    Well that sounds like a pulley is going bad. You need to try to pinpoint EXACTLY where the squeaking is coming from then we can go from there. Could be the AC compressor pulley, that is where I search around first. Sometimes these squeaking problems can be fixed with a little bit of WD-40. But if you do decided to try the WD-40 try your best to be careful to not get it on the belt or the part of the pulley that the belt makes a connection on.

    EDIT: fixing this annoying squeak will help you to hear and focus on other noises that you are concerned about.

    Now it won't start. Turns over but not starting. It huffs and puffs, and nothing. Before this happened, i was giving it gas, then it slowed down, have it more gas until it was full throttle and it was barely revving 2250 rpm. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I had a feeling it was an IC connection causing your issue, I had that issue a few times on my Supra. Ok, so now that you have it fixed check over all connections, it is possible you loosened something else. If they all check out, look over your MAF and make sure it is pointing in the correct direction and that the connector is on tight. I would also pull the negative battery terminal and press your brake lights a few times to make sure you have no residual power. Reconnect and try starting the car again.

    I would inspect your plugs as well, it's possible that you fouled them out. Dark = rich while ligth color indicates lean. If they are "medium brown" color they are most likely OK. Of course, if you have not replaced them in a while, it would not hurt to do so. Again, the first place I would start is by making sure your IC connections are all secure, I've accidentally left gaps after replacing a connection and caused the issue to become far worse. It happens!!!
