i suspest the alternator belt..when you start it up pour a little water over the belt and see if it stops..(make sure that you dont get it in the alternator..)

probably the only drive belt that you will see in the engine thats uncovered..possible that you might need a new alternator belt or even may need tightening..as the do stretch and wear away..i should go to your local garage and ask them to check it, or a friend that knows about vehicles..
