Question about 2000 Ford Ranger SuperCab
It could be a bunch of stuff.
Does it squeal when you hit the breaks and slowing down? -- This could be the squealers, time to replace the pads.
ALSO this could be cheap break pads.
When the day warms up and the heat from the road adds to the heat from slowing down your truck, the cheap pads are "semi-metallic" and this means that there are little flakes of metal in the pads and they hit the rotor and the metal on metal sound squeals like the dickens. Really annoying. The ONLY real solution for this is to spend the money on Ceramic Brake Pads. Well worth the cost if you are like me and can't stand the squealing when slowing down.... it makes your nice car sound like a junker.
If it is squealing randomly when driving, I would recommend you replace the wheel bearing. I had a VW jetta that would SQUEAL like crazy but only in reverse. The wheel bearings were shot on the car and reverse would cause the broken bearings to rear their ugly head.
If it squeals when turning corners, this is your tire pressure. Fill up the tires with the right amount of air, you will find this info on the inside of the drivers door on a white label. In the warmer weather your tire pressure changes and you could be having low tire pressure which causes a nasty squeak when turning corners.
Hope this helps!

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. It sounds like it may be a brake pad. Chances are one of them fell off and that is why you no longer hear it. I would check the pads and the caliper also. Make sure the pads don't need changed and everything looks right Luke.
