Ford ranger 4.0 v6 I got a belt noise or some kind of sqeaking noise and it only seems to happen on cold starts and the sqeak last like 5 min until the engine warms up.

The truck only has 75000 miles so you think that would be it

Mileage does not matter. Weather conditions are a major factor. Change them and I think you will have no further issues.
