Answers :

Have you checked the conditionof your serpentine belt? If the ribbed side of the belt looks shiny, it has probably been slipping. It is common for a worn belt to slip and screech on startup due to the extra load on the alternator.
Usually screeching is the belt. It gets old, hard, and stretches. Also you have a tensioner that can weaken over time. To test if its the belt pop the hood and have some water handy that you can get on the belt/ It will get quieter for a minute when water is applied. When you have the belt off spin all the pulley and feel for smootness as they turn. If you suspect a bad pulley replace it.
