I just purchased a used 2010 Corolla 3 days ago. I've only now noticed that when I start the car, there is a squeaking sound coming from the engine. It lasts no more than a second. Sounds like it would be belt related (though my car knowledge is very minimal). I haven't had the car long enough to figure out if it only happens in the morning, but that's when I've noticed it. The car has 26,000 kms on it.
My question is this - is this weather related and normal, i.e. starting up the car on cold/damp april mornings, or is this something I should get fixed at the service centre before it gets worse. I get a free 6 month / 8,000km check up, so if I can wait for that I would.
