It is possible that the wear indicators for the brake pads are touching the rotor, indicating worn brake pads. They probably make the noise all the time, but at higher speeds, the pitch changes, and there is more road noise, so the problem is less noticeable. Depending on how much you drive, and traffic situations, etc, the noise should get a lot more more noticeable within the next couple of days. You will then have to replace the brake pads, ASAP. If not, the pads will tear up the rotors, and then they too will have to be replaced.

Why is your wheel squeaking when you drive but stops when there is no weight on it like if you are in a turn and the weight is shifted to the opposite side of the car?

I had this happen. It was the wheel bearing. It starts off as a faint whine, but over time as the bearing gets worse it becomes a squeal at highway speeds and a squeak at low speeds. If squeaking at low speeds the bearing is on its last legs and total failure is imminent probably causing more expensive damage and repair.

What would cause car to make a high squeaking noise whenever you have the wheel turned slightly but only at speeds slower then 40mph?

It is most likely due to a loose power steering belt. If the steering wheel is hard to turn at speeds slower than 40mph or it gets harder the more you turn it and the squeaking noise happens when you turn the wheel, then you need to check the tension on the power steering belt.

My Toyota Previa as a wineing noise when you accelerate and is getting worse?

Previas have a history of a whining noise coming from the catalytic converter. There is a bracket inside the converter that when loose or has came apart creates the whining noise during acceleration. It especially is very pronouced during high speeds in the freeway. You might be in for an expensive cat converter replacement.

What would cause your car to make squeaking sound when you turn the wheel while parked or in very low speeds?

Loose or worn out power steering drive belt. Usually this is a loose or worn belt on the power steering pump. The pump works its hardest when the vehicle is parked or at low speeds so if there is a belt issue, it will happen then.

What does a squeaking sound that starts when the car is in motion and speeds up when the car accelerates mean?

Have your brake pads checked. If the squeaking sound stop when you apply the brakes it may be your brake pad wear indicators rubbing the rotors to warn you to have your brake pads replaced. If you ignore it damage will result when the rotors and metal brake pad backing or rivets rub after the brake pad linings are worn away.

Is shifting your car in to neutral while driving bad for the car?

If you are driving under 30 MPH it probably won't do much damage, but shifting to neutral at highway speeds and you will ruin your engine. If you start skidding on an icy road (probably going 20 MPH or less) shifting to neutral will take you out of the skid and stop your vehicle immediately. Doing this spared me from colliding with another car when I was skidding in snowy weather.
