squeal appeared when i would start to drive. you know, sit in the car, push the button. lower handbrake, put in gear, press gas pedal to start rolling and there it is. the squealing. like a whistle, changing pitch with revs.
then, first gear, second, third and is gone.
you can know for sure that you have problem with a gasket seal if you pop the hood and have someone stand staring at the engine and then you start it. or other way around. preferably in the morning when engine is cold. you should see a small amount of smoke coming from engine area. revving the engine will produce squeal very much similar to when the belts squeal.
hope i helped.
