Makes a squeling noise right at start up for about 1 or 2 seconds, some has told me, might be problem with starter drive not disengaging because of weak spring? Or solenoid

If the noise is from the starter, the starter bendix is not returning as fast as it should due to lack of lubrication.

If you mean right after it starts then it's likely the alternator belt slipping and squealing.
