2001 Honda Prelude H22A4 Squeal on Startup


Hi I'm back again and my car squeals on startup for 1 or 2 second then goes away. The squeal only happens every other startup or on my first cold startup. I've disconnected my power steering and I know it's not that because it still makes the noise. However, when I disconnected my alternator, the sound goes away completely. Is my alternator belt too loose or too tight? I'd like to also note that I'm missing a locknut that goes under the alternator which is pictured here, called the adjustment locknut. I'll be getting the nut tomorrow so could that be the fix or not? What's going on, any ideas? I'm so close to fixing my car that it bugs me. ahhhhh

Belt is either too loose or on its way out. Mine would squeal too on startup and when I would put my ac on, just replace it with a new belt for peace at mind

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
