Hey guys when I just get going in the lower ranges of first and second gear i hear this squeaking noise coming from the engine bay. It mostly happens when the engine is under strain any ideas as to the problem.

Belts, clutch, other things that squeak? By under strain you mean going up a hill for example or going down a hill in a lower gear? What kind of squeak is it a rubber squeak a metal squeak? Have you googled it yet? If you cant find anything on google you probaly need more information, we cant do anything for you either without more info. From the info i would say that youre leaking some fluid onto your belts and getting nice and squeaky
Edit: Left this out being under strain could be the only time those fluids leak out but would wear away pretty quickly on your belts possibly explaining why you only get it under strain

It really sounds like metal scraping with more metal and it mostly happens when you are accelerating. That makes sense because I use fluid film for rustproofing and I spray that stuff all-over the place. Thanks

Highly doubt it's the belts, why do they make belt dressing spray if petroleum products are bad for them?

My guess would be a loose heat shield on the exhaust or something. Pretty hard to troubleshoot without hearing it though.
