I've just noticed a squealing sound. It squeals a little when I idel, and gets worse when I accelerate. It sounds like it's coming from the front around the AC, but I haven't used the AC since the coolant leaked out thee years ago. I'm thinking the belt needs replacing. Is that a good place to start troubleshooting? Any other suggestions?

It sounds like a belt is squealing it could also be a pulley i would take it to a shop to have it visually checked.
The front struts may show signs of wear, or be excessively bouncy ride at freeway speeds. This may begin to occur at around 75,000 miles.
