Why is your fan belt squealing?
The accessories on the engine cause alot of torque to be placed on the belt. When you first start the car the device whos belt is loose wont be up to speed and the belt spins causing it to squeal. Same thing if you are at a stop sign and step on the gas to go. The engine speeds up but the devise has to catch up. This is usually a quick fix and one person can do it. Some cars have a belt tensioner built in and it only takes a few turns to fix it. Others require a little longer but I havnt found a hard one yet.

When a car makes a whining sound when accelerating, it might be a fan belt that is not performing properly. If the fan belt is reasonably new, add a few drops of dish soap to the inside to quiet it.

Why would a car belt start squealing intermittently then get really bad and happen more often and then go away within a 3 month time span without any servicing?
Check if the belt if worn. If the belt is worn, check to see why that happened and fix the problem. If the belt is not worn, the squealing is due to some unwanted substance that came on the belt such as dirt, antirust, or oil. In this case, I also recommend that you replace the belt regardless if the squealing has disappeared because there is a chance that the belt may slip.

NOTE: The belt tensioner has a built-in wear indicator - it'll be hard to see, but there really are markings on the side to…
