Check your belt adjustments for the squealing or replace the belt. As far as the vacuum leak is concerned it could be a leak on any of the vacuum lines. You will need to check the lines manually, start with the lines that connect to the carburetor or injection system. You can use anything that will apply suction on one end and plug the other end with your finger. If you apply suction on the line you should feel it on your finger. Also make sure you test your Fuel cap. I had this problem on a ford Escape and it turned out to be the seal on the Fuel cap.

There is a squealing noise coming from around the carborator not sure if it is the egr valve or not help

You're sure it's up near the EGR valve? EGRs don't usually squeal... Unless it's a whistling noise that resembles a squeal. If it's an open-style EGR valve, you can usually reach a finger in through the cage and open it yourself. Do this and see if it changes the sound, it should also create a vacuum leak and change the way the engine is running. Be cautious, though: DON'T attempt this when the engine is hot, do it right after startup. EGR valves get really hot, as it is exhaust gas that flows through them!

If the squealing goes away when you do this, clean or replace the valve. You can try cleaning it with carb cleaner if carbon buildup is preventing it from seating. If not, you may very well have a vacuum leak somewhere else around the carb if its still squealing.

Intermittent P0191 error code

I had a similar problem that turned out to be dirt contaminated gasoline. The "fix" was always to replace the fuel filter but it would not stay fixed. In particular, each time I started having problems it was after I let the gas tank level get low.

What I did that you can consider was:
  1. But a new fuel filter.
  2. Get a 5 gallon gas can.filled with fresh gas.
  3. Get some cheap gasoline proof container (or several containers) for waste gasoline.
  4. Make a "vacuum cleaner" out of an electric in-line low pressure gas pump, some low pressure gas hose, and a couple of pieces of copper tube, 20 ft of two conductor wire, and two alligator clips. It connects hydraulically copper tube to suck out the gas tank, fuel hose, pump, fuel hose, copper tube to go into the gas can. The wire and clips are to hook the fuel pump to your car battery.
  5. Drive the car until the fuel level is low.
  6. Remove the fuel pump module.
  7. Vacuum the gas tank into the waste gas container through the opening left by the fuel module. Try to get the dirt off the bottom.
  8. When you have vacuumed all you can get, stop awhile and let the dirt settle in the waste container.
  9. Vacuum the gasoline from the waste container back into the gas tank. Vacuum high in the container so the dirt stays in the waste. Try to wash any dirt in the gas tank to below the fuel module opening.
  10. Stop a while and let the dirt settle.
  11. Repeat vacuuming and washing as many times as needed to get the tank clean and empty.
  12. Inspect the tank interior with a mirror and flashlight looking for rust, dirt, etc.
  13. Replace the fuel module.
  14. Install the new fuel filter.
  15. Pour in the new gasoline.
And hopefully you are good to go.

What does the engine sound like when the map sensor goes bad?

The map sensor measures vacuum in the intake manifold, so a faulty sensor would not make a noise. The engine would run lean or rich and the check engine light would be on.
A squealing engine is usually a problem with the serpentine belt or one of the accessories the belt drives.

"unidentified" Fuel System issue - check engine light on

What you have is a vacuum leak in the evaporative emission line.
The solenoid valve or line is broken allowing un-metered air to enter the intake system and is causing the high idle.
Once the leak is fixed, the codes can be cleared and you should be OK barring any additional problems, but the vacuum leak needs to be fixed first.
Let me know.

Check engine Light

The P0455 indicates you have a gross vacuum leak in the EVAP system.
Start at the engine and the vacuum purge valve, start checking the vacuum hoses and lines all the way back to the EVAP canister near the gas tank. Make sure no hose or lines are cracked / disconnected.
If all looks OK, let me know and we will proceed from there. Below is a schematic of the EVAP system for reference.
Good luck and let me know.
