I am new to the forums I was wondering if anyone knew of any shops I can take my 328Ci to in Newport News, Virginia. Car has a squeeling noise I dont know much but I'd guess its a pulley. It happened during the cold season and is not as noticeable during hotter temperatures.... but still noticeable. Any help?

Pics coming soon :)

squeeling noise is coming from underneath the hood and it only happens for the first few moments when i start the car, sometimes not at all.

It's the mechanical belt tensioner. The proper fix is to replace it with the newer hydraulic belt tensioner.

While in there, if you're still on your original idler pulley, water pump, thermostat, belts, hoses, might as well do those too...
