Infamous fan or belt squeal this morning

When I started it and drove off I couldn't hear anything....After letting the car warm up at the gas station getting coffee I had to head back home for something.

I pulled in the driveway and ran inside. I came back out and it was squeaking at idle. I noticed this only once before and it was only slightly quieter before.

I blipped the throttle when it was parked and the squeal went away.


I guess I'll mention it to the dealer. Anyone else get this fixed yet?

Someone else posted this in General. It's probably not SRT8 specific but I do remember a couple 8 owners experiencing this.

My Dad's SRT8 did this too, in fact I posted a thread here asking about it - - His has 1200 miles on it now; couple days ago I changed the oil for him (yeah i know you don't have to do it that soon but I figure it doesn't hurt after the initial break in of a new engine...) and washed it and I didn't hear that sound even once. Of course I had to test drive it after changing the oil; got it good and warmed noise. I'm gonna call it fixed for now.
