The noise could be a slipping belt. The belt can slip until it warms up.
You might want to check the PCV valve and air cleaner to make sure the crankcase is breathing normally.

Whistle noise

Start the car, open the hood, remove the oil filler cap off the valve cover, if the noise goes away, the problem is in the "positive crankcase ventilation" system (blown diaphragm).

When I turn on my 97 4 runner there is a squaling noise for a few minutes. Does not happen everytime. What could this be?

sounds like the alternator belt is loose, it stops squealing after a few minutes because the alternator finally catches up with what power you used out of the battery for start up and stops charging so much and there isnt as much drag on the belt then,hope this helps
