Question about 2008 Ford F 250 Super Duty 4WD
Loose belt - lose fan belt, loose power steering belt are the main cause for the high pitch whine in car. The belts tend to stretch out over time and loosen; the turning engine "slips" the belt upon acceleration of the engine. Starting up goes from a dead stop to fast running - leading to more slippage. Also a defective starter drive or a chipped tooth on ring gear
Manually rotate engine (socket on crankshaft). Make sure vehicle is in neutral is standard and then try to start if vehicle starts probably a chipped tooth if not probably a bad starter drive .
Let us know if you have something more to ask else please accept the solution.

If it was a problem with the turbo as the dealership insists then the truck would have a power loss (yes /NO) , I aggree with the other guy look for a loose belt Or bad bearing on an idler pulley that fan belt rides on , we got salt on the roads here in winter so Im allways having to lube mine with some spray lube or it'll come apart in a month or so , I do wish somebody did make a sealed bearing idler cus id buy one for sure
bad idlers sometimes take a few minutes to "Heat" up to start there Squeeling
