Squealing Noise

My car, 1998 Honda Civic, 48K miles recently squealed when I started it. But it stops when it's running. I just had the belts replaced last year. Is it time to change them again? Why do they make that noise anyway? Thanks.

belts squeal when they stretch and loosen up and/or the drive pulley's get dirty......

All of what's mentioned here, as well as:

Poor quality belts. They will stretch over time and give a lot of woes. Stick with Dayco, Gates, or OE replacements.

Thanks for the input. Belts were bought from a Honda dealer but were installed by a repair shop. Would that make a difference? The noise is about a second then it stops.

Make sure the tension is correct if they are not of the serpertine/self tensioning variety.

Back to the repair shop to have them fix it right.
