Car makes squealing noise at times

1996 Saturn SL2, 1.9L, 4 cylinder. My car makes a squealing noise at times when I first start it. Sometimes it starts when the car is idled, and sometimes I don't hear it until I put it in gear. Every once in awhile I'll hear it when I am at a stop light or when I run my A/C. In all instances, it is a loud squeal that goes for a short time while I am driving and then stops. What could this be?

I replaced the belt, but not the idler. I'll give that a try. Thank You.
