2002 Ford F-350 • V8 2WD Automatic • 77,000 miles

2002 Ford f-350 Truck mileage: 77,000. When I start my engine, cold only, I hear a squealing noise, like the serpentine belt. The noise goes away after the engine warms up a little. About a year ago, I replaced the belt with a Ford factory belt. Help?

Try replacing the spring loaded belt tensioner.
