Hello! I have noticed that just lately, when I start the car, if the Temperature is a bit colder, for about 10 seconds just after I start my 93-MX6 4-CL, there's a SQUEALING sound coming from the engine. What the HELL is it?? It goes away but, sometimes comes back but, only for a second or two! Thanks,

Sounds like one of your belts to me. They often squeal when they are wearing out, and usually only do it at startup. I suggest looking closely at the amount of wear on the belts. It could be as belt tensioner I suppose.

Depending on which belt, how expensive is it to fix? And should it be fixed right away??

If it is just a fan belt (not sure if an MX6 even has one) then it should be cheap. The belt should be 15 CDN or less plus a little labour. You might want to look into it as it will only get worse. It probably wont break or anything until it starts squealing ALL of the time.
