2016 with 5.0 squeal on start up??

When I start my 2016 f150 with 5.0 it is squealing briefly and I'm not sure what it is. Its random and don't seem to do it every time and its loud. Anyone else experience this or know what the problem could be? Truck has 44,000 miles on it so i'm not sure if it simply needs a new serpentine belt?

Probably the belt. At 44,000 miles I'd go with a new belt. But, you can try spraying some belt dressing and see if that stops it. It will be a temporary fix, but it should stop the squeak.

Sounds like the serpentine belt is slipping.
Buy a new one, install it, and see if the squeal goes away.

there was an issue on some older models when it was "cold" outside, one of the idler pulleys would squeal for several seconds after initial start...
