:P Good day all. For the last couple of weeks I have noticed that I need to start the car up to three times before it stays running when cold. Starts fine when warm and seems to run strong, But today I noticed a loud intermitant squeaking noise coming from the right rear of the car(about the same place as the humming noise that the fuel pump makes on start up). I first thought that it might be a slipping belt, but when I open up the engine bay, I can't hear it under there at all. I can only hear it inside the cockpit. The car still seems to be running good, although I admit I have been driving very gentle since the noise appeared and now I am reluctant to drive at all. I plan on taking it in to be fixed, but would like as much expert knowledge as possible before I have to pay for it.

Thanks in advance

cold start problem maybe the idle air control valve. or just set incorrectly.
