probably your belt for your motor. Belt tensioner perhaps?? you have to be more descriptive and precised on to where it's coming from.

Sounds like this... Does it constantly do it then goes away? If it's near the left side of the engine bay around the belt area usually this it the problem. Get it replaced under warranty. Spray belt dressing on it if you have no more warranty. Worked for me thumbsup

If you are under warranty, get the belt tensioner replaced.
