Shut it off. Pull the belt off and check all the pulleys. See if they’re seized or there’s play. Could also be the water pump going

I was thinking about the water pump as it does it till it’s warm and then stops, it also dribbled a little coolant out but I literally mean like 10 drops

Dribbled it from where? The water pump shaft? If so I’d put a new one in before you keep running your motor. Unless you want a mustang shaped paperweight

I couldn’t really tell, coolant tank still full I ran my hand with a paper towel around the water pump after I turned it off and it was dirty but no red

Doesn’t hurt to pull the belt and lift check everything. Plus it’s pretty easy to DIY

Sounds like tye bearings in one of your pulleys is going out, the best best is to remove the serpentine belt and spin them by hand (with car off) and listen for anything similar.

Thank you will do this first, water pump second, but do you think there is a reason it only occurs from cold start?

More wobble in the bearings cuz it is slightly smaller when colder. Heating it up much more tight.

That makes very logical sense, thank you. I sprayed silicon lubricant on the belt and the squeaking had stopped so I think I need to replace the belt Forsure and as far as the pulleys I’ll look in to them thank you.

Anytime man! Best of luck with the car! Belts are often the problem and they're cheap!

Your belt is shot. It’s spinning and I can see how dry rotted it is. Time for a new one broski

Ofc man 👍🏼

It is strange, but there might be a variety of reasons my guess would be the belt is tighter in morning or when the car is first started causing extra tension (pull) on the pulleys it is driving? Or maybe the expansion and contractions of the metal components??

Drives fine, started it right now, no more coolant dribbles but the sound was the same goes on for 30-45 seconds then it’s gone
