loose belt, the belt can be wet, belt tensioner. Those are the probable causes for having the serpintine belt to squeak.

yeah thats a common problem. I'm not sure if it affects peformance, but i know its annoying as hell. Mine is getting worse, now it doesn't go away. if you do a search you'll probably find a million posts about this. so far some think its just the belt, or the bearing. I'm not really sure what it is. I'd fix this but i don't think there is a write up on how to do it, so i'll probably just have to wing it.

IDK, if your celica is getting up there in miles (70,000+), it wouldn't be such a bad idea to replace it.

hell i have only had mine since june ant it squeeks. Mine is coming fomr the alternator pully. Sprayed some silicon lub in it and it went quiet for a week or so till it got cold again. They that out but make sure you dont get any on the bults or they coudl slip off. Pisses me off becasue it makes it sound cheap. Well thenkfully its still under warrenty so eventualy i will get around to going to toyota smile
