If the engine is in goodrunning condition, it could be debris in the pulley grooves, cracked and/or stretched drive belt or possibly a belt tensioner. Take some chassis lube and put a little bit on your finger tip and spread it on a small section of the rive belt grooves then start the car. If the noise goes away, it is probably coolant or moisture on the belt.

High squeal from engine area


i would suspect one of the idler pulleys, alternator bearings, water pump baring, you can isolate the location of the sound by using a short piece of hose, hold one end at your ear and with the engine running and the squealing noise evident carefully aim the other end of the hose at the deferment pulley locations, as you get closer to the noise source you will hear a marketable rise in noise you hear through the hose, careful not to get the hose caught up in the belt

Clutch makes a squealing noise


Hello;
The throw out bearing is going oout. The reason you hear the squeal when you push in the clutch is that is when the throw out bearing spins up. Rest of the time it does not spin.It is irratating, You should replace the entire clutch assembly when you replace the throw out bearing. Hope this helps, rate me high.
Thanks;

Timing belt/water pump


it sounds like who-ever put it back together again never tensioned your alternator belt properly and thus when its cold you hear squealing. The hum could be the belt rubbing off of the timing belt cover if that was also put on incorrectly i would think.
It would be beneficial to have it all rechecked before driving it again just to be on the safe side.
