CAR NOT STARTING THE FIRST TIME

Will start on second or third attempt and when it does there is a loud squealing sound. I took my car in approximately 2 wks ago for an oil change and they said that I had a rear main seal leak & a power steering hose leak but no mention of worn belts. My car has only had issues starting the last 5 days or so.

Another issue is when my car has been sitting for several hours or more I hear sputtering sounds every time I hit the accelerator but once I drive for a little while it stops.

Do you
have the same problem?

CEL light on? Squeal sounds like alternator belt slipping under load. Could be worn or too loose belt.
